The first single-volume reference work on the history and culture of medieval France, this information-filled Encyclopedia of over 2,400 entries covers the political, intellectual, literary, and musical history of the country from the early fifth century to the late 15th. The shorter entries offer succinct summaries of the lives of individuals, events, works, cities, monuments, and other important subjects, followed by essential bibliographies. Longer essay-length articles provide interpretive comments about significant institutions and important periods or events. The Encyclopedia is thoroughly cross-referenced and includes a generous selection of illustrations, maps, charts, and genealogies

This volume on the history and culture of medieval France will be indispensable for university libraries... Spelling and proofreading are excellent. -- Fifteenth-Century Studies
An emphasis on politics, religion, literature, art and architecture is expected, but technical subjects-agriculture, warfare, medicine, textiles, and mining-are also well represented. Women receive good coverage in individual biographies and in articles on such subjects as family and gender, women in trade, and widowhood... This work is successful in providing a one-volume, up-to-date synthesis of an immensely rich and important era... Highly recommended for larger public and four year college and university libraries and for some special collections. -- Library Journal
Intended primarily for students and general readers, it will prove useful for scholars seeking general orientation, bibliography, and interpretations in areas beyond their field of expertise... Numerous maps and pictures illustrate the text, and page layout is pleasing... Highly recommended for all libraries. -- Choice
Students and the general public are likely to benefit from it... Anyone interested in medieval France would do well to consult this superb source. -- Reference Quarterly
The editors have amply fulfilled their aim to provide a balanced, informative, and up-to-date reference work that, although directed primarily toward students and the general public, will also provide a useful starting point for scholars in various disciplines. -- Contemporary Review
Superb encyclopedia. Both scholars and the public should appreciate its breadth and depth of coverage. Highly recommended. -- Reference Book Review
This is a remarkably useful and attractive volume... The range of topics covered is impressive. -- Arthuriana
