About the Authors
  • Volume 5 brings together studies of the political, religious, social and economic history of the whole of Europe and of the Mediterranean world between about 1198 and 1300. Comprehensive coverage of the developments in western Europe is balanced by attention to the east of Europe, including the Byzantine world, and the Islamic lands in Spain, north Africa and the Levant. Thematic articles look at the fine arts, the vernacular, communications and other aspects of a period in which the frontiers of Latin Christendom were expanding vigorously outward. Attention also is paid to the frontier societies that emerged in Spain, the Baltic and the Mediterranean islands.

    • A comprehensive work of reference and interpretation on European history, east and west, in the thirteenth century
    • Contains chapters by dozens of leading historians of high international reputation
    • Text fully backed up with extensive annotation, chapter bibliographies, and maps

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Abulafia is to be congratulated on producing a splendidly coherent volume...the NCMH makes a genuine contribution to a 'balanced and authoritative' coverage of topics, bringing the thirteenth into the twenty-first century." The Medieval Review

    "Contributors represent an international group of scholars." K. F. Drew, Choice

    "This is an impressive collection...its completeness, authoritative surveys, and coverage make it indispensable especially for medievalists trying to orient themselves with unfamiliar fields or ones they have not thought about in recent years." Speculum
