Medieval civilization, 400-1500 by Jacques Le Goff( Book )

127 editions published between 1964 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 2,367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1000-year history of the civilization of western Europe has been recognized in France as a scholarly contribution of the highest order and as a popular classic. Jacques Le Goff has written a book which will be read by generations of students and historians. Part one is a narrative account of the entire period, from the barbarian settlement of Roman Europe in the fifth, sixth and seventh centuries to the war-torn crises of Christian Europe in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Part two is analytical, concerned with the origins of early medieval ideas of culture and religion, the constraints of time and space in a pre-industrial world and the reconstruction of the lives and sensibilities of the people during this long period. Le Goff combines the narrative and descriptive power characteristic of Anglo-Saxon scholarship with the sensitivity and insight of the French historical tradition.--From publisher description

Medieval callings by Franco Cardini( Book )

69 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These essays by eleven internationally renowned historians present nuanced profiles of the major social and professional groups -- the callings-of the Middle Ages. The contributors focus on attitudes of medieval men and women toward their own society. Through a variety of techniques, from a reading of the Song of Roland to a reading of administrative records, they identify characteristic viewpoints of members of the fighting class, the clergy, and the peasantry. Along with vivid descriptions of what life was like for warrior knights, monks, high churchmen, criminals, lepers, shepherds, and prostitutes, this innovative approach offers a valuable new perspective on the complex social dynamics of feudal Europe."--Publisher's description

37 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, French historian Jacques Le Goff places the genesis of Europe firmly in the Middle Ages. He contends that it was in the Middle Ages that many of the institutions and beliefs we consider to be "European" were defined and developed for the first time: ideas about a common Christian society, public spaces, courtship, and marriage." "The Birth of Europe presents the historical facts and events that shaped the period, but also the formation of attitudes and concepts of a European "dream.""--Jacket

History and memory by Jacques Le Goff( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this brilliant meditation on the varying conceptions of history, Jacques Le Goff, one of the leading members of the French "Annales" school, examines the oppositions between past and present, ancient and modern as well as the various continuities in the evolutions of the historical spirit." "Clearly written, broad-ranging, and richly allusive, History and Memory is a provocative book that will inspire a better understanding of historical work and provide an overview of the "new history" that has revolutionized historical studies over the post half century. Le Goff has written a new preface for the English language edition, which examines recent trends in historiography."--Jacket
Saint Francis of Assisi by Jacques Le Goff( Book )

48 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Known for speaking with the birds, for professing poverty, receiving the stigmata and for initiating the Franciscan order, Francis of Assisi is one of the most radical and inspiring figures in church history." "In this celebrated biography, now available in English for the first time, the medieval scholar Jacques Le Goff paints a detailed picture of the life of Francis of Assisi. Locating Francis in the feudal world of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries and exploring the social and political changes taking place at the time, Le Goff assesses the dramatic influence of the saint on the medieval Church and celebrates his role in the spiritual revival of the Catholic Church."--BOOK JACKET

Saint Louis by Jacques Le Goff( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Armed with the considerable resources of the nouvel historien, Jacques Le Goff mines existing materials about Saint Louis to forge a new historical biography of the king. Part of his ambitious project is to reconstruct the mental universe of the thirteenth century: Le Goff describes the scholastic and intellectual background of Louis' reign and, most importantly, he discusses methodology and the interpretation of written sources - their composition, provenance, and reliability." "Questioning whether Saint Louis was merely the invention of his eulogists, Le Goff penetrates beyond the literary and hagiographical evidence to the human behind the legend. He brilliantly analyzes Louis' progress toward his unique self-creation and its subsequent mythologizing. In the third part, Le Goff highlights the contradictions within Louis and his historical image that previous chroniclers have elided or overlooked. In the end, he leaves us with the saint, rather than the king, with all the paradoxes embedded in that role."--Jacket
