In Search of Sacred Time, Hardback (March 2014)
It is impossible to understand the late Middle Ages without grasping the importance of The Golden Legend, the most popular medieval collection of saints' lives. Assembled for clerical use in the thirteenth century by Genoese archbishop Jacobus de Voragine, the book became the medieval equivalent of a best seller. This title deals with this book.
Money and the Middle Ages, Paperback (September 2012)
* This is the first accessible discussion of the role of money in the life and economy of the Middle Ages. * The author pays particular attention to the way in which the Church viewed money, and how it taught Christians what attitudes they should adopt towards it and towards the uses to which it could be put.
