Publisher's Description

"It seems to me far and away the most comprehensive survey of the origins and development of Marian theology and spirituality, at least up to the late Middle Ages, in both East and West. It is beautifully organized and developed, and the abundance of primary texts ... makes it particularly helpful. It goes] far beyond both Hilda Graef's excellent earlier history of Marian doctrine, and Georg Soll's fascicle in the "Handbuch der Dogmengeschichte."" (Brian E. Daley, Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame)
