Great Lives from History: The Middle Ages

Great Lives from History: The Middle Ages, 477-1453 is the second installment in the revised and expanded Great Lives series. Major world leaders appear here--emperors, conquerors, kings, and khans--as well as the giants of religious faith who were central to the medieval world: popes, monks, and saints who left their imprint on political as well as spiritual institutions. The set also includes figures who have received little or no attention in the past--from the seventh century queen of the Berbers Damia el-Kahina to the eleventh century Italian gynecologist Trotula.
