In Sword, Miter, and Cloister, Constance Brittain Bouchard provides a fresh perspective on social and ecclesiastical life in the High Middle Ages. Drawing on a vast range of primary sources, she reveals the surprisingly close relationship between the nobility and reformed monasteries in Burgundy. By focusing on a region considered to be the heart of aristocratic and monastic Europe during this era, Bouchard is able to develop themes and reach conclusions that can be applied to much of Europe.

Review:

"Sword, Miter, and Cloister is an exemplary piece of scholarship. The work is beautifully presented: good maps, index, bibliography. Noteworthy is Bouchard's care to include wives and daughters in the genealogical notes; this makes the work especially useful as a reference for questions of Burgundian genealogy."―American Historical Review
