HISTORY

Book Club: A Distant Mirror by Barbara Tuchman In keeping with this Collegium's theme of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, please join our book club discussion of the classic work by Barbara Tuchman, A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous Fourteenth Century. The fourteenth century gives us back two contradictory images: a glittering time of crusades and castles, cathedrals and chivalry, and a dark time of ferocity and spiritual agony, a world plunged into a chaos of war, fear and the Plague. Barbara Tuchman anatomizes the century, revealing both the great rhythms of history and the grain and texture of domestic life as it was lived. Available on amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, or your local bookstore or library. Paperback, approximately $16.00.
