    1. This book was on a reading list in preparation for a visit to Southern France which would include Avignon I had heard that there was a time that Rome was not the head of the Catholic Church but did not know any facts concerning it This is an excellent book on the subject but might be considered dull material for those who are not interested in church history I found it fascinating Mullins made the historical times and characters come to life Being able to walk through the remains of the papal pa [...]


    2. This is a hard book to rate and I want to be clear I rated it on content not on the writing The book was recommended to me after I made a trip to Avignon The city had been the home of the papacy for seventy five years and this book explains the history of that time The details are rich That said, this book is why people hate history The writing is dry and a tough read This was a fascinating period both for the Church and for Avignon and the author does not begin to do it justice Although I learn [...]


    3. This book was great fun and included all sorts of tidbits not only about the popes, but also about the royals, heretics and artists of the period I especially enjoyed Petrarch s snarky commentary on the papal court, and learning about Joanna of Naples My only complaint is that the author tends to jump around a bit chronolgically in order to group events by topic I can understand the need for this kind of thematic continuity, but sometimes he did not specify the new date a few paragraphs later, [...]


    4. This book might have its faults but it s a wonderful read Not really academic in its rigour it is however passionate and vivid and full of rich detail about what is a very unusual time and place in history I especially valued this book as I embarked on reading The Name of the Rose In fact this book is great as the launching point for all sorts of other related subjects eg Knights Templar, Cathars, 100 Years War, the early renaissance


    5. This was a well written book about the flight of the popes from Rome in the 1300 s to Avignon It gives a short, interesting history of each of the seven French popes who were elected during their 70 years in France The author did a good job of keeping the history interesting and not too dry A good read for anyone interested in Papal history or planning a trip to the current day city of Avignon.


    6. It s an engaging and readable introduction to the subject, but it does have a few problems as history very few actual quotations from primary sources, and critically a complete lack of footnotes That means it s impossible to follow up on something you re interested in or verify something you re uncertain of Still, I enjoyed it, and as long as you don t require a serious work of history you should be fine with this as a starter text.


    7. Quick overview of the 7 or 9, depending on how you count Popes who resided in Avignon and their impact on helping build the city I liked the book, but wished there was a bit detail about how events in the rest of Europe aside from what was covered regarding the 100 Years War affected the papacy.


    8. Read it before a visit to Avignon Excellent overview and with the right amount of threads to important historical events and people that are related to this period It gave me extra pleasure to visit the Papal Palace, however with my little girl on the arm, I had less time to savour the experience and feel the presence of the popes in the grand audience chamber.


    9. In depth info on the reasons for having the papacy moved to Avignon and the many different popes that kept it there, up to when it finally was moved back to Rome.


    10. Describes the fascinating period in Church history when the Church moved from Rome to France and then wouldn t move back.


    11. This was an interesting book There was good detail without going so in depth things got dry and or irrelevant.


    12. Rather dry narrative of the flight of the papacy from Rome to Avignon and its subsequent 70 years there.
