"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 ofThe Hanged Manis so good, so well written and so nicely inflected with wry humor that it makes Medieval history come alive."--William Jordan, Princeton UniversityBartlett, Robert is the author of 'Hanged Man A Story of Miracle, Memory, And Colonialism in the Middle Ages', published 2006 under ISBN 9780691126043 and ISBN 0691126046.
