Artz on the arts, as on philosophy, politics and other aspects of culture, makes lively and informative reading. - The Washington Post. I approach the reader like St. Denis, with my head in my hands. I know that no specialist would write a book that ranges from Moses and Homer to Erasmus and Machiavelli.
An age that was, in reality, not all that "dark. I am not a historian, but I have a great interest in the Middle Ages. I wanted a book for reference to the topics and ideas of the times. In the first part of the book, Artz covers the influence of the east (what he calls the "Classical Background"). In this part, Artz discusses medieval Christianity, the Influence of the Jews, Latin and Greek influence, and Islamic influence. This book is not so much a history book in the sense that it doesn't devote its full attention to wars and etc.
It is an excellent introduction to the intellectual milieu of the Middle Ages.
Artz, long time professor at Oberlin College, died in 1983. This is still being published. It is an excellent introduction to the intellectual milieu of the Middle Ages. A must have book for any Medievalist. May 14, 2018 Leif Biberg Kristensen rated it it was amazing. I've read this book two times; once when I bought it around 1988,.

In the history of Europe, the Middle Ages (or medieval period) lasted from the 5th to the 15th century. It began with the fall of the Western Roman Empire and merged into the Renaissance and the Age of Discovery. The Middle Ages is the middle period of the three traditional divisions of Western history: classical antiquity, the medieval period, and the modern period. The medieval period is itself subdivided into the Early, High, and Late Middle Ages.
The late Frederick B. Artz was one of them. Artz s original interest was intellectual history, but his teachers in graduate school regarded that new field with suspicion and urged him to specialize in something more traditional. Accordingly, his first two books were in straight political history and made him a leading authority on early nineteenth-century Europe. After that Artz felt free to return to his first love. The results were his celebrated course, European Intellectual History from St. Augustine to Marx, and a series of six books (including this one) on the history of ideas.

A Historical Survey of the Middle Ages. com User, November 25, 2000. This particular text used to be the standard textbook 40 years ago for teachers and students of Medieval history. Does this mean that this book is outdated or no longer a good text? Not necessarily. The one thing I like about this text is the fact that Artz covers attitudes, arts and literature, as well as the atmosphere of learning that permeated the middle ages.
