(Terry Jones investigates the mystery surrounding the death of Geoffrey Chaucer over 600 years ago. A diplomat and brother-in-law to John of Gaunt, one of the most powerful men in the kingdom, Chaucer was celebrated as his country's finest living poet, rhetorician and scholar: the preeminent intellectual of his time. And yet nothing is known of his death. In 1400 his name simply disappears from the record. We don't know how he died, where or when; there is no official confirmation of his death and no chronicle mentions it; no notice of his funeral or burial. He left no will and there's nothing to tell us what happened to his estate. He didn't even leave any manuscripts. How could this be? What if he was murdered?)

Terry Jones' Medieval Lives
by Terry Jones

(the book based on the Jones's television series; to Terry, the medieval period is one of endless fascination, and its people not the benighted barbarians the humanists imagined but members of a rich and vibrant culture; taking some of the standard stereotypes of medieval people we all have -- the peasant, the outlaw, the monk, the damsel -- Terry investigates the reality behind the image; what he reveals undermines our conventional views of the Middle Ages)

Medieval Views of the Cosmos
by Evelyn Edson and Emilie Savage-Smith, foreword by Terry Jones

(before our modern understanding of an infinite formless space scattered with pulsating stars, revolving planets, and mysterious black holes, the universe was seen as a rigid hierarchical system with the earth and the human race at its center; this book investigates this worldview shared by medieval societies, revealing how their modes of thought affect us even today; Terry Jones wrote the foreword to this book)
