Reading Augustine in the Reformation

The Flexibility of Intellectual Authority in Europe, 1500-1620

Arnoud S. Q. Visser

Oxford Studies in Historical Theology

  • Systematically grounds Augustine's theological reception in the history of reading and the material culture of books and manuscripts
  • Not restricted to a particular confessional party or specific geographic boundaries, but offers a cross-confessional account of Augustine's appropriation in early modern Europe
  • Contributes to a more advanced understanding of the nature of intellectual authority in the early modern period
