9789004226876: Leo the Great and the Spiritual Rebuilding of a Universal Rome (Brill's Paperback Collection)

Leo the Great was a major figure of the late Roman world whose life and work were profoundly intertwined with the political crisis of his day. As the western empire gradually succumbed to the advancing barbarian kingdoms, Leo understood that the papacy needed to expand its authority in order for the church to survive the demise of the political system. This book argues that his achievement was to transform the church not only in the practical level of administrative organization, but in the more fluid realm of thought and idea. The secular Rome that was crumbling was replaced with a Christian, universal Rome that he fashioned by infusing his theology with humanitarian ideals. Originally published in hardcover.

Review:

'"The great virtue of this book is its exceptionally detailed treatment of so many facets of Leo's world and its attempt to link theology and social history....the book will attract specialists in Leo as well as students of the early rise of the papacy... The work witnesses to immense erudition and research, and will be a valuable addition ao any research library."' Michael C. McCarthy, S.J., "Journal of Early Christian Studies," 2009 "'Somit gebuhrt hier besprochene Veroffentlichung[...] das Verdienst, diesen auf den ersten Blick moglicherweise etwas langweiligen und wenig originellen Papst in ein neues LIcht gestellt und seine Christologie in eienem grosseren Kontext des spatantiken Christentums beleuchtet zu haben."' Katharina Greschat, "Theologische Rundschau," Dezember 2010"
