About the Author

Eyal Poleg is Lecturer in Material History, 1200-1700, at Queen Mary University of London


'Approaching the Bible in medieval England is an absorbing and suggestive book. It is richly interdisciplinary, informed by a breadth of knowledge and scholarship. As well as its productive model for reception history it offers a compelling account of the relationship between texts and practice in the religious culture of later medieval England.' Julia Boffey, Queen Mary, University of London, Book of the Month, February 2014 'The volume makes an important contribution to our understanding of the use of the Bible in medieval England and its most lasting effect, as I have indicated, is to provoke questions and prompt a host of ideas for further research.' Dr Richard Marsden, Reviews in History, Reviews, May 2014 'Poleg's study is a must-read for scholars of liturgy, preaching, manuscripts, and legal history in England and beyond.' Diane J. Reilly, Indiana University, Sharp News Vol 23 No. 4, 1 December 2014 'Approaching the Bible is a valuable introduction to the practical role of religion in everyday life in late medieval England, of great interest both to religious historians and to scholars of late medieval literature.' Anna Wilson, Centre for Medieval Studies, University of Toronto, Comitatus: A Journal of Medieval and Renaissance Studies Volume 45 (2014), 1 January 2014 -- .
