    when you remember the plot but not the title or author.

    Another good series is Sharon Newman's series starting with Death Comes as an Epiphany.  It is set in France and includes stuff about the Crusades and problems between Christians and Jews.  So it is a bit later in history, I think around the 15th century.

      Catherine Levendeur is a younger contemporary of Cadfael. Newman's novels start in the late 1130's. Remember, Cadfael was a crusader before he was a monk. By the 15th century the Crusades were long over. Some guy named Columbus who badly underestimated the circumference of the Earth took a boat trip in the 15th century.
