Synopsis: This first volume lays out all the Marian doctrines and their evolution in a clear and easy-to-follow format as well as providing two chapters on patristic and medieval devotion. (Doctrines discussed include Mary's divine motherhood and its impact on Christology; Mary's virginity -- before, during, and after the birth of Jesus; intercession and mediation, and Marian co-redemption.) It provides, for the first time, extensive citations from original works, both patristic and medieval, many of which have never appeared in English before. Thus, it gives a firsthand insight into the figure of Mary and her religious and cultural importance. The author's principal purpose is to focus on the internal dynamics of Christianity in the development of Marian doctrine and devotion so that, without pushing a Catholic or even Christian point of view, the book seeks to counter erroneous interpretations that are all too frequently found in well-known and oft-cited works.

About the Author: Brian Reynolds studied Italian at University College Dublin and did his postgraduate studies at Trinity College Dublin. He is an assistant professor in the Department of Italian Language and Culture, Fu Jen University, Taipei, where he has worked since 1998. He previously taught in Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin, and Universita' degli studi, Bari, Italy. His research in the last number of years has concentrated on early Italian poetry, especially Dante, and Mariology. He has published extensively on these topics.

Book Description New City Press, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book.

It seems to me far and away the most comprehensive survey of the origins and development of Marian theology and spirituality, at least up to the late Middle Ages, in both East and West.It is beautifully organized and developed, and the abundance of primary texts [ - ] makes it particularly helpful. It [goes] far beyond both Hilda Graef s excellent earlier history of Marian doctrine, and Georg Soll s fascicle in the Handbuch der Dogmengeschichte. Brian E. Daley, Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame A book that we have very much needed in Marian studies. Rachel Fulton, Associate Professor of Medieval History, University of Chicago Just wonderful: it has far more extensive quotations from primary sources than Hilda Graef s Mary: A History of Doctrine and Devotion, and I think it will replace her book for the period that it covers. I am already quoting from it in my own research! Sarah Jane Boss, Senior Lecturer in Theology and Religious Studies, Roehampton University, London. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9781565484498
