The Institute of History at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland is happy to announce the publication of an important volume on mediaeval Poland. Written by an expert in the field, prof. Krzysztof Ozog, the volume "The Role of Poland in the Intellectual Development of Europe in the Middle Ages" reveals little known in Western Europe facts and processes of intellectual development in Poland. Prof. Ozog takes us on an exciting voyage through the circles of intellectuals in a country, which was often referred to as the Antemurale Christianitatis. The achievements of Polish intellectuals are discussed against the broad backgound of Central European and European context, proving, that three-four centuries after introduction of Latin Christianity to Poland, its elites and intellectual life did not differ from that of Western Europe. Poland was a full, equal parter of other European countries.
An important, readable volume for any student of European history, which should find its way to university libraries throughout the whole world.
