Reformation of the Twelfth Century by Giles Constable
Book DescriptionThis book is concerned with the changes in religious thought and institutions from the late eleventh century to the third quarter of the twelfth. It concentrates on monks and nuns, but also takes into consideration hermits, recluses, wandering preachers, crusaders, penitents, and other less organised forms of religious life. In particular it studies the variety of reform movements, the relation of the reformers to each other and the outside world, and their spirituality and motivation as reflected in their writings and activities. The work stands in close relation to the author's Three Studies in Medieval Religious and Social Thought (1995), which took what may be called a horizontal approach, studying three topics over the entire Middle Ages. The present work takes a vertical approach, looking at many aspects of reform during a comparatively short period. Together the two works show the relatively rapid change in religious life and sentiments in the twelfth century.

How to Defeat the Saracens, Hardback (August 2012)

Extensive notes guide the reader through the historical context of this fascinating work.

Libellus de Diversis Ordinibus et Professionibus Qui Sunt in Aecclesia, Hardback (November 1972)» View all books by Giles Constable
"The Libellus de Diversis Ordinibus", written in the 1130s or 1140s is a description of the similarities and differences among the various orders of monks, canons, and hermits, and, though clearly a contribution to a contemporary debate, is more analytical than polemical. It is a useful source for religious life in the 12th century.
