About this title


A study of the history of the written word in the Middle Ages, concentrating on the formative period between the Norman Conquest and the death of Edward I, when documents first came into common use and literate habits were established.


When Michael Clanchy’s book From Memory to Written Record was first published in 1979, it was the most important book on English Royal administration in the middle ages that had appeared in a general.... The second edition takes full cognizance of the extensive literature on the subject of morality and literacy, which has been one of the half dozen most discussed aspects of the medieval European world during the past two decades. Clanchy has significantly deepened and enriched his classic study. It is indispensable for not only political, legal and socialhistorians, but also for students of medieval literature and religion. From Memory to Written Record is one of those seminal works that shape the direction of the next generation of historical and social thought. This second edition will remain of the major works on the medieval world for many decades to come. Norman F. Cantor, New York University Reviews of the first edition: "A tour–de–force, a scholarly work which is genuinely hard to put down, and which breaks new ground in its approach." Journal of Legal History "Thought–provoking and wide–ranging . . . one can assert confidently that it is one of the most exciting books on medieval English history to appear in recent years." History "Many familiar assumptions about the medieval world will have to be reconsidered in the light of this book. It is impossible to convey its range or the variety of its implications, but it is possible to insist on its importance." History Today "Clanchy′s work will stand as a remarkable piece of scholarship and as a massive contribution to our understanding of the medieval world." Journal of Library History
