  1. I was reading this one for WAY too long but, admittedly, it was awfully difficult to get into The book is divided into ten chapters, each of them is supposed to introduce a different figure from those times a monk, a knight, a merchant etc Each one of these chapters is an article written by a different author Sounds great, sounds up my alley, but in fact about half of it was a mild torture to go through First off, some chapters were absorbing than others, not because of their subject, but becau [...]



  2. Avevo preso questo libro, che poi pi che un libro un compendio no che un compendio non sia un libro, anzi, potrei citarne vari esempi scritti da autori medioevali come Sant Anselmo da Aosta, San Tommaso d Aquino, Sant Agostino, filosofi come Abelardo, Alberto Magno, Bacone ovviamente non solo di filosofia si trattava, ma anche di arte, basti pensare ad artisti del calibro di Giotto, Giovanni e Nicola Pisano, solo per citarne alcuni andrebbero altres inseriti nel contesto sociale politico e cultu [...]


  3. I suppose the idea could have worked vignettes written by respected scholars of medieval history , but this a case where the work is something less than the sum of its parts As would be expected from having multiple authors, there really wasn t a lot of continuity between the segments and the overall quality was very mixed I can t recall anything written in this book that I haven t found elsewhere in other works, so there s really nothing compelling to recommend it It s not bad or unreadable hen [...]


  4. I don t have the languages to compare with the originals, but I get the sense that the English translation is not of the highest quality The chapters vary quite a lot in readability, sometimes due to organization, sometimes due to possibly indifferent translation I do like the concept, a series of type portraits, and there is quite a lot of information to be absorbed.


  5. Le Goff storico di razza, e questo libro forse la cosa pi divulgativa che abbia scritto Utile per avvicinarsi al suo mondo, assolutamente superfluo se avete letto altro dell autore.
