Peter of John Olivi – Commentary on Gospel of Mark:
Robert J. Karris, O.F.M., presents for the first time in English a translation of Peter of John Olivi’s brief treatment on the Gospel of Mark. Olivi (1248-1298), a Provencal Franciscan, wrote this commentary on Mark following longer commentaries on the gospels of John and Matthew which provided background to his commentary on Mark. Karris’s introduction and commentary are valuable to understanding Olivi’s work on Scripture as Karris invites the reader to observe Olivi in his thirteenth classroom. Karris provides a close and successful look at the exegetical work of an outstanding Scripture scholar of the Middle Ages.
