“A vital perspective to recent explorations of the history and role of indulgences and, in general, the spirituality and ecclesiology of the later Middle Ages. This study illuminates the spiritual preoccupations and practices of the mid-fourteenth century from the ground up, free from special pleading, confessional posturing, and preconceptions.”
