Medieval Readings of Romans by William S. Campbell

Book Description

This sixth volume of the Romans through History and Culture series consists of 14 contributions by North-American and European medievalists and Pauline scholars who discuss significant readings of Romans through the twelfth and thirteenth centuries to the eve of the Reformation. The commentaries of Abelard, William of St. Thierry, Thomas Aquinas, and Nicolas of Lyra, and the wider influence of Romans as reflected in the letters of Heloise and the works of Dante demonstrate the reception of Romans at this period. Starting with an introduction inviting the reader to into the biblical environment of the Middle Ages and suggesting the varied ways in which Paul was understood in both high clerical culture and among the people; it also offers a summary of the work done by each of the authors. This volume attests the dominant role of scripture in communal life and witnesses to the pervasive influence of Paul's letter to the Romans in the flourishing discussions on Scripture and theology.

Paul and the Creation of Christian Identity by William S. Campbell Paul and the Creation of Christian Identity, Paperback (April 2008)

Paul is traditionally viewed as separating from the churches of Peter and of Jewish Christ-followers to promote his own mission, triumphing in the creation of a church with a gentile identity. This book argues that the Pauline mission represents only one strand of the Christ-movement that should not be universalized to signify the whole.
