Product Description

A masterful narrative of the Middle Ages, when religion became a weapon for kings all over the world. 

In her earlier work, The History of the Ancient World, Susan Wise Bauer wrote of the rise of kingship based on might. But in the years between the fourth and the twelfth centuries, rulers had to find new justification for their power, and they turned to divine truth or grace to justify political and military action. Right thus replaced might as the engine of empire. 

Not just Christianity and Islam but the religions of the Persians and the Germans, and even Buddhism, were pressed into the service of the state. This phenomenon–stretching from the Americas all the way to Japan–changed religion, but it also changed the state.
