Summary "Superb. Robert Bartlett takes an utterly unnoticed text from the canonization dossier and uses it as a window into the politics, society, culture, and devotional world of the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries. I can think of no other book that gets as much of the Middle Ages into so small a compass."--Edward Peters, University of Pennsylvania
"The story of "The Hanged Man" is so good, so well written and so nicely inflected with wry humor that it makes Medieval history come alive."--William Jordan, Princeton University
