The Medieval church: from the dawn of the Middle Ages to the eve of the Reformation
This introduction to the history of Christianity during the medieval period brings the student's attention to the historical background of issues and ideas which continue to engage the church's energies today.
Employing a basically chronological approach, Carl A. Volz traces the church's story beginning with Gregory the Great, who died in A.D. 604, and the dissolution of the Roman Empire in the West, through the high Middle Ages, and up to the eve of the modern era.
Throughout The Medieval Church, Volz addresses topical issues such as ecclesiology, the sacraments, and the church in society. His work will help readers understand the historical events and forces which gave these issues their enduring importance.
This volume is one of three introductory volumes on the history of the church. Each volume can be used separately or as part of a three-volume set to be used in a one- or two-semester course.
