Review:

"a great contribution to the study of bibles from the thirteenth to the fifteenth centuries."- Pablo Alvarez, University of Michigan, in: Renaissance Quarterly 67/2 (Summer 2014), pp. 662-663
"A major contribution to recent advancements in medieval biblical studies [...]. Form and Function has, in a very important way, raised as many questions as it has answered, and has suggested many fruitful areas of research for historians of material and religious culture, book and manuscript history, art history, liturgy, exegesis, preaching and monastic reform." - Jessalynn Bird, Naperville, IL., in: Sehepunkte 14/1 (15 January 2014)
"What Form and Function in the Late Medieval Bible shows us, is the diversity and scope of late medieval Bibles and how this is connected to readers and users in, but also outside monastic communities. [...] A worthy addition to the impressive and rapidly expanding series Library of the Written Word." - Mart van Duijn, Leiden University Libraries, in: Quaerendo 44/3 (2014), pp. 216-218
