Title: Medieval Religion
Authors: Hoffman Berman, Constance
Keywords: Religion
Issue Date: 2005
Publisher: Routledge
Description: The history of the late medieval Church once focused on papal and male initiatives and ignored or downplayed the contribution of lower levels of the priesthood and women. This collection restores individual initiative by men and women at all levels, and shows the way that, despite the efforts of the clergy to establish hierarchical privilege, women in particular played an active role in medieval religion. Furthermore, papal and clerical efforts to establish adherence to their own vision of Christianity had a negative impact on those outside the faith, especially on Jews and Muslims. Berman’s volume highlights these effects, which too have been overlooked or treated in isolation. New research included in this volume has provided the material to solidify these new interpretations
