The authors, all leading scholars in their fields, have interpreted Christianity in its widest sense, emphasizing its social and cultural impact and exploring the religious life of ordinary people as well as the rituals of cardinals and kings. The book's copious illustrations form an integral part of the story and bring much that seems remote or obscure into vivid focus. Anyone seeking to understand the forces that have made our world what it is today will find this book of vital interest.

Carter, Owen Chadwick, Adrian Cunningham, William H. C. Frend, Joachim Gaehde, Hans Hillerbrand, Judith Hook, Colin Morris, Steven Runciman, Ian N. Wood, and J. William T. Youngs.
