"Salimbene, the thirteenth-century friar, presents to the modern reader an extraordinarily vivid vision of his world, full of variety, the bizarre, and exasperating confusion which we associate with the underside of the Middle Ages. . . . A work authentically medieval in spirit."—John Baldwin, Johns Hopkins University
