Based on a well-grounded bibliography, the book has creative insights and offers an original contribution to the study of late medieval English culture, approached from a thematic perspective. The authors trace the historical and socio-cultural background of an epoch when the Catholic Church influenced to a great extent the ethics of human conduct and they invite their readers to embark on a spiritual voyage back to a time when Christian faith played a major role in society, inspiring people and taming their fear of death (Monica Pillat).
