About the Authors
  • This volume covers the last century (interpreted broadly) of the traditional western Middle Ages. Often seen as a time of doubt, decline and division, the period is shown here as a period of considerable innovation and development, much of which resulted from a conscious attempt by contemporaries to meet the growing demands of society and to find practical solutions to the social, religious and political problems which beset it. The volume consists of four sections. Part I focuses on both the ideas and other considerations which guided men as they sought good government, and on the practical development of representation. Part II deals with aspects of social and economic development at a time of change and expansion. Part III discusses the importance of the life of the spirit: religion, education and the arts. Moving from the general to the particular, Part IV concerns itself with the history of the countries of Europe, emphasis being placed on the growth of the nation states of the 'early modern' world.

    • The New Cambridge Medieval History is the most important scholarly series on the medieval world to be published in recent decades
    • This volume covers the transition period from medieval times to the beginning of the 'early modern' period
    • Contains chapters by dozens of world authorities on every aspect of fifteenth-century society

    Reviews & endorsements

    'In a series of elegantly written and richly textured sketches, this large book provides some 32 chapters on the material, cultural and political condition of late medieval Europe. The task has been immense and the product is testimony to the editorial commitment that has sustained it in moments when others would surely have faltered and fallen.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

    'This is a triumphant final volume of the series, which will enrich historical literature for a long time to come.' Jeremy Catto, The English Historical Review
