From the Publisher'High Way to Heaven will become mandatory reading for scholars of late medieval and early modern intellectual and religious history. As indeed it should.'
John M. Frymire, Renaissance Quarterly, 2005.
'The book does make overarching archuments, but the whole is not crucially important for an understanding of the parts. Readers interested in particular themes, such as catechesis, devotion to Passion, Apocalyse commentaries, dissemination of theology, or the roots of the Lutheran Reformation, should take note that there are shorter books within this longer one that would repay their attention.'
Richard Kieckheffer, Speculum, 2005.
'Saak's study is a work of immense historical learning and essential reading for anyone interested in late medieval religion. It is also methodologically sophisticated, moving almost effortlessly from straightforward historical narrative, to social historical analysis, to the history of theology and back again.'
Mickey L. Mattox, Theological Studies (2004) 65: 2
