Origins of European Dissent (94 Edition)by R. I. Moore
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
'R. I. Moore traces the roots of dissent, the support which it commanded, and the reactions which it elicited from the holders of established power in the changing needs and conflicts of the expanding society of the eleventh and twelfth centuries: in spite of repression religious uniformity has never since reigned unchallenged. His controversial argument is that the ideas and aspirations of the heretics had far less to do with religious faith or outlook than with the consequences of social anxieties and frustrations. He holds too that similarly the dogma of the Catholic Church can be understood more clearly in terms of the politics of power than of salvation.'.
Moore traces the roots of the rejection of the Western church in the eleventh and twelfth centuries and argues that heresy had less to do with faith than with the changing world of the time. A reprint of the corrected edition first published in 1985.
Originally published by Allen Lane, 1985.
