Demonstrates very effectively the ways in which military metaphors were employed to describe spiritual struggles, and provides many insights into the monastic mind. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW

This important book is a welcome addition to the recent literature on the relations between medieval church and society. THE CATHOLIC HISTORICAL REVIEW
Skilfully demonstrates that martial imagery was a major force in the creation of monastic culture. [...] Truly a remarkable achievement. Highly recommended. CHOICE
