This New York Times bestseller, titled A World Lit Only by Fire: The Medieval Mind and the Renaissance: Portrait of an Age, written by the iconic American historian William Manchester, is a non-fiction novel that is divided into three sections: "The Medieval Mind", "The Shattering", and "One Man Alone". From stories of honorable knights, to the barbarity of trial by ordeal, no other era has been a greater source of admiration, terror, and fascination than the Middle Ages, the era in which this book is based on. This lengthy piece of literature leads us from a civilization on the edge of decline, to the glory of its mighty Renaissance; which just so happens to be a magnificent milestone in today's history, introducing the birth of fine art and literature. Manchester describes a world that is much different from our modern-day society in the first section of the book, titled "The Medieval Mind", and we see a certain kind of attitude which is rarely seen today. Manchester stresses at the fact that the peasants in the Dark Ages had absolutely no knowledge of what was happening in the rest of the world.
