Product Description

Medieval Theology is marked by many complexities. The theologians and major thinkers in this era developed their thought in many complicated ways, often within the confines of a rigid scholasticism. Most notably, this included one of the church's greatest theologians Thomas Aquinas. Theology in Medieval times was the center of all thinking, and finding one's way through the many and complex theological ideas introduced this era can be, for those of a modern mindset, very difficult. Often ridiculed as a historical epoch, the Westminster Handbook on Medieval Theology helps us to realize that the period was not marked by ignorance and poverty, but by a mysterious beauty of theological thinking and worldviews-which dominated culture-focused on the contemplation of God. This accessible reference work provides an extensive guide to the main theological features theology. Author James Ginther provides clear and compelling discussions of major Christian thinkers, socio-cultural developments, and key terms and concepts related to the period. Both students and scholars will find this an eminently useful resource for the study of medieval theology
