Details: Review

“Just as my dog-eared copy of the second edition of Reading the Middle Ages has begun to look shabby from overuse, Barbara H. Rosenwein brings us a new version of her indispensable sourcebook. Having challenged a whole generation of college students and their instructors to study the medieval period in a comparative, global context, this classic collection of primary sources from Western and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia remains unsurpassed in its breadth. Grouped thematically and chronologically, the readings are carefully selected and edited to hold students’ interest and inspire lively discussions. With new documents from the Islamic world and Byzantium, as well as a set of color illustrations on medieval weapons and warfare, the third edition is certain to find avid readers in an even wider array of college classrooms than before.” — Maya Soifer Irish, Rice University

“Reading the Middle Ages is not only an indispensable source for the teaching of the Middle Ages, but it is also indispensable for any member of the public who is a true pursuer of knowledge and does not opine on the basis of false and misinformed prejudices. In contrast to the recent discourse that glorifies modernity and human progress, the medieval people come alive in these sources to reveal their ingenious, charitable and effective methods of dealing with timeless existential problems of humanity.” — Neslihan Senocak, Columbia University

Product Description

The third edition of Reading the Middle Ages retains the strengths of previous editions—thematic and geographical diversity, clear and informative introductions, and close integration with A Short History of the Middle Ages—and adds significant new materials, especially on the Byzantine and Islamic worlds and the Mediterranean region. The stunning “Reading through Looking” color insert, which showcases medieval artifacts and introduces how historians study medieval material culture, has been expanded to include essays on weapons and warfare by medievalist Riccardo Cristiani. New maps, timelines, and genealogies aid readers in following knotty but revealing sources. On the History Matters website (, students have access to hundreds of Questions for Reflection.
