This delightful book recreates the busy, colorful world of a Catholic bishop and his flock from 1590-1620. Based upon the recently discovered daybook of Mathias Hovius, the book focuses not only on his life but also on key events and characters of the period -- experiences of monks, nuns, pilgrims, peasants, saints, and others.
