- Publisher's Summary
- Today we view the Middle Ages as a distinct era, but surprisingly, this notion is new, born of the 20th century, when scholars looked back from their own war-ravaged times and discovered a unique culture hidden in what had seemed a historical void. This is the story of that discovery, of the lives of 20 scholars, including Tolkien and Lewis, who first conjured up the spirit of that world.
