The Modern Origins of the Early Middle Ages

Ian Wood

  • First study of how interest in the early Middle Ages developed throughout Western Europe
  • Places the historiography in its political, social, and intellectual context, thus directed to modernists as well as medievalists
  • Provides a full account of major theories which have been unjustly forgotten
  • Looks beyond the normal bounds of academic historiography, incorporating exhibitions and works of literature
