This first book to consider the rise of translation as part of a broader history of critical discourses from classical Rome to the late Middle Ages sheds light on the crucial role of translation in the development of vernacular European culture.

Industry Reviews

'This very intelligent and densely argued book ... will be of value to any mediaevalist concerned with textuality and interpretation, and to any non-mediaevalist with an interest in rhetoric, hermeneutics or translation.' Medium Aevum '... a definitive and comprehensive study of translation theory and practice in the Middle Ages.' Literature and Theology '... an important work likely to inspire and to frame many discussions of translation in the future ... a work of considerable learning, fine discrimination, and critical ambition.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
