Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Perfect Paperback
This is a great book by one of the most important scholars on St. Boniface, well-written and gorgeously illustrated with good quality photographs. Von Padberg treats Boniface as a man of letters, discussing what books the martyr may have had in his bookcase, culminating in extensive discussion of the Ragyndrudis Codex, the book Boniface according to legend used to shield himself from Frisian swordblows in Dokkum, 754 (Von Padberg is not convinced of the accuracy of the legend). The second part of the book deals at length with the remaining relics, how they were disseminated, and what was left, providing detailed information on the study of the relics in 1964.
For me, this book is a reference I return to again and again; I believe it essential to any student or scholar of the life and death of Boniface and the material remains of a man whose influence on Western Christianity, for better or for worse, cannot be questioned.
