    'The modern subject was invented in the Middle Ages' argues Haidu, and the constitution of the subject was an integral part of medieval state-formation. Surveying texts, from the Oaths of Strasbourg to Francois Villon's Testament, the study explores 'modern' practices of government and medieval 'takes' on the processes of subjectivation in their relations to violence, voice and textual structure.
