Robert Grosseteste : the growth of an English mind in medieval Europe by R. W Southern( Book )

38 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in English and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a study of the intellectual development and influence of one of the most independent and vigorous Englishmen of the Middle Ages -- a medieval Dr. Johnson in his powers of mind and personality. Like Dr. Johnson he was of humble birth, lived for many years in obscurity, and emerged only late in life as a national figure, at once deeply conservative and profoundly critical of the contemporary world. As a scientist, theologian and pastoral leader, he was rooted in an English tradition going back before the Norman Conquest, and he looks forward to such disturbing characters of the later Middle Ages as Piers Plowman and John Wycliffe, though with a wider range of intellectual interests than any of them."

In this magisterial study of the life and work of St. Anselm, Sir Richard Southern provides the definitive study of one of the most complex and fascinating philosophical minds in Christian history. St. Anselm brings together all the elements of a man whose intensely concentrated search for God filled all the phases and aspects of his life and work. Nothing in Anselm's thinking was simply ordinary or typical of his age. (Barenes & Noble)

History and historians : selected papers of R.W. Southern by R. W Southern( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"R. W. Southern (1912-2001) is widely regarded as one of the greatest medieval historians. His first book, The Making of the Middle Ages (1953), translated into many languages and never out of print, is recognized as a classic. This volume contains the series of reflections on medieval historical writing that Southern produced during his tenure as President of the Royal Historical Society, supplemented by his occasional pieces on two related subjects: the nature of academic history and appreciations of other medievalists, both his teachers and his contemporaries. Their publication here in book format makes these writings by a master medievalist accessible to the wider audience they deserve."--Jacket
