Now at last, we have a collection that casts a fresh and original eye on medieval Christianity, presenting a wide range of documentation on practice and piety from the eleventh to the sixteenth century. Wisely eschewing conventional boundaries between superstition, heresy, and orthodoxy, the editor includes evidence of witchcraft and protest as well as of earnest efforts to educate the pious. More than a book about religion as belief and debate, this is a book about religion as life.
