About "Faith in the Medieval World (Lion Histories Series)"

- Koorong

Drawing heavily on the central figures involved in the development of Christianity in the West in the Middle Ages, such as Gregory the Great, John Wyclif, Peter Abelard, Dante Alighieri and Bernard of Clairvaux, this text paints a picture of a turbulent stage of religious history. The author begins by giving an overview of its development, before looking at the key aspects of medieval faith* the Bible and belief; popular piety and devotion; the Crusades and the idea of holy war; politics and the church; rebellion against authority; and the road to Reformation.

Really worth having on your shelf, after you have read it!
4 stars By John C. Douglas, Jan 18 2009
This book is an exceptionally well achieved picture of the medieval world, its key persons, influences and the nature of the breath of Christian faith in the period.  The work gives enough to expand or re-form understandings; an excellent "first reader/pocket dictionary".  Buy it, read it, share it, don't give it away - keep it in arms reach as a reference tool.
