"The plane is, therefore, to bring together a significant number of textes that present, or contribute to defining the "state of the art" achieved to date by recent historical production in the subject areas considered. These texts have two objectives : firts, to summarize briefly, and from a critical perspective, the progress made by recent research, the problems outstanding, including possible shortcomings in the investigation, and, secondly, to demonstrate perspectives for the future, either in line with what has been achieved, or with any changes in methodology or in the bases of interpretation." José Mattoso, "Preface"

"Here is the final result of that effort, available to all scholars of the Middle Ages, for thier work, for their criticism and as a stimulus to go beyond what is presented here." Editors’ Note
