The dozen essays in this collection focus on the ways in which modern European culture has responded to its medieval past. Delivered at an interdisciplinary conference which was held in Trinity College, Dublin, in July 1999, the essays are organised around the concepts of reason and community. Through a series of penetrating casestudies in art, history, literature and philosophy, the collection illustrates the complexity of modern attitudes to the medieval world. Written by a group of young academics, the collection demonstrates how the appropriation of the medieval world, by both sympathisers and critics, has contributed to the definition of modernity.
