The school of Peter Abelard: the influence of Abelard's thought in the early scholastic period by D. E Luscombe( Book )

36 editions published between 1969 and 2008 in English and held by 946 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Abelard conducted many analyses of Scriptural and Patristic teachings, and achieved an extensive rapprochement between Christian and pagan thought. His public career was ended in 1140 by an ecclesiastical condemnation, but this touched upon the central issues facing the early leaders of the medieval scholastic movement and Abelard's own teachings continued to be controversial. Dr Luscombe considers the influence of Abelard's principal teachings among his contemporaries and successors. his aim is to explain the conflicting estimates of Abelard which were current in the twelfth century and later, and to provide a full account of the writings and varied fortunes of Abelard's disciples. He also examines the manuscript tradition of Abelard's work and that of his followers. The condemnation of 1140 repudiated Abelard's leading doctrines. This led some of Abelard's disciples to partly retreat from the position of their master, whereas some chose to adapt and extend his teachings
Medieval thought by D. E Luscombe( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Middle Ages span a period of well over a millennium: from the emperor Constantine's Christian conversion in 312 to the early sixteenth century. During this time there was remarkable continuity of thought, but there were also many changes made in different philosophies: various breaks, revivals and rediscoveries. David Luscombe's history of Medieval Thought steers a clear path through this long period, beginning with three great influences on medieval philosophy: Augustine, Boethius, and Pseudo-Denis, and focusing on Alcuin, then Anselm, Abelard, Aquinas, Ockham, Duns Scotus, and Eckhart amongst others from the twelfth to the fifteenth century

The evolution of medieval thought by David Knowles( Book )

13 editions published between 1962 and 1998 in English and held by 360 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 letter collection of Peter Abelard and Heloise by Peter Abelard( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and Latin and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They have also given rise to huge disagreements over their historical content and significance. The collection opens with an autobiography which contains the story of the calamities that followed Abelard's successes - his castration, his condemnation for heresy, and the unhappiness of the couple's separation. Heloise's letters show an exceptional outpouring of grief and bitter recrimination. Yet the correspondence closes with thoroughly serious, scholarly, and original enquiries into the origins and development of pagan, Jewish, and Christian ideals of religious life both male and female. It constitutes a fundamental source for discussion and debate about important features of thought and religion in the Middle Ages. A new critical edition based on all the manuscripts has long been needed. Its appearance here with a facing English translation, a full introduction, extensive annotation taking into account recent scholarship, and detailed indexes will enable all kinds of readers to enjoy the letters and to join the debates which they always stir

Rulership and Rebellion in the Anglo-Norman World, c.1066-c.1216 : Essays in Honour of Professor Edmund King( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The importance of the themes of rulership and rebellion in the history of the Anglo-Norman world between 1066 and the early thirteenth century is incontrovertible. The power, government, and influence of kings, queens and other lords pervaded and dominated society and was frequently challenged and resisted. But while biographies of rulers, studies of the institutions and operation of central, local and seigniorial government, and works on particular political struggles abound, many major aspects of rulership and rebellion remain to be explored or further elucidated. This volume, written by leading scholars in the field and dedicated to the pioneering work of Professor Edmund King, will make an original, important and timely contribution to our knowledge and understanding of Anglo-Norman history

5 editions published between 1976 and 1979 in 3 languages and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summary: Petrus Abaelardus (1079|1142), berühmt durch seine Liebes- und Leidensgeschichte mit Heloise, die er in seinem autobiographischen Werk "Historia calamitatum" niederschrieb, zählte zu den angesehensten Gelehrten seiner Zeit. Brilliant als Philosoph und Theologe gehörte er zu den Mitbegründern der Scholastik, indem er theologische Sachverhalte durch sprachlogische Überlegungen zu erhellen suchte. Abaelards Ethik wird hier in neuer deutscher Übersetzung präsentiert. Der kritische Text beruht ebenfalls auf einer neuen Kollation der Handschriften und Analyse der Überlieferung. In dieser bedeutsamen Schrift legt Abaelard die Prinzipien seiner intentionalen Ethik dar. Damit liegt nach dem Römerbriefkommentar nun das zweite wichtige Werk dieses berühmten Philosophen und Theologen des 12. Jahrhunderts in den "Fontes Christiani" vor

Anselm by G. R Evans( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"St Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109) was one of the greatest Christian writers of Medieval Europe. Although best known as the inventor of the famous 'ontological argument' for God's existence, his writings cover all chief aspects of Christian doctrine and have been a major influence on western theology." "Equal to Anselm's theology are his spiritual writings, which are alive with an understanding of the gentleness and mercy of a God who comes to meet humanity in its suffering and striving." "In this study, Dr Evans explores the full range of Anselm's works, placing both the theology and the devotional writings in context for the modern reader."--Jacket
