Mary in the Middle Ages shows how, by humble, patient and prayerful reflection on the patristic teaching Tradition, the Medieval scholars painstakingly cultivated Mariology to its full flower, alongside a legitimate, "natural" and spiritually edifying devotion to Our Lady.
With biographical vignettes of the theologians in focus, Fr. Gambero also traces this docrinal development through its facinating historical context(s), e.g., heretical challenges, geo-political climates, liturgical practices, etc., and shows the Church: her teaching, worship and witness to Christ, at the hub of human history. Together with generous excerpts from the theologians on queue--and with texts made available in English for the first time, the reader experiences a "you are there" thrill of firsthand discovery, and a freshness of examination while re-visting (often for the "first time") the eloquent and beautiful marian dogmas.
If these readings don't ignite a more fervent love of God through true and proper devotion to the Blessed Virgin, you'd better check your Christian pulse--you may not have one!
Many thanks to Fr. Gambero for producing this highly informative and inspiring work. Unreservedly recommended!
