This is a visual sourcebook and survey of the medieval world: its people, its horizons, its defining characteristics, its whole culture. Framed by chapters which outline the way the Middle Ages began and ended, and the book consists of six other sections covering religion and the Church, nations and laws, daily life, art and architecture, scholarship and philosophy, and the World beyond Christendom. The glories of medieval painting, glass, manuscripts and architecture are examined, as well as the more intimate and darker side of life: home, shops, the family, work, war, disease and death. The book has a cross-referencing system and includes a 30-page illustrated biographical dictionary including family trees.

About the Author:

Robert Bartlett is Wardlaw Professor of Medieval History at the University of St Andrews. His publications include The Making of Europe and Trial by Fire and Water: The Medieval Judicial Ordeal.

From Library Journal:

More than just a range of years, the Middle Ages are distinguished by the society, lifestyle, perceptions, and beliefs of that time. The author of several books on medieval society and history, Bartlett (medieval history, Univ. of St. Andrews, Scotland) introduces the Middle Ages through eight major themes, which are then illustrated by selections of medieval art. The arrangement is intriguing and thematic, covering everything from religion, knighthood, and courtly love to alchemy, daily labor, and ceremony. Within each of the broader chapters are subtopics illustrated with medieval art depicting the topic as interpreted by the people of the time. These sections are cross-referenced to other related topics by color-coded notations on the bottom of the pages. Many features make this book particularly useful to students a 35-page biographical dictionary, time lines, maps, a glossary, a bibliography, and a list of 22 web sites devoted to medieval studies. For better encyclopedic coverage of the period, public and school libraries should have The Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages (Viking, 1999), but Medieval Panorama makes a fine companion and is recommended for all library collections.
