Daily living in the twelfth century, based on the observations of Alexander Neckam in London and Paris by Urban T Holmes( Book )

56 editions published between 1952 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book for all who are curious to know how it was to live in another time. It presents a new approach to the study of medieval life: first, it concentrates on a 50-year period, 1150-1200, not making the usual broad generalizations about the Middle Ages as though they were a single, homogeneous era; second, it presents medieval life through the experience of a medieval man. The reader goes on a journey with Alexander Neckham, rides the amounts he rode, lodges at hospices such as might have received him, walks the streets of London and Paris as Alexander found them, and visits the schools and baronial estates that he might have visited. Mr. Holmes draws steadily upon his wide, varied, and accurate knowledge of medieval literature -- Latin, French, and English -- to say nothing of iconography, painting, and architecture. The reader has a sense of being guided by two men familiar with the ground, one a medieval man, the other a modern expert. - Back cover

Medieval man, his understanding of himself, his society, and the world : illustrated from his own literature by Urban T Holmes( Book )

10 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition of Urban T. Holmes, Jr.'s exploration of medieval man includes an introduction and has been edited by Holmes's son, Urban T. Holmes, III. This book is not an excessively theoretical text adhering tightly to the development of its argument. Instead, it allows the reader to meet not only medieval man in his own understanding of himself, but to meet the author as well. From the overview of Augustinian philosophy and the divine right of kings, to the human ecology and the difference between man and his relationship to self and God as seen through the eyes of the clergy versus the perception of him by his fellow, Holmes talks the reader through the three divisions of the middle ages, and leaves him with a history that he can touch, feel, and inhabit
