Description

The relationship between the Late Middle Ages and the beginning of modern times is still being controversially discussed. Some view the 14th and 15th century as a period of decline, others emphasize this era s formative and innovative role in modern times. Volume 31 of Miscellanea Mediaevalia takes an interdisciplinary look at this period while addressing critical, classic evaluations."

Review quote

"Insgesamt ein gelungener und anregender Bd., der die verschiedenen Diskussionsebenen und die Vielfaltigkeit spatmittelalterlichen Denkens ins rechte Fruhlingslicht ruckt und eher die geistige Regsamkeit einer bluhenden Zeit zeigt denn herbstliches Verwelken."Henrik Wels in: Mittellateinisches Jahrbuch 1/2007 "Questo volume ha il grande merito dunque di portare alla riflessione della medievistica internazionale importanti problemi metodologici. [...] Questo volume e dunque un contributo importante al superamento di simili categorie onnicomprensive."Ubaldo Villani-Lubelli in: Rivista di Storia della Filosofia 4/2006 "Es handelt sich, [...], um einen wichtigen wertvollen Beitrag zur Historiographie des Mittelalters."Francisco Bertelloni in: Mediaevistik 2006"
