The Age of Faith
The fourth volume in Will Durant's Pulitzer Prizewinning series, ''The Age of Faith'' surveys the medieval achievements and modern significance of Christian, Islamic, and Judaic life and culture. Like the other volumes in the' Story of Civilization' series, this is a selfcontained work, which at the same time fits into a comprehensive history of mankind. It includes the dramatic stories of St. Augustine, Hypatia, Justinian, Mohammed, Harun alRashid, Charlemagne, William the Conqueror, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Richard the Lionheart, Saladin, Maimonides, St. Francis, St. Thomas Aquinas, Roger Bacon, and many others, all in the perspective of integrated history. The greatest love stories in literature of Héloise and Abélard, of Dante and Beatrice are here retold with enthralling scholarship.
Brad Jenkins and Bill Wolfers discuss the subject matter covered in this volume in this recorded series named after the publication: The Age of Faith.
