This absorbing book takes us back to the busy, colorful world of a Netherlandish Catholic bishop and his flock from 16181620. Based upon the recently discovered daybook of Mathius Hovius, the book focuses not only on his life but also on key events and characters of the period. Episodes in the lives of monks, nuns, pilgrims, peasants, saints, and others bring to life the experience of religion during the Counterreformation

Author Biography: Craig Harline, professor of history at Brigham Young University, is also the author of The Burdens of Sister Margaret. Eddy Put is senior assistant at the Belgian National Archives.
