"This is an extremely valuable volume, a must for every library; perhaps the paperback will be priced within the reach of at least some individuals." (The Heythrop Journal, 14 April 2015)"Of note is the indispensable list of primary sources and a prodigious bibliography of secondary texts. These alone probably justify the purchase price."
