(p.171) 5. The medieval church
A Century of Theological and Religious Studies in Britain, 1902-2002

David Luscombe

British Academy

This chapter discusses the contributions that were made by former Fellows of the Academy to the study of the medieval church. It states that the history of the medieval church is inseparable from the general history of the Middle Ages, since the church shaped society and society shaped the church. The chapter determines that no hard and fast distinction can always be made between the works by ecclesiastical historians during the twentieth century, and the contributions made to general history by other historians.

Keywords:   Fellows, contributions, medieval church, Middle Ages, society, ecclesiastical historians
