Originally published in French as Exégèse médiévale, Henri de Lubac's multivolume study of medieval exegesis and theology has remained one of the most significant works of modern biblical studies. Available now for the first time in English, this long-sought-after second volume of Medieval Exegesis, translated by E. M. Macierowski, advances the effort to make de Lubac's major study accessible to the widest possible audience.
Religious Studies Review
"A foundational study of the history and character of medieval biblical interpretation."
New Oxford Review
"Medieval Exegesis is even more timely and urgent today than it was four decades ago."
"Magnificent. . . One can only stand in awe at de Lubac's learning and theological sensitivity."
Glenn W. Olsen
"Medieval Exegesis is one of the great achievements of twentieth-century scholarship."
Joseph T. Lienhard, S.J.
"The publication in English of Henri de Lubac's Medieval Exegesis is an epochal event."
Theological Studies
"This fine translation brings into English de Lubac's second volume, the conclusion of part 1 of Medieval Exegesis. . . de Lubac's call to read the Bible as an evangelical enterprise is striking in the light of the peregrinations of biblical scholarship at the cusp of the 21st century. . . It will be very interesting to see what the availability of this important work in English translation will mean to Catholic-Protestant theological dialogue in the new millennium."
