Chaucer and his England by G. G Coulton( Book )

No book of this size can pretend to treat exhaustively of all that concerns Chaucer and his England; but the author's main aim has been to supply an informal historical commentary on the poet's works. - Preface to the first edition

English scene from conquest to reformation
Medieval village, manor, and monastery by G. G Coulton( Book )

76 editions published between 1925 and 2012 in English and held by 2,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A glorious grab-bag of information, mostly dismal, about medieval peasant life, as well as a polemical pamphlet important for the understanding of late Victorian and Edwardian England. The author uses his unsurpassed knowledge of medieval sources to discover brickbats which he hurls at Papists, Anglican high-churchmen, aristocratic conservatives, and likewise at the socialists, all of whom, he believes, by romanticizing the pre-Protestant, pre-democratic and pre-capitalist era, are destroying the solid virtues which in his opinion has made Britain great

Inquisition and liberty by G. G Coulton( Book )

25 editions published between 1938 and 1969 in English and held by 921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new book by the stern censor of the human frailties of mediaeval Christianity is ostensibly less a new history of the papal Inquisition than an attempt to find in the Middle Ages a justification for a sweeping condemnation of that authoritarianism which threatens the ideal of individual liberty today. And yet, if it is not a new history of the Inquisition, neither is it a very successful final judgment of authoritarian intolerance, for the exact nature of present dangers to liberty is left undefined, except for a passing reference or so to Abyssinia and Spain and to the problem of individual responsibility and freedom in contemporary England; and the connection between mediaeval universalism in the Church and modern totalitarianism in the State is not at all clear. Nevertheless, it is a significant book, and it is necessary to consider it seriously from the point of view of the premise which is the real foundation of Coulton's attitude towards the human failure of mediaeval Christianity: Can the historian not condemn the mediaeval Inquisition as a violation of the eternal law of humanitarian and social justice, as a violation of the modern ideal of individual liberty, and as a violation even of the primitive (therefore eternal) Christian ideal of toleration. -- From http://www.jstor.org (August 28, 2013)
