Religious experience in the European Middle Ages represented an intersection of a range of aspects of existence, including everyday life, relations of power, and urban development, among others. As such, religion offered a reflection of many facets of life in this period. This book brings together scholars from different parts of the world who use a variety of different examples from the medieval era to show this specific path through which to reach a renewed perspective for understanding the European Middle Ages.
