Editorial Reviews

Review

“Taking Augustine’s Platonism seriously thus affords a better understanding of Augustine’s theory of knowledge than taking either Aristotelian or Avicennan notions of the intellect as normative.”  (Scottish Journal of Theology, 1 July 2014)

“Nonetheless, she has written an important and stimulating book.”  (Reviews in Religion and Theology, 1 March 2013)

"This volume merits attention from patristic scholars, medievalists, systematic theologians, and philosophers alike."  (Religious Studies Review, 1 June 2012) 

“Schumacher could very well recommend the epistemological itinerary of the de Trinitate without the challenge of re-writing western intellectual history. I look forward to her next book, which promises to do just that.”  (Modern Theology, 1 January 2013)

Review

"An important and ground-breaking study which links growing interest in Augustine and medieval philosophy with cutting edge questions in contemporary philosophy of religion, particularly concerning epistemology and the 'rationality' of religion.
Janet Soskice, University of Cambridge

"In this lucidly argued and solidly documented study Schumacher uncovers the roots of problems notoriously besetting modern theories of knowledge in conflicting medieval interpretations of Augustine’s assumptions about knowledge as divine illumination: an intriguing thesis, which she handles with delicacy and flair."
Fergus Kerr, O.P. University of Edinburgh

"Challenges the traditional history of theories of knowledge. A bold and provocative reading."
Olivier Boulnois, Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes (University of Paris, Sorbonne)
