Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Comprehensive but accessible, the Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages offers a wealth of information not easily available from any other single source, providing 3,000 detailed and concise articles on all aspects of the Middle Age. Six years in the making, this massive work is a co-publication of four international publishers (James Clarke in the UK; Less Editions du Cerf in France; Citta Nuova in Italy; and Fitzroy Dearborn in the United States); it is the collaborative effort of more than 600 scholars coordinated by a team of 30 experts, under the editorial supervision of Andre Vauchez.Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages is based on the scholarship of the last thirty years, and provides both a magisterial overview of the period from the 5th to the 15th centuries as well as a fresh approach to the subject. Cultural, religious, intellectual, social and political history are all covered, and although the main concentration is on Europe and Christendom, the rise of Islam and the Arabs, and of other cultural with which Europeans came into contact, is also extensively treated. Art and architecture (including the building of the great cathedrals), the growth of universities, developments in law, and scientific discoveries are all treated in the same depth as political history. Archaeological, geographical, historical, linguistic, philosophical and theological topics receive full treatment. Biographies of monarchs, bishops and major intellectual figures are included, as are descriptions of varying lengths of major ideas and beliefs.Lively in style and accessible, and enhanced by 640 color and black-and-white illustrations and maps, Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages is the first work thatcomprehensively clarifies how much we still owe to that manifold culture and will be an essential resource for both public and academic libraries.
