What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"An important and ground-breaking study which links growinginterest in Augustine and medieval philosophy with cutting edgequestions in contemporary philosophy of religion, particularlyconcerning epistemology and the 'rationality' of religion.
Janet Soskice, University of Cambridge

"In this lucidly argued and solidly documented study Schumacheruncovers the roots of problems notoriously besetting moderntheories of knowledge in conflicting medieval interpretations ofAugustine’s assumptions about knowledge as divineillumination: an intriguing thesis, which she handles with delicacyand flair."
Fergus Kerr, O.P. University of Edinburgh

"Challenges the traditional history of theories of knowledge. Abold and provocative reading."
Olivier Boulnois, Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes(University of Paris, Sorbonne)
