About the Book

This is the most authoritative account of life in Medieval Europe between the fall of the Roman Empire and the coming of the Renaissance.

Full coverage is given to all aspects of life in a thousand-year period which saw the creation of western civilization: from the empires and kingdoms of Charlemagne, the Byzantines, and the Hundred Years War, to the ideals of the crusades, the building of great cathedrals and the social catastrophe
of the Black Death; the cultural worlds of chivalric knights, popular festivals, and new art forms. The chapters show the movement of the centre of gravity in European life from the Mediterranean to the north; and the authors explore the contrast between Byzantine and Renaissance cultures in the
south and the new, complex political and social structures of north-west Europe, which by 1300 had the most advanced civilization the world had ever seen.

About the Author:
George Holmes is Chichele Professor of Medieval History at the University of Oxford. He has also been a History Delegate to Oxford University Press.
