Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Throughout his academic career Robert Crouse has insisted that the patristic and medieval philosophical and theological traditions, which have so profoundly shaped western culture, cannot be understood apart from the subtle and complex dialogue between Christianity and Hellenic culture out of which these traditions emerged. In this volume in Father Crouse's honour, twenty-two eminent scholars from across North America and Europe examine various moments within the emergence of the doctrine of creation in the patristic and medieval periods, the Hebraic and Hellenic pre-history of this movement, as well as modern reactions to the partristic and medieval syntheses. Student and specialist alike will appreciate not only the depth of scholarly research clearly evident in the individual essays, but also the broad scope of the volume as a whole. Contributors include: Stephen Andrews, Stephen F. Brown, Mary T. Clark, RSCJ, Kevin Corrigan, Lawrence Dewan, Robert Dodaro, OSA, Wayne J. Hankey, Walter A. Hannam, Michael Harrington, Paige E. Hochschild, Dennis House, Edouard Jeauneau, Angus Johnston, Torrance Kirby, Terence J. Kleven, Marguerite Kussmaul, Matthew L. Lamb, D. Gregory MacIsaac, Ralph McInerny, Luca Obertello, Willemien Otten, Neil G. Robertson, Horst Seidl, and Michael Treschow.

Book News Annotation:

Students, friends, and colleagues of Canadian scholar Crouse present essays on such topics as Old Testament teaching on necessity in creation and its implication for the doctrine of atonement, the simple bodies as unities of quantity and quality in Aristotle's On Generation and Corruption, King Alfred's imagery of Wisdom's Land in the preface to his translation of Augustine's Soliloquies, the place of natural and necessary emanation in Aquinas' doctrine of creation, and eternal law as the fountain of laws in Richard Hooker's Ecclesiastical Polity.
