Series Information
The Bible in Medieval Tradition

Description: Galatians is the inaugural volume in an exciting new commentary series, The Bible in Medieval Tradition, which seeks to reconnect today's Christians with a rich history of biblical interpretation. In this book Ian Christopher Levy has brought together commentaries on Paul's Epistle to the Galatians written by six medieval theologians spanning the ninth to the fourteenth centuries. Levy provides clear, readable translations of these significant texts ó which have never before been available in English or, in most cases, any modern language. He sets these works in historical and theological context through his in-depth introduction, locating each author within the broad sweep of medieval scholarship. These remarkable Medieval commentaries, written from a deep and pervasive faith, aimed not only to increase knowledge but, more vitally, to enhance and deepen Christian belief and piety ó an object of everlasting relevance to the Church.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Galatians, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, History of Interpretation
