From the end of the Roman Empire and the development of the Early Church in the fifth century, to Black Death and The Hundred Years War in the fourteenth century, Slocum's authentic chronological narrative integrates a lucid and thorough discussion of politics, warfare, dynastic events, and the rise of the Church. Providing a narrative of the events and people of the time, Slocum pays special attention to socio-cultural history and medieval art and architecture. By interweaving primary sources into the narrative, A HISTORY OF MEDIEVAL CIVILIZATION brings medieval history to life through the voices of contemporary men and women of the time.
