about

Taking a medieval approach in content as well as in form—a compilation of lists—this volume creates a foundation for the study of the medieval mindset by establishing the terms and concepts that scholars would have had in a common at the time: an invaluable lingua franca. With a pedagogical appeal, this interdisciplinary book is a combination text, reference, and popular work that provides a fascinating intellectual history of the Middle Ages while complimenting the study of other works from that period.

James Grote is a development officer, an award-winning financial journalist, and periodically an adjunct professor of philosophy for several universities in the Louisville, Kentucky, area as well as for the Abbey of Gethsemani. He is the coauthor of Clever as Serpents: Business Ethics and Office Politics and Theology and Technology.

Editorial Reviews

Elegantly informative! I discovered things in Grote's text that I have often simply presumed, yet had no way to verify. The introductory chapter is a gem while the remainder of the book executes a Herculean task with grace and deftness. Medieval Literacy is a useful tool for students and professors alike." David Burrell, PhD, Hesburgh professor emeritus in philosophy and theology, University of Notre Dame"A perfect accompaniment to such commonly assigned texts as Dante's Inferno, Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy, Jean de Meun's Romance of the Rose, any of the Arthurian works, anything by Chaucer, and even Renaissance texts such as Castiglione's The Courtier and much of Shakespeare." James Lynch, PhD, department of Spanish and Portuguese, Indiana University
