The Chance of Salvation

A History of Conversion in America
Lincoln A. Mullen
The United States has a long history of religious pluralism, and yet
Americans have often thought that people's faith determines their
eternal destinies. The result is that Americans switch religions more
often than any other nation. The Chance of Salvation traces the
history of the distinctively American idea that religion is a matter
of individual choice.

Clerical Households in Late Medieval Italy
Roisin Cossar
"This is a major contribution not only to the history of the late
medieval family and the Italian church, but also to historical
methodology. With her subtle analysis, Cossar persuades us that
scholars must be attentive to archival documents as carefully
crafted instruments of those who participated in their creation,
rather than as transparent windows onto the past."

The Avignon Papacy Contested

An Intellectual History from Dante to Catherine of Siena
Unn Falkeid
"Falkeid's book is a welcome addition to the history of the political and
intellectual climate of Europe in the fourteenth century."
-New Criterion
"Falkeid demonstrates quite well how the development of the Avignon
papacy created a disconcerting yet fertile environment that forced
many of the smartest people in Europe at the time to confront new
issues and strike out in new directions. A fine piece of scholarship."
-George W. Dameron, author of
Florence and Its Church in the Age of Dante
