Lordship and Faith takes as its subject the many hundreds of parish churches built in England in the Middle Ages by the gentry, the knights and esquires, and the lords of country manors. Nigel Saul uses lordly engagement with the parish church as a way of opening up the piety and sociability of the gentry, focusing on the gentry as founders and builders of churches, worshippers in them, holders of church advowsons, and patrons and sponsors of parish communities. Saul also looks at how the gentry's interest in the parish church sat alongside their patronage of the monks and friars, and their use of private chapels in their manor houses. Lordship and Faith seeks to weave together themes in social, religious, and architectural history, examining in all its richness a subject that has hitherto been considered only in journal articles. Written in an accessible way, this volume makes a significant contribution not only to the history of the English gentry but also to the history of the rural parish church, an institution now in the forefront of medieval historical studies.

About the Author:


Nigel Saul has recently retired after teaching medieval history for thirty-seven years at Royal Holloway, University of London, and is currently Emeritus Professor there. From 1995 to 2002 he was President of the Monumental Brass Society. In 2013 he was historical adviser to the BBC4 series 'Chivalry and Betrayal', about the Hundred Years War. He is a Fellow of the Historical Association and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London.

Review:


"[A] book which is fundamentally trail-blazing, decidedly stimulating, offers much, and is definitely welcome. It reflects a truly ambitious and challenging project, one which perhaps only Nigel Saul could tackle over such a broad canvas, and with such deft expertise."--Robert Swanson, Reviews in History


"[A] masterful account of the relationship between the English gentry and the parish church from the Norman Conquest to the early 16th century....Essential."--CHOICE
