The Middle Ages
The Middle Ages | Morris Bishop
4 posts | 6 to read
In this indispensable volume, one of America's ranking scholars combines a life's work of research and teaching with the art of lively narration. Both authoritative and beautifully told, The Middle Ages is the full story of the thousand years between the fall of Rome and the Renaissance - a time that saw the rise of kings and emperors, the flowering of knighthood, the development of Europe, the increasing power of the Catholic Church, and the advent of the middle class. With exceptional grace and wit, Morris Bishop vividly reconstructs this distinctive era of European history in a work that will inform and delight scholars and general readers alike.

#5555giveaway My favorite nonfiction has to be historical. I studied music history, and most of the music history faculty at Ohio State were medievalists. I knew a lot about the music of the Middle Ages, but not enough general history. I decided to correct that after I retired. Susan Wise Bauer was great for the timeline and political history, but this was the best for cultural history and readability.

Megabooks I do not know much about that at all. You've really made me think about something different. That's a really interesting thing to study! 2y
