Review of the hardback: '...not only the first scholarly book on indulgences specifically focused upon England, but the result of Herculean archival research ...This is a long-awaited and necessary book, aimed at scholars but written with great verve and clarity.' The Tablet
Review of the hardback: ... sheds much new light and challenges long-held views in a fresh and stimulating way.' Contemporary Review
'Swanson's impressively extensive study seeks to dispel the myths surrounding pardoners and the undulgences (pardons) they sold ... this is a difficult topic superbly handled by a master of the field. What Swanson provides in [this book is not so much a rehabilitation of the pardon in history, more a reassessment - and a highly detailed and long-overdue one at that. This will be the seminal text on the subject for a long time to come.' The Journal of Church History
