In their introduction to this anthology, James Bruce Ross and Mary Martin McLaughlin remind us that "no area of the past is dead if we are alive to it. The variety, the complexity, the sheer humanity of the middle ages live most meaningfully in their own authentic voices." The Portable Medieval Reader assembles an entire chorus of those voices - of kings, warriors, prelates, merchants, artisans, chroniclers, and scholars - that together convey a lively, intimate impression of a world that might otherwise seem immeasurably alien.
