Using sermons, exorcisms, letters, biographies of the saints,
inscriptions, autobiographical and legal documents--some of which
are translated nowhere else--J. N. Hillgarth shows how the
Christian church went about the formidable task of converting
western Europe. The book covers such topics as the relationship
between the Church and the Roman state, Christian attitudes toward
the barbarians, and the missions to northern Europe. It documents
as well the cult of relics in popular Christianity and the
emergence of consciously Christian monarchies.
