The Feasts of Christendom provides an exhaustive resource on the major festivals of the Christian calendar. Drawing on sources historical, theological, liturgical, and cultural, Phillip Campbell leaves no stone unturned in this comprehensive study: When did the Church settle on December 25th for the date of Christmas? How do we know Pentecost happened on a Sunday? Why did central European farmers put a picture of the Annunciation inside a barrel? How come the English observed two St. Michael's days? Find out the answers and much more in The Feasts of Christendom.
