MEDIA REVIEWS
"Ranft's" The Theology of Work" is innovative in relation to both theological discussions of work and current discussions of labor in medieval cultural history. It brings to the table a valuable consideration of the deep history of labor in the world of medieval monasticism. Moreover, it pushes this investigation back to an era earlier than is often considered, and adds a detailed meditation on the influence of Peter Damian. Ranft's study should serve as a useful reminder of the range and complexity of medieval debates concerning the category of labor in both religious and lay contexts." -- Ethan Knapp, Ohio State University
