The 13th century is often regarded as the epitome of the Middle Ages. The present volume aims to demonstrate end-of-millennium perspectives in research into this century. The main topics in the book are questions from the fields of theoretical and practical philosophy, theology, the history of institutions, problems in literature, art, learning and education, and cultural contact. This 27th volume of the "Miscellanea Mediaevalia", "Geistesleben im 13. Jahrhundert" contains the papers delivered to the 38th Medievalists' Conference held in Cologne in September 1998, together with a number of additional contributions. In keeping with the basic idea of the Cologne Medievalists' Conferences, the volume is divided into 10 sections containing the 38 papers from philosophy and history, literary history and theology, and the history of learning and the arts.
