Publisher's Description

Drawing on the expertise of 26 distinguished scholars, this important volume covers the major issues in the study of medieval Europe, highlighting the significant impact the time period had on cultural forms and institutions central to European identity.
  • Examines changing approaches to the study of medieval Europe, its periodization, and central themes
  • Includes coverage of important questions such as identity and the self, sexuality and gender, emotionality and ethnicity, as well as more traditional topics such as economic and demographic expansion; kingship; and the rise of the West
  • Explores Europe’s understanding of the wider world to place the study of the medieval society in a global context

Editorial Reviews

"Nonetheless, this Companion is an excellent manual for those who have never (or only partially) studied medieval history, as it provides clear outlines of extremely complex issues, a thought-provoking insight into historiographical and methodological trends, as well as an extremely rich bibliography to assist further investigation."  (English Historical Review, 1 January 2013) 

"This is a great legacy--not one of reaction or anachronism--and we should be proud to sit upon the shoulders of such giants and to be able to survey so much of a landscape that they helped map out." (The Medieval Review, September 2010)
