Reviews

"[There is an] abundance of information and insight to be found in Religion, Politics and Society in Britain. It deserves wide use. If other historians took it as a model for their books, the world would benefit. It ought to be a textbook for decades to come, going through many reprints."

Andrew Breeze, University of Navarre-Pamplona

"In this superb penultimate volume in the publisher's "Religion, Politics and Society in Britain" series, Redgate develops the interconnections among Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, and Scandinavian societies and between source bases (archaeological, art historical, landscape, and literary and material culture) with an eye "to demonstrate the centrality of Christianity and the Church to Britain, 800-1066." She provides coherent yet thick surveys of the fundamental restructuring of this era's politics, society, and economy while also integrating the central role of religion to demonstrate Christianity's pervasive impact on belief, thought, and behavior at all levels of society. Summing Up: Highly recommended"

J.P. Huffman, Messiah College in Choice

"Anne Redgate of Newcastle upon Tyne offers something refreshing...material and perceptions absent from previous histories of faith in Britain, and as such is welcome. It deserves wide use. If other historians took it as a model for their books, the world would benefit. It ought to be a textbook for decades to come, going through many reprints."

Andrew Breeze, University of Navarre-Pamplona
