The Cambridge History of Christianity: Volume 4, Christianity in Western Europe, c.1100-c.1500, Hardback Book

The Cambridge History of Christianity: Volume 4, Christianity in Western Europe, c.1100-c.1500 Hardback

Edited by Miri Rubin, Walter Simons

Part of the Cambridge History of Christianity series

Description

During the early middle ages, Europe developed complex and varied Christian cultures, and from about 1100 secular rulers, competing factions and inspired individuals continued to engender a diverse and ever-changing mix within Christian society.

This volume explores the wide range of institutions, practices and experiences associated with the life of European Christians in the later middle ages.

The clergy of this period initiated new approaches to the role of priests, bishops and popes, and developed an ambitious project to instruct the laity.

For lay people, the practices of parish religion were central, but many sought additional ways to enrich their lives as Christians.

Impulses towards reform and renewal periodically swept across Europe, led by charismatic preachers and supported by secular rulers.

This book provides accessible accounts of these complex historical processes and entices the reader towards further enquiry.
