My journey through history (part 2: middle ages)

A Listmania! list by Michel (Netherlands)
The list author says: "The books I have read until now during my 10-year journey through history (2008-2018). My way of reading is 'organic': even though I travel more or less linearly through time, I have no fixed scheme or restrictions. I let myself be guided by the pointers within the books themselves and by my intuition. The objective is not to find the 'truth', but to let voices from different ages tell their own story. Not an objective piece of historical research, but a growing work of art in my mind."
