“One of the best books of its kind ever printed—surely destined to become a standard source for historians of religion.”
New Oxford Review

,

“By helping us to recover the sources of Western spirituality, this volume and its companions provide material for the reform of contemporary intellectual life.”
Parabola

,

“This book combines remarkably strong scholarship with sympathetic insight into Christian religious life from 1150 to 1600 . . . By focusing on spirituality rather than doctrine, it also broadens the scope of religious inquiry to embrace the popular as well as the academic, the devotional as well as the conceptual, and women’s experience as well as men’s. In short, this volume challenges us to rethink our positions within a richly varied yet common tradition.”
