St. Anselm's Book of Meditations and Prayers features twenty-one meditations, which focus on several contrasting concepts within the Christian faith. For example, St. Anselm compares the sinner's fears and the sinner's hopes by meditating on the nature of sin, which separates us from God, and the grace of God, which draws sinners back to salvation. St. Anselm also addresses the sinner's past and the sinner's future by meditating on the nature of the wicked soul, which finds a life of misery, and the nature of the good soul, upon which God bestows glory. Finally, St. Anselm explores the paradox of the Incarnation, meditating on the humanity of Christ by which Christ interacts with his people, and the godliness of Christ, by which Christ redeems his people. St. Anselm's deep desire to understand his faith is evidence in this collection of keenly insightful meditations. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer

PRODUCT DETAIL

Anselm Saint Of Canterbury

Anselm of Canterbury, far and away the best philosopher of the eleventh century, described his philosophical work as faith seeking understanding. Following Augustine of Hippo, he argues that without faith he could not find the convincing rational arguments that establish understanding and that convincing evidence of a contradiction to the faith would invalidate any argument. Nonetheless, faith with understanding is better than faith alone. He avoids the citation of authorities in his writings, using argument alone to establish his points (something for which his teacher Lanfranc chided him), and he insists on answering every possible objection to his views with clear reasons against it. He is but little interested in the task of reconciling authorities or finding a unity of doctrine in the thought of the various Church Fathers. However, Augustine is, in fact, his constant inspiration, providing him even with the dialogue form he uses in his works. Anselm's thought is rooted in dialectical and grammatical technique. He is particularly skilled at resolving difficulties by uncovering the true logical form of expressions with misleading grammatical forms. His writings are without exception a feast for the analytical mind, yet accessible even to a beginner.
