Summary
  • Between 1095 and 1229, Western Europe confronted a series of alternative cultural possibilities that would fundamentally transform its social structures, its intellectual life, and its very identity. It was a period of difficult decisions and anxiety rather than a triumphant 'renaissance'
  • In this fresh reassessment of the twelfth century, John D. Cotts:
  • Shows how new social, economic, and religious options challenged Europeans to re-imagine their place in the world
  • Provides an overview of political life and detailed examples of the original thought and religious enthusiasm of the time
  • Presents the Crusades as the century's defining movement
  • Ideal for students and scholars alike, this is an essential overview of a pivotal era in medieval history that arguably paved the way for a united Europe
