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

A Companion to the Medieval World is a valuable reference book for
students engaged in medieval studies at honours or postgraduate level
seeking in-depth information on sources for essays and theses. It is useful
for teachers and lecturers of medieval history (like me) striving to keep upto-
date with the state of the discipline. Many of the essays would also be of
interest to intelligent ’general readers’ who wish to extend their knowledge
of the medieval world.
Susan Mary Withycombe

"...a valuable reference book for students engaged in medieval studies at honours or postgraduate level seeking in-depth information on sources for essays and theses. It is useful for teachers and lecturers of medieval history (like me) striving to keep upto-date with the state of the discipline. Many of the essays would also be of interest to intelligent ’general readers’ who wish to extend their knowledge of the medieval world." - St. Mark's Review, August 2016 issue


"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, January 2013 issue
