On the Shoulders of Giants: Essays in Honor of Glenn W. Olsen

On the Shoulders of Giants: Essays in Honor of Glenn W. Olsen Papers in Mediaeval Studies

Papers in Mediaeval Studies 27. xii, 262 pp. 2015. ISBN 978-0-88844-827-9 • Cloth • $90

The allusion in the title to the dwarf on the shoulders of the giant underscores the central themes of this collection: the debt each generation owes to the intellectual achievements of those that precede it, the continuous interpenetration between the present and the past, and the place of tradition as well as change and renewal in culture and history. The topos is particularly apt for this volume, for it allows students and colleagues to express their own distinctive debts to Glenn W. Olsen, a formidable scholar, respected advisor, and cherished friend.

The Aristotelian Tradition: Aristotle’s Works on Logic and Metaphysics and Their Reception in the Middle Ages

Edited by
Börje Bydén and Christina Thomsen Thörnqvist

The Aristotelian Tradition: Aristotle’s Works on Logic and Metaphysics and Their Reception in the Middle Ages Papers in Mediaeval Studies

Papers in Mediaeval Studies 28. 2017. viii, 395 pp. ISBN 978-0-88844-828-6 • Cloth • $95

While this volume amply illustrates the set of scholarly approaches characteristic of the “Copenhagen School of Medieval Philosophy” (notably a strong philological foundation and an interest in ancient as well as medieval and Greek as well as Latin texts), its thematic diversity reflects a great breadth of interests. What unites the collection in this respect is simply a concern with different historical manifestations of Aristotelian thought on logical and metaphysical matters.

From Learning to Love: Schools, Law, and Pastoral Care in the Middle Ages
Essays in Honour of Joseph W. Goering Papers in Mediaeval Studies

Papers in Mediaeval Studies 29. 2017. xlviii, 776 pp. + 13 plates. ISBN 978-0-88844-829-3 • Cloth • $110

The essays in this volume show how the teaching of law and theology in the medieval schools was part of a pastoral project to foster a just Christian society and to lead souls to contemplation of God. With subjects ranging from scholastic debates about divine simplicity to disputes between parishioners over their reputations, these studies take us across Europe, from the eleventh to the fifteenth centuries, although the heart of the volume covers England and northern France in the decades around 1200.
