Evangelische Verlagsanstalt has started a series of travel guides focusing on the Protestant Reformation in German-speaking countries. Volumes on Wittenberg and Erfurt has just recently been added to the series, which is entitled “Orte der Reformation”.
Several new items were added on psychology, ethics and polics -pages. See comments for details.
I have set up a new wiki-based site on the commentaries of Peter Lombard’s Sentences. The site focuses on the texts, which are available in any electronic form on the internet, including digitized images of early printings and manuscripts, as well as modern editions in digital form. Note also the new website for Adam Wodeham Critical Edition Project.
The page “Medieval and Renaissance Psychological Sources on the Internet” has moved under this blog (see the link in the sidebar). The page also includes several new titles. From now on, additions will be noted in the comments on the page, which can be subscribed as a rss-feed.
See this blog post for more information on my lecture on the Aristotelian psychology in late medieval Erfurt.
Jussi Varkemaa, a theologian from Helsinki, has finished his doctoral thesis on late fourteenth century theologian Conrad Summenhart. The topic is Summenhart’s theory of individual rights and its medieval background. Summenhart, who was one of first professors theology in the University of Tübingen. Summenhart has been considered as an important figure in the development of modern theories of rights. Until now Summenhart’s views have been studied only superficially, but Varkemaa discusses them thoroughly and situates them appropriately in the context of late medieval discourse. For more information, see the abstract of the dissertation here (scroll down for an English version).
I have reorganised the page on medieval and Renaissance psychological sources putting the items in an alphabetical order. A link to Agostino Nifo’s De anima was also added.
