Product description

Review

"'Medievalists will welcome Marking the Hours' (Sarah Williams, BBC History Magazine) 'Eamon Duffy's Marking the Hours brilliantly opens up 'windows on men's souls' - as well as being this year's most beautifully produced work of history.' (John Adamson, The Sunday Telegraph) 'This is a glorious feast of a book. Yale University Press has, as always, devoted extraordinary resources to making it both beautiful and good... With Duffy as our guide, the apparently random scribbles of often nameless men and women start to sound like a clear message from the distant past.' (Kathryn Hughes, The Guardian) 'The most beautiful history book of the year' (Ruth Scurr, The Times) 'Once again, as readable and convincing as in The Striping of the Altars, Professor Duffy brings alive the daily life of English people in the two centuries before the Reformation, this time through the beautiful prayer books that they often annotated or defaced in a revealing way.' (Christopher Howse, The Spectator)"
