Booklist Review

This work is designed to introduce important people, places, events, concepts, and customs of the medieval period to middle-and high-school students. In arrangement and design, the set is very similar to Grolier's 10-volume Ancient Civilizations (2000). Some 226 articles are arranged alphabetically, beginning with Abelard and ending with Writing. Entries vary in length from a single page for most individuals to four pages for most countries to six or seven pages for major topics such as Cathedrals, Education, and Jews and Judaism. A full-color illustration appears on every page. Bulleted see also references accompany each article, and sidebars provide expanded information. Maps show the location of empires, states, and cities as they were in the Middle Ages but use modern place-names for the sake of clarity. Each volume ends with the same reference tools: a brief glossary, a time line, a bibliography of both books and Web sites, and a set index. The writing is clear and easy to follow. Although the emphasis is upon European history, there are plenty of entries and sidebars concerning Asia and Africa, and the rise and influence of Islam is covered thoroughly. Some minor editorial decisions are puzzling. Astronomy has a four-page article, but there is no entry for astrology. The subject can be found by using the index, in articles on Magic and superstition, Medicine, and Science and mathematics, but this does not reflect the importance of astrology during the period. Another omission is the contribution of women to the monastic movement. Although it is true that more men entered monasteries than women, it is unfortunate that only the Poor Clares receive mention, within the entry Women. For a similar audience, Scribner's The Middle Ages: An Encyclopedia for Students (1996) has 700 entries. UXL's Middle Ages Reference Library [RBB Ap 1 01] combines broad narrative overviews with a selection of biographies and primary material. Medieval World is the only set that uses full color throughout. It is an attractive and helpful reference source that will provide information on a variety of subjects related to this complex historical period.

The subject can be found by using the index, in articles on Magic and superstition, Medicine, and Science and mathematics, but this does not reflect the importance of astrology during the period. Another omission is the contribution of women to the monastic movement. Although it is true that more men entered monasteries than women, it is unfortunate that only the Poor Clares receive mention, within the entry Women. For a similar audience, Scribner's The Middle Ages: An Encyclopedia for Students (1996) has 700 entries. UXL's Middle Ages Reference Library [RBB Ap 1 01] combines broad narrative overviews with a selection of biographies and primary material. Medieval World is the only set that uses full color throughout. It is an attractive and helpful reference source that will provide information on a variety of subjects related to this complex historical period.


Booklist Review

This work is designed to introduce important people, places, events, concepts, and customs of the medieval period to middle-and high-school students. In arrangement and design, the set is very similar to Grolier's 10-volume Ancient Civilizations (2000). Some 226 articles are arranged alphabetically, beginning with Abelard and ending with Writing. Entries vary in length from a single page for most individuals to four pages for most countries to six or seven pages for major topics such as Cathedrals, Education, and Jews and Judaism. A full-color illustration appears on every page. Bulleted see also references accompany each article, and sidebars provide expanded information. Maps show the location of empires, states, and cities as they were in the Middle Ages but use modern place-names for the sake of clarity. Each volume ends with the same reference tools: a brief glossary, a time line, a bibliography of both books and Web sites, and a set index. The writing is clear and easy to follow. Although the emphasis is upon European history, there are plenty of entries and sidebars concerning Asia and Africa, and the rise and influence of Islam is covered thoroughly. Some minor editorial decisions are puzzling. Astronomy has a four-page article, but there is no entry for astrology.
