The Waning of the Middle Ages: A Study of the Forms of Life, Thought, and Art in France and the Netherlands in the XIVth and XVth Centuries

Doubleday, 1956 - 362 pàgines
"This brilliant portrait of the life, thought and art in France and the Netherlands in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries is our most trenchant study of that crucial moment in history when the Middle Ages gave way to the great energy of the Renaissance. From an analysis of the dominating ideas of the times -- those that held the medieval world together, supported its religion and informed its art and literature -- emerges the style of a whole culture at the extreme limit of its development."
