In this book seven experts in the field examine how Europe was transformed in the Central Middle Ages. Thematic chapters analyse the political, social, economic, religious and intellectual history of Latin Christendom, and trace its expansion to the north, south and east. As well as many familiar topics the authors discuss less well known aspects of the period such as the popular experience of religion or the new kingdoms of east-central Europe. The book includes a chronology of
developments, a glossary, maps, illustrations and guidance for further reading. - ;It provides an ideal preface for those who have read no political narrative of the period, and a bracing tonic and corrective for those of us who have read far too much. - R.
