"The best survey now available, more detailed and closer to current scholarships ..." --Religious Studies Review "Students and teachers will find in this book a reliable, sensible, and up-to-date account of its subjects. There are no idiosyncratic opinions; students will never be misled into mistaking a minority viewpoint for a majority consensus...there are many innovative things about this book." Speculum "...by its intelligent, lucid, and detailed summary of the very extensive research published during that half century, it is likely to prove as durable and as valuable to students as the works by Knowles."
