The Other Middle Ages introduces selections that cover all aspects and all walks of life, from bawdy songs to somber religious rituals and impudent parodies of the same, from short anecdotes and fables to excerpts from the bestiary tradition. Intermediate Latin students can expect to finish one or more of these enjoyable readings in one sitting, developing their reading skills and giving them a sense of accomplishment. While some selections have been edited for clarity and length, most are unadapted. Notes and vocabulary guide students accustomed to classical Latin through reading medieval texts drawn from a wide range of centuries, geographical locations, and genres Seventy-nine selections of prose and poetry are grouped thematically: Everyday Life • Echoes of Antiquity—Alexander the Great • The Black Death • Perspectives on Women • Anti-Semitism • Wonders and Marvels • The World of the Church • Ritual • Attacks on the Church • Carmina Burana and Goliardic Tradition • The World of Nature and Science.
