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

35 editions published between 1969 and 2008 in English and held by 930 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 )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 741 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 )

12 editions published between 1962 and 1998 in English and held by 350 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)

Petri Abaelardi Opera theologica by Peter Abelard( Book )

33 editions published between 1969 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
The letter collection of Peter Abelard and Heloise by Peter Abelard( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and Latin and held by 185 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

Catalogue of Medieval manuscripts of Latin commentaries on Aristotle in British libraries by Rodney M Thomson( Book )

in English and held by 51 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

These duels, ambushes, and firefights, he writes, were more than personal vendettas: They were part of a"Western Civil War of Incorporation," pitting gunmen--usually Republicans and Unionists, who sided with the expanding banks, railroads, and businesses--against cowboys and independent farmers, who were often Democrats sympathizing with the Confederacy. Brown examines the gunfight near the O.K. Corral in this light, showing how it was a climax of tensions between Tombstone's Republican businessmen (represented by Wyatt Earp) and the county's cowboys (led by the Clantons and McLaurys). He also looks at such lesser-known battles as the Mussel Slough war, in which resisting farmers, imbuedwith the no-retreat ethic, fought for their independent lifestyle against encroaching rail barons. This Civil War of Incorporation fed the violence of the West and reinforced the legal doctrine of "no duty to retreat." The frontier days are long past, but Brown shows how the ethic of no retreat continues to shape everything from our entertainment to our foreign policy (including President Bush's "line drawn in the sand") to our politics to cases like that of Bernhard Goetz. Though challenged as never beforeby the values of peace and social activism, it remains a central theme in American thought and character
