Original, intriguing, and solid as Gibraltar 21 July 2000
By Elizabeth G. Melillo - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This volume belongs on the shelf of any medievalist or student of theology. It is perhaps more enlightening for the 21st century than for the 13th century climate, since the pluralism of the latter was far more genuine and intelligent. Its humour and insight make it a pleasant dose of originality - and it is the first comprehensive study I've seen of this area. There is special attention to the Franciscan theologians (who, in England particularly, were quite extraordinary - even Aquinas looks bland next to Bonaventure and Duns Scotus.)
Now that the climate is ripe for remedying the problems created when "contemporary" theology meant forgetting the accumulated wisdom of 2,000 years, this new, scholarly, but immensely enjoyable (and occasionally hilarious) look at the topic is most refreshing. Author Macy is superb as both a historian and a clear, readable, original writer.
