International, multi-national and yet intimately local, the Church was the central institution of the European Middle Ages, and the foundation of medieval life. No aspect of the medieval world, or the medieval world-view was untouched by its influence. Joseph H. Lynch's survey explains both the history of the Church as an institution, and explores its all-pervasive role in medieval life. No previous knowledge is assumed. It is primarily for students of medieval European history, but also students of religion and ecclesiastical history, and people actively interested in church affairs (whatever their denomination), whether in theological colleges, seminaries or in society at large.
