Review:

Beautifully written, thorough, and accessible, Reading the Middle Ages, Second Edition enables readers to consider medieval culture in its broadest sense. Overall, this text inspires a thoughtful examination and re-examination of the historical narrative of nearly 1200 years; it is geographically inclusive and historically comprehensive. (Rosemary Drage Hale, Director of the Centre for Medieval & Renaissance Studies, Brock University)

This is a wonderfully broad selection of familiar and less familiar medieval sources. Beautifully and expertly presented, this collection of texts and images offers fresh and up-to-date insights into very different yet interconnected medieval worlds. (Mayke de Jong, Utrecht University)

Barbara Rosenwein's Reading the Middle Ages, Second Edition treats us to a more multicultural and many-faceted period than was commonly studied years ago. Key literary and documentary texts from Western Europe retain their importance in this volume while a wealth of material from Central and Eastern Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia illuminates connections with the Western medieval world. The introductions to individual texts are engagingly written and often include questions that will prove helpful in guiding students and scholars alike in their reading. (Joseph Grossi, University of Victoria)
