At the beginning of the 15th century Europe hovered on the brink of a modern age. Great changes were evident throughout the continent in society, politics, art, commerce and religion. Beginning with a chapter on the political disputes which determined Europe's borders, in particular the Hapsburg Dynasty, this fully illustrated volume describes everyday life for both the aristocracy and the peasantry in Europe at this time. The author explains how people lived, worshipped, waged war and coped with the plagues and tragedies that befell them.
