The first volume in the Brepols book series ‘Medieval Church Studies’ to be published under the auspices of the Department of History has just come out. The department secured the prestigious book series in the last couple of years, with Professor Ross Balzaretti and Drs Peter Darby, Rob Lutton and Claire Taylor comprising the editorial board. The volume, Medieval Liège at the Crossroads of Europe: Monastic Society and Culture, 1000-1300, edited by Steven Vanderputten, Tjamke Snijders, and Jay Diehl contains a rich collection of essays that explore the diocese of Liège’s role as a cultural crossroads between the German Empire and French lordships through the history of its monastic and ecclesiastical insitutions.

The book is the thirty-seventh in the series, which comprises monographs and collections devoted to the history of the Western Church from, approximately, the Carolingian reform to the Council of Trent. It builds on Brepols' longstanding editions of texts and primary sources, and presents studies that are founded on a traditional close analysis of primary sources but which confront current research issues and adopt contemporary methodological approaches.
