Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0971732531, Paperback)The Dark Ages? What were they? When were they? What relevance do they have for the present? These are some of the questions national award winning author Elizabeth Lewis addresses in The Twilight of the First Millennium: Light on the Dark Ages. Dr. Lewis has a Ph.D. in Medieval History with a specialty in Symbolism in Christian Art from Georgetown University, but writes for the educated lay person without a background in this field. Dr. Lewis touches all aspects of life in this period including art, architecture, music, literature, and living conditions. Hear the rats running over head as Pope Gregory the Great continues his correspondence which will literally change the world. Feel the warm, smooth stones of the ancient Irish monastery of Skellig Michael. Relish the colored illustrations which, with Dr. Lewis's brilliant commentary, make the past shine into the present.
