|The two centuries covered in this volume were among the most creative in the history of the Church; its influence on the growth of western society was more profound than perhaps at any other time. This period saw the emergence of much that is considered characteristic of European culture and religion, including universities and commercial cities, the crusades, the inquisition, papal government, the college of cardinals, canon law, the friars, the confessional, chivalry, hospitals,and marriage in its `western'' form, as well as great cathedrals, fine village churches, and a new Christian folklore. In all these developments the Roman Church and the bishops were involved, and in some they were even the initiators. Today''s generation has seen the dissolution of Christendom in itsold form, and it is particularly well placed to re-evaluate the building up of a Christian society between 1050 and 1250. - ;I: The Papal Reform Movement and the Conflict with the Empire (c. 1046-1122): Christian Society in the Middle of the Eleventh Century; The Pattern of Social Change; Monastic Growth and Change; The Papal Reform (1046-1073); The Discord of Empire and Papacy (1073-1099); Greeks and Saracens; The Conflict Renewed: The Question of Investiture (1099-1122); II: The Growth of Christendom: The Roman Church and the Empire in the Twelfth Century; TheGovernment of the Church in the Twelfth Century; The New Monastic Orders; The Christian Frontier; The Message of the Churches; Christianity and Social Ideas; Dissent; The Formulation of Faith; Property, Privilege, and Law; III: The Thirteenth Century: The Pontificate of Innocent III (1198-1216); Friars, Beguines, and the ActionAgainst Heresy; Proclaiming the Faith; Reason and Hope in a Changing World; The Structure of Government; The Roman Church and the Lay Power in the Thirteenth Century; Conclusions. - ;''Professor Morris has written a massively impressive book. It is difficult to know what to praise first: its comprehensive coverage, its masterful synthesis, its relentless good sense, or its felicitous prose. Colin Morris has written a superb book that will for a very long time dominate teaching and thinking about the church in the high Middle Ages.''Times Higher Education Supplement - ;''outstandingly successful ... a masterpiece of compression ... although there is much delightful writing, much apt quotation, much helpful explanation and some ample narrative, so much is kept in view that there is no sense of waste or unbalance ... a major work of scholarship ... This is a very refreshing and rewarding book, and a splendid addition to a noble series.''C.N.L. Brooke, Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge, EHR July ''90 - ;''Professor Morris sets out to given an account of the religious history of the Latin west ... he has done so comprehensively, and with a magnificent deployment of historical scholarship and literary skill ... The book is superbly organized, and as one expects from its author it is a model of lucidity ... a thought-provoking as well as a comprehensively informative survey. It triumphantly succeeds in satisfying the needs of the expert, the student and the general reader; may itsoon be made available at a less formidable price.''H.E.J.
