Series: Great Theologians
- 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.
"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
