Abstract:

"In this new book, Malcolm Vale sets out to recapture the splendour of the court culture of western Europe in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Exploring the century or so between the death of St. Louis and the rise of Burgundian power in the Low Countries, he illuminates a period in the history of princes and court life previously overshadowed by the courts of the dukes of Burgundy. Taking in subjects as diverse as art patronage and gambling, hunting and devotional religion, Malcolm Vale rediscovers a richness and abundance of artistic, literary, and musical life.

He shows how, despite the pressures of political fragmentation, unrest, and a nascent awareness of national identity, a common culture began to emerge in English, French, Flemish, and Dutch court societies at this time. The result is both a ground-breaking re-evaluation of the nature and role of the court in European history and a celebration of a forgotten age."--BOOK JACKET.
