Most widely held works by E. Ann Matter
The church of solitude by Grazia Deledda( )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Church of Solitude tells the story of Maria Concezione, a young Sardinian seamstress living with breast cancer at the cusp of the twentieth century. Overwhelmed by the shame of her diagnosis, she decides that no one can know what has happened to her, but the heavy burden of this secrecy changes her life in dramatic ways and almost causes the destruction of several people in her life. This surprising novel paints the portrait of a woman facing the unknown with courage, faith, and self-reliance, and is the last and most autobiographical work of Grazia Deledda, who died of breast cancer in 1936, shortly after its publication."--Back cover
The voice of my beloved : the Song of Songs in western medieval Christianity by E. Ann Matter( )

23 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 1,369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Song of Songs, eight chapters of love lyrics found in the collection of wisdom literature attributed to Solomon, is the most enigmatic book of the Bible. For thousands of years Jews and Christians alike have preserved it in the canon of scripture and used it in liturgy. Exegetes saw it as a central text for allegorical interpretations, and so the Song of Songs has exerted an enormous influence on spirituality and mysticism in the Western tradition.In the Voice of My Beloved, E. Ann Matter focuses on the most fertile moment of Song of Songs interpretation: the Middle Ages. At least eighty Latin commentaries on the text survive from the period. In tracing the evolution of these commentaries, Matter reveals them to be a vehicle for expressing changing medieval ideas about the church, the relationship between body and soul, and human and divine love. She shows that the commentaries constitute a well-defined genre of medieval Latin literature. And in discussing the exegesis of the Song of Songs, she takes into account the modern exegesis of the book and feminist critiques of the theology embodied in the text
Creative women in medieval and early modern Italy : a religious and artistic renaissance( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Creative Women in Medieval and Early Modern Italy is a collection of essays on the flowering of women's participation in the religious and artistic life of Italy from the thirteenth to the seventeenth centuries. It brings together scholars of religious studies, history, literature, music, fine arts, and philosophy from both Italy and the United States. Several essays document and discuss new discoveries, such as the extraordinary collection of musical compositions written by women in Bologna and Milan in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and the convent theater of sixteenth-century Tuscany. Other essays, in contrast, offer new interpretations of well-known figures such as Catherine of Siena and Angela of Foligno, or radical new assessments of the early modern debates over concepts of women's sanctity and the boundaries between holiness and heresy. E. Ann Matter and John Coakley and the contributors to this volume richly demonstrate that women in the late Middle Ages and early modern period were able to carve out creative space, most successfully in the religious sphere. They show that women did indeed speak with a creative voice in this period, and furthermore, that they were not entirely defined and limited by their marginality
Law and the illicit in Medieval Europe by Ruth Mazo Karras( Book )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the popular imagination, the Middle Ages are often associated with lawlessness. As historians have long recognized, however, medieval culture was characterized by an enormous respect for law, legal procedure, and the ideals of justice and equity. Many of our most important modern institutions and legal conceptions grew out of medieval law in its myriad forms (Roman, canon, common, customary, and feudal)
The New Cambridge history of the Bible( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 2 "examines the development and use of the Bible from late Antiquity to the Reformation, tracing both its geographical and its intellectual journeys from its homelands throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean and into northern Europe. Richard Marsden and Ann Matter's volume provides a balanced treatment of eastern and western biblical traditions, highlighting processes of transmission and modes of exegesis among Roman and Orthodox Christians, Jews and Muslims and illuminating the role of the Bible in medieval inter-religious dialogue. Translations into Ethiopic, Slavic, Armenian and Georgian vernaculars, as well as Romance and Germanic, are treated in detail, along with the theme of allegorized spirituality and established forms of glossing. The chapters take the study of Bible history beyond the cloisters of medieval monasteries and ecclesiastical schools to consider the influence of biblical texts on vernacular poetry, prose, drama, law and the visual arts of East and West"--

From knowledge to beatitude : St. Victor, twelfth-century scholars, and beyond ; essays in honor of Grover A. Zinn, Jr.( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Knowledge to Beatitude is a collection of original essays on the intersection between Christian theology and spiritual life primarily in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, especially in the Parisian School of St. Victor, which honors the influential work of Grover A. Zinn, Jr. Written by distinguished scholars from various fields of medieval studies, these essays range from the study of the exegetical school of twelfth-century St. Victor and medieval glossed Bibles to the medieval cultural reception of women visionaries, preachers, and crusaders. Although focused on St. Victor, they provide analyses of Christian themes up to the modern period. A common thread is Zinn{u2019}s careful attention to the connections between medieval spirituality and biblical studies, the origin of these ideas, and their lasting influence in Christian culture. The essays take us from Hugh of St. Victor{u2019}s foundation{u2014}material culture{u2014}to the 'beatitude' of a wider understanding of Victorine culture and its lasting legacy. This volume is a fitting tribute to a generous scholar, teacher, and mentor. It will appeal to historians, scholars of religion and theology, and art historians."--Publisher's description
Solomon's divine arts by Joseph Hall( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mind matters : studies of medieval and early modern intellectual history in honour of Marcia Colish by Cary J Nederman( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Polish and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marcia Colish is one of the most influential scholars of the history of medieval and early-modern thought, the author of numerous books and scores of articles in the field, as well as a pioneering President of the Medieval Academy of America. This volume honours her accomplishments with papers by her many colleagues, friends and former students, who are themselves prominent scholars from across a range of disciplines. The chapters are diverse chronologically and topically, yet they are all stimulated by themes that Prof. Colish has explored during her long and distinguished career. They address the richness of European intellectual history between the twelfth and the sixteenth centuries, treating the multiple heritages of philosophy, theology, political theory, historiography, classical reception, and many other subjects to which her scholarship extends. The volume demonstrates the power of ideas in the development of European history generally, revealing that the careful study of the works of the 'mind' does indeed 'matter'
Education, civic virtue, and colonialism in fifteenth-century Italy : the Ogdoas of Alberto Alfieri by Alberto Alfieri( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and Latin and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Ogdoas, a series of dialogues about proper rulership, true nobility, and the afterlife, take place between deceased members of the Visconti family of Milan and one Adorno of Genoa, in a sort of Christian/Pagan Limbo. Written c. 1420 by the otherwise unknown Alberto Alfieri, who was serving at the time as schoolmaster of the Genoese colony on Caffa on the Black Sea, the dialogues are an interesting mirror of political and cultural self-consciousness in the early Renaissance. Originally written in Latin, the Ogdoas is known only in one manuscript and has never before been translated into any modern language."--Back cover
