Miri Rubin [is] one of the most interesting and original of British medieval historians ... There is room for a whole book on this subject and Rubin is uniquely equipped to write it ... a capacious and vastly learned book ... a treasury (Rowan Williams Financial Times
a wonderfully illuminating history of the mother of Jesus (Telegraph
A remarkable, ambitious and wide-ranging account ... sympathetic and eloquent (Melanie McDonagh Evening Standard
`Miri Rubin's Mother of God is an intellectually exuberant tour-de-force. Like the great cloak that in some medieval images billows out from the Virgin, enclosing her rapt worshipers, this book reaches out to embrace a startling range of human dreams, fears, and hopes across many centuries.'
