Heroes of the Middle Ages

Gelesen von Kristine Bekere

(3,083 Sterne; 6 Bewertungen)

"The object of this book is to bring together stories of the most important movements in the history of Europe during the Middle Ages, and to make familiar the names of the most important figures in those scenes. I have endeavoured to weave a tapestry in which, with due colour, may be traced the history of the rise and fall of the various nationalities and the circumstances and mode of life of each—in short, to give the young reader an approximation to the background for the study of his country's history which a wide reading gives to a man." (Summary from the Preface of Heroes of the Middle Ages by Eva March Tappan) (5 hr 4 min)

Archaic title

(3 Sterne)

The modern, updated title of this book should be, “Historical, Mythical and Legendary Figures of the Middle Ages Many of Whom Were Anything But Heroic.”

Well done!

Thanks Kristine Bekere! I appreciate the effort in reading these classics and making them more accessible.

Reader's voice is hard to take.
