The authors consider childrens in the family and in social institutions, their emotional and educational environment, and their symbolism in Christianity. They demonstrate that, despite often difficult living conditions, the great majority of children were surrounded by family affection. They also illustrate the misery of orphaned and abandoned children, the ravages of disease and war, and the exploitation of children as slaves and beggars.
