The Papal Monarchy: The Western Church from 1050–1250


Clarendon Press, Oxford University Press 1989

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The two centuries covered in this volume were among the Church’s most creative. Colin Morris charts the emergence of much that is considered characteristic of European culture and religion, including universities, commercial cities, the crusades, the friars, chivalry, marriage, and church architecture. In all these developments, the Roman Church played an important and often fundamental role. A re-evaluation of that role is now particularly apt given the dissolution of Christendom in its old form witnessed by today’s generation.

Praise for the Print Edition

Professor Morris has written a massively impressive book. It is difficult to know what to praise first: its comprehensive coverage, its masterful synthesis, its relentless good sense, or its felicitous prose . . . a superb book that will for a very long time dominate teaching and thinking about the church in the high Middle Ages.
