Item description for The Language and Logic of the Bible: The Earlier Middle Ages by G. R. Evans & Gillian R. Evans...
Overview Learning in the Middle Ages had the purpose of making it possible to understand the Bible better. This study looks at the assumptions within which Western Bible students from Augustine through the 12th century approached their reading and developed more refined critical methods.
Publishers Description All the apparatus of learning in the earlier Middle Ages had the ultimate purpose - at least in principle - of making it possible to understand the Bible better. The fathers laid foundations on which their successors built for 1000 years and more and which helped to form and direct the principles of modern criticism. This study looks at the assumptions within which students of the Bible in the West approached their reading, from Augustine to the end of the 12th century, when new skills in grammar and logic made it possible to develop more refined critical methods and to apply fresh tools to the task.
