"Rereading Huizinga allows readers to examine once more Huizinga’s text, taking a fresh look at Autumn’s contributions to the fields of history, art, and literature. [...] This volume is an important reconsideration of a key publication on late medieval history, of interest to scholars in a variety of disciplines as well as time periods."

"[The] temptation [to taste the forbidden fruit of Herfsttij] is unlikely to be resisted by readers of Re-reading Huizinga: Autumn of the Middle Ages a Century Later. The fruit is tasted, criticised—sometimes strenuously—and appraised in this wide-ranging re-appraisal of Herfsttij and its author. This collection of important essays originated in an international conference held in New York in November 1996, the year in which the new English translation of Herfsttij by Payton and Mammitzsch appeared. An Introduction by two of the editors, Peter Arnade and Martha Howell, outlines a major purpose of the volume: to try to explain how and why Herfsttij ‘remains one of the masterpieces of Western historical scholarship’."
