Brill's Companions to the Christian Tradition
Volumes deal with persons, movements, schools and genres in medieval and early modern Christian life, thought and practice. Written by the foremost specialists in the respective fields, they aim to provide full balanced accounts at an advanced level, as well as synthesis of debate and the state of scholarship in eight to fifteen substantial chapters. Volumes are in English (contributions from continental scholars are translated). Three or four volumes of 350-600 pages are published each year.
