Product Description:

Weaving together primary sources containing eyewitness accounts, original writings, detailed maps and numerous colorful illustrations; this is not your typical Middle Ages History text. In fact, you may quickly agree that this book breathes new life into world history! Beginning with an introduction to the "cast of characters" students are quickly transported back in time as the storyline unravels revealing this pivotal time period that is crucial to understanding our own times. The history of the Middle Ages is one of believers and barbarians, popes and peasants, competing empires and unforgettable leaders. It also the story of the fall of the Roman Empire, invasion of the Huns, the rise of feudalism, and the reign of plunder brought by the Vikings. But it is also a story of faith: Augustine and Aquinas, Francis of Assisi, Joan of Arc, and the Crusaders; the spread and reform of religious institutions; expansions of trade and city life, the rise of regional empires and local feudal regimes and the revolutionary advances in science and technology. Engaging writing, abundant illustrations and a detailed timeline all flow together to create a telling of history that will delight teens and adults alike. Recommended for the Beautiful Feet Medieval History Literature guide, this book would be a valuable asset to any study of the Middle Ages. Hc, 189 pgs. ~ Deanne
