Product Description:

The literature of a time period is always one of our best sources of information. This is especially true about a long ago time period like the medieval centuries. These are the stories that have withstood the test of time and translation and appeal. This anthology edited by Rebecca Berg Manor (daughter of Beautiful Feet author, Rea Berg) provides us with an excellent (and manageable) cross-section of literature that traces medieval culture from the beginnings of Christendom to the Age of Exploration. Selections, organized by type of literature, include excerpts from Augustine's Confessions (Early Christian), Deeds of Charlemagne (Romanesque) Battle of Brunanburh (Old English), Song of Roland (Arthurian), Song of the Creatures (Late Latin), Divine Comedy (Dante). Used as a Senior High resource for Beautiful Feet's Medieval History: A Literature Approach, this is a good reference/resource book for any high school world history course. ~ Janice

Publisher Description:

Beautiful Feet Books and Rebecca Manor's Anthology of Medieval Literature traces the development of thought and culture in Europe from the fourth century up through the 1300s. Beginning with excerpts of Augustine's Confessions and culminating with selections from Dante's Divine Comedy, students will trade medieval culture from the beginnings of Christendom to the Age of Exploration. Selections from major works such as The Song of Roland, Marco Polo's Book of Wonders, and The Deeds of Charlemagne are included along with poems, creeds, hymns, and selections from medieval thinkers like Peter Abelard and Thomas Aquinas. For use with the Beautiful Feet Books' Literature Approach to Medieval History study guide, this anthology will provide high school level students with an introductory survey of some of the greatest literature works of western civilization.

From 500 A.D. to 1530 A.D., this literature approach to history takes students through the medieval period via some of the best classic and historic literature available. Students read works by classic authors such as Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Sir Walter Scott. They learn about heroic figures of the time like Wycliffe, Tyndale, Joan of Arc, Luther, Saladin and more. This one-year course has been revised and the publishers have broken the study into two guides; one for intermediate/junior high grades, and one for high school. The guides are now full-color. The Intermediate/Junior High guide features 35 weekly lessons with reading assignments, mapping activities, research and discussion topics, hands-on and craft suggestions, vocabulary lists and more.
