[first paragraph] The concept of memory is of the utmost importance for an understanding of the Middle Ages as a historic period. In a seminal study on this subject, medieval culture is aptly described as “fundamentally memorial, to the same profound degree that modern culture in the West is documentary.” Memory is for medieval thought what imagination is for the Renaissance and the Enlightenment: the central human capability that sets in motion the flow of intellectual ideas and thoroughly keeps this flow going.
