The overwhelming majority of the sources date from 1075 to 1225, with a focus on Northwestern Europe"--Summary: Spiritual Renewal and the formation of theology -- Schools, scholars, and the liberal arts -- Polemical confrontations with Jews, Muslims, and heretics -- Establishing a new order : government and law -- Love and its discontents -- Experimentations in liturgical and secular poetry -- Art and architecture : theory and practice -- Historical writing and romance -- Medicine, science, and translation
