The fourteenth century reflects two contradictory images: on one hand, a glittering time of crusades and castles, cathedrals and chivalry; on the other, a time of ferocity and spiritual agony, a world of chaos and the plague. Barbara Tuchman reveals the great rhythms of history and the grain and texture of domestic life as she examines everything from political assassinations, sea battles, corruption, satire and humor, sorcery and demonology, to lawyers, tax collectors, scholars, grocers, knights, and lust and sadism on the stage.

I was blown away by the wealth of information Tuchman provides on social customs, conflicts, religion and day-to-day life in the late Middle Ages. Author Robin LaFevers mentioned this book as her go-to resource for that time period, and some of the content helped to inspire her "His Fair Assassin" series.
