From Our Editors

Medieval Lives brings a unique historic perspective to the Middle Ages as it reconstructs the day-to-day conversations of eight men and women who led remarkable lives and yet were representative of their times. Cantor's innovative approach gives an immediacy to medieval life rarely encountered in conventional biographies.
