Item Type: Book/Report/Proceedings
Additional Information: This book is the first full-length study in any language of the development of historical traditions within the Carmelite Order. While encompassing the wider question of the 'invention of tradition', it also engages with notions of historical 'truth' and rhetoric in medieval writing, and with the historical impulses behind the creation of such traditions by religious orders. The book has been reviewed e.g. by Malcolm Baber in American Historical Review (2004): 'This is an excellent book: scholarly, judicious and thought-provoking' ; Frances Andrews in Journal of Ecclesiastical History (2004): 'In this volume Andrew Jotischky establishes himself as the foremost scholar currently working on the medieval Carmelites'; Joseph Byrne, Church History 72 (2003), 'Jotischky has written a fine monograph.'
