a Kempis- The Imitation of Christ a Kempis, Thomas. The Imitation of Christ. Next to the Bible, the most widely read spiritual work of all time. Edited with an introduction by Harold C. Gardiner, S.J. New York and others, Doubleday, 1989. 13.9cm x 20.7cm. 236 pages. Original illustrated softcover (paperback). Very good + condition with only minor signs of wear.

Only the Bible has been more influential as a source of Christian devotional reading than The Imitation of Christ. This meditation on the spiritual life has inspired readers from Thomas More and St. Ignatius Loyola to Thomas Merton and Pope John Paul II. Written by the Augustinian monk Thomas à Kempis between 1420 and 1427, it contains clear instructions for renouncing wordly vanities and locating eternal truths. No book has more explicitly and movingly described the Christian ideal: "My son, to the degree that you can leave yourself behind, to that degree will you be able to enter into Me." With a new Foreword by Carl Anderson, the Supreme Knight and chief executive officer of the Knights of Columbus.

Abelard, A Dialogue of a Philosopher with a Jew and a Christian. Abelard, Peter. A Dialogue of a Philosopher with a Jew and a Christian. Translated by Pierre J. Payer. Toronto, Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, 1979. 14 x 20.5cm. 183 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Pre-owner's bookplate affixed to inside cover. [Mediaeval Sources In Translation, No. 20].

Peter Abelard was a medieval French scholastic philosopher, theologian and preeminent logician. His love for, and affair with, Héloïse d'Argenteuil have become legendary. The general importance of Abelard lies in his having fixed more decisively than anyone before him the scholastic manner of philosophizing, with the object of giving a formal, rational expression to received ecclesiastical doctrine. Though his particular interpretations may have been condemned, they were conceived in essentially the same spirit as the general scheme of thought afterwards elaborated in the 13th century with approval from the heads of the Church. It was in ethics that Abelard showed greatest activity of philosophical thought. He stressed the subjective intention as determining, if not the moral character, at least the moral value, of human action. [wikipedia]
