Review Quotes
"One of the major challenges facing medieval scholars is the dearth of critical editions of key texts. Robert Grosseteste and His Intellectual Milieu goes a long way towards remedying this situation, providing an excellent Latin edition and translation of De luce , among others. Better yet, it does so in a setting of essays that illuminate the true extent of Grosseteste's influence both in his own time and into the early modern period. Addressing such diverse topics as free will, human dignity, evangelical poverty, and natural philosophy, the contributors to this volume - among the very best in the field - present a variety of philosophical, theological, and historical perspectives that broaden and enhance the 'received wisdom' about the Bishop of Lincoln. Medievalists and Grosseteste specialists alike will appreciate the welcome addition to our understanding of this major figure." -Christina Van Dyke, Calvin College
