"Liturgy and Society in Early Medieval Rome is a fine study that brings to light some important liturgical sources in a way that enriches our understanding of liturgy's dynamic function in society." Yitzhak Hen, American Historical Review
'John F. Romano has provided an excellent resource for those interested in early medieval Church history and Church history in general, and on how the life of the Church permeated both the clerical and the secular societies.' Hortulus
'John Romano has managed to produce a rigorous and engaging monograph that successfully broadens our understanding of the early history of the papacy and its liturgical activity. Through his meticulous research, Romano shows how the liturgy functioned to shape public perceptions of the papal court and how it helped to negotiate the power of the papacy in Roman society. ... Serious students of the early Roman liturgy and the early history of the papacy will find this monograph to be an essential starting point for their own research.' Medieval Review
