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

32 editions published between 1969 and 2008 in English and held by 939 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 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medieval philosophy is widely regarded as having a theological and religious orientation, but more recently attention has been given to the early study of logic, language, and the philosophy of science. This history therefore gives a fascinating insight into medieval views on aspects such as astronomy, materialism, perception, and the nature of the soul, as well as of God
The evolution of medieval thought by David Knowles( Book )

15 editions published between 1962 and 1998 in English and held by 364 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 206 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 )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 65 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
Catalogue of Medieval manuscripts of Latin commentaries on Aristotle in British libraries( Book )

in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first of a projected series of four volumes describing manuscripts and fragments in British libraries containing commentaries on the Latin Aristotle. The first volume covers the Bodleian Library and the college libraries of the University of Oxford. It lists 397 items, including portfolios of fragments from more than one original book, dating from the late twelfth century until c. 1500. While many of these manuscripts have come to Oxford from elsewhere in Europe, some as recently as the twentieth century, the majority were made locally and used in the medieval University. Many of them, such as the important Canonici collection in the Bodleian Library, have not been adequately described before, while most of the anonymous commentaries have not been listed at all. Four indexes are provided to facilitate searching the main text

Using Autoethnography to Study the Personal and Professional Influences on Practice When Constructing Feedback for Undergraduate Students by D. E Luscombe( )

1 edition published in 2017 in Undetermined and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this research was to explore personal and professional influences on practice when constructing academic feedback for undergraduate students from a lecturer perspective, an under-researched area of practice. Autoethnography was used to foreground my personal experiences from which a more relational understanding of the intersecting nature of personal, professional, and broader influences on practice emerged. Within this case study, I focus on how the use of three of the chosen methods within an autoethnographic approach led me to confront complex methodological issues central to the process of becoming a researcher in the real world of practice. First, my personal educational and professional experiences were the focal point for initial exploration from which a more nuanced understanding of the intersecting nature of influences on practice was revealed. However, writing autobiographically highlighted the vulnerability involved when including personal information within a research project, bringing this issue alive instead of just being cautionary words within a textbook. Second, the act of writing and analyzing stories from practice enabled me to adopt a critical stance to the social relations present within practice. Yet, the construction of these stories involved my own recollections and versions of events which immersed me in debates around subjectivity and bias in autoethnography. Finally, tensions that emerged while using critical conversations and dialogue with others helped to deepen my understanding of relational ethical issues within autoethnography
