Overview

The Medieval Theologians provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the period through an examination of the key individual theologians of the time. Chronologically arranged, it allows students to explore this crucial period when so many important theological developments took place.

  • Covers the important period from the 5th to the 16th centuries, when theology took shape as an increasingly formal subject of academic study.
  • The only book to trace developments in the field by individual theologian, rather than thematically, as is the case in other texts.
  • Provides a unique and distinctively theological perspective.
  • Written by leading authorities from around the world.
