Reviews - What do customers think about Medieval Civilization?

1000 years of Europe  Aug 3, 2007
Russell offers an understanding of Europe from the fall of the Roman Empire to the 15th century. This thousand year span is hence necessarily brief for one book, no matter how lengthy that book. But Russell manages to cover the salient ideas and events that we now understand as characterising medieval civilisation.

He describes the agricultural economy. For all the economies were agricultural, to first approximation. From this, we see how feudalism was built. On the backs of the long suffering peasants and serfs. Knights and lords ruled over these unfortunates.

The role of the Church is covered prominently, as befitting its role as a major secular power. Religious issues and troubles are explained. Some of which presaged the Reformation.
