Reviewing Dante's Theology : Volume 2, Paperback / softback Book

Reviewing Dante's Theology : Volume 2 Paperback / softback

Edited by Matthew Treherne, Claire E. Honess

Part of the Leeds Studies on Dante series


The two volumes of Reviewing Dante's Theology bring together work by a range of internationally prominent Dante scholars to assess current research on Dante's theology and to suggest future directions for research. Volume 2 considers some of the broader social, cultural and intellectual contexts for Dante's theological engagement.

The contributors discuss the relationship between theology and poetry as Dante sees and presents it; Dante's thought on the nature of the Church; the ways in which liturgical practice helped shape the poet's work; the links between Dante's political and theological ideas; the importance of preaching in Dante's context; the ways in which the notion of virtue connects theological and ethical thought in Dante's works; and the extent to which Dante's often surprising, groundbreaking work tests medieval notions of orthodoxy.

Each essay offers an overview of its topic and opens up new avenues.
