"Conceptually well organized, stylistically clear, intellectually thoughtful, and pedagogically useful." - Thomas Head, Speculum "For its humane and learned approach to its enormous canvas, as well as for the cogency with which it penetrates at speed to the essentials of a vanished historical epoch, this History of the Church in the Middle Ages deserves a very wide audience indeed." - Barrie Dobson, English Historical Review "To have written a scholarly and very readable history of the Western Church over a millennium is a remarkable tour de force, for which Donald Logan is to be warmly congratulated." - C.H Lawrence, The Tablet "A feat of historical synthesis, most confident in its telling of the coming of Christianity. Books like Logan's are needed more than ever before." - Miri Rubin, TLS In this fascinating survey, F. Donald Logan introduces the reader to the Christian church, from the conversion of the Celtic and Germanic peoples to the discovery of the New World. He reveals how the church unified the people of Western Europe as they worshipped with the same ceremonies and used Latin as the language of civilized communication. From remote, rural parish to magnificent urban cathedral, A History of the Church in the Middle Ages explores the role of the church as a central element in determining a thousand years of history. This new edition brings the book right up to date with recent scholarship, and includes an expanded introduction exploring the interaction of other faiths - particularly Judaism and Islam - with the Christian church.… (mere)

Excellent overview of the Church in the medieval era. Deducted a star for being a little too dry and textbookish. ( )

F. Donald Logan's A History of the Church in the Middle Ages runs from the Roman period through to 1492, mostly dealing with the papacy and other aspects of the institutional church but also addressing issues such as lay beliefs and practices and religious architecture. It's a little dry and at points Logan is prone to overly complicated sentences but I think it could serve as a useful textbook for an undergraduate survey course. I did catch one or two minor errors, however, and rolled my eyes at the digs at feminist historians—in a section on Hildegard of Bingen, no less! ( )

Medieval here means from 500 to 1500. The author tries to balance the history of the church as a political and religious institution with the history of individual religious feeling and piety in so far as that is knowable or recoverable by the historian.

It is a very readable account marred by poor proof reading and editing in places (letters and words missing or whole clauses and sentences repeated on the same page or nearby pages). ( )

This carefully organized and easy-to-read history would make a fantastic text for an undergraduate survey course, a useful resource for grad students and teachers, and a good read for anyone even remotely interested in medieval Europe and Christian history.

Particularly engaging for a general audience are the author's treatment of the Crusades (particularly the first; it's a shame that only the first and fourth are covered in any depth, but perhaps this would've stretched beyond the book's intended scope?) and Chapter 9, in which the reader is treated to highly informative and also highly entertaining "profiles" of a few famous 12th century figures: Abelard and Heloise, Thomas Becket, and Hildegard von Bingen.

Logan weaves in references to trade and economics, politics, literature and art, as well as emphasizing 'church history' proper (doctrines, orders, etc.)

The result makes for a cohesive narrative... and yet, thankfully, Logan also reminds the reader from time to time that the job of the historian or student of history isn't just to seek out and enjoy an objective, linear, cohesive reading of 'facts' and indisputable documents, but to ask questions. (And so, where the facts at hand leave contradictions and unknowns, Logan openly points that out too. I, for one, really appreciate a scholar who'll do that.)

I had not read anything by Logan prior, but will do so happily if I come across his work again.
