'a fascinating volume, which any future study of calendar rituals - or of 'pagan residues' in popular culture - will have to take into account.' - Margaret Cormack, Speculum - A Jnl of Medieval Studies, 2000. 'Students of religion will be impressed by the ample evidence the book provides, not for the survival of pagan religious practices in a Christian era, but for the survival of Catholic practices in a Protestant one.' - Margaret Cormack, Speculum - A Jnl of Medieval Studies, 2000. 'Well produced and written in a pleasing style, it is a rich source of information about late-medieval calendar customs whose scope extends far beyond the Middle Ages. Stations of the Sun belongs in the reference collection of any college library.' - Margaret Cormack, Speculum - A Jnl of Medieval Studies, 2000. 'a tour de force from one of the liveliest and most wide-ranging of practising English historians this unfailingly stimulating, learned and engaging book places a relatively neglected aspect of English social history firmly on the map. ' -Eamon Duffy, TLS
