Now revised and expanded, this edition of the splendidly detailed and lively history of the Middle Ages contains more than 30 percent new material. This revised and expanded version retains the character of the original version, namely a focus on cultural, intellectual, and religious history, considered within social and political contexts. The popular impressions of the Middle Ages as the Age of Faith and one whose consciousness and sensibility were dominated by the Western church is, like most popular historical images, not wrong. What is needed, however, is to articulate that impression in terms of the actual development of medieval religious culture in its interaction with social and material forces, so that the perception of the Middle Ages as a faith-centered culture will be grounded in the reality that historical research can establish. This is what this book tries to do, presenting this information in a readable narrative that highlights prominent personalities.
