THE GATEWAY TO THE MIDDLE AGES

The intense concentration on the sixth century limits the market for this to students of the Middle Ages primarily. But it is surprisingly good reading and packed with detailed incident and anecdote, human interest material, and revealing glimpses of the life in city and town and country, in court and monastery and battle-field. Against a carefully drawn background of the historical period, she introduces the contemporary writers, and from letters and records and books written by scholars and pedants and religious men and politicians and leaders she reconstructs the times. Rome, Italy, Germany, Austria, the Near East, France, England.
