'a supremely beautiful object which I consider cheap at the price.' A. N. Wilson, Sunday Times 'The book is best savoured and admired as a collection of original scholarly essays on a major theme of first-rate interest and importance. There is a fundamental plan and shape which ensures that almost every topic is covered in a comprehensive way... C. N. L. Brooke, Journal of Ecclesiastical History 'this volume ... must be regarded as a work of monumental scholarship and a major contribution to our understanding of mediaeval society.' V. H. H. Green, Medium Aevum `These two volumes provide (amongst a great deal else) what may be evidence about ancient approaches to some of the most important general issues of governance and freedom that face the modern unversity.' Higher Education Review
