About the Author

Barbara H. Rosenwein is a professor emerita in history at Loyola University Chicago.


"Barbara H. Rosenwein's A Short History of the Middle Ages remains the standard, elegantly written and beautifully illustrated. With this edition, Rosenwein has widened the scope, bringing readers into Kievan Rus' and the Islamic world; added new features, which reinforce and deepen understanding; and incorporated the latest scholarly debates. A Short History of the Middle Ages is an indispensable teaching tool."

- Hussein Fancy, Yale University

"Written in a lucid, engaging style, A Short History of the Middle Ages remains the best survey of medieval history in print today. Barbara H. Rosenwein skillfully balances the story of medieval Europe and the Mediterranean with fascinating commentary on connections across Eurasia and, by 1500, to the Americas. The text includes new maps; many full-color reproductions of art, artifacts, and architecture; and updated suggestions for further reading."

- Celia Chazelle, The College of New Jersey
