Church, Faith and Culture in the Medieval West
European History
Erika Gaffney
Brenda Bolton, Anne Duggan and Damian Smith
Geografische scope:
The whole of Latin Christendom, paying special attention to those regions [Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and Southern Europe] which have hitherto been somewhat neglected.
Chronological scope:
Circa 500 to 1500 AD
Popes, cardinals, bishops, monks, canon law, church councils, religious life

The essential aim of this series is to present high quality, original, and international scholarship, covering all aspects of the Medieval Church and its relationship with the secular world in an accessible form. Previous publications have covered such topics as aspects of Medieval Papal History, including neglected twelfth- and thirteenth-century popes, Monastic and Religious Orders for men and women, Canon Law, Liturgy and Ceremonial, Art, Architecture and Material Culture, Ecclesiastical Administration and Government, as well as aspects of Clerical Life, Councils and so on. Our authors are encouraged to challenge existing orthodoxies on the basis of thorough examination of relevant sources. These books are intended to engage scholars worldwide.
