Many readers of Robert Bartlett's volume in the New Oxford History of England will be delighted with his recreation of twelfth-century English society...He writes about an astonishing range of subjects using a remarkable assortment of sources. This is a 'must have' volume for every scholar's bookshelf, and there are few who will read it without learning something new. (Journal of Ecclesiastical History)
The discussions of religious practice and the course of life from cradle to grave (which draw heavily on clerical writing) are fascinating...His stage is thickly thronged with a rich diversity of beings, alive, dead, and even the undead. (Journal of Ecclesiastical History)
This is an extraordinary and uncompromising book. Extraordinary because it offers a rich cascade of brilliant and thought-provoking analytical sketches and case studies, illuminating just about every conceivable aspect of the daily life of twelfth-century England, as well as some aspects which minds less imaginative than Robert Bartlett's might have thought inconceivable. (John Gillingham, Times Literary Supplement)
There can be few who will not read this book with profit... good value...well illustrated...this volume is a good read, from whom all readers, at any levels, will learn much. (Journal of the Society of Archivists)
This is a superb work of scholarship that will inspire future generations to cherish and to further investigate the medieval past. No reader could fail to be impressed by its scope and its flair. (English Historical Review)
One of the most brilliant and idiosyncratic books ever to have been published on the history of medieval England. The freshness of Bartlett's approach is entirely exhilarating. Much as we might presume to know the chief twelfth-century sources, time after time Bartlett will throw in some new authority, or reintroduce us to the familiar, scattering spice for even the most jaded of palates...This book deserves to command a wide popular readership. (English Historical Review)
In bringing to life the anxieties of twelfth-century Englishmen, Bartlett rescues from oblivion sources which are either unknown or far too little known. (John Gillingham, Times Literary Supplement)
This vivid and and comprehensive account of the politics, religion, and culture of England in the century and a half after the Norman Conquest lays bare the patterns of everyday life, and increases our understanding of medieval society at a time when England was more closely tied to Europe than ever before.
This was a period in which the ruling dynasty and military aristocracy were deeply enmeshed with the politics and culture of France. The book describes their conflicts and their preoccupations: the sense of honour, the role of violence, and the glitter of tournament, heraldry, and Arthurian romance. The author explores the mechanics of their government, and analyses the part played by the Church at a time of radical developments in religious life and organization. He investigates the role of ordinary men and women: the fundamental importance of the peasant economy, the growing urban and commercial arenas; and also their outlook on the world, including their views on the past; on sexuality; on animals; on death, the undead and the occult. The result is a fascinating and complex account of a period which begins with conquest and ends in assimilation.
