Item description for Vela Veritatis: Hermeneutik, Wissen und Sprache in der Intellectual History des 12. Jahrhunderts (Studien und Texte zur Geistesgeschichte des Mittelalters, 85) (German Edition) by Frank Bezner...

This study analyses the complex role played by the concept of a 'veiled truth' (integumentum) in the intellectual culture of the Twelfth Century.

Eight chapters examine the concept in theological texts and milieux (e.g. Peter Abelard, Bernard of Clairvaux, Gilbert of Poitiers); in natural philosophy (William of Conches); in literary commentaries and literary theory; in literature (Bernard Silvester, Alan of Lille); and in methodological discussions of the Artes sermocinales and language (John of Salisbury).

Key questions implied (and discussed) include: 12th-century reflections on the limits of human rationality; the impact of 12th-century methodological discussions for the evolution of Scholasticism; the nature and scope of medieval literary theory and hermeneutics; the importance of an interdisciplinary intellectual history for the understanding of medieval thought.

Readership: All those interested in intellectual history, the philosophical, theological, literary culture of the 12th century, Medieval Latin, the history of allegory and medieval literary theory, as well as literary theorists.
