Book Description

The articles in this volume fall into two main groups, the one dealing with secular learning and especially grammar and logic, the other with biblical scholarship, while the final articles look at the work of particular scholars. Margaret Gibson, however, would see them all as closely interrelated. Scholars in the Latin West, from the end of Antiquity right through the 12th century, were united in the belief that all knowledge, if true, was compatible and that sapientia was one and coherent. In the same way, she would hold, it is impossible to study only the ’artes’ given their implication for Bible, nor only Bible, when every commentator thought within the context of the ’artes’. Les articles contenus dans ce volume se divisent en deux catégories principales: la première traitant du savoir séculaire et, plus particulièrement, de la grammaire et de la logique; la seconde s’attachant au savoir biblique avec, pour finir, un nombre d’articles examinant l’oeuvre de certains érudits. Margaret Gibson considère toutes ces études comme étant interdépendantes. Les érudits de l’Occident latin, de la fin de l’Antiquité à celle du 12e siècle, étaient unis dans la conviction que toutes connaissances véridiques étaient compatibles entre elles et que la sapience formait un tout cohérent. Par là même, l’auteur maintient qu’il est impossible de s’adonner uniquement à l’étude des artes, étant donnée leur implication pour la Bible, ou même à l’étude de cette dernière, alors que la pensée de chacun des commentateurs était formulée dans le contexte de artes.
