What People are Saying About This

Michael Frassetto

An excellent introduction to a critical period in the history of medieval Europe and the church. Mullins provides a well-balanced and sympathetic treatment of popes often denigrated for their lack of piety. (Michael Frassetto, author, The Great Medieval Heretics)

Ross King

Describes one of the most remarkable episodes in the history of the Middle Ages. . . . This is history made thoroughly evocative and engaging. (Ross King, author, Brunelleschi's Dome)

Thomas Bokenkotter

Should be welcomed by all interested in this pivotal period. (Thomas Bokenkotter, author, A Concise History of the Catholic Church)
