Encyclopedia of Medieval World
This comprehensive yet accessible A-to-Z encyclopedia covers the medieval world from Scandinavia to the Maghreb and Iceland to Moscow, including Byzantium, Seljuk, the early Ottoman Anatolla, the Levant, Syria, and Palestine.
In approximately 2000 entries the reader will find exhaustive coverage on everything from significant personalities, archaeology, arts and architecture, institutions, literature, philosophy, religion, to economy, law, science, technology, politics, and warfare.
Reflecting the charges in scholarly interest that have occurred over the last two decades, this encyclopedia is interdisciplinary and comparative with greater attention to cultural and geographic subject matter.
Topics that have been treated only marginally in previous publications on the Middle Ages - such as women, ecology, ethnicity, nationalism, memory, and labor - are treated more comprehensively here, making this an authoritative resource that all ages of readers with an interest in the Middle Ages will want to consult.
