'This book is a major contribution to the intellectual history of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. It is full of new and exciting observations, engagingly written in a manner that is accessible to general readers with an interest in medieval culture as well as specialists.' William J. Courtenay, Hilldale Professor and Charles Homer Haskins Professor Emeritus of History, University of Wisconsin, Madison 'Ian Wei rises admirably to the huge challenge of explaining medieval theology to a modern lay audience, making extensive use of original sources in translation while anchoring them firmly in their historical context in an accessible and systematic manner. This master-class in expository analysis will become an indispensable introduction to a central aspect of medieval thought.' Peter Denley, Queen Mary, University of London 'With imaginative insight, clarity, and judicious scholarship, Ian Wei captures the very spirit of the masters and students in the schools of medieval Paris. Wei conveys the sheer excitement of what it was like to think, study, and teach in the early university. The masters brought a moral intensity to reflecting on their own social roles within the university and as communicators with a wider public. This is a book that will welcome any reader interested in the genealogies of our modern institutions.' Rita Copeland, University of Pennsylvania
