Publisher's Description

The Medieval Theologians provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the period through an examination of the key individual theologians of the time. Chronologically arranged, it allows students to explore this crucial period when so many important theological developments took place.
  • Covers the important period from the 5th to the 16th centuries, when theology took shape as an increasingly formal subject of academic study.
  • The only book to trace developments in the field by individual theologian, rather than thematically, as is the case in other texts.
  • Provides a unique and distinctively theological perspective.
  • Written by leading authorities from around the world.

Dr Evans is a prominent member of the Church and Order Advisory Group of the Church of England and has written extensively on contemporary ecclesiological issues.

Editorial Reviews

"[This book] forms a very full introduction to medieval theology in general. Edited by a leading scholar in the field...the list alone of the other contributors assures the reader from the outset of the high quality of the scholarship. The lucidity and clarity of the presentation of the material are remarkable, and they make the book highly accessible to the general reader as well as to the specialist." Theology <!--end-->

"The present volume is a fine comprehensive introduction to medieval theology and introduces students to the major individual theologians of that period. I recommend this text as a very good introductory text. Were I teaching a course on medieval theology at the moment, I would probably list this as required reading for my students." H-Net Reviews

"The collection succeeds becuase of the substantial number of essays which are truly outstanding. Those of us who offer courses in medieval theology would do well to consider using this book alongside primary texts." Religious Studies Review

“The editor provides an extremely useful introduction [and] some very incisive lines of thought … This is an excellent addition to the series and will be a valuable introduction to the crucial formative period of Christian theology.” Australian Religious Studies Review

"It fills a considerable gap in theological literature, for I know of no other book that comes close to covering medieval theology as thoroughly as this one does." John S. Hammett, Faith & Mission

"This collection of essays is a success, for they are not perfunctory summations, but include genuine insights." Anglican Theological Review

"Evans has provided a genuinely useful introduction to a central, and yet surprisingly neglected, area of medieval studies." Ecclesiastical History
