The Middle Ages
The Illustrated History of the Medieval WorldBook - 2014
The popular portrayal of the medieval era as one of endless famine, war, and ignorance is itself ignorant--overlooking brilliant advances in science, art, and literature. This beautifully illustrated collection illuminates the dark ages, telling the story of the period and such key figures as Joan of Arc, Marco Polo, and Saladin. Some 15 facsimile documents include Pope Innocent IV's authorization of the use of torture, issued by in 1250; pages from the Gutenberg Bible, medieval maps, and illuminated manuscripts.
