review God and Reason in the Middle Ages Ô eBook or Kindle ePUB And theology and to a much lesser extent in medicine and law The final chapter describes how the Middle Ages acuired an undeserved reputation as an age of superstition barbarism and unreason. This book is exceptional I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in Medieval history as it carefully exposes one of the most pernicious myths about that period the idea that the middle ages was a period of intellectual decline followed by cultural and intellectual stagnation over the course of 1000 years That is the myth that the middle ages were the dark ages In the process the book rebuts a number of satellite myths eg that everyone in the middles ages believed the earth was flat that the universities of the late middle ages did not produce anything of intellectual technological or cultural value that scholasticism was just pedantic debates over how many angels could fit on the head of a pin etc Grant also gives an excellent overview of how the dark ages myth came to be so entrenched in our cultureThe book is written by an academic and has an academic tone despite being intended for a broader audience This will put off some readers those who have little patience for the study of intellectual history which reuires attention to detail and the careful exposition of ideas and opinions It s easier to write a book of popular history on war revolution or court scandals than it is to write a popular history of the intellectual achievements of an age
