This volume surveys the wide range of cultural and intellectual changes in western Europe in the period 1050-1250. "The Twelfth-Century Renaissance" first establishes the broader context for the changes and introduces the debate on the validity of the term "Renaissance" as a label for the period. Summarizing current scholarship, without imposing a particular interpretation of the issues, the book provides an accessible introduction to a vibrant and vital period in Europe's cultural and intellectual history.
