Description
With more than 800 illustrations, nearly all in color, this is a sweeping visual re-creation of the medieval world—its peoples, its defining characteristics, and its culture in the widest sense—from the fall of the Roman Empire to the dawning of the Renaissance. Each two-page spread presents a number of captioned images illuminating a specific topic, including the papacy, monasteries, popular religion, kingship, knighthood, courtly life, Gothic cathedrals, manuscripts, life on the land and in the city, cosmology, magic, the romance of chivalry, the Moors, the Jews, and the mysterious East.

"[The author] introduces the Middle Ages through eight major themes, which are then illustrated by selections of medieval art. The arrangement is intriguing and thematic.... Within each of the broader chapters are subtopics illustrated with medieval art depicting the topic as interpreted by the people of the time. These sections are cross-referenced to other related topics by color-coded notations on the bottom of the pages. Many features make this book particularly useful to students—a 35-page biographical dictionary, time lines, maps, a glossary, a bibliography, and a list of 22 web sites devoted to medieval studies."—Library Journal
