This book is more than a survey of key medieval thinkers (from Augustine to the late-medieval period); it is an invitation to think along with major theologians and explore how their thought can deeply challenge some of todays modern and post-modern key assumptions.

From the New Testament to the Council of Trent. Liturgy, Worship and Society. Aquinas's views by explaining the institutional and intellectual context in which the disputed questions were debated.

This is a book on Christian theology, not a comparative religions text, but it does cover the main branches of Christianity, looking at modern theology based upon personality, geography, and theological approach. The first section examines the lives and work of some of the most significant theological voices to dominate the century, most of whom were European (no surprise, given the dominance of the European voices in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries as well).

Medieval theology, in all its diversity, was radically theo-centric, Trinitarian, Scriptural and sacramental. It also operated with a profound view of human understanding (in terms of intellectus rather than mere ratio). In a post-modern climate, in which the modern views on 'autonomous reason' are increasingly being questioned, it may prove fruitful to re-engage with pre-modern thinkers who, obviously, did not share our modern and post-modern presuppositions. Their different perspective does not antiquate their thought, as some of the 'cultured despisers' of medieval thought might imagine. On the contrary, rather than rendering their views obsolete it makes them profoundly challenging and enriching for theology today. This book is more than a survey of key medieval thinkers (from Augustine to the late-medieval period); it is an invitation to think along with major theologians and explore how their thought can deeply challenge some of today's modern and post-modern key assumptions.

Kulasius
Great survey of medieval theology.

Ganthisc
A clearly explained and largely sympathetic introduction to various medieval theological figures and, to a lesser extent, the overall context and debates of medieval theology.

In his Introduction to Medieval Theology Rk Van Nieuwenhove has managed to offer an accessible introduction to Medieval Theology while never dodging the more intricate issues from the time. As such the reader is guaranteed to develop a broad knowledge while also engaging the sophisticated depths.
Van Nieuwenhove is able to achieve this by harnessing vast amounts of recent scholarship into the chapters. Outdated narratives about Trinitarian dichotomies between East and West or about Aquinas' lack of dependence on scripture and revelation are nowhere to be found. Coupled with this first class up to the minute scholarship, we see Van Nieuwenhove's real gift for teaching on every page. Metaphors unpacking very difficult theological concepts are offered, perhaps fashioned in classroom situations, that can make complex ideas coherent for students. An example is on page 66 where Van Nieuwenhove looks at Eriugena's idea (shared with Gregory of Nyssa) that creation allows for divine self comprehension. He compares it to how an undefinable mood can be expressed and then witnessed when we, for example, play the piano giving sound to that which was partially obscured, even to ourselves. With such images (and their are countless examples) Van Nieuwenhove shows a capacity to illustrate the relationship between God and the world manifesting the technical finesse and care that the medieval theologians do but through helpful and relatable images rather than dense and technical language.
Through great scholarship and brilliant pedagogical gifts Van Nieuwenhove is able to broadly introduce Medieval theology while also giving life to the subtle nuances therein that make it delightful and relevant.
As such every teacher would benefit tremendously form this book. It is comprehensive, nuanced and accessible.
Finally the book is offered in such a way as to present the significance of the ideas explored. Van Nieuwenhove offers them not by virtue of their similarity to our thinking today but in that PRECISELY because of their difference they can challenge our worldview and shake us from the safe stagnation of modern assumptions. As such, students, teachers and those interested in theology owe Rik Van Nieuwenhove significant gratitude for this brilliant book.
