Religious Movements in the Middle Ages

Religious Movements in the Middle Ages

Herbert Grundmann
Translated by Steven Rowan

Medievalists, historians, and women’s studies specialists will welcome this translation of Herbert Grundmann’s classic study of religious movements in the Middle Ages because it provides a much-needed history of medieval religious life—one that lies between the extremes of doctrinal classification and materialistic analysis—and because it represents the first major effort to underline the importance of women in the development of the language and practice of religion in the Middle Ages.

“This translation makes available to the English-speaking world one of the greatest works of German historical scholarship from the twentieth century and one of the greatest works of medieval history ever written. Sixty years after its original publication, Religious Movements in the Middle Ages remains not only learned and powerful, but innovative—even radical—as well.” — Caroline Walker Bynum

“With the publication of Religious Movements in the Middle Ages sixty years ago, Herbert Grundmann set the conceptual framework for the historical study of several significant topics, including the origins of medieval heresy, the pastoral care of women, the rise of vernacular literature, and the origins of the friars. For two generations every scholar working on those topics has been influenced directly or indirectly by Grundmann’s masterful work.” — Joseph H. Lynch, Ohio State University
