(p.1) Introduction
Black Legacies

Lynn T. Ramey

University Press of Florida

The Middle Ages first became a subject of academic study in the nineteenth century. This book focuses on the occurrence of black-white problems and racial prejudice in the West during the Middle Ages and the legacy this left. It aims to provide an understanding of some of the themes surrounding race that have existed since that time. It analyzes the question of color and genetics and reviews the primary currents of racial theory. The book also examines the passing down of these histories and the role of the Middle Ages in this. It further looks at the religious context in the treatment of racial origin. In addition, this book focuses on medieval views on inheritance, reproduction, and miscegenation.

Keywords:   Middle Ages, race, racial theory, genetics, miscegenation, inheritance
