Manuscripts have played a crucial role in the educational practices of virtually all cultures that have a history of using them. As learning and teaching tools, manuscripts become primary witnesses for reconstructing and studying didactic and research activities and methodologies from elementary levels to the most advanced. The present volume investigates the relation between manuscripts and educational practices focusing on four particular research topics: educational settings: teachers, students and their manuscripts; organising knowledge: syllabi; exegetical practices: annotations; modifying tradition: adaptations. The volume offers a number of case studies stretching across geophysical boundaries from Western Europe to South-East Asia, with a time span ranging from the second millennium BCE to the twentieth century CE.

Producing Christian Culture takes as its thread the 'interpretative genres' within which medieval people engaged with the Bible. Contributors to the volume present specific material as a case study illustrative of a specific genre, whether devotional, homiletical, scholarly, or controversial. The chronological range moves from St Augustine to the use of gospel texts in polemical writing of the first two decades of the 1500s, with focal sections on early medieval Anglo-Saxon and Carolingian theology, the scholastic turn of the High Middle Ages, and the influence of vernacular writing in the later Middle Ages. The tremendous range and vitality of medieval responses to biblical texts are highlighted within the studies.

The Making of the Historia scholastica, 1150 1200' is without a doubt a seminal study of the first importance for the study of the history of medieval theology, and especially for the making in the mid-to-late twelfth century of one of the most influential books produced at that time. The Scholastic History of Peter Comestor is an encyclopaedic outline of the contents of the Bible presented from a historical point of view; it was destined to enjoy a phenomenal success for centuries to come. Mark Clark shows Comestor at work as a historian with a profound knowledge of previous scholarship, a masterful commentator on the literal sense of the stories found in Scripture, and a teacher in Paris whose colleagues included Peter Lombard and Stephen Langton. 0David Luscombe - The University of Sheffield.
