Description
Few periods in history evoke such a vivid sense of wonder and mystery as the Middle Ages, an era glamorized by literature and film for its knights and castles, but in fact defined by feudalism and constant warfare. In this history, the author of The Sun Kings surveys this turbulent half-millennium, which saw the Norman invasion, the Crusades, the Hundred Years' War, and the dawning of a new era for art and architecture. Additional chapters and sidebars discuss the papacy, Muslim rule in Spain, anti-Semitism in early Britain, and the Knights Templar, as well as profiling such figures as Petrarch, Giotto, and Jeanne d'Arc. This book includes dozens of color reproductions of paintings, sculptures, maps, and illuminated manuscripts, along with contemporary photographs of some of the key locations.
