In The Study of the Bible in the Middle Ages, Beryl Smalley describes the changes in the organization, technique, and purpose of the Bible sweeping north-western Europe from the Carolingian renaissance to about 1300. This was the period when the emergence of Aristotelian thought inspired medieval scholars to take a fresh look at the Scriptures. Medieval historians and students of literature will find special value in this book: they will learn, in systematic fashion, what earlier scholars have accomplished in the field of exegesis; and they will be enabled to employ the history of biblical interpretation recounted here as a mirror for the social and cultural upheavals that were taking place simultaneously.
Beryl Smalley (1905–1984) was a Fellow of St. Hilda's College, Oxford.
