This introduction to the history of Christianity during the medieval period brings the student's attention to the historical background of issues and ideas which continue to engage the church's energies today.Employing a basically chronological approach, Carl A. Volz traces the church's story beginning with Gregory the Great, who died in A.D. 604, and the dissolution of the Roman Empire in the West, through the high Middle Ages, and up to the eve of the modern era.Throughout The Medieval Church, Volz addresses topical issues such as ecclesiology, the sacraments, and the church in society. His work will help readers understand the historical events and forces which gave these issues their enduring importance.This volume is one of three introductory volumes on the history of the church. Each volume can be used separately or as part of a three-volume set to be used in a one- or two-semester course.

Why is it that one's concept of the medieval church has a direct bearing on one's attitude toward ecumenism? What were the methods and strategies used to evangelize Europe as Christianity moved out of its Mediterranean birthplace? Did the Roman Empire actually 'fall' or was it transformed? The Medieval Church: From the Dawn of the middle Ages to the Eve of the Reformation addresses these questions and many more that demonstrate the pervasive influence of the past on modern piety, practice, and beliefs.

Why does one's concept of the medieval church have a direct bearing on one's attitude toward ecumenism? How was Europe evangelized? Why is it essential to understand the different relationships of church-to-state between the West and Byzantium in order to understand the church's role in Eastern culture today? What common practices of public worship and personal piety have their roots in the medieval church? The Medieval Church: From the Dawn of the Middle Ages to the Eve of the Reformation addresses these questions and many more to demonstrate the pervasive influence of the past on modern piety, practice, and beliefs.For many years the Medieval period of church history has been ignored or denigrated as being the "dark ages," an attitude fostered by Enlightenment assumptions. Yet not only does this millennium provide a bridge to the early church, it created modern Europe and its nations, institutions, and the concept of Christendom as well. The Medieval Church, written in an easily accessible style, introduces the reader to the fascinating interplay of authority and dissent, the birth and development of doctrinal beliefs, the spirituality of the common person, and the enduring allure of Christian mysticism.The Medieval Church is a companion to The Early Church: Origins to the Dawn of the Middle Ages by E. Glenn Hinson and The Modern Church: From the Dawn of the Reformation to the Eve of the Third Millennium by Glenn Miller.
