Summary "The style of the medieval period, which inhabits the bloodstream of western culture, was vigorously re-established in post-Enlightenment England. This one-volume history of the Medieval Revival as a whole is the first coherent account of its social, political, religious, architectural and artistic aspects, especially as these are expressed and reflected in literature. Its focus is on the period 1760 to 1971, with an Epilogue on the reverberations of medievalism in the present day."--Jacket.
