Publisher's Summary

Renowned professor Thomas F. Madden turns his scholarly eye on the intrigue and politics swirling about the Medieval Church. Professor Madden explores the compelling events that shaped the culture and forever altered history, from the Monophysite Controversy to reform movements to the Inquisition, Black Death, and Great Schism.This is a history populated with larger-than-life characters and notorious personages such as Charlemagne, Pope Innocent III, and the Knights Templar. Richly detailed and infused with dramatic intensity, Professor Madden's captivating lectures provide a better understanding not only of the Medieval Church, but of the modern world that followed.

Modern Scholar Wins!

Would you listen to The Modern Scholar again? Why?

Yes, compared to the Great Courses overview of the Catholic Church, it was a fair, clear, and comprehensive chronological overview of the Catholic faith. The information is provided in a clear and concise manner, that is easily recalled later.

Loved it! A great listen.

If you like the middle ages and/or the Catholic Church, you will love this audio book. The delivery can be a little dry at times, and you may need high-quality ear buds to ensure a non-muffled sound, but overall, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks Mr. Madden!
