5 editions published between 1925 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using the architecture, sculpture, and stained glass of the two locales as a starting point, Adams breathes life into what others might see merely as monuments of a past civilization. With daring and inventive conceits, Adams looks at the ordinary people, places, and events in the context of the social conventions and systems of thought and belief of the thirteenth century, turning the study of history into a kind of theater. As Raymond Carney discusses in his introduction, Adam's freedom from the European traditions of study lends exuberance-and puckish wit-to his writings
