"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
