In this new translation of Bonaventure's Breviloquium, Dominic Monti brings to the English speaking world - for the first time - one of the most brilliant yet neglected works of the Seraphic Doctor. Monti's comprehensive introduction and annotated translation provide a great contribution to contemporary scholarship, and enable this precious jewel box of medieval thought to be displayed more prominently. For all those interested int he synthesis of Bonaventure's thought, this work is invaluable. --Ilia Delio, O.S.F., Washington Theological Union
