MONTAILLOU Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie 1980
‘Just occasionally history books themselves make history. This is the case with Montaillou’ – Economist.
‘A fascinating sociologist study of medieval life. But it is also far more. It is a Chaucerian gallery of vivid medieval persons. No wonder it has been a best-seller in France’ – Hugh Trevor-Roper in the Sunday Times.
The cover shows a roundel depicting heretics embracing the faithful, from a Bible Moralisee in the Bodleian Library, Oxford
