Unceasing Strife, Unending Fear:
Jacques de Thérines and the Freedom of the Church in the Age of the Last Capetians
William Chester Jordan

Book Description
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

Unceasing Strife, Unending Fear represents a very intelligent, clearly written, and original look at big and important events in fourteenth-century France through the eyes of a scholar-abbot whose life turns out to be far more interesting than even Noël Valois might have fancied. It is quite difficult to play a single life and line of thought and interest through a political and ecclesiological artillery barrage that ought to dwarf them, but Jordan does this again and again. This book ought to stimulate a lot of discussion and interest among both teachers and their students."--Edward Peters, University of Pennsylvania, author of Limits of Thought and Power in Medieval Europe
