9789004115323: Food and the Body: Some Peculiar Questions in High Medieval Theology (Studien Und Texte Zur Geistesgeschichte Des Mittelalters)

Whether or not food passes into the truth of human nature" was among the questions that scholastic theologians routinely disputed. Many twelfth-century theologians, including Peter Lombard, argued that the "truth" of every human body came entirely from Adam, and that food stimulated its growth but was not incorporated into it. Parisian masters in the thirteenth-century rejected Lombard's position; some Oxford masters defended it, appealing to theories of light and prime matter. The first part of the book traces the origins of such questions in theology, medicine and natural philosophy. The second part analyzes their treatment and development in thirteenth-century theology. The study illumines theologians' opinions about reproduction, fetal development, growth, nutrition, digestion, aging, corporeal identity, matter, physical quantity, the resurrection, and the relationship between theology and the natural sciences.

Review:

'..".a masterly account...bringing a historical perspicacity and intellectual care that have been sadly lacking in some recent offerings that will reach wider audiences...No serious library of Aquinas or medieval theology should be without this book.'
Laurence Paul Hemming, "The Heythrop Journal, 2002.
'..".a seminal discussion of a debate that certainly excited medieval minds'
Norman Tanner, "Journal of Ecclesiastical History, 2002.
