Grover Zinn, Jr has played a key role in promoting a renewal of interest in the intellectual and religious culture of St Victor, at least within the English-speaking world. The publication of this volume is thus a fitting tribute to his achievement, in drawing together a distinguished range of contributors, some of whom work directly on Victorine authors, while others consider contemporaries, directly or indirectly influenced by their achievement. Contributions to Festschriften often suffer from being excessively specialised

These essays might be better suited for the graduate or doctoral-level student.

Twelfth-Century Scholars, and Beyond reflect the equally remarkable contributions of Grover A. to the field of Medieval Studies. For more than forty years, Zinn has broadened understanding of the study of the Bible in the Middle Ages in general, and illuminated the thought of the Augustinian canons at the Abbey of St. Victor in particular. This festschrift published in Zinns honor builds upon that scholarship. It starts with four interesting studies on material culture.

How many turbulent castellans in early twelfth-century Francia were veterans of the crusade? Indeed, how many castellans actually survived the crusade, returned home, and established any sort of political relationship with the king? In making a case on behalf of Naus’s argument, it is possible.

How many turbulent castellans in early twelfth-century Francia were veterans of the crusade? Indeed, how many castellans actually survived the crusade, returned home, and established any sort of political relationship with the king? In making a case on behalf of Naus’s argument, it is possible to assemble some useful anecdotes, examples of crusaders behaving not just rebelliously but near sociopathically.

From Knowledge to Beatitude is a collection of original essays on the intersection between Christian theology and spiritual life primarily in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, especially in the Parisian School of St. Victor, which honors the influential work of Grover A. Zinn, Jr. Written by distinguished scholars from various fields of medieval studies, these essays range from the study of the exegetical school of twelfth-century St. Victor and medieval glossed Bibles to the medieval cultural reception of women visionaries, preachers, and crusaders. Although focused on St. Victor, they provide analyses of Christian themes up to the modern period. A common thread is Zinn’s careful attention to the connections between medieval spirituality and biblical studies, the origin of these ideas, and their lasting influence in Christian culture. The essays take us from Hugh of St. Victor’s foundation—material culture—to the “beatitude” of a wider understanding of Victorine culture and its lasting legacy. This volume is a fitting tribute to a generous scholar, teacher, and mentor. It will appeal to historians, scholars of religion and theology, and art historians.

"From Knowledge to Beatitude serves a need and fills an important gap in the Victorine tradition, the history of medieval exegesis, and medieval studies. The volume also honors the contributions of Grover Zinn, an important medieval scholar and teacher. It serves as a model for doing research and generalizing in the field of medieval studies and demonstrates how the last generation and the current generation of medieval scholars have plowed through difficult primary and secondary sources to make the medieval traditions clear." —Philip Krey, Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia
