Sunday Sermons of Bonaventure receives great review

The Sunday Sermons of St. Bonaventure, published in 2008 with an introduction and translation by Timothy J. Johnson, PhD, received a wonderful review in the Medieval Academy of America’s journal, Speculum.  Written by Beverly Mayne Kienzle and Katherine Wrisley, Harvard Divinity School, some of the highlights of the review are: “Readers will be grateful for his illuminating analysis and his careful scrutiny of scholarship on the manuscript tradition as well as on studies of Bonaventure and of medieval sermons.  They will also appreciate Johnson’s fluid and graceful rendering into English of Bonaventure’s eloquent and carefully balanced Latin sentences. This is a superb volume and a model translation that makes the Sunday Sermons as well as their important context, manuscript transmission, and spiritual message accessible to anglophone readers.”

The review appeared in Volume 55, 2011, of Speculum.
