Inquisition by Edward Peters ( Book )
18 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This impressive volume is actually three histories in one: of the legal procedures, personnel, and institutions that shaped the inquisitorial tribunals from Rome to early modern Europe of the myth of The Inquisition, from its origins with the anti-Hispanists and religious reformers of the sixteenth century to its embodiment in literary and artistic masterpieces of the nineteenth century and of how the myth itself became the foundation for a "history" of the inquisitions
Witchcraft in Europe, 1100-1700; a documentary history by Alan Charles Kors ( Book )
33 editions published between 1972 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This text contains highlights from such influential texts as the Malleus Maleficarum, a first-person account of witch accusations and torture, and various edicts from witch-hating popes. In addition, the black and white photographs of statuary, woodcuts, and paintings are very helpful
Christian society and the Crusades, 1198-1229; sources in translation, including The capture of Damietta by Oliver of Paderborn by Edward Peters ( Book )
11 editions published between 1971 and 1996 in English and held by 1,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the thirteenth century, the widespread conviction that the Christian lands in Syria and Palestine were of utmost importance to Christendom, and that their loss was a sure sign of God's displeasure with Christian society, pervaded nearly all levels of thought. Yet this same society faced other crises: religious dissent and unorthodox beliefs were proliferating in western Europe, and the powers exercised, or claimed, by the kings of Europe were growing rapidly. The sources presented here illustrate the rising criticism of the changing Crusade idea. They reflect a sharpened awareness among Europeans of themselves as a community of Christians and the slow beginnings of the secular culture and political organization of Europe

The First Crusade : the chronicle of Fulcher of Chartres and other source materials by Edward Peters ( Book )
18 editions published between 1971 and 2010 in English and held by 1,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the pontificate of Leo IX (1049-1054) to that of Urban II (1088-1099) the movement for ecclesiastical reform which had spread from small monastic centers in Italy, Burgundy, and Lorraine came to be directed by the popes themselves and thus began to focus upon the whole of the universal Church and Christendom. The result of the new universality of the ecclesiastical reform movement was the transformation of Christendom. Its most striking and complex by-product was the First Crusade. - Introduction

Europe and the Middle Ages by Edward Peters ( Book )
13 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The third edition of this comprehensive survey of early European history offers comprehensive coverage of fifteen centuries and incorporates the most important topics of recent research. In addition, the book offers extensive material on contemporary civilizations that in many ways parallel that of Europe, especially East Roman, or Byzantine civilization, and the civilization of Islam, as well as later contacts with the civilizations of Central and East Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and the Americas. The book's major themes are those of material civilization, political and social history, and the religious framework of cultural history in terms of both normative and "lived" religion. Its central theme is the creation of a distinctively European culture that took its place--in both creative and coercive ways--among other civilizations of the world
The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by Karen Louise Jolly ( Book )

"The roots of European witchcraft and magic lie in Hebrew and other ancient Near Eastern cultures and in the Celtic, Nordic, and Germanic traditions of the continent. For two millennia, European folklore and ritual have been imbued with the belief in the supernatural, yielding a rich trove of histories and images." "Witchcraft and Magic in Europe combines traditional approaches of political, legal, and social historians with a critical synthesis of cultural anthropology, historical psychology, and gender studies."--BOOK JACKET

The promised lands : the Low Countries under Burgundian rule, 1369-1530 by Willem Pieter Blockmans ( )
3 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
They were, in the words of one contemporary observer, "the Promised Lands." In all of Europe, only Northern Italy could rival the economic power and cultural wealth of the Low Countries in the later Middle Ages.<br /><br />In The Promised Lands , Wim Blockmans and Walter Prevenier trace the relations between the cultural and economic developments of the Low Countries and the political evolution of the region under the rule of the dukes of Burgundy. Combining political, diplomatic, administrative, economic, social, artistic, and cultural history, Blockmans and Prevenier have synthesized the most recent research on the subject-much of it their own-to produce the most accessible and authoritative book in English on the subject.<br /><br />This is an updated and revised translation of a classic work first published in 1988, now expanded and reoriented toward a broader international readership
