Monks and Monasteries in the Middle Ages

Monks and Monasteries in the Middle Ages
The Middle Ages, from AD 500-1500, were once described as dark and stagnantó"a thousand years without a bath." Now, the Middle Ages are celebrated as a time of immense social change, of outstanding achievements in art and science, and of deep spirituality. The World Almanac Library of the Middle Ages uses primary sources and full-color reproductions of medieval manuscripts and artwork to bring this rich tapestry to life. Students will be introduced to unforgettable characters, from valiant knights to reclusive monks, and from kings and popes struggling for supremacy to entire villages fighting to survive the plague. Time lines and focus boxes enhance the text and help give students a deeper understanding and appreciation of this fascinating period of world history.
