Christianity in Western Europe c. 1100-c. 1500 ( Book )
16 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Looks at the complex and varied Christian cultures developed in Europe during the early middle ages and how from about 1100 secular rulers, competing factions and inspired individuals continued to engender a diverse and ever-changing mix within Christian society. Explores the wide range of institutions, practices and experiences associated with the life of European Christians in the later middle ages. Shows how the clergy of this period initiated new approaches to the role of priests, bishops and popes, and developed an ambitious project to instruct the laity. Looks at the religious life of lay people where the practices of parish religion were central, but many sought additional ways to enrich their lives as Christians. Examines how impulses towards reform and renewal periodically swept across Europe, led by charismatic preachers and supported by secular rulers

The Cambridge history of Christianity ( Book )
in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This series offers a comprehensive chronological account of the development of Christianity in all its aspects theological, intellectual, social, political, regional, global from its beginnings to the present day. Each volume makes a substantial contribution in its own right to the scholarship of its period and the complete History constitutes a major work of academic reference. Far from being merely a history of Western European Christianity and its offshoots, the History aims to provide a global perspective. Eastern and Coptic Christianity are given full consideration from the early period onwards, and later, African, Far Eastern, New World, South Asian and other non-European developments in Christianity receive proper coverage. The volumes cover popular piety and non-formal expressions of Christian faith and treat the sociology of Christian formation, worship and devotion in a broad cultural context. The question of relations between Christianity and other major faiths is also kept in sight throughout. - Publisher
