Product Description

Review

"...a graceful and evocative account of those matters that is well suited for use in advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate courses in medieval history and the history of religion....His account draws upon a wide range of narrative and documentary evidence, as well as literary and artistic artifacts from the period he surveys." James A. Brundage, History

Book Description

This is the first one-volume survey in English of religion and devotion in Europe between 1215 and 1515, focussing on spirituality rather than on institutional history. Intended primarily as a student textbook, it provides essential background for a proper appreciation of medieval western society.

First Sentence
Although it is no longer the habit to refer to the pre-Reformation centuries as the 'Age of Faith', nevertheless religion and devotion presupposed a foundation of faith, defined and made accessible. Read the first page

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an extremely interesting book. While covering difficult themes and concepts, it is written in a highly engaging manner, and is very readable. The concept of "faith" and its demands for lay people during this period is very well described in Chapter 2, setting up the background required for further analysis in the following chapters:
Access to the Faith
Religious Life
Devotion
The pilgrimage of life and death
Priests, people and power
Inclusion and exclusion
The reality of religion

Many difficult themes are explained and drawn out for the reader in highly interesting ways, enhanced by contemporary examples throughout the book. The integral impact of religion on the lay person in Medeival Europe during this period is very well presented, and the end result is a highly readable, highly entertaining, and above all highly interesting book which it was a joy to dive into.

Highly recommended to anyone wanting to learn more about medieval religion, particularly its impact on the ordinary person; and for anyone wanting to understand some of the ecclesiastical concepts and contexts within which such medieval religion was `lived'.
