  • Historia animae utilis de Barlaam et Ioasaph (spuria) IIby Robert Volk

    De Gruyter 2006; US$ 252.00

    A long occidental tradition has regarded the Greek monastic romance Barlaam and Josaphat as the work of John Damascene, and the first critical edition of the work appears now in the corpus of his writings.  In actual fact - as became apparent during the editing - it is a work from the late 10th century, and the author is almost certainly... more...

  • The Monk and the Bookby Megan Hale Williams

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 38.00

    In the West, monastic ideals and scholastic pursuits are complementary; monks are popularly imagined copying classics, preserving learning through the Middle Ages, and establishing the first universities. But this dual identity is not without its contradictions. While monasticism emphasizes the virtues of poverty, chastity, and humility, the scholar,... more...

  • Theodore of Mopsuestiaby Frederick McLeod

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 36.95

    Theodore, bishop of Mopsuestia, (c.350-428) stands out as the pre-eminent exponent of the School of Antioch’s literal, historical and rational emphases in exegesis and of its staunch defence of Christ’s humanity. At his death, he was hailed as one of the outstanding, prolific biblical theologians of his time. However, after his works and person were... more...

    OUP Oxford 2005; US$ 149.99

    Augustine and the Disciplines takes its cue from Augustine's theory of the liberal arts to explore the larger question of how the Bible became the focus of medieval culture in the West.

  • Theurgisches Denkenby Wiebke-Marie Stock

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 182.00

    Das Werk des spätantiken Philosophen und Theologen Dionysius Areopagita (~500) hat in der abendländischen Geistesgeschichte eine außerordentlich reiche Wirkung entfaltet.
