The two volumes of Reviewing Dante`s Theology bring together work by a range of internationally prominent Dante scholars to assess current research on Dante`s theology and to suggest future directions for research.
Volume 2 considers some of the broader social, cultural and intellectual contexts for Dante`s theological engagement. The contributors discuss the relationship between theology and poetry as Dante sees and presents it; Dante`s thought on the nature of the Church; the ways in which liturgical practice helped shape the poet`s work; the links between Dante`s political and theological ideas; the importance of preaching in Dante`s context; the ways in which the notion of virtue connects theological and ethical thought in Dante`s works; and the extent to which Dante`s often surprising, groundbreaking work tests medieval notions of orthodoxy. Each essay offers an overview of its topic and opens up new avenues.
