Laity in the Middle Ages, The: Religious Beliefs and Devotional Practices by Andre Vauchez

In these lively and incisive essays Andre Vauchez explores the religious beliefs and devotional practices of laypeople in medieval Europe and grapples with some of the most difficult issues in medieval history: the nature of popular devotion, the role of religion in civic life, the sociology of religious attitudes and practices, and the relationship between the intersecting spheres of lay and clerical culture.

The translation is on the whole elegant, capturing Vauchez's own luminous prose with considerable grace. . . . The Laity in the Middle Ages is an invaluable witness to the work of the scholar who has done so much to awaken us to complexities of the religious experience of the laity in the Middle Ages. -- The Catholic Historical Review
