Reviews

“. . . brings together essays that will aid scholars and students of Anselm both to locate him better within his historical context and to rethink his role in the history of philosophy and contemporary philosophy. . . . throughout, the writing is accessible and thus the volume will prove beneficial both to Anselm scholars and to those approaching Anselm for the first time.” – Thomas Hibbs

“It was a great pleasure to read the volume Saint Anselm, His Origins and Influence. . . among collected volumes I have examined in recent years, this one seems to have a theme which is especially well chosen and elegantly presented. The contributions are presentations given at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire, the first being by one of the leading authorities in the world of modern Anselmian studies, G. R. Evans of Cambridge University. . . . this is a volume that will delight, inform, and inspire.” – Stephen Gersh
