Item description for Christendom and its Discontents: Exclusion, Persecution, and Rebellion, 1000-1500 by Peter Diehl & Scott L. Waugh...

From the 11th century onward, Latin Christendom was torn by discontent and controversy. As the Church and secular rulers defined more clearly than ever before the laws and institutions on which they based their power, they demanded greater uniformity and obedience to their authority. The essays in this book cast new light on the dynamics of repression, highlighting the controversies and discontent that troubled medieval society. Looking especially at the mechanisms underlying the dissemination of heterodoxy and its repression, the religious aspirations of women, the fate of non-Christian minorities in Europe, and changing boundaries between orthodoxy and heterodoxy, the authors aim to provide an understanding of the Church's response to the diversity of belief and the practice by which it was confronted.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christendom and its Discontents: Exclusion, Persecution, and Rebellion, 1000-1500?

The meaning of religious intolerance  May 13, 2007
Gavin Langmuir's essay in CHRISTENDOM AND ITS DISCONTENTS portrays the evolution of the myth of the tortures of the body of Christ as revealing increasing tension in Medieval Europe between Christians and Jews--a tension that led eventually to the expulsion of Jews from most of Europe. The myth begins as advocacy for Jewish conversion to Christianity, but becomes over time, advocacy for the persecution of Jews. The refusal of the Jewish people to convert and the refusal of Christians to accept Jewish recalcitrance is at the core of European antisemitism. To read Langmuir and others in CHRISTENDOM AND ITS DISCONTENTS is to understand the genesis of a series of pogroms that culminated in the Nazi holocaust.
