    In this ground-breaking work, Norman Cantor explains how our current notion of the Middle Ages—with its vivid images of wars, tournaments, plagues, saints and kings, knights and ladies—was born in the 20th century.

But what the Plague really was, and how it made history, remain shrouded in a haze of myths.
