ManusciptaThis is a major seminal work. It clearly shows in how deep a sense the Middle Ages was by far the most literate period that Western culture had ever know.
— Walter J. Ong
"This is a highly original, superbly researched, and clearly written work. Its main purpose is to reassess the transformations of European thought in the eleventh and twelfth centuries on the basis of suggesting new relationship between 'oral' and 'written' cultures. Stock's book is probably the most provocative approach to understanding the eleventh and twelfth centuries since the early work of R. W. Southern."--Edward Peters, University of Pennsylvania
