Review:

"A unique addition to reference shelves, providing a focus on the Medieval period and contemporary scholarly positions not found in a standard reference work... Useful to a diverse audience. Recommended for academic libraries."
-"Booklist/RBB, April 15, 2003
"Entries offer a sensible arrangement and a broad scope. One of the books greatest assets is its thematic list of entries, which classes entries in context... The glossary and index at the end are also useful... Recommended. University libraries."
-"Choice, April 2003
"Informed lay readers and college students will find it especially helpful, as the articles are clear, easy to read, and well summarized... Highly recommended for libraries with larger history or Judaic collections."
