A Spanish saga of heretics, witches and saints ... MenÚndez Pelayo, Spain's leading intellectual figure in the 19th century, tells the glorious tale of how Spain's Catholicism heroically survived all attemps against her; and in beautiful prose too, here rendered into English for the first time. The present volume deals with the challenges early Christianity faced in Spain prior to the Middle Ages. Books 2 and 3(in preparation) bring the history up to the eve of the Reformation. The author's introduction to the first edition ends with a prayer: "May God give me the light of understanding and a humble firmness of will; may He steer and guide my pen to narrate without anger or bias the sad history of error among our peninsular people! May He grant that this history may foster enlightenment and benefit, not scandal, to Christians everywhere." Few books of ecclesiastical history make for such a gripping read.

About the Author:

The Catholic writer hailed as the greatest prose stylist in post Golden Age Spain - and a church historian to more than rival Henri Daniel-Rops, Regine Pernoud, Jack Scarisbrick, Eamon Duffy and other greats of recent 'revisionist' scholarship - has never had his magnum opus on the trials of the Faith in Spain made available to the English-speaking world. Now, over a century after its first publication in Spanish, Saint Austin Press is delighted to introduce English-speaking scholars to this astonishingly comprehensive history of Christian Spain, from the point of view of the numerous different challenges faced by orthodoxy from Roman times until the modern age. The first volume traces Spanish heterodoxy until the Middle Ages. Books Two and Three (in preparation) will bring the history up to the dawn of the Reformation. Every page of MenÚndez y Pelayo's writings reveals a wealth of strong common sense, clear perception, and a vein of wonderful and ever varying erudition. Thoroughly Catholic in spirit, he found his greatest delight, he declared, in devoting all his work to the glory of God and the exaltation of the name of Jesus.
