It was a period of difficult decisions and anxiety rather than a triumphant 'renaissance'. In this fresh reassessment of the twelfth century, John D. Cotts shows how new social, economic and religious options challenged Europeans to re-imagine their place in the world. He also provides an overview of political life and detailed examples of the original thought and religious enthusiasm of the time, and the Crusades are presented as the century's defining movement. Ideal for students and scholars alike, this is an essential overview of a pivotal era in medieval history that arguably paved the way for a united Europe. -- Publisher description."@en ;
