Where to buy it


In the Middle Ages, stories were told to entertain, distract, and teach. Myths and stories were woven into tapestries, preached in church sermons, and sung at feasts. Using examples from all over the medieval world, this lovely book shows how myths and legends influenced people’s lives, and how these stories were immortalized through oral story-telling, in music, and in crafts.

Medieval Myths, Legends, and Songs (Medieval World)

Minstrels, jongleurs, troubadours… These storytellers told and sang myths, animal tales, legends about saints, kings, heroes and warriors – they also performed in plays.
