Product Description


“Summing Up.  Highly recommended.  Especially libraries that lack the second edition; lower–level undergraduates and above; general readers.”  ( Choice , 1 September 2013)


“This book remains a classic, easily the most fascinating introduction to the field for anyone new to it, and also capable of forcing experts into taking on new ideas; a summation of Peter Brown′s mould–breaking work.” – Chris Wickham, University of Oxford “Interpretations of late antiquity and of western Christendom have changed dramatically in the last decade. This anniversary edition explains the changes with Peter Brown′s characteristic brilliance and range of learning.” – Gillian Clark, University of Bristol
