The Birth of Capitalism. The Golden Age of Flanders

A Binovular Twin Book in which two idiosyncratic authors give their views on the social, economic, cultural and religious developments in the medieval Southern Netherlands and by means of the same themic ingredients, each lays their own egg.

Golden Times. Wealth and Status in the Middle Ages

The Middle Ages are still considered a dark, backward period in history, but it is in that era that we find the roots of our society today, of democracy, of capitalism. In many respects, the Middle Ages in the southern Low Countries were more modern than the widely acclaimed Renaissance. In this book, young researchers sweep you off on a journey through these fascinating ‘golden times’ of dynamic cities, independent women, international networks of trade and commerce, organized workers and world-class artists. The economic history of the Middle Ages is described from the innovative perspective of various groups in society and illustrated with countless artworks that have never been displayed before.
