The history of the Western church in the Middle Ages is the history of the most elaborate and thoroughly integrated system of religious thought and practice the world has ever known. It is also the history of European society during eight hundred years of sometimes rapid change. This authoritative history shows how the concept of an organized human society, both religious and secular, as an expression of a divinely ordered universe, was central to medieval thought.

The concept of an ordered human society, both religious and secular, as an expression of a divinely ordered universe was central to medieval thought. In the West the political and religious community were inextricably bound together, and because the Church was so intimately involved with the world, any history of it must take into account the development of medieval society.
Professor Southern's book covers the period from the eighth to the sixteenth century. After sketching the main features of each medieval age, he deals in greater detail with the Papacy, the relations between Rome and her rival Constantinople, the bishops and archbishops, and the various religious orders, providing in all a superb history of the period.

In the late fourteenth century religious men had some shattering paradoxes and failures before their eyes. The Benedcitines had retreated from the world, and had become great centres of government and institutions of social cohesion. The Cistercians had gone into the wilderness, and had become the greatest organizers of economic forces before the Fuggers and Medicis. The Franciscans had dedicated their lives to poverty, and were comfortably installed in every large town in Europe. In all this, effective religion(so it seemed) was lost in superficiality.

Dr. Southern's work affected me, it spawned an almost Pauline conversion. No, I haven't embraced the faith, but I felt my thoughts change. A shift was endeavored. Covering a thousand years in a mere 360 pages remains daunting if not impossible. That said, I tended to agree with the learned medievalist when he opines the significance of the church at such a monumental time in European history. What would've been the result if the church had failed? What other institutions could've kept the wolves of the time from the everyman's door?

The book begins with the differences between the Rome and Constantinople and all their doctrinal baggage. He then proceed to traverse the history of the papacy and follows with other offices of the church and concludes with a history of the myriad Orders and their consequent effect on the development of the West. The book is rife with anecdotes and more than a few charts and graphs. It also succeeded in altering the opinion of this crusty agnostic. ( )

L'EGLISE ET LA SOCIÉTÉ DANS L'OCCIDENT MÉDIÉVAL

Retracer l'histoire de l'Eglise au Moyen Age, c'est aussi
retracer l'histoire de la société européenne: de 700 à 1500
environ, huit siècles de changements virent s'ébaucher
institutions et habitudes de pensée.

L'Eglise du Moyen Age fut l'Etat dans la plénitude de ses
pouvoirs tel que, parmi ses prophètes modernes, Hegel lui-
même l'avait à peine entrevu. L'Eglise et la société étaient,
en effet, si intimement liées que l'une ne pouvait changer
sans que l'autre ne subit une transformation similaire
L'auteur analyse les mécanismes sociaux de l'évolution reli-
gieuse en examinant notamment la papauté, les relations
entre Rome et Byzance, le statut des évêques, enfin, les dif-
férents ordres religieux, des bénédictins aux dominicains et
aux franciscains.

On trouvera ici l'histoire de la naissance et du déclin de
l'un des grands idéaux de l'Occident: l'idée d'une société
humaine universelle - la societas perfecta- partie intégrante
d'un univers ordonné par Dieu dans le temps comme dans
l'éternité, dans la politique concrète comme dans le monde
des essences spirituelles.

Richard William Southern, auteur de nombreus ouvrages sur la
Moyen Age, est né à Newcastle en 1912. Président de la Royal
Historical Society, il a toujours enseigné à Oxford.

Covering a lengthy period of time necessitates focus on Europe & its reaction to the growth of Islam & the growing tension between rulers & the popes. A fair assessment though light on the Orthodox branch ( )
