“One of the most exciting books on history to appear in recent years.”—The Economist
“A book of rare value.”—Sidney Painter, American Historical Review
A distinguished historian presents an absorbing study of the main personalities and the influences that molded the history of Western Europe from the late tenth to the early thirteenth centuries—the formative period of modern Western civilization. R. W. Southern describes the chief forms of social, political, and religious organization, analyzing a wealth of concrete, highly significant episodes. He recaptures the personal experiences and the individual consciences of the men who guided "the making of the Middle Ages."
