Book Description :

Deftly written and beautifully illustrated, The Worlds of Medieval Europe, Third Edition, presents a distinctive and nuanced portrayal of the Greater West during its medieval millennium. By integrating the histories of the Islamic and Byzantine worlds into the main narrative, author Clifford R. Backman offers an insightful, detailed, and often witty look at the continuum of interaction - social, cultural, intellectual, and commercial - that existed among all three societies. This compelling volume surpasses traditional textbook representations of the Middle Ages by balancing the conventional focus on political affairs, especially those of northern Europe, with equally detailed attention to medieval society as it developed in the Mediterranean. In addition, Backman describes the ways in which the medieval Latin West attempted to understand the unified and rational structure of the human cosmos, which they believed existed beneath the observable diversity and disorder of the world. This effort to recreate a human ordering of unity through diversity" provides an essential key to understanding medieval Europe and the ways in which it regarded and reacted to the worlds around it."

Book Description :

This is the most authoritative account of life in Medieval Europe between the fall of the Roman Empire and the coming of the Renaissance. Full coverage is given to all aspects of life in a thousand-year period which saw the creation of western civilization: from the empires and kingdoms of Charlemagne, the Byzantines, and the Hundred Years War, to the ideals of the crusades, the building of great cathedrals and the social catastrophe of the Black Death; the cultural worlds of chivalric knights, popular festivals, and new art forms. The chapters show the movement of the centre of gravity in European life from the Mediterranean to the north; and the authors explore the contrast between Byzantine and Renaissance cultures in the south and the new, complex political and social structures of north-west Europe, which by 1300 had the most advanced civilization the world had ever seen.

Book Description :

What is the difference between a stabbing in a tavern in London and one in a hostelry in the South of France? What happens when a spinster living in Paris finds knight in her bedroom wanting to marry her? Why was there a crime wave following the Black Death? From Aberdeen to Cracow and from Stockholm to Sardinia, Trevor Dean ranges widely throughout medieval Europe in this exiting and innovative history of lawlessness and criminal justice. Drawing on the real-life stories of ordinary men and women who often found themselves at the sharp end of the law, he shows how it was often one rule for the rich and another for the poor in a tangled web of judicial corruption.

ISBN : 0879072636
Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

This book surveys the full panorama of ten centuries of Christian monastic life. It moves from the deserts of Egypt and the Frankish monasteries of early medieval Europe to the religious ruptures of the eleventh and twelfth centuries and the reforms of the later Middle Ages. Throughout that story the book balances a rich sense of detail with a broader synthetic view. It presents the history of religious life and its orders as a complex braid woven from multiple strands: individual and community, spirit and institution, rule and custom, church and world. The result is a synthesis that places religious life at the center of European history and presents its institutions as key catalysts of Europe’s move toward modernity.

Travellers Intellectuals and the World Beyond Medieval Europe

Travellers  Intellectuals  and the World Beyond Medieval Europe Book

ISBN : 1351877607
Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

As the articles reprinted in this volume demonstrate, medieval men and women were curious about the world around them. They wanted to hear about distant lands and the various peoples who inhabited them. Travellers' tales, factual such as that of Marco Polo, and fictional, such as Chaucer's famous pilgrimage, entertained audiences across Europe. Colorful mappaemundi placed in churches illustrated these other lands and peoples for those who could not read. Medieval travel literature was not only entertaining, however, it was also informative, generating proto-ethnological information about the world beyond Latin Christendom that provided useful guidance for those such as merchants and missionaries who intended to travel abroad. Merchants learned about safe travel routes to foreign lands, about dangers to be avoided on the roads and at sea, about cultural practices that might interfere with their attempts at trade, and about products that would be suitable for foreign markets. Churchmen read the reports of missionaries to understand the beliefs of Muslims and other non-believers in order to debate with them and to learn their languages. These articles illustrate how travellers' reports in turn shaped the European response to the world beyond Europe, and are set in context in the editor's introduction.

The Evolution of the Medieval World

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

This ambitious book is designed to meet the need for a comprehensive and sophisticated one-volume survey of medieval Europe that respects the complexity and richness of its subject while opening it up to the student and non-specialist reader. Throughout, David Nicholas stresses the evolutionary continuity that characterises this long period, and is to be found even in those times of change and dislocation by which the succeeding phases of Western history are conventionally divided: particularly, here, between the late Roman world and the 'tribal' Europe of the sixth and seventh centuries, and between the late Middle Ages and the sixteenth century. No single area is emphasised in the treatment: while, inevitably, France and England figure largely in the total picture, detailed attention is also given to Germany, Italy and Spain - and there are extended sections on Byzantium and Islam, the powerful and influential neighbours of the medieval West. The treatment is broadly comparative, looking at regional differences in the discussions of intellectual life, political and social institutions, governance, and economic developments. Although David Nicholas considers political ideas, he is more concerned to explore the realities of public administration and the mechanics of government in medieval Europe, at all levels - local, regional, national. While most medieval textbooks emphasise clerical culture at the expense of lay, Professor Nicholas offers a more balanced approach, with sections on lay and vernacular culture for the early Middle Ages as well as the later. Similarly, he sees education not simply as an extension of religion, but also as a carefully-structured curriculum with practical applications in the workplace. Religion itself is treated as a concern of the laity as well as of the clergy, and there are accordingly substantial sections on folk religion. And Professor Nicholas's research interests in the history of women, children and the family in the Middle Ages are also richly reflected throughout his text. In less expert hands, the book's huge chronological and geographical spread could well have become unwieldy; but David Nicholas seizes the unique opportunity of his vast canvas to explore the major themes of the age in depth and in time. His pages never become superficial or simplistic; nor, for all the wealth of information they convey, is their richness of detail ever allowed to overwhelm the clear and vigorous lines of the argument. This is a scholarly book that the student and general reader can enjoy. It is a notable achievement.

Book Description :

'Probably the best "buy" among recent works for one who comes to medieval history for the first time.' History (about the second edition) Consisting of two parts, this book successfully conveys the importance of the distant past in understanding our modern world. The first part; The Dark Ages, examines the impact of the Barbarian invasions on Constantine's Christianized empire, and the gradual emergence, by the end of the ninth century, of a new social, economic and political order. There are important chapters on the on the Church and the Papacy, the coming of Islam, and the rise and fall of the Frankish Empire. The second part; The High Middle Ages, takes the reader from the Saxon Empire through to an examination of the European economy in the mid-thirteenth century. Important topics covered in this period include the spread of monasticism, the reform of the Papacy, the crusades, and feudal monarchy. This has been the best introductory book in medieval history for fifty years, and still is.

Book Description :

Occitania, known today as the "south of France," had its own language and culture in the Middle Ages. Its troubadours created "courtly love" and a new poetic language in the vernacular, which were to influence European literature for centuries. There are many books on the troubadours, but this is the first comprehensive study of the society in which they lived. For readers of literature it offers a wide-ranging insight into the realities that lay behind the poetic mystique. For historians it opens up an important and neglected area of medieval Europe.
