“Mary Brennan’s translation is as helpful as her foreword. The rendition into English of Madec’s text from the Corpus Christianorum is careful. The book is elegantly produced and a delight to read.” —The Medieval Review

Treatise on Divine Predestination is one of the early writings of the author of the great philosophical work Periphyseon (On the Division of Nature), Johannes Scottus (the Irishman), known as Eriugena (died c. 877 A.D.). It contributes to the age-old debate on the question of human destiny in the present world and in the afterlife.

Mary Brennan was for eighteen years researcher and archivist at the Society for the Promotion of Eriugenian Studies, located at that time at University College Dublin. Her publications in this field since 1977 include Guide des Etudes Erigéniennes, A Bibliography of Publications in the Field of Eriugenian Studies, 1800–1975, and Materials for the Biography of Johannes Scottus Eriugena.
