Pride According to Gregory the Great a Study of the Moralia
|Author: ||Baasten, Matthew|
Examines the ethical teachings of Gregory the Great and demonstrates the degree of continuity in medieval theology by discussing the influence of Augustine on Gregory and then Gregory on Thomas Aquinas.
"Although Gregory's thought deeply influenced subsequent Christian thinking, it is surprising how rare are monographs on Gregory's theology -- a fact that makes the present solid and workmanlike study a welcome addition to Gregorian literature." - ADRIS
"This is a thoroughly pleasant and informative essay. . . . Focusing strictly on what Gregory understood by pride, Baasten succeeds, thanks to his careful analysis, in introducing the reader to the core of Gregorian spirituality. . . . deserves to be welcomed by students of patristics, by medievalists, and by any historian of Christian ethics." - Journal of the American Academy of Religion
