Commentary on Ecclesiastes

Edited by Robert J. Karris, OFM and Campion Murray, OFM

Bonaventure's Commentary on Ecclesiastes may be over 750 years old, but it will still be somewhat new under the sun to most modern commentators. Since Bonaventure is commenting on the Vulgate, the editors helpfully provide an English translation of this in the Introduction....Bonaventure's commentary was both original and very influential in the Middle Ages; it deserves to be more familiar to us today. --Michael D. Guinan, OFM, Franciscan School of Theology

Commentary on the Gospel of Luke

Part 3, Chapters 17 - 24

Edited by Robert J. Karris, OFM

Karris has produced a masterful scholarly work in this commentary. His self-conscious footing in the present, expressed through critical notes and comments, helps steer the work away from some kind of medieval fundamentalism. As a work of historical theologizing, Bonaventure's commentary is an invaluable witness to its age as well as to the biblical interpretation that was long a mainstay of Catholic hermeneutics and preaching.

Early Oxford Lecture on Individuation

Allan B. Wolter, OFM

The problem on individuation, because of its theological implications, was a particularly controversial topic in university circles in the late thirteenth century, particularly at Paris and Oxford. The Lectura text translated in this book is from the first bachelor lectures in Oxford by John Duns Scotus on theological issues occasioned by Peter Lombard's Sentences. Book Two of Peter's collection of opinions of Fathers of the Church, which served as a university textbook, began with a discussion of angels. Scotus tells us Distinction Three "treats of the personality of the angels" and it was this that prompted him to raise these six questions about the individuation of a material substance.
