Many people have helped to bring this volume to press. We are grateful to our essayists for their generosity, their patience and efficiency, and for the consistent excellence that characterizes the writings of this Handbook. We are deeply indebted to Samantha Papaioannou, whose skillful editing wove the pieces into a well‐integrated whole. Brown University, and especially Professor Mark Cladis, Chair of the Department of Religious Studies, provided critical support both material and moral at crucial stages of the process. We also thank Patrick Owens for his work on the indexes, supported by the Cottrill‐Rolfes Chair of Catholic Studies at the University of Kentucky. At Oxford University Press we have been assisted by a splendid team of editors: Jean van Altena, Tanya Dean, Hilary O'shea, Lucy Qureshi, Dorothy McCarthy, Tom Perridge, Lizzie Robottom, Maggie Shade, and Jennifer Wagstaffe. Our heartfelt thanks go to each and every one of these. It has been a pleasure and an honour to work with such colleagues at every stage of this effort. Finally, we thank our respective spouses and families who have graciously tolerated the distraction of yet another scholarly project.
