these three posts
These three posts are essays I have written recently and am pleased with, any, and all, comments and criticisms are of course welcome. they are all in various ways concerned with the way in the politics of medieval, and early modern, religious movements have been interpreted by modern historians. I have tried to overcome the habit of historians, whether marxist or otherwise, who have imposed modern attitudes upon people and movements in very different times and circumstances. I have tended to describe this approach as 'being temporally sensitive', a clunky expression but the best I can come up with at present.
