Product description

This narrative history masterfully weaves together the sweeping events surrounding the so-called "Babylonian captivity" of the popes into the broader story of 14th-century Europe, a turbulent time of transition between Middle Ages and Renaissance when seven successive popes resided in Avignon in the south of France.

Review quote

"An excellent introduction to a critical period in the history of medieval Europe and the church. Mullins provides a well-balanced and sympathetic treatment of popes often denigrated for their lack of piety." --Michael Frassetto, author, " The Great Medieval Heretics"
