Get Dante and the Mystical Tradition: Bernard of Clairvaux in PDF

By Steven Botterill

during this examine, Steven Botterill explores the highbrow courting among the best poet of the fourteenth century, Dante, and the best religious author of the 12th century, Bernard of Clairvaux. Botterill analyses the narrative episode regarding Bernard as a personality within the final cantos of the Paradiso, opposed to the historical past of his medieval acceptance as a contemplative mystic, devotee of Mary, and, chiefly, a preacher of exceptional eloquence. Botterill attracts on a variety of fabrics to set up and illustrate the connections among Bernard's recognition and his portrayal in Dante's poem. Botterill's clean method of the research of the entire episode will galvanize the reader to think again the importance and implications of Bernard's presence within the Commedia.
