Editorial Reviews

Review

"[T]his book provides a meaningful contribution to our understanding of the relationship between Llull's ideas and their intellectual context...The Evangelical Rhetoric of Ramon Llull will be useful on a wide variety of medieval topics."--The Journal of Religion


"...a major undertaking, and one that in many places makes perceptive and illuminating observations."--Speculum


From the Back Cover

Ramon Llull (1232-1316), born on Majorca, was one of the most remarkable lay intellectuals of the thirteenth century. He devoted much of his life to promoting missions among unbelievers, the reform of Western Christian society, and personal spiritual perfection. He wrote over 200 philosophical and theological works in Catalan, Latin, and Arabic. Many of these expound on his "Great Universal Art of Finding Truth", an idiosyncratic dialectical system which he thought capable of proving Catholic beliefs to non-believers. This study offers the first full-length analysis of his theories about rhetoric and preaching, which were central to his evangelizing activities. It explains how Llull attempted to synthesize common-place advice about courtly speech and techniques of popular sermons into a single program for secular and sacred eloquence that would necessarily promote love of God and neighbor. Llull's work is a remarkable testimony to the diffusion of clerical culture among educated lay-people of his era, and to their enthusiasm for applying that knowledge to ideals of learning and piety.
