It is this quest for a synthesis of faith and reason that guided the medieval thinkers and is the unifying thread running through this book. Readers follow as the Roman world of thought gives way to a Christian world whose philosophy builds on that of Greeks and Romans. That early phase in turn yields to the era of the monastic and cathedral schools, where Christian learning was nurtured until the rise of the universities. In that high flowering, the encounter with Jewish and Arabic thought brought a new energy that issued not only in the work of great masters like Thomas and Bonaventure but also in a flowering of mysticism. Along the way, the great controversies of the era sparked new thinking and new learning, as suppressions of thought proved only temporary setbacks and correctives on the way to greater understanding.
Matthew OConnells translation is masterful. Readers will be captivated as much by his lucid and readable English as by DOnofrios clear presentation. It is a work of great merit that should be on the shelf, and frequently in the hand, of everyone who is at all curious about how human beings in the past, as in the present, have sought to understand the faith that is in them.
The history of theology presented here is meant to be a history of the whole of Catholic Christian theology, from which the Second Vatican Council has served as both a point of arrival and a point of departure. The authors provide a history of theology that covers the twenty centuries of theological thought beginning with biblical revelation. They focus on the word "theology" and its accepted meaning and offer a careful history that shows what "theology" meant in successive periods periods that must be seen for what they are in light of the faith journeys and cultural itineraries they represent and for their influence on our lives today.
History of Theology will be published in multiple volumes. Volumes cover the entire age of patristic theology from the first to the seventh centuries, medieval and renaissance theology from the late eighth to the fourteenth centuries, and the period from the Council of Trent to the twentieth century. Translated from Italian,this scholarly work is carefully organized and annotated. Text and chronological tables are included along with a list of abbreviations and a topical index.
