The fourth volume in Will Durant's Pulitzer Prize–winning series, The Age of Faith surveys the medieval achievements and modern significance of Christian, Islamic, and Judaic life and culture. Like the other volumes in the Story of Civilization series, this is a self-contained work, which at the same time fits into a comprehensive history of mankind. It includes the dramatic stories of St. Augustine, Hypatia, Justinian, Mohammed, Harun al-Rashid, Charlemagne, William the Conqueror, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Richard the Lionheart, Saladin, Maimonides, St. Francis, St. Thomas Aquinas, Roger Bacon, and many others, all in the perspective of integrated history. The greatest love stories in literature—of H├®loise and Ab├®lard, of Dante and Beatrice—are here retold with enthralling scholarship.

This book is awesome. Brilliantly read and so thorough.information presented without bias. The narrator is brilliant to boot. Don’t be daunted by the listening time- it’s an unputdownable tome of historical information and it makes sense of our past. If there was a 6 out of 5 star rating- I’d go there

n amazing book, very informative! i didn't have a clue about how the middle ages effects our modern life and societies, the 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and the 13th centuries wasn't static after all. i also didn't know also that the Muslim and Hebrew scholars transmit the Greek knowledge to west Europe.
