ISBN: 978-1846825613

Este volumen desafía la percepción tradicional de la Edad Media, explorando las muchas formas en las cuales fue activamente transformadora y cómo las ideas de cambio son entendidas reflexivamente dentro del discurso académico. La época medieval fue considerada durante mucho tiempo como un oscuro contrapunto a la época clásica y al Renacimiento, siendo percibida como algo estático y monolítico. A pesar de esto, el período medieval fue testigo de una inmensa transición y transformación, de cambio y desarrollo.
