“These Companions are go-to resources for teaching and research: they gather the latest scholarship on a huge range of authors, themes, and places in medieval and early modern Europe. The electronic format works equally well for reading specific articles, for browsing, and for searching the volumes together in one go. They are especially powerful as a set.” - Ann Blair, Harvard University
“The Brill Companions have already established themselves as the ‘go to’ resource for students and academics who are looking not only for informed evaluation of the latest research as well as indications of the most up-to-date literature on a particular theme and topic, but also for the stimulus to re-evaluate their significance. Collectively they offer both encyclopaedic breadth as well as interpretative depth of treatment.” - Simon Ditchfield, University of York
“The Brill Companions offer sure-footed guides to key issues in Christian and European history, useful for newcomers to a topic and for anyone seeking insights into recent research. Conceptualized and written by the leading scholars in a field, they are indispensable sources of information on fundamental issues and debates.” - Merry Wiesner-Hanks, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
