About this item

Until the 11th century, people living in the Christian West used Gregory the Great's Seven Cardinal Sins as their compass for moral conduct, rather than the Ten Commandments, which, after all, concerned Jews not Christians. Historians of the Middle Ages explore the subsequent history of the Old Testament Decalogue through the Middle Ages. Among their topics are whether the Ten Commandments in the Medieval schools represented conformity or diversity, loving neighbor before God: the First Commandment in early modern lyric poetry, the Ten Commandments and pastoral care in late-Medieval and Early Modern Europe: an inquiry into expectation and outcomes, Latin mnemonic verses combining the Ten Commandments with the Ten Plagues of Egypt transmitted in late Medieval Bohemia, and man and God: the first three commandments in the Polish Catholic catechisms of the 1560s-1570s. Most of the 11 essays were first presented at an April 2014 conference in Ghent, Belgium. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
