Overview

There have been many books about bishops and kings, clerics and theologians, but what do we know about the Christian life of "ordinary" people across the last 2,000 years of Christian history? Very littleuntil now! Using newly developed research methods, over 100 scholars uncover the neglected side of church history as they lay bare the religious ideas and consciousness of "the people" - their assumptions, beliefs, values, habits, longings, terrors, anxieties, and comforts. This is history "from below" and the revelations in insights are fascinating. Each volume includes 10-12 essays by leading experts in the field about the lives of ordinary Christian women and men of the time. Included in each volume are over three dozen graphics and maps, an eight-page color gallery, as well as extensive bibliographies.
