"No one, in a word, could be better equipped than Sir Richard Southern to tackle a general characterization of scholasticism. This is what he now offers under the title 'Scholastic Humanism and the Unification of Europe.'...An author who writes as beautifully as Southern makes the task of summary harder....Experts will recognize most of the proper names, not least from Southern's own writings. But his collective portrait of them here possesses, like a Vermeer or a Van Dyck, a perspective, a sharpness of focus, and a discreet virtuosity of detail, that bring a wholly new organism before the viewer's eyes. The great medievalist has not failed us."Southern, Richard W. is the author of 'Scholastic Humanism and the Unification of Europe Foundations' with ISBN 9780631205272 and ISBN 0631205276.
