Author's Arrogance and Ignorance is Apalling
by FrederickArehart on June 23, 2011Was looking forward to a good read concerning an era that is not well known. Instead I got a bunch of nonsense.
Manchester's reputation as a researcher and writer takes a big hit in the groin with this book. His research is sloppy, his characterization of historical figures is profoundly soap operatic and his twisting of events and people is breathtaking.
He obviously has a large axe to grind. It seems determined to portray anyone and everything about Medieval Europe as perverts and reprobates. He never does reveal why he is so obsessed, but, something about this era gives him an atomic wedgie.
Manchester is totally without any sense of historiography concerning the Medieval era.
All in all a book on the order of "Chariots of the Gods" in its twisting of real world people and events. Personally, am considering burning my copy rather than inflict it upon an innocent soul at the Goodwill.
