Guibert of Nogent by Jay Rubenstein

Book Description

This is a well written and valuable study of the life of a familiar but still somehow shadowy figure and an important contribution to medieval intellectual history, with insights into the meaning of the twelfth-century renaissance, the monastic mindset, the invention of psychological thought, the birth of the university, and the historiography of the Crusades.

Monodies and on the Relics of Saints by Jay Rubenstein Monodies and on the Relics of Saints, Paperback (February 2012)

Offers insights into medieval society. This title recounts Guibert of Nogent's early years, monastic life, and the bloody uprising at Laon in 1112, lets us witness a world populated by royals, heretics, nuns, witches, and devils, and helps us to understand just how fervently he was preoccupied with sin, sexuality, the afterlife, and the dark arts.

Armies of Heaven by Jay Rubenstein Armies of Heaven, Hardback (November 2011)

Medieval historian Rubenstein tells the story of the cataclysmic First Crusades through the eyes of those who witnessed it, emphasizing the fundamental role that apocalyptic thought played in motivating the Crusaders. A thrilling work of military and religious history, "Armies of Heaven" will revolutionize understanding of the Crusades.
