Producing Christian Culture : Medieval Exegesis and its Interpretative Genres, Hardback Book

Producing Christian Culture : Medieval Exegesis and its Interpretative Genres Hardback

Edited by Dr. Giles E. M. Gasper, Francis Watson, Matthew R. Crawford

Description

Producing Christian Culture takes as its thread the 'interpretative genres' within which medieval people engaged with the Bible.

Contributors to the volume present specific material as a case study illustrative of a specific genre, whether devotional, homiletical, scholarly, or controversial.

The chronological range moves from St Augustine to the use of gospel texts in polemical writing of the first two decades of the 1500s, with focal sections on early medieval Anglo-Saxon and Carolingian theology, the scholastic turn of the High Middle Ages, and the influence of vernacular writing in the later Middle Ages.

The tremendous range and vitality of medieval responses to biblical texts are highlighted within the studies.
