Review:

Many Mansions provides an informative introduction to the development and diversity of Medieval Christian theology. Many Mansions presents an overview of how religious thinking developed in the thousand years between the end of the Roman Empire and the Reformation. Unlike other volumes, Many Mansions also looks at developments in both the Latin West (Roman Catholic) and the Greek East (Orthodox) belief systems. In addition to providing an introduction for readers with no background in theology or history, Many Mansions points out the reasons behind the growing divergence between the two great halves of Christendom. Many Mansions is ideal for the interested non-specialist general reader as well as the beginning student of Christian history, and has much to recommend it to the advanced scholars, theologians, and the academic community. -- Midwest Book Review
