"L'Europa oggi è ancora da fare e addirittura da pensare. Il passato propone, ma non dispone, il presente è determinato tanto dal caso e dal libero arbitrio quanto dall'eredità del passato€?. Dalla storia, dalle tracce e dai resti delle numerose trasformazioni che dalle rovine dell'impero romano giungono fino a noi, Jacques Le Goff riporta alla luce l'eredità medievale dell'Europa contemporanea. Un intenso viaggio a ritroso nel tempo, nella speranza che gli europei, comprendendo meglio la loro provenienza, costruiscano meglio anche il loro futuro.

In this ground-breaking new study,Jacques Le Goff, arguably the leading medievalist of his generation, presents his view of the primacy of the Middle Ages in the development of European history.

"[A] superb and necessary book. This provocative assessment from a lifetime of scholarship might help us to place ourselves, not just territorially, but in that other precious element of history: time." The Guardian
"A book that never fails to be informative, readable and provocative. Le Goff... has been the bravest and best of champions for medieval history. This book... is in every sense an inspiration." BBC History Magazine
Praised by prominent figures in Europe and history including: Rt Hon Christopher Patten, CH, Former Member of the European Commission, and Neil Kinnock, Vice-President, European Commission.
