It is organized in five main chapters, each focusing on a key component of medieval society: castles, knights, and lords; town and country; houses of God; monks and monasteries; and warfare. The approach is at once classic and contemporary, presenting the history in authoritative yet lively and entertaining text with beautiful full-color artwork and photography. Each chapter is enhanced by a stunning six-page gatefold that reveals a reconstruction of a historical place or event in all its medieval splendor. With an introductory chapter that provides an overview of the Middle Ages, from the fall of the Roman Empire to the beginnings of European exploration of the New World, Revelation: The Medieval World is an absorbing journey back in time, providing an eyewitness perspective to this fascinating period in history."@en ;
