Product Description


Gary Macy . . . has uncovered much unsuspected diversity in Medieval Eucharistic thought. . . . His knowledge of the sources is unique and unrivaled.
Keith J. Egan, Aquinas Chair in Catholic Theology, Saint Mary's College, Adjunct Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame

More than just a collection of previously published papers, this volume reflects, and makes easily available, the path-breaking research and reflection of our leading authority on the history of medieval Eucharistic theology and devotion. . . . Macy's work also sheds light on the actual dynamics of the development of doctrine in the medieval period itself. On all counts, this accessibly written book should attract a wide readership.
Marcia L. Colish, Frederick B. Artz Professor of History, Oberlin College

This book is a scholar's delight! Working expertly with a wide range of original sources, Macy recreates the discussion about Eucharist that actually took place in the Middle Ages. His careful historical research challenges many of today's theological presuppositions and provides a genuinely traditional base for new understandings and celebrations of Eucharist.
Bernard Cooke

These essays are 'must reading' for anyone serious about medieval theology, as well as for those seriously interested in ecclesiology and eucharistic theology, past or present.
Terrence W. Tilley, Chair, Department of Religious Studies, University of Dayton

Gary Macy's original, engaging, eloquent, deep, and witty book spreads out the rich diversity of medieval theology, dissolving current dogmatic or lazy presuppositions about the allegedly monolithic Middle Ages.
Jeffrey Burton Russell, Professor of History, Emeritus, University of California

In addition to being fascinating reading, Macy's work shows the liturgical reader that within the storeroom of history, peoples, beliefs and cultures which we call 'Catholicism' there has long existed an array of liturgies and theologies that have been accepted as permanent, indispensable and enriching expressions of her practice and faith.
Centro Studi S. Anselmo, Liberia - Editrice, Roma, Italy

. . . essential reading for anyone who would try to teach or to understand the history of eucharistic theology.
Modern Believing

A collection of wonderfully written, fresh essays by a superlative scholar who proves the preeminence of historical theology and the hyra-headed character of Catholic tradition.
The Catholic Journalist

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
