About one hundred years after Albert Hauck's comprehensive study, this is a description of medieval Christianity written by a Protestant church historian. In it church events are incorporated into the general development of Europe with a special focus on theology and piety. In his work, Volker Leppin follows the path of Christianity from the upheavals caused by the Germanic migrations and ethnogenesis to the high medieval institutional consolidations and pluralities up to the Late Middle Ages with its many tensions and polarities. He provides comprehensive up-to-date information on the external events, information drawn from current interdisciplinary research. Thus church history is at the same time the cultural history of Christianity.
