Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"James McEvoy surely knows Robert Grosseteste better than anyone has since the thirteenth century. . . . Fully up to expectations, he has produced a splendid book, the best single piece on the great English scholastic to appear to date."—Catholic Historical Review

"This is an excellent introduction to the significant philosophical work of a somewhat neglected early Oxford master. Easily readable while scholarly significant, this book is a fine contribution to a fine series on medieval writers."—Speculum
