Praise for the French edition:"We too often forget that Christianity is not merely a belief or value system, but a conception of time sanctified by the coming of Christ?. To understand this, there is nothing better than reading this new book by Jacques Le Goff."--Paul Francois Paoli, Le Figaro Litteraire Praise for the French edition:"Astonishing erudition and familiarity... With Jacques Le Goff there is one thing that we are sure to not waste. Our time."--Laurent Lemire, Le Nouvel Observateur
