Medieval Literacy: A Compendium of Medieval Knowledge With The Guidance of C. S. Lewis
Reading Medieval Literacy is nothing less than undertaking a journey with an expert tour guide through the concepts, patterns, and systems of thought and of belief that define the central millennium of the Common Era. Not to mention that this beautifully written intellectual history is a terrific read straight through…James Grote brings into sharp focus the elements of the “discarded image,” as his source of inspiration, C. S. Lewis, termed the lost harmony of the medieval mind.
“Grote’s Medieval Literacy is the book I’ve been waiting years for. It fills a void that has long existed in medieval studies. The major literature courses I teach (Chaucer, the Early British survey, C. S. Lewis and the Inklings) have needed exactly this text.” – Stephen Yandell, Ph.D., Department of English, Xavier University
“This book can be helpful as well in history, art, philosophy, theology, and even music classes that have a medieval focus or component.” – James Lynch, Ph.D., Visiting Assistant Professor, Indiana University, Bloomington
