`Artes' and Bible in the Medieval West, Hardback Book

`Artes' and Bible in the Medieval West Hardback

Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series


The articles in this volume fall into two main groups, the one dealing with secular learning and especially grammar and logic, the other with biblical scholarship, while the final articles look at the work of particular scholars. Margaret Gibson, however, would see them all as closely interrelated. Scholars in the Latin West, from the end of Antiquity right through the 12th century, were united in the belief that all knowledge, if true, was compatible and that sapientia was one and coherent. In the same way, she would hold, it is impossible to study only the 'artes' given their implication for Bible, nor only Bible, when every commentator thought within the context of the 'artes'. Les articles contenus dans ce volume se divisent en deux categories principales: la premiere traitant du savoir seculaire et, plus particulierement, de la grammaire et de la logique; la seconde s'attachant au savoir biblique avec, pour finir, un nombre d'articles examinant l'oeuvre de certains erudits. Margaret Gibson considere toutes ces etudes comme etant interdependantes. Les erudits de l'Occident latin, de la fin de l'Antiquite A celle du 12e siecle, etaient unis dans la conviction que toutes connaissances veridiques etaient compatibles entre elles et que la sapience formait un tout coherent. Par lA mAme, l'auteur maintient qu'il est impossible de s'adonner uniquement A l'etude des artes , etant donnee leur implication pour la Bible, ou mAme A l'etude de cette derniere, alors que la pensee de chacun des commentateurs etait formulee dans le contexte de artes .
