9780882957616: History of Medieval Christianity

This volume, a general history of the Church in the Middle Ages, pays close attention to the spiritual, intellectual, and institutional aspects of medieval Christianity. The author's central theme is the tension between the two forces within the Church - the spirit of order and the spirit of prophecy. The spirit of order attempts to reform man and his institutions; the spirit of prophecy attempts to transform them into the world of God. Mr. Russell suggests that this tension created a balance within the Church that kept it from forgetting the nature of basic religious experience while continuing to remain sensitive to the needs of society. No study of medieval history would be complete without a consideration of the role of the Church in medieval life; students using this book will find it eminently suited to this purpose.
