a great read and very informative
10 January 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
I ordered this book in order to write a book review on it for an undergraduate class I took entitled Christians, Muslims and Jews in the Middle Ages. The authors, two professors of medieval history, at Catholic University of America and University of London Queen Mary respectively, organized and hosted an international conference of the same name as the book – Charisma and Religious Authority” Jewish, Christian and Muslim Preaching 1200-1600 – in July of 2004 at the University of London. The book examines religious preaching in the three monotheistic faiths through the framework of anthropologist Max Weber’s sociological understanding of charismatic authority. The book is a collection of essays, a great read and very informative. Where as the collection of papers does provide insight into the preaching traditions of the faiths and how they vary, it fails to contextualize implications for religious cultural expectations. There is no direct comparison between the preaching traditions of the religious leadership of the respective faiths.
