1 Review

This groundbreaking collection brings the Middle Ages to life and conveys the distinctiveness of this diverse, constantly changing period. Thirty-eight scholars bring together one medieval world from many disparate worlds, from Connacht to Constantinople and from Tynemouth to Timbuktu.

This extraordinary set of reconstructions presents the reader with a vivid re-drawing of the medieval past, offering fresh appraisals of the evidence and modern historical writing.

Chapters are thematically linked in four sections:

  • identities
  • beliefs, social values and symbolic order
  • power and power-structures
  • elites, organizations and groups.

Packed full of original scholarship, The Medieval World is essential reading for anyone studying medieval history.
