A Distant Mirror

DistantMirrorSuggested by Timothy Lane • The 14th century reflects two images: a glittering age of crusades/cathedrals, and a world plunged into chaos and agony. Tuchman re-creates the lives of cardinals, university scholars, grocers, clerks, saints, mystics, lawyers, mercenaries, and, dominating all, the knight—in all his valor and “furious follies.”
