Well written and researched, Mysteries of the Middle Ages: And the Beginning of the Modern World (Hinges of History) is a study of the contributions and influences in the areas of science, art, education, and philosophy (feministic thought) brought about by the Catholic Church that ultimately formed the basis of the Renaissance in Western civilization.

With Cahill citing stories, the lives and the writings of prominent medievals, Hildegard of Bingen, Eleanor of Aquitane, Francis of Assisi and others exhibit the vision and intellect of modern thought, from sex and relationships to science and education as we know it today.

I liked the general layout of this book and the use of maps, illustrations and pictures. Although the title is a little misleading, in that there should be some reference to its emphasis on religion, it is still an interesting and informative aspect of the Middle Ages. Recommended for students or those with an interest in religion or the Middle Ages.
