Description

Renowned professor Thomas F. Madden turns his scholarly eye on the intrigue and politics swirling about the Medieval Church. Professor Madden explores the compelling events that shaped the culture and forever altered history, from the Monophysite Controversy to reform movements to the Inquisition, Black Death, and Great Schism. This is a history populated with larger-than-life characters and notorious personages such as Charlemagne, Pope Innocent III, and the Knights Templar. Richly detailed and infused with dramatic intensity, Professor Madden's captivating lectures provide a better understanding not only of the Medieval Church, but of the modern world that followed.

Professional reviews

"Madden's 14 lectures on the Catholic Church in the Middle Ages make for enjoyable listening. He groups his discussions by both period and context, addressing the development of universities, the various heresies, and other topics. Madden shares both the basic facts that one needs in order to grasp the outlines of historical developments (names, dates, places, etc.) and more colorful, even lurid, stories about some of the key figures. The only problem with the structure of these lectures is that they seem to stop in mid-development. Madden's delivery is largely clear and professional, but marked by some odd breaks and pauses, and the fairly regular use of "um." Otherwise, his affection for his topic comes through strongly.
