Overview

Over the last twenty years, increasing attention has been given to the interpretation of St. Paul in the Middle Ages. This is one of the first scholarly volumes to look broadly at the understanding and use of Paul in medieval Europe. It focuses not only on the interpretation of the Apostle by patristic and medieval exegetes, but also on the use of his teachings by church reformers, canon lawyers, and spiritual teachers, and his portrayal in art and vernacular literature and culture. By bringing together both exegetical studies of Pauline interpretation with explorations of newer themes, this book provides a more complete view of the medieval Paul than has previously been available.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The essays are informative and of a high quality; they should be of use to both scholars and students working in the field of medieval Pauline exegesis and its influence."
John T. Slotemaker, Fairfield University. In: Religious Studies Review, Vol. 39, No. 4 (December 2013), pp. 276-277.

‘’The editor and authors of this volume are to be congratulated on assembling a collection of essays that will serve as an indispensable resource for students and scholars working on the history of Pauline interpretation’’.
David C. Fink, Furman University. In: Sixteenth Century Journal, Vol. 44, No. 4, 2013, p. 1083.

"Un guide extrêmement utile pour suivre et comprendre l’influence de saint Paul dans l’Antiquité tardive et au Moyen Âge, entre l’époque patristique et la scolastique tardive. Loin de se limiter à la théologie et à l’exégèse scripturaire, l’enquête a été élargie à des domaines divers, tels que la spiritualité, l’histoire de l’art, l’iconographie, la littérature et la prédication ..... le volume édité par Cartwright constitue un instrument scientifiquement solide, qui permettra non seulement d’avoir un regard d’ensemble sur la figure de saint Paul au Moyen Âge, mais aussi d’engager de nouvelles recherches".
Iacopo Costa. In: Revue des sciences philosophiques et théologiques 97 (2014) 189-191.
