    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    The debate over clerical celibacy and marriage had its origins in the early Christian centuries, and is still very much alive in the modern church.

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Founded to support Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land and most famous for their support for crusading, the Military Religious Orders' activities and interests stretched far beyond the frontiers of Christendom.

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Ansgar and Rimbert, ninth-century bishops and missionaries to Denmark and Sweden, are fixtures of medieval ecclesiastical history.

But Ansgar and Rimbert were also clever forgers who... more...

    The Emperor John II Komnenos (1118?1143) has been overshadowed by both his father Alexios I and his son Manuel I. Written sources have not left us much evidence regarding his reign, although authors agree that he was an excellent emperor. However, the period witnessed territorial expansion in Asia Minor as well as the construction of the most important... more...

  • Medieval Mercenariesby William Urban

    Frontline Books 2015; US$ 11.68

    The Middle Ages were a turbulent and violent time, when the fate of nations was most often decided on the battlefield, and strength of arms was key to acquiring and maintaining power. Feudal oaths and local militias were more often than not incapable of providing the skilled and disciplined warriors necessary to keep the enemy at bay. It was the mercenary... more...

    University of Toronto Press, Scholarly Publishing Division 2008; US$ 77.00
