About-

In the first part of this intriguing study, McNally treats the complex social, intellectual, and theological factors that affected biblical interpretation in the early medieval period. In the second part he provides a classified bibliography of commentaries from the period.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The historian of dogma will neither correctly evaluate nor fully understand the biblical literature of this period (650-1000) if he neglects the many contemporary complexities which influenced it. The religious life, the ascetical ideals, the library system, the theological education, the monastic scriptoria, the illuminated manuscrits, the Latin text of the Bible, the patristic literature, and other similar factors are important elements in the study of the medieval interpretation of Scripture. The ethos of the early medieval Bible commentaries depends on a manifold number of viewpoints and can only be discovered in the cadre of many complex relations."
