Thomas Wright (1810-77) was a highly prolific scholar of Old and Middle English and archaeology, although some of his work, particularly that on prehistory, was contentious. The present work, which he edited and published in 1863, comprises two texts by Alexander Neckam (1157-1217). The son of Richard I's foster mother, Neckam was a respected teacher and prolific scholar who became abbot of Cirencester. The larger of these texts, De naturis rerum, consists of a scientific manual followed by a theological treatise, a commentary on Ecclesiastes. Neckam later produced an abbreviated verse form of this, the second text found here. The first part of each text is a compendium of all the scientific knowledge of western Europe and England in the twelfth century, which Neckam aimed to treat morally as well as factually. In producing this edition, Wright has included the Latin marginal annotations, possibly by Neckam himself, found in his manuscript exemplars
Daily living in the twelfth century, based on the observations of Alexander Neckam in London and Paris by Urban T Holmes( Book )

6 editions published between 1953 and 1982 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book for all who are curious to know how it was to live in another time. It presents a new approach to the study of medieval life: first, it concentrates on a 50-year period, 1150-1200, not making the usual broad generalizations about the Middle Ages as though they were a single, homogeneous era; second, it presents medieval life through the experience of a medieval man. The reader goes on a journey with Alexander Neckham, rides the amounts he rode, lodges at hospices such as might have received him, walks the streets of London and Paris as Alexander found them, and visits the schools and baronial estates that he might have visited. Mr. Holmes draws steadily upon his wide, varied, and accurate knowledge of medieval literature -- Latin, French, and English -- to say nothing of iconography, painting, and architecture. The reader has a sense of being guided by two men familiar with the ground, one a medieval man, the other a modern expert. - Back cover
