This book provides a nice overview of medieval heretics. It is dividedinto several chapters that deal with early, middle, and late phases of the Middle Ages. My focus was the High Middle Ages but I read the whole.

The book records to a point just before the insanity and slaughter of the 14th and 15th centuries, from 300 to 1480 a.d. meaning this book stops short just before the classic "witch craze" of the Renaissance.

The PROBLEM of this book is, somethings Jeffrey Russell says are contradictory.He readily quote ancient sources on paganistic practices then rejects the ancient historians opinion on what they witnessed. So it's a bad conclusion I can't completely agree with.
