by Sidney Painter

“A complete and colourful account of the period of European history A.D. 284-1500, covering such subjects as the growth and development of the Christian faith and church organisation, the rise and decline of the feudal states, and the slow evolution of the European nations and the European economy to the point where the modern era begins.
The authors purpose is to delineate the leading and formative themes of the period.  Special subjects such as the brilliant flowering of the Byzantine Empire are considered in detail without obstructing the main course of the narrative in Western Europe.  The economic basis of society is kept constantly in view, and the manners and morals of men in each period form an intimate part of the survey.”
