9780631131687: The Study of the Bible in the Middle Ages

In The Study of the Bible in the Middle Ages, Beryl Smalley describes the changes in the organization, technique, and purpose of the Bible sweeping north-western Europe from the Carolingian renaissance to about 1300. This was the period when the emergence of Aristotelian thought inspired medieval scholars to take a fresh look at the Scriptures. Medieval historians and students of literature will find special value in this book: they will learn, in systematic fashion, what earlier scholars have accomplished in the field of exegesis; and they will be enabled to employ the history of biblical interpretation recounted here as a mirror for the social and cultural upheavals that were taking place simultaneously.
