Reviews and Features

"This volume provides an important corrective on a pivotal pope, who despite the press of business and the failure of the Second Crusade, made a significant contribution to the extension of papal authority and the centralisation of the Church."
- Kathleen G. Cushing, Journal of Ecclesiastical History, 70 (2019)

"This collection of thirteen essays, prefaced with an introduction by Andrew Jotischky, shines a valuable spotlight on Eugenius’s activities, and reassesses his contributions to some of the major developments and events of the 1140s and 1150s."
- Katharine Sykes, University of Birmingham, Journal of Church and State, Volume 61, Issue 3 (2019)

"The other recipient of thanks (ignoring the contributors and editors) must be Amsterdam University Press. The series in which this book is published - Church, Faith and Culture in the Medieval West - has been peregrinating for the last few years. Fortunately, CFCMW seems now to have reached its own port of salvation with AUP [...] This is another excellent contribution to CFCMW’s series on 12th-/13th-century popes. Collectively, these volumes now stand as a vital resource for the history of the High Medieval papacy."
- Benedict Wiedemann, Reviews in History (2019)

Pope Eugenius III (1145-1153)

The First Cistercian Pope

Elected pope in the wake of a rebellion, Eugenius III came to power as a relative unknown during a time of crisis. This book examines the controversial developments in papal justice and theological debate during his pontificate, his treatment of Cistercian monasteries, his relationships with France, Spain, and Rome, his work in the papal states, and the crusades. It offers a new view of an under-appreciated pope and the place of the church in a rapidly changing European society.
