Middle Ages

(Part of the History Firsthand Series)

Although thought of as an era of illiteracy, the Middle Ages bore witness to a great deal of writing. With sources ranging from religious tracts to eyewitness testimony of historical events, modern readers are able to gain insight into the social and personal affairs of the times. Greenhaven Press' anthology compiles many of these major firsthand accounts that have been handed down from the so-called Dark Ages.

A thought provoking read

This book is a series of articles by Bruno Leone. The book covers specific topics such as the Barbarians and their forcing of the Roman Empire to fall, Saints and Sinners with a primary focus on Thomas Becket, Emperors and Kings with highlights on Charlemagne, William the Conqueror, King John, and Louis VI and Lous IX. Also covered are the Crusades, and the Jewish influence in Europe. While the book is easy to read as Leone's style lends its self to a quick read, I find some of the research lacking. A few of the resources come from less and full acedemic peer reviewed articles. I think for general reading, and some research projects this book will be very suitable. It is an interesting read, and well worth picking up if you enjoy the middle ages.
