The Historians of Angevin England

Michael Staunton

  • The first and only book on the subject of historical writing in Angevin England, a period that has been called the 'golden age' of medieval historical writing in England
  • Provides an introduction to the subject for the uninitiated, and the definitive reference work for those familiar with the area
  • Uses examples of work from nine historians, including Roger of Howden, Ralph of Diceto, William of Newburgh, Gerald of Wales, and Gervase of Canterbury
  • Examines the insights these historians provide into medieval attitudes and mentalities on subjects such as kingship, rebellion, crusade, warfare, religion, government, women, heretics, and foreigners
