Originally published in the 1960s, this series is a history of the worlds cultures. This volume serves as an introduction to the Middle Ages in Western Europe.Author Anne Fremantle has written a succinct and balanced overview of this distinctive era in world history.

The first two chapters discuss feudalism and monasticism. Chapter Three describes the causes, course, and effects of the Crusades. Chapter Four examines the development of towns and the rise of the urban class. The evolution of medieval universities, literature, art, music, and architecture is the focus of Chapters Five and Six. The rise of the nation-states of England and France is the emphasis of Chapter Seven. The final chapter briefly describes the Black Death, the Hundred Years War, the Great Schism, and the revolts of the peasants in France and England.

A chronological table of events is included in the appendix and numerous picture essays supplement the text. The influence of the Church is a common thread running throughout the narrative- the presence of the Middle Ages in the modern world is a prevalent theme as well.This book is one of two books in this series about Western Europe during the Middle Ages (the other book is Barbarian Europe). Barbarian Europe focuses more on the Early Middle Ages- Age of Faith emphasizes the last half of this time period.

In short, Age of Faith is an informative and concise introduction to the Middle Ages. Highly recommended.
