The evolution of medieval thought by David Knowles( Book )

91 editions published between 1962 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 2,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the many merits of this book is that it places Western scholasticism in its setting--and this both in space and in time. Plotinus lives on, Aristotle comes back to life again, Averroes breaks in--but this is not the right word, for this Muslim philosopher and his Western Christian disciples are inmates of the same house. Professor Knowles brings out the unity of Islamic and Western Christian culture. Medieval Islam and Western Christendom had a common mental heritage of Jewish religion and Greek philosophy; both were stimulated intellectually by a tension between the Judaic and the Hellenic pole of their thought; and the same stimulus led thinkers in both provinces of this Judaistic-Hellenistic Christian-Muslim world to interest themselves in the same problems." -in The Observer (London)
The monastic order in England; a history of its development from the times of St. Dunstan to the Fourth Lateran Council, 940-1216 by David Knowles( Book )

98 editions published between 1940 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation The Monastic Order in England by Dom David Knowles was originally published in 1940 and was quickly recognised as a scholarly classic and masterpiece of historical literature. It covers the period from about 940, when St Dunstan inaugurated the monastic reform by becoming abbot of Glastonbury, to the early thirteenth century. Its core is a marvellous narrative and detailed analysis of monasticism in twelfth-century England, brilliantly set in the continental background of all the monastic movements of the day - with a vivid evocation of Anselm, Ailred, Henry of Blois and a host of other central figures. Dom David himself brought this second edition up to date in 1963

The nature of mysticism by David Knowles( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last fifty years, mystical theology has become a common type of discussion and research, largely as a result of the developments in European schools of psychology. Most studies have concentrated their efforts on an empirical and existential interpretation of the mystical experience, rather than a spiritual one. The author takes a somewhat different approach in this book. The two main purposes of his study are to explain the nature of the mystical experience by showing what it has in common with the Christian theology of grace; and to show the similarity of the Christian and non-Christian mystical experiences
The monastic constitutions of Lanfranc by Lanfranc( Book )

54 editions published between 1951 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Monastic Constitutions of Lanfranc, archbishop of Canterbury from 1070 to 1089, has long been recognized as one of the most important historical sources for medieval monastic life. In this major new revision of Dom David Knowles's classic editions of 1951 and 1967, Christopher N.L. Brooke incorporates the historical scholarship of the last generation to offer further insight into and illumination of Lanfranc and the monastic world of the eleventh century." "The Monastic Constitutions comprise a liturgical directory, a description of the functions of the leading officials of a monastery, and other fundamental regulations. Composed around 1077, they were intended for Lanfranc's own cathedral at Canterbury, for his nephew Paul's abbey of St Albans - and for any other houses which might observe them. The structure of life in a monastery of the traditional monasticism of the eleventh century has never been so clearly laid out as in this book, but the work also has its puzzles, which Christopher Brooke in this new edition seeks to elucidate."--Jacket
