Birth of Europe by Jacques Le Goff

Book Description

In this ground-breaking new study,Jacques Le Goff, arguably the leading medievalist of his generation, presents his view of the primacy of the Middle Ages in the development of European history. *"[A] superb and necessary book. This provocative assessment from a lifetime of scholarship might help us to place ourselves, not just territorially, but in that other precious element of history: time." The Guardian *"A book that never fails to be informative, readable and provocative. Le Goff...has been the bravest and best of champions for medieval history. This book...is in every sense an inspiration." BBC History Magazine * Praised by prominent figures in Europe and history including: Rt Hon Christopher Patten, CH, Former Member of the European Commission, and Neil Kinnock, Vice-President, European Commission.

In Search of Sacred Time by Jacques Le Goff 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 by Jacques Le Goff Money and the Middle Ages, Hardback (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.

My Quest for the Middle Ages by Jacques Le Goff My Quest for the Middle Ages, Hardback (July 2005)
