Product Description

The Revised edition of The Rise of Western Christendom: Triumph and Diversity, A.D. 200-1000 by celebrated scholar and historian Peter Brown is a critical text ideal for learning about this understudied era and is a flagship volume in Blackwell-Wiley's The Making of Europe series.

Including a new Preface by the author covering recent developments in the study of the first millennia of Christendom, a revision of some previous stances, a refreshed and up-to-date bibliography, and 17 stunning color images, this text remains an essential and superbly compelling history of Christianity's evolution in its tumultuous first millennium.

Brown charts the rise to prominence of a religion that began as an obscure sect in Roman Judea and developed into Europe's dominant--religious and political--institution. Christianity played a pivotal role in the making of Europe, as well as the delineation of its boundaries; the political gulf between Europe and its Eastern neighbors was also a religious divide. The Rise of Western Christendom offers students of religious history unmatched depth of analysis by the leading academic authority of the period.

This book remains a classic, easily the most fascinating introduction to the field for anyone new to it, and also capable of forcing experts into taking on new ideas; a summation of Peter Brown's mould breaking work.
-Chris Wickham

Interpretations of late antiquity and of western Christendom have changed dramatically in the last decade. This anniversary edition explains the changes with Peter Brown's characteristic brilliance and range of learning.
