This volume provides a brief and accessible introduction to the 9th-century philosopher and theologian John Scottus Eriugena, who was perhaps the most important philosophical thinker to appear in Latin Christendom in the period between Augustine and Anselm. Eriugena was known as the interpreter of Greek thought to the Latin West, particularly as teacher to Frankish emperor Charles the Bald, and this book emphasizes the relation of Eriugena's thought to his Greek and Latin sources, while also looking at his speculative philosophy.

Industry Reviews

Dierdre Carabine analyzes very well Eriugena's fourfold division of nature into that which creates and is not created; that which is created and creates; that which is created and does not create; and that which is not created and does not create. [Her] writing is clear, concise, and un-obtrusive. I strongly recommend the book..."--Theological Studies
