Product Description


By dwelling on the ways in which local politics, culture, geography, and even individual personalities contributed to the uneven development of 'saints' cults in Gaul, Van Dam shows us their sheer 'unpredictability.' In the process, he has given us an unquestionably richer picture that can only enhance our understanding of the times. Journal of Early Christian Studies --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
