An opportunity to experience the daily hustle and bustle of life in the late Middle Ages, "A Day in a Medieval City" provides a captivating dawn-to-dark account of medieval life. A visual trek through the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries -- with seasoned medieval historian Chiara Frugoni as guide -- this book offers a vast array of images and vignettes that depict the everyday hardships and commonplace pleasures of people living in the Middle Ages.
"A Day in a Medieval City" breathes life into the activities of city streets, homes, fields, schools, and places of worship. With entertaining anecdotes and gritty details, it engages the modern reader with its discoveries of the religious, economic, and institutional practices of the day. From urban planning and education to child care, hygiene, and the more leisurely pursuits of games, food, books, and superstitions, Frugoni unearths the daily routines of private and public life. Beginning in the countryside and moving to the city and inside private homes, stunning color images throughout offer a visual ramble through medieval Florence, Venice, and Rome. "A Day in a Medieval City" is a charming portal to the Middle Ages that you'll surely want with you on your travels to Europe--or in your armchair.
“Stunningly beautiful . . . and a good read as well. . . . It’s amazing how much wealth of detail and image Ms. Frugoni has packed into this delightful, relatively small book.”— (Washington Times)
Chiara Frugoni is professor emerita of medieval studies at the University of Rome.
