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 944 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 )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 746 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 )

20 editions published between 1962 and 1998 in English and held by 402 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 Pedro Abelardo( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and Latin and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Highlights: --A much needed new, critical edition of one of the most celebrated love affairs in western history --A central point of reference and enquiry into the European Renaissance of the Twelfth Century --Exposes keen rivalries among leading scholars and churchmen in twelfth-century France --Richly informative about lively debates between scholars in the twelfth century --Aids understanding of medieval love and marriage --Reveals the enormous grief of an unwilling but very wise abbess; provides keen insights into medieval literary artistry --Includeds invaluable documentation concerning female monasticism in the Middle Ages. The collected letters of Peter Abelard and Heloise provide an extraordinarily vivid account of one of the most celebrated love affairs in the western world. It was an affair that developed into a vigorous quarrel and raised fundamental questions about love, marriage, and religious life, and also provided a uniquely valuable illustration of the intellectual and religious ferment that is called the Renaissance of the twelfth century. Abelard was the leading philosopher of his time and a very public figure in France, as well as being a fiercely attacked theologian and unpopular abbot. Heloise, his brilliant pupil, lover, and wife, also became a nun and abbess, much against her will. She provoked this brilliantly written correspondence which is widely regarded as one of the finest literary compositions of the twelfth century. These letters have for many centuries given enjoyment to their readers and have inspired numerous creative imitations. 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. Readership: Historians and students of medieval culture, religion, and thought; readers interested in medieval women writers; historians of medieval schools and universities and of medieval monasticism Edited by David Luscombe, Emeritus Professor of Medieval History, The University of Sheffield Translated by the Late Betty Radice, Formerly Honorary Fellow of St Hilda's College, Oxford, and former vice-president of the Classical Association, and revised by David Luscombe David Luscombe studied and taught in the University of Cambridge and was Professor of Medieval History in the University of Sheffield until 2003.

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

10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 168 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

Peter Abelard and Heloise : collected studies by D. E Luscombe( )

9 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These essays provide original reflections and new evidence for the lives and work of an outstanding medieval couple, Peter Abelard and Heloise. The main themes of David Luscombe's studies are the careers and the thought of Peter Abelard, his philosophy, theology and monastic teaching, his relationship in marriage and in religious life with Heloise and their correspondence. The essays, now brought together in a single volume, show how much is still to be learned from the presentation of new evidence and the opening of new enquiries about the lives and calamities of Peter Abelard and Heloise"--

The fifth volume of The New Cambridge Medieval History brings together studies of the political, religious, social and economic history of the whole of Europe and of the Mediterranean world between about 1198 and 1300. Comprehensive coverage of the developments in western Europe is balanced by attention to the east of Europe, including the Byzantine world, and the Islamic lands in Spain, north Africa and the Levant. Thematic articles look at the fine arts, the vernacular, communications and other aspects of a period in which the frontiers of Latin Christendom were expanding vigorously outwards; and attention is paid to the frontier societies that emerged in Spain, the Baltic and the Mediterranean islands

Catalogue of Medieval manuscripts of Latin commentaries on Aristotle in British libraries( Book )

in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
