Description - The Medieval World by Peter Linehan
This groundbreaking collection brings the Middle Ages to life and conveys the distinctiveness of this diverse, constantly changing period. Thirty-eight scholars bring together one medieval world from many disparate worlds, from Connacht to Constantinople and from Tynemouth to Timbuktu. This extraordinary set of reconstructions presents the reader with a vivid re-drawing of the medieval past, offering fresh appraisals of the evidence and modern historical writing. Chapters are thematically linked in four sections: * identities * beliefs, social values and symbolic order * power and power-structures * elites, organizations and groups. Packed full of original scholarship, The Medieval World is essential reading for anyone studying medieval history.
