Promotional Information

An authoritative synthesis of the major themes in European fourteenth-century history.


'What is the volume's strength? It is in the meticulous work of mediation that it performs, between a vast literature in European languages to which most readers, and most historians, no longer have access ... for those of us who teach European history ... the service is enormous.' Miri Rubin, Times Higher Education Supplement 'Michael Jones and his colleagues deserve congratulation on a triumphant conclusion to their long labours in making fourteenth-century Europe seem even more absorbing than it always and already was.' The Journal of Ecclesiastical History '... the Press deserves congratulations for allowing such a profusion of references. In all, this is a most welcome book: hugely informative and thought-provoking, it captures many aspects of a remarkable century.' Medium Aevum
