Overview

The European Middle Ages was a time of contrasts. It was the Age of Chivalry and a period of great cruelty. While art and architecture developed into magnificent styles and Christianity flowered, there were also witch-hunts and brutal wars, terrible tortures and barbaric invasions. Stretching from the fifth to the sixteenth centuries, the Middle Ages bridged the years from the decline of classical Roman civilization to the renewal of knowledge in the European Renaissance. But far from being a “Dark Age,” the medieval period created its very own vibrant, unique civilization in Europe.

The Timeline History of the Middle Ages offers a unique chronological record of every aspect of this fascinating era. Organized around the major subjects, including politics, dynasties, wars, religion, the arts and everyday life, The Timeline also highlights the unforgettable figures of the day, such as Francis of Assisi, Joan of Arc, and Richard the Lionheart.

Illustrated throughout with magnificent medieval paintings, maps and illustrations, this volume is an indispensible companion for all those drawn to this dramatic and defining period in human history.
