A fine but unremarkable overview of the period during which the papacy was based at Avignon. Does the job, but oddly enough I found myself wanting more about the popes themselves and their administrations rather than the city. ( )

It's an engaging and readable introduction to the subject, but it does have a few problems as history – very few actual quotations from primary sources, and more critically a complete lack of footnotes. That means it's impossible to follow up on something you're interested in or verify something you're uncertain of. Still, I enjoyed it, and as long as you don't require a serious work of history you should be fine with this as a starter text. ( )

Edwin Mullins has produced another fine portrait of a remarkable period in both Christian and French history. Following on from his equally well researched book on the Benedictine monastery of Cluny, Edwin has described in great detail the 70 year exile of the papacy from Rome. As other reviewers have alluded, this book could more accurately have been titled "Avignon of the Popes" as it traces the effects the papal period had on this city. Clearly there is enough material to write a similar study on each of the seven popes individually. Edwin brings together those important events shaping both 14th century Europe and the Christian world into an engrossing tale. ( )

As a study of the seven popes of Avignon, this book would not rate highly. It is less about the popes themselves than about the City of Avignon and the history of the period in which they reigned. That being said, it is well written and provides some interesting insights into the Catholic church in the 1300s. The popes and caridinals played major roles in war, made serious attempts at peace-making, were often strong supporters of the arts, and the papal court was an important source of employment and what we would call today economic devleopment.

So, although the book was not what the title led me to expect, it was a very rich look into the role of the papal court. ( )

This book could have been more accurately titled "The Papacy at Avignon" since the book more broadly covers the events dealing with the papacy at this time, rather than an in-depth look at the Avignon popes. Certainly there is information here about these men, and three of them are covered at some length. However, two of the popes are given very brief treatments, and much of the book is given over to people and events around the popes, while not focusing on the pontiffs themselves.

The book is accurate, readable, and valuable for insight into an interesting time in the history of the church. It is not, however, strictly about the men who held the office of pope during this time. ( )
