The Institute of Historical Research has now reprinted selected classic lectures, each with a short introduction by an eminent historian from the University of London. This commemorative volume provides a fascinating insight into the development of the discipline of history over the last century, revealing some significant changes in approach and emphasis as well as some surprising continuities. The Creighton Century is an invaluable guide to students of historiography, and a chance to relive some of the great lectures of the past 100 years, including those by Donald Coleman, Eric Hobsbawm, R.I. Moore and Sir Keith Thomas.

European Religious Cultures is a set of stimulating essays first written as offerings for Christopher Brooke on his eightieth birthday. They are now gathered for the enjoyment of all those interested in the history of religious cultures. They address a variety of practices in religious life -- among them pilgrimage and the urban cult of saints, the monastic performance of liturgy, the choice to enter the priesthood -- and situate them within the life-cycles and social relations of medieval Europeans. The authors have been inspired by Christopher Brooke's own interests over a long and fruitful career. They also look forward to new and exciting areas of medieval studies.
