Russell has also written two books on the history of the notion of Heaven: A History of Heaven: The Singing Silence (1997), which deals with the period from around 200 . up to Dante, and Paradise Mislaid (2006), which takes the story up to the present day. Works. The Library of Congress lists 18 books written by Russell: Dissent and Reform in the Early Middle Ages (1965, 1982, 1992). Witchcraft in the Middle Ages (1972). The Devil: Perceptions of Evil from Antiquity to Primitive Christianity (1977).

Jeffrey Burton Russell once observed that an adequate general history of heaven had yet to be written for a contemporary audience. Students of the history of Christianity should rejoice that he has taken up the task with his customary gusto and learning.

This volume, a general history of the Church in the Middle Ages, pays close attention to the spiritual, intellectual, and institutional aspects of medieval Christianity. The author's central theme is the tension between the two forces within the Church - the spirit of order and the spirit of prophecy. The spirit of order attempts to reform man and his institutions; the spirit of prophecy attempts to transform them into the world of God. Mr. Russell suggests that this tension created a balance within the Church that kept it from forgetting the nature of basic religious experience while continuing to remain sensitive to the needs of society. No study of medieval history would be complete without a consideration of the role of the Church in medieval life; students using this book will find it eminently suited to this purpose.

This book was somewhat of a disappointment. It's scope was fairly limited, and while the premise appeared to be that medieval Christianity was developed by competing notions of prophecy and order, this work neither substantiated the claim with any truly academic prowess, nor did it really stand out in the long list of historical accounts of Christianity. Overall, the sources seemed a bit dated and wooden. Not something that I would recommend, except as a supplementary perspective on the history of Christianity.

Excellent short introduction to the history of Western Christianity during the Middle Ages. Again and again, I've found the categories of prophecy and order (or spirit and law) to be incredibly useful as a frame to think about developments in the medieval intellectual and institutional worlds.
