Beatific Enjoyment in Medieval Scholastic Debates : The Complex Legacy of Saint Augustine and Peter Lombard Paperback / softback
Beatific Enjoyment in Medieval Scholastic Debates traces the reception of Saint Augustine's concept of beatific enjoyment (fruitio beatifica) in Peter Lombard's Sentences.
It identifies the main themes and problems which shaped the discussion of the concept in thirteenth- and fourteenth-century scholastic commentaries.
Bringing together theological and scientific approaches to the idea of enjoyment, Severin Kitanov exposes the intricacy of the discourse and develops a new perspective for students and scholars.
