This book is the first major study in English of a group of late twelfth-century religious enthusiasts, the early Humiliati, who were condemned by the Church as heretics in 1184 but--in a remarkable transition--were reconciled seventeen years later and went on to establish a highly successful religious order in northern Italy. Using a wide range of sources, the nature of the early movement and its processes of institutional development are reconstructed. The book also includes a Bullarium Humiliatorum, a list of papal and episcopal letters and privileges.


"Elegantly written and meticulously researched, this book expands our understanding of the religious revival of the twelfth and thirteenth century by taking up the Humiliati's story where Grundmann left off... A major contribution to the field, this book is detined to become the authoritative source on the Humiliati for many years to come."--American Historial Review Dec 2001
