Editorial Reviews

History
The author's vast learning is evident on almost every page and the book confirms Brown's status as one of the leading scholars of the early Christian world.
Library Journal
This is not a history of the Christian church but rather "an attempt to study late antique and early medieval Christianity as it encountered and adjusted to changing situations in changing environments." The period covered is from the conversion of Constantine in 312 to the adoption of Christianity in Iceland in 1000, by which time a Western civilization distinctly different from the East had emerged.
Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
The Economist Review
Under the directorship of a French historian, Jacques Le Goff, the publishers have achieved something refreshing and unpredictable.
Times Literary Supplement
Very distinct in detail and presentation.
