Product Description


"Louis lives and walks through these pages. What Le Goff has given us is more than a biography; it is a work of literature. . . . Given the length of this book, many will be intimidated and will not take up its challenge. That is a pity, for Le Goff has much to offer here. There is no chapter that does not contain information and ideas that deserve to be discussed further." --"The Catholic Historical Review"

About the Author

A prolific medievalist of international renown, JACQUES LE GOFF (1924-) is the former director of studies at the L'Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris. Among his honors is the Dr. A. H. Heineken Prize for History, bestowed in 2004 by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences to Le Goff, for "fundamentally changing our view of the Middle Ages." He was also among the recipients of the 2007 Dan David Prize in recognition of contributions to his discipline.

There is no better book on the subject 3 Dec 2014
By James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The definitive biography. There is no better book on the subject. Absolutely engrossing study of the 13th century in France and the flowering of the Middle Ages.
