Publisher's Description


Originally published in French as Exégèse médiévale, Henri de Lubac's multivolume study of medieval exegesis and theology has remained one of the most significant works of modern biblical studies. Available now for the first time in English, this long-sought-after volume is an essential addition to the library of those whose study leads them into the difficult field of biblical interpretation.

The first volume in de Lubac's multivolume work begins his comprehensive historical and literary study of the way Scripture was interpreted by the church of the Latin Middle Ages.

Examining the prominent commentators of the Middle Ages and their texts, de Lubac discusses the medieval approach to biblical interpretation that sought "the four senses" of Scripture, especially the dominant practice of attempting to uncover Scripture's allegorical meaning. Though Bible interpreters from the Enlightenment era on have criticized such allegorizing as part of the "naivete of the Middle Ages," de Lubac insists that a full understanding of this ancient Christian exegesis provides important insights for us today.

Author Bio

(1896-1991) A leading figure in twentieth-century RomanCatholicism. He was named a cardinal by Pope John Paul IIin the mid-1980s.

Editorial Reviews

New Oxford Review
"A sustained, thorough, and passionate defense of the traditional biblical exegesis used consistently in the Catholic Church until the 20th century. . . Medieval Exegesis, though written in the 1950s, is, if anything, even more timely and urgent today than it was four decades ago. Anyone interested in acquiring a deeper understanding of the Old Testament will benefit for a careful reading of this book."

Religious Studies Review
"Historical theologians will welcome the appearance in English translation of volume 1 of de Lubac's foundational study of the history and character of medieval biblical interpretation. . . De Lubac inspired closer scholarly attention to the history of exegesis and revolutionized the history of Christian thought by demonstrating that much of the history of theology was in fact the history of the interpretation of the Bible. . . This translation provides a much-needed secondary text for courses in the history of precritical exegesis . . . and provides historical theologians whose fields of specialty lie outside the medieval era with a handy and extremely useful discussion of this key aspect of the history of Christian thought, complete with detailed references to the primary sources."

America
"Magnificent. . . One can only stand in awe at de Lubac's learning and theological sensitivity."

    July 25, 2001
    R. K. McGregor Wright
    At last this superb study of how the Bible was interpreted during the Middle Ages (by Cardinal de Lubac) is being translated from the French. As a Protestant, I'm especially intrigued by the question of how the Catholic Church treated the Bible before the Reformation, and this detailed and brilliantly defended Catholic explanation of the rise and consolidation of the famous "four-fold sense" of the Bible explains all !! De Lubac is totally honest and thoroughly acquainted with the vast body of mediaeval texts unavailable to moderns like me, and each page is filled with illustrative quotes from the sources. The notes in Vol I occupy a third of the volume and are at least as interesting as the body of the book, which I found so fascinating I could hardly put it down. Although I do not agree with the notion of a "fourfold sense," being able to see how it developed historically and was used in preaching and commenting on Scripture, is an adventure in itself, and shows how the Catholic preacher could find things originating outside the Bible, in the texts he wanted to teach them from. I'm thrilled too, that Vol. II is now available, and I'll just HAVE to find the $36 for the (discount) price SOMEHOW.... The only reason I gave it less than a five-star rating is because I hold to the usual Protestant "single primary sense" view. It's really worth five stars as books go...., but I'm just finicky, that's all. This is a truly superb study, and should be read carefully by any Protestant who is interested in how the Bible had been understood in the more distant past. It is truly basic to understanding the historic relationship between the Bible and Tradition in the evolution of Catholic thought.
