Publisher's Description

The Encyclopedia of Christian Civilization is a comprehensive reference work on the history and impact of Christianity. Over 1,400 entries provide an in-depth and dynamic look at Christianity both through its history and the way it has shaped societies around the world. Through a clear and attractive format, a series of interlocking major themes is explored, including: key theological ideas; global and regional history; worship; society and Christianity; literature; music; art; architecture; education; politics; law, and scholarship. Uniting these themes is an understanding of Christianity as a truly global phenomenon with strong denominational and regional identities.

The entries are written by a team of over 350 scholars and teachers from over 24 countries. Together they present a wealth of current research in a clear, concise, and attractive format. The Encyclopedia of Christian Civilization is an essential reference for students, researchers, academics, and practitioners.

Editorial Reviews

"It will remain a standard work for many decades and should be seriously considered for addition to any reference collection which covers religion, world history, literature or human social development."  (Reference Reviews, 27 April 2013)

"[A] magisterial and welcome four-volume set. It features 1,400-plus entries and provides a trove of valuable information in an extremely easy-to-use format. This work provides readers with an excellent place to start their research … Overall, the essays, from more than 350 contributors, are of excellent quality throughout. The breadth of the work is impressive; it is nicely laid out with a thematic list of contents … Included are articles on chronological history, geography, denominations, and biography. Interpretive essays delve substantially into key issues, events, places, concepts, and ideas that have driven Christianity over the centuries … Summing up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and general readers."CHOICE"The Encyclopedia of Christian Civilization is a core addition that is fundamental to any personal, professional, academic, or community library Christian Studies reference book collection."  Midwest Book Review
