Description

Born amidst the Black Death, Saint Vincent Ferrer is deemed one of the most famous preachers of medieval Europe. A constant traveler, Ferrer traversed Europe, preaching of the apocalypse's imminence, converting Jews and Muslims to Christianity, and working for moral reform. This study reassesses Ferrer's motives, controversial methods, and impact.



Saint Vincent Ferrer, His World and Life is carefully researched and, above all, a good read. It brilliantly accomplishes the goals Daileader sets in the introduction. It presents a nuanced view of the period's most important evangelist by outlining the religious and social conditions that motivated his views. The apocalypticism that shaped his moral reform program and his efforts to segregate non-Christian communities also illuminates the process by which Spain came to reject its diverse religious past. (Sol Miguel-Prendes, Speculum, Vol. 94 (3), July, 2019)
