Editorial Reviews

Review

“Oakley confronts all the major historiographical currents relevant to his subject and reveals that none of them can withstand the force of his critique. There is indeed nothing comparable in the literature to this single effort on Oakley’s part. ”—Steven Marrone, Tufts University
(Steven Marrone)

“Francis Oakley has a long and distinguished record illuminating the interplay between politics, religion, and education in the history of Western Civilization. This new book, with its depth of learning, clarity of writing, and wisdom, is the best explication available of the inseparability of the religious and the secular in the ancient and medieval worlds.”—Jeffrey Burton Russell, author of A History of Heaven: The Singing Silence
(Jeffrey Burton Russell)

"A masterful and challenging study, proposing no less than a paradigm shift in our understanding of ancient and medieval political theory in the global context of sacral kingship."—Marcia L. Colish, Yale University
(Maria L. Colish)

"Oakley's central argument is simple and elegant. Its demonstration is sophisticated and challenging."—Thomas F. X. Noble, Church History: Studies in Christianity and Culture
(Thomas F. X. Noble Church History)
