'Based on an impressive knowledge of the archives of the civic and religious institutions of Bruges, [Andrew Brown] sets out to describe the development of virtually every single ritual phenomenon he encountered in late medieval Bruges. Whenever possible he underpins his argumentation with quantitative data ... an invaluable tool for the study of (religious) rituals and events within the late medieval town.' Job Weststrate, Reviews in History (history.ac.uk/reviews)
'... a bracingly smart excavation of Bruges's ceremonial pulse, a study grounded in extensive, patient work in ecclesiastical and civic sources. Brown's study is impressive for its empiricism ... and for its theoretical familiarity with ritual as a scholarly field ... one of the finest considerations of medieval Bruges ... will be considered the standard work for decades to come.' Peter Arnade, Journal of Ecclesiastical History
