The Ages of Faith: Popular Religion in Late Medieval England and Western Europe

The Ages of Faith: Popular Religion in Late Medieval England and Western Europe by Norman Tanner
English | 2009-01-20 | ISBN: 1845117603 | PDF | 288 pages | 3,7 MB

Christianity in the later Middle Ages was flourishing, popular and vibrant and the institutional church was generally popular--in stark contrast to the picture of corruption and decline painted by the later Reformers which persists even today.
Norman Tanner, the pre-eminent historian of the later medieval church, provides a rich and authoritative history of religion in this pivotal period. Despite signs of turbulence and demands for reform, he demonstrates that the church remained powerful, self-confident and deeply rooted. Weaving together key themes of religious history--the Christian roots of Europe; the crusades; the problematic question of the Inquisition; the relationship between the church and secular state; the central role of monasticism; and the independence of the English church--The Ages of Faith is an impressive tribute to a lifetime's research into this subject. But to many readers the central fascination of The Ages of Faith will be its perceptive insights into popular and individual spiritual experience: sin, piety, penance, heresy, the role of the mystics and even "making merry."
The Ages of Faith is a major contribution to the Reformation debate and offers a revealing vision of individual and popular religion in an important period so long obscured by the drama of the Reformation.
