The book most often will be a speech about the Middle Ages in the traditional sense, that is, the period from V to XV century, but Jacques Le Goff speaks about another possible dating of the Middle Ages, when they were extended until the end of the XVIII century, ie before the French Revolution and the industrial revolution. In this case, they include the Renaissance (XV-XVI century), which Le Goff examines how medieval Renaissance. He considers it useful to consult and to this era.
