9780192803368: The Oxford History of Christianity

Spanning two thousand years of stirring religious, cultural and political events, this authoritative volume provides the most accessible history of Christianity ever published for the general reader.
The impact of Christianity on world civilization is almost incalculable, and in exploring this rich heritage, nineteen leading scholars range from the earliest origins to the present day to examine virtually every aspect of the faith. They discuss the apostle Peter and Roman Emperor Constantine, describe the role of Charlemagne in the expansion of the religion, and assess medieval scholasticism and the influence of Thomas Aquinas. The profound changes that occurred during both the Reformation and the Enlightenment are fully treated in chapters that offer revealing portraits of such key figures as Erasmus, Luther, Calvin, Wesley, and Rousseau. The book explores the faith as practiced in Britain and Europe, North and South America, Africa, India, and the Far East--offering a compelling continuous narrative filled with insight into the enormously diverse Christian world.
Comprehensive, vividly narrated, and exquisitely produced, this magnificent book captures the richness and vitality of Christian thought and culture throughout the ages.

About the Author:


John McManners is a Fellow of All Souls College, and Regius Professor Emeritus of Ecclesiastical History at the University of Oxford. He has written extensively on French and European history. His fifth book, Death and the Enlightenment (OUP, 1981), was awarded the Wolfson Literary Prize for History, and was one of The Times ten best non-fiction books of the year.

Review:

`Review from previous edition full of wise insights, balance of information, reliable scholarship and precision of writing'
Times Literary Supplement

`I know of no other book on this subject which is so wide Nn coverage and penetration.''
Financial Times

`An extensive and partly annotated list of further reading will be very helpful to the reader who wants to go beyond a one chapter account of two or three medieval centuries, or of a whole continent in later times.'
David J. Hall, The Friend
