Catholic Middle Ages Reading List

Mr. Campbell, our history instructor, will be using Evolution of the Medieval World by David Nicholas as the required textbook for his spring course, The Catholic Middle Ages. We recommend purchasing the paperback used as it can be found as cheap as $4.60.

Also, for the student who would like to delve deeper into the Middle Ages, Mr. Campbell provides the following book list. These books are only recommended and not required.

The Birth of France, Katherine Scherman
Two Lives of Charlemagne, Penguin Classics
Joinville and Villehardouin: Chronicles of the Crusades, Penguin Classics
Life in a Medieval Village, Francis and Joseph Gies
Readings in Medieval History, Patrick Geary (any edition)
Francis of Assisi, Michael De la Bedoyere
St. Dominic, Mary Dorcy, O.P.
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Signet Classics (Raffel)
Philosophy and Civilization in the Middle Ages, Maurice De Wulf
St. Thomas Aquinas: The Dumb Ox, G.K. Chesterton
Cistercians and Cluniacs, St. Bernard of Clairvaux (Cistercian Publications)
