about this item

Medievalists with a variety of specialties introduce scholars and advanced students to some of the most important and influential ways in which medieval Christian theologians, churchmen, mendicants, masters, reformers, writers, and artists read, interpreted, represented, and otherwise engaged Job, both the scriptural book and its righteous protagonist. Looking first at exegetical and theological perspectives, then at vernacular and popular perspectives, they explore such topics as Job's sin in the Moralia of Gregory the Great, Christ and the eternal extent of divine providence in the Expositio super Iob ad litteram of Thomas Aquinas, a passionate dispute over divine providence: Albert the Great's commentary on the Book of Job, the Book of Job in Latin biblical poetry of the later middle ages, and patience on pilgrimage: Job in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.
