Never the Twain Shall Meet?
Latins and Greeks learning from each other in Byzantium
Ed. by Searby, Denis
Aims and Scope
This volume explores the theme of Latin and Greek mutual learning, intellectual and cultural interchange in the final age of Byzantium (1261-1453), challenging received conceptions of East and West as clearly delineated ideological categories. The reception of Thomas Aquinas and Western scholasticism receives emphasis, but also other forms of philosophical and theological frames of reference that have had lasting repercussions.
