Review Quotes

“The Brill’s Companions to the Christian Tradition book series has made major contributions to the study of the history of Christianity for well over a decade now, presenting cutting-edge scholarship on a host of significant figures and movements over many centuries. This new e-book collection of Companions to Late Antiquity and Medieval Studies makes many of these valuable studies available to a wider audience and in a convenient format. It is a significant tool for scholars and students.”
Bernard McGinn, University of Chicago

“It is very helpful to have this scholarly resource on Late Antique and Medieval Studies available on line. The range of the Companions’ topics, from individuals such as Gregory I or Joachim of Fiore, institutions such as the Hanseatic League, or textual categories and themes such as preaching and audience is impressive. Each volume offers an immensely useful series of articles which contrive to be both authoritative surveys and independent interpretations.”
Rosamond McKitterick, University of Cambridge
