Summary
Brett Whalen explores the medieval belief that Christendom would spread to every corner of the earth before the end of time. Starting with the eleventh-century papal reform, he shows how theological readings of history, prophecies, and apocalyptic scenarios enabled medieval churchmen to project the authority of Rome over the world.--[book jacket]
