An age of chivalry, color, and faith from which the modern world still draws inspiration - or centuries of violence, squalor, and superstition best forgotten? Marjorie Rowling refreshingly avoids any such extreme judgements so often passed on the Middle Ages. Instead, she looks closely at some of the people who lived and worked in that fascinating era of European history. These men and women are drawn from all classes and occupations. In each case we learn of their work and their homes, of their hopes and their fears. The many direct quotations skillfully woven into the text and the book's plentiful illustrations reflect the full vigor and variety of everyday life in medieval Europe, which the author so successfully evokes. 228 pages.
