Overview

Arthur Tilley (1851–1942) was a British linguist and historian specialising in the literature of the French Renaissance. He was a Fellow of Kings's College, Cambridge, and was appointed Lecturer in French in 1896. This edited volume, first published in 1922, provides an overview of changes in French society between 987 and 1500. Each chapter focuses on a specific aspect of that society and was written by a specialist in the field. The architecture, literature, industries and commerce, and political and military history of medieval France are discussed in detail; shorter chapters deal with more specialist topics, such as the evolution of the French language and developments in sculpture during this period. This arrangement allows for a depth of discussion and detail on these topics, providing a comprehensive review of medieval French culture and society.
