Time, Work and Culture in the Middle Ages by Jacques Le Goff

Book Description

Jacques Le Goff is a prominent figure in the tradition of French medieval scholarship, profoundly influenced by the "Annales" school, notably, Bloch, Febvre, and Braudel, and by the ethnographers and anthropologists Mauss, Dumezil, and Levi-Strauss. In building his argument for "another Middle Ages" ("un autre moyen age"), Le Goff documents the emergence of the collective "mentalite" from many sources with scholarship both imaginative and exact.

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.

Birth of Europe by Jacques Le Goff Birth of Europe, Paperback (December 2006)

*"[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.
