...the fruit of a life's work. Francis Oakley, who has studied the subject for over forty years, here presents a synthesis by dealing sequentially with contested issues. * Robert E. Lerner, Times Literary Supplement *
This elegant and vividly written book is never jargon-ridden or obscure; it is closley argued, and makes demands on its readers. It is also hugely important, a model of service the church historian has to offer the church. * Eamon Duffy, Commonwealth *
The mastery shown of both primary sources and secondary literature is exceptional. The book is likely to remainthe point of departure for studies in the field for many years to come. * The Journal of Theological Studies *
The ideas discussed in this book are old, but of enormous contemporary relevance. * The Church Times *
