Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this book Professor Morris presents a scholarly reappraisal of the origins of a concept which we have come to take for granted as an essential attribute of Western Christian society, that of the individual. He traces this back to the rich, mobile civilization of medieval Europe in the twelfth century. It is perhaps surprising that, in spite of the many specialized works have contributed to our understanding of medieval civilization, so many misconceptions persist about its character.

Synopsis:

Colin Morris traces the origin of the concept of the individual, not to the Renaissance where it is popularly assumed to have been invented, but farther back, to the spirituality and intellectually dynamic world of Europe in the twelfth century. First published in 1972.

Synopsis:

Originally published by The Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1972.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 179-181) and index.
