By Andrew Brown

In the arms of the laity, spiritual practices proved malleable. Their expression was once plagued by social context, prestige and gender, or even motivated by way of these in authority. but, as Brown argues, faith didn't functionality easily as an expression of social strength - hierarchy, patriarchy and authority will be either served and undermined by way of faith. In an age within which social mobility and upheaval, quite within the wake of the Black loss of life, had profound results on spiritual attitudes and practices, Brown demonstrates that our knowing of past due medieval faith could be firmly put inside of this context of social change.
