Format: Hardcover
This book is a stunning collection of source material that can be used for study or just to browse through at home. It covers basic and advanced readers, but is best for those who want a visual guide to the medieval period. It's packed with more pictures than you can imagine, in excellent reproductions. There are many similar looking books on the market today, especially in discount shops, but this one is the genuine article and doesn't just give poor copies of the best known images with dodgy text. It's well written and researched, well presented and amazing value for money. I was given it as a gift and am anxious to get hold of the Renaissance edition...

17 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Ms. V. Hoyle VINE VOICE on 19 May 2003
Format: Hardcover
This is a veritable banquet of visual medieaeval sources from the collapse of the Roman Empire to the earliest Renaissance. Medieval Panorama has over 800 illustrations (612 in vibrant colour) drawn from archives, libraries and museums across the world (not just Europe) and all well organised into themed chapters.
There are eight sections in total covering everything from religion, political structure/knighthood/chivalry/ceremony, medieval art, sex/death, the inner world of alchemy, witchcraft, magic, courtly love and romance, to a final chapter on cultures outside mediaeval Europe. There are also succinct biographies of key personalities, from Charlemagne to Wycliffe, with timelines, maps and a stunning bibliography to accompany them.
The volume is beautifully presented with a glossy, gorgeous jacket and a sturdy green bound cloth underneath. The illustrations are accompanied by a scholarly text written by the accomplished Robert Bartlett. As usual he has truly outdone himself to shine within the field.
Bartlett is one of the world's most distinguished mediaeval historians, honoured for the scope and depth of his understanding. A better editor couldn't have been found. He weaves together all the tangled strands of mediaeval art, architecture and intellectual world with a seemingly effortless commentary.
A beautiful, grand project, a snip at £20 on Amazon, for both scholar, student and those with a general interest. Buy your copy immediately and treasure it for years to come.

This would be the best illustrated history of the Middle Ages I have ever seen. The images are quite spectacular and beautifully reproduced. The quality is excellent. The reader feels as if they are just looking through a window into the past.
The arrangement by topic, following an easily accessible introduction, makes for a most pleasurable journey through this most fascinating period of European history.
