Cornell University Press, 1993 - History - 216 pages
0 Reviews

In this provocative account, Maureen Miller challenges traditional explanations of the process that changed the nature of religious institutions--and religious life itself--in the diocese of Verona during the early and central Middle Ages. Building on substantial archival research, she shows how demographic expansion, economic development, and political change helped transform religious ideals and ecclesiastical institutions into a recognizably "medieval" church.
