Book of the Month: Magnificence and Princely Splendour in the Middle Ages

Our next book in the Book of the Month Club will be Magnificence and Princely Splendour in the Middle Ages, by Richard Barber.

How do you recognise a king when you see one? This book focuses on the display of kingly grandeur. From feasting and ceremonies to the “magnificent” collections of jewels, manuscripts and holy relics that were displayed to a handful of favoured visitors. Magnificence¬†celebrates many of the high points of the medieval world, drawing them together in a sumptuous volume.
