📒The Worlds Of Medieval Europe ✍ Clifford R. Backman
✏The Worlds of Medieval Europe Book Summary : This text presents a portrayal of a western world that was sharply divided between its northern and southern aspects. By integrating the histories of the Islamic and Byzantine worlds into the main narrative, the author offers a look at the continuum of interaction, social, cultural, intellectual, and commercial, that existed among all three societies. Filled with relevant primary documents, this balances the conventional focus on political affairs, especially those of northern Europe, with equally detailed attention to medieval society as it developed in the Mediterranean. In addition, the author describes the ways in which the medieval Latin West attempted to understand the unified and rational structure of the human cosmos, which they believed existed beneath the observable diversity and disorder of the world. This effort to re-create a human ordering of "unity through diversity" provides an essential key to understanding medieval Europe and the ways in which it regarded and reacted to the worlds around it. Thoroughly updated and redesigned, the second edition features new illustrations. Moreover, it offers an analysis of gender, along with an examination of the tumultuous relationship between the Mediterranean and Islam.

📒Homosexuality In Medieval Europe ✍ Tobias Lanslor
✏Homosexuality in Medieval Europe Book Summary : Although the church condemned homosexuality in the late Middle Ages, they had not been too worried about homosexual behavior, and such an attitude also prevailed in the secular world. However, around the thirteenth century, these tolerant attitudes changed dramatically. Some historians relate this change to the climate of fear and intolerance that prevailed in the century against minority groups that departed from the norm of the majority. This persecution reached its peak in the medieval Inquisition, when the Cathars and Waldenses sects were accused of obscenity, sodomy and Satanism. In 1307, accusations of sodomy and homosexuality were important during the Knights Templar trial.

📒Monasteries On The Borders Of Medieval Europe ✍ Emilia Jamroziak
✏Monasteries on the Borders of Medieval Europe Book Summary : As a historical and cultural phenomenon, monasticism always had a close connection with frontiers. The earliest monasteries were believed to be founded in wildernesses and deserts, thus existing beyond society and the inhabited world in general. As intercessors praying for their patrons and benefactors, monastic communities also existed on the border between the earthly and the spiritual worlds. In medieval Europe, however, the frontier nature of monasticism had specific manifestations in addition to the founding myths of monastic wilderness. In the twelfth and thirteenth centuries the expansion of Latin Europe in East-Central Europe, the Iberian Peninsula, Scandinavia, and into the Holy Land and Greece opened possibilities for extending monastic networks and establishing new houses. One of the most important parts of this process was the interaction between these new religious communities and the social world around them-an interaction that was characterised by various shades of hostility, cooperation, and adaptation to the local social and cultural framework. This is the first collection to consider the phenomenon of monastic frontiers in a cross-disciplinary manner. The book's ten chapters explore the role of monasteries in maintaining political and cultural borders, in breaking and sustaining linguistic boundaries in late medieval Europe, as well as in building and stabilizing Latin Christian cultural identities on the northern and southern frontiers of Europe. Using a wide range of textual, archaeological, and material evidence, an international group of authors examines the expansion of monastic and mendicant networks in Scandinavia, Iberia, East-Central Europe, the British Isles, northern France, the Balkans, and Frankish Greece.
