The Great Books List for Middle Ages

Reading and selecting The Great Books can be a challenging process and one not taken lightly. I have a very detailed post about The Great Books of Classic Literature that can help you learn more about these works and their authors .

PARENTS! A word of caution about some of these books — please review these books or pre-read them yourselves before handing over to your child. Some of these books have very mature content that you may not want to expose them to you just yet. A good place to get a review is Goodreads and Amazon
