The Middle AgesBook - 2002
Although thought of as an era of illiteracy, the Middle Ages bore witness to a great deal of writing. With sources ranging from religious tracts to eyewitness testimony of historical events, modern readers are able to gain insight into the social and personal affairs of the times. Greenhaven Press' anthology compiles many of these major firsthand accounts that have been handed down from the so-called Dark Ages.
