Have you ever wanted accessible introductions to the key figures and periods of Christian history? Faith in the Byzantine World For many people the Byzantine world is an intriguing mystery. Here, Mary Cunningham presents readers with an ideal guide to this most fascinating of empires, helping readers to understand the central role of Christianity in its development. Covering the period between 330 and 1453, the author begins by providing an outline of the history of the Byzantine Church, and then looks at key aspects of its outward expression, including the solitary ideal; holy places and holy people; service to the community; the nature of belief; and art, architecture and icons. This account is an excellent introduction for all those seeking to appreciate the history and sheer otherness of the 'Byzantine' era. Faith in the Medieval World The medieval period constituted a turbulent stage in religious history. Gillian R. Evans begins her immersive account by providing an overview of the development of Christianity in the West in the Middle Ages, before looking at key aspects of medieval faith: the Bible and belief; popular piety and devotion; the Crusades and the idea of 'holy war'; politics and the Church; rebellion against authority; and the road to Reformation. Drawing heavily on the central figures involved - such as Gregory the Great,John Wyclif, Peter Abelard, Dante Alighieri and Bernard of Clairvaux- this analysis is a must for all those keen to understand one of the most enthralling periods of history.
