Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled How the West Was Won contains the Table of Contents, the Preface, the publications of Burcht Pranger, and notes on contributors. The book contains articles in three main areas of the humanities. It focuses on various aspects of literary imagination, with essays ranging from Petrarch to Voltaire; on the canon, with essays on western history as one of shifting cultural horizons and ideals, and including censorship; and on the Christian Middle Ages, when an interesting combination of religion and culture stimulated the monastic and intellectual experiments of Anselm of Canterbury and Peter Abelard.

Keywords: Burcht Pranger; Christian Middle Ages; How the West Was Won
