Peter Abelard (1079-1142) is widely recognized as one of the most important writers of the twelfth century, famed for his skill in logic as well as his romance with Heloise. Even among Abelard's writings, the Collationes - or Dialogue between a Christian, a Philosopher, and a Jew - are remarkable for their daring and intellectual imaginativeness. Written probably c.1130, the work contains the fullest exposition of many aspects of abelard's ethics, the only statement of his unusual eschatological theory, and some of his most interesting ideas about faith and the relationship between theism and revealed religionThis is the first full critical edition of the Collationes. Based on an entirely new collation of the manuscripts, it provides a facing-page English translation, detailed notes, and an extensive historical and philosophical introduction.

Industry Reviews

Marenbon and Orlandi's superb new book in the Oxford Medieval Texts series is a critical edition with annotated translation of one of Abelard's most intriguing works. The Heythrop Journal A comprehensive and clear edition and translation, with a decent introduction, bibliography, notes and indices ... The editors work hard at explaining the nuances of the philosophical arguments in the notes to the text, and they do this well. Journal of Theological Studies The English-reading public has reason to be grateful for this elegantly translated, fully annotated and carefully introduced edition of a work that has up till now perhaps received less attention than its due.
