Commentary on Samuel and Kings. Expositio hystorica in Librum Regum.
paperback, 230 p., 156 x 234 mm, english. ISBN 9782503531557. Andrew of St Victor (? 1175) was an exegete of a rare quality who set out to expound Scripture according to its literal sense, guided by the examples of Jerome and Hugh of St Victor. The books of Samuel and Kings had a great influence on the spirituality and theology of the Middle Ages. To the medieval mind, they were more than just historical accounts; they attested to an important period in God?s dealings with this world, when interpreted typologically, they could also relate to other periods in the history of salvation. Yet before such higher spiritual wisdom could be attained, students at the school of St Victor first had to study the Scriptural texts at the most basic level of allegoresis: their historical, or literal, sense. The Commentary on Samuel and Kings offers such a literal explanation and gives an opportunity to study Andrew at work: as a critical researcher, who used concepts of grammar, literary theory, and science to elucidate the text and who made Jewish exegesis available to Christian scholarship, and as a compiler. His meticulous scholarship on the literal sense of Scripture formed an important component of the curriculum of the school at St Victor, where thorough learning was seen as a preparation for mystical knowledge and spiritual understanding. The source text of this volume appeared in the series Corpus Christianorum Continuatio Mediaeualis as Andreas de Sancto Victore - Expositio hystorica in librum Regum (CCCM 53A). References to the corresponding pages of the edition are provided in the margins of this translation. Frans van Liere holds a Ph.D. in medieval studies from Groningen University and is Professor of History at Calvin College (USA). His critical edition of Andrew of St Victor's Commentary on Samuel and Kings (Corpus Christianorum, Continuatio Mediaeualis 53A) appeared in 1996. 0 g. Codice inventario libreria 31314
