In a work of splendid scholarship that often reads like a detective story and that owes as much to keen intuition as to the mastery of difficult sources, Richard Fletcher lays out the story of the Christianization of Europe. Whether from faith or by force, conversion had an immerse impact that is with us even today, and it is Richard Fletcher's achievement to make that impact felt and understood. 36 photos. 10 maps.
