In Search of the Holy Grail.
Ortenberg shows how we still live in a Medieval Age in the 21st century. She argues that many artistic, political and literary movements have drawn inspiration from the thousand years between AD 500 and 1500. It's all around us, and she helps us see how it has evolved in modern thinking, through phases such as Gothic and Romantic. Our political institutions rely on medieval terms and concepts. Even our pastimes hark back to medieval times. Explore medieval links to modern occupations such as murder mysteries, the Heritage industry, New Age Celticism, and fantasy fiction. Trade Paper.
