I like atlases and this second volume in the series is excellent.
As with its sister volume on the reformation, this volume has one page of text and a supporting map. Unlike the reformation volume, there is no time line. However I like the way that accordance have included the index and tagged it as I prefer links to relying on searching.
There is a minimal overlap on the reformation period but i still believe it is worth buying both volumes.
The maps are excellent in terms of clarity, cartography and contain additional information to support the text.
At about 60 pages of text and 60 maps and including information up to 2015, this is a great resource. The text is limited to one page so very readable but many will want more information so should be considered as a summary or overview or introduction to a topic.
However, I do feel this volume majors on the Western church and i would have liked more information on the Eastern Orthodox churches.
Map 13 covers Byzantium under threat from 632–750 and then map 17 shows the Eastern Orthodox church circa 1000 with maps 18 and 19 show the Russian church and deal with the Great Schism of 1054. But during the middle ages we just get map 29 showing what is happening in Russia between 1220 and 1510 and then there is another gap until map 58 which shows the Russian since 1917. All the maps in between tend to show what the church in the west is doing including missionary activities into China, Africa and South America.
This is however a brilliant resource for what it covers.
