Item description for Scholastic Humanism and the Unification of Europe: The Heroic Age (Scholastic Humanism and the Unification of Western Europe) (Volume II) by R. W. Southern, Lesley Smith & Benedicta Ward...
This is the second of the three volumes, focusing on the period from c.1090-1212. The volume explores the lives, scholarly resources and contributions of a wide sample of people who either took part in the creation of the scholastic system of thought or gave practical effect to it in public life. Scholars, mostly centred on Paris and Bologna, began an enterprise of unprecedented scope. Their intention was to produce a once-and-for-all body of knowledge that would be as perfect as humanity's fallen state permits, and which would provide a view of God, nature, and human conduct, promoting order in this world and blessedness in the next. This work reconsiders this enterprise, and its long-term effects on European history. The first of the three volumes examines the origins of the intellectual enterprise from around 1060 AD.
