Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'In this magisterial study of the life and work of St. Anselm, Sir Richard Southern provides the definitive study of one of the most complex and fascinating philosophical minds in Christian history. St Anselm brings together all the elements of a man whose intensely concentrated search for God filled all the phases and aspects of his life and work. Nothing in Anselm\'s thinking was simply ordinary or typical of his age. As Southern says: \"He touched the thought, the piety and the politics of the time at every important point; and whatever he touched looked different afterwards.\"'
