 Amazon.com: The Rise of Magic in Early Medieval Europe: Books: Valerie Irene Jane Flint   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Drawing almost exclusively on early Church fathers and theologians from early medieval Europe (500-1000 CE), she sets out her theories on how many medieval magical practices arose, contrasting the Christian or Christianized forms of more acceptable magical practice with the pagan practices that she sees as their roots.

She also largely ignores the disparity between how magic and practitioners of magic were viewed and treated by the Church during the early Medieval as opposed to the Late Medieval/Early Modern periods.
