The Christology of Anselm of Canterbury analyses the theology of one of the most influential thinkers of the Christian Church, whose intellectual heritage still generates a lively debate between secular and Christian thinkers today. Focusing on Anselm's theology, this book seeks to prove that Anselm's interpretation of the life and work of Christ lies at the very heart of his work. Deme's treatise presents a modern critical account of the works of this twelfth-century thinker, presenting Anselm in a confessionally open manner, suitable for a reader with minimum experience of Medieval studies or dogmatics. This is the first attempt to present Anselm's Christology in a comprehensive single volume.

About the Author:

Daniel Deme,

Review:

'This book promises to make an important contribution to theological scholarship. The significance of Anselm in the history of western Christian thought is beyond dispute. Deme focuses directly on Anselm's Christology and its implications for the rest of his thought, and Deme convinces me that Christology is the true centre of Anselm's theology and that the lens of Christology illuminates Anselm's theological contribution as a whole.' Andrew Wright, Director, Centre for Theology, Religion and Culture, King's College London, UK 'An important contribution to Anselmian studies. Dr Deme presents an entirely fresh and original approach and has written in a manner to engage readers.' Gillian R. Evans, University of Cambridge, UK 'Anselm, one of the most influential thinkers of the Christian church, is here portrayed by one who obviously is not only well versed in his thought and method by also holds a warm reverence and regard for this Catholic theological thinker... This is a significant contribution to the theological study of one of the Christian church's greatest minds. Deme's book is an impressive and comprehensive study that deserves a place on the shelves of all theological libraries.' Theological Book Review 'This brilliant study is a solid and thoughtful revisiting of the central theme in Anselm's theology, showing its relevance for today.' Theology 'Deme's excellent systematic reading of Anselm of Canterbury is a successful attempt to invite the great medieval thinker back into contemporary discussion... this is an extremely statisfying work... It is a welcome addition to contemporary theology and an illustration of how much there is still to be learned from some of the great Christian thinkers of history.' International Journal of Systematic Theology 'There is an awful lot in this book and it is worthwhile reading, particularly for graduate students and specialists.' Reviews in Religion and Theology 'Deme's study is to be recommended for showing how it is still possible to bring fresh light to bear on writings that we too easily think have already been understood.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History 'Dr Daniel Deme [...] does much to counter the many prevalent misconceptions of Anselm's Christology and soteriology, and so re-establishes him as one of the leading theologians of the Middle Ages... Deme has written a very important and helpful work on Anselm...' The Expository Times 'Deme gives a very sympathetic and careful reading of St. Anselm's writings regarding one of the central themes of perhaps the greatest speculative theologian ever to follow the Rule of St. Benedict. That in itself would make the book a worthwhile contribution. What makes it more interesting is the Reformed or Calvinist perspective from which Deme approaches his subject. For someone familiar with Anselm, reading Deme's book is like listening to a stranger describe a mutual friend.' American Benedictine Review 'Daniel Deme's book [...], a thorough analysis of the great Archbishop's thought from a Protestant point of view, rediscovers an Anselm who is indispensable for theological thinking today... Deme succeeds in providing a clear and yet thorough account of Anselm's theology... it is a stimulating and careful piece of scholarship...' Reformed Theological Review 'Among this work's merits is the care with which Deme has read the complete range of Anselm's writings in order to produce chapters on each of the relevant traditional headings of dogmatic theology.' Journal of Theological Studies
