Focussing on individuals whose ideas shaped intellectual life between 400 and 1500, Fifty Key Medieval Thinkers is an accessible introduction to those religious, philosophical and political concepts central to the medieval worldview. Including such diverse figures as Bede and Wyclif, each entry presents a biographical outline, a list of works and a summary of their main theories, alongside suggestions for further reading. Chronologically arranged, and with an introductory essay which presents important themes in context, this volume is an invaluable reference tool for all students of Medieval Europe.

'a useful reference for all medieval intellectual historians' - Parergon

'The fact-seeking undergraduate will rapidly find a clear and comprehensive account of who a thinker was, what he thought and why her mattered; the more intellectually curious general reader will find that - as with any good reference book - serendipitous inquiry will open fascinating windows on to the medieval world-view.' - Church Times
