Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109), Benedictine monk and the second Norman archbishop of Canterbury, is regarded as one of the most important philosophers and theologians of the Middle Ages. The essays in this volume explore all his major philosophical and theological ideas, including his teachings on faith and reason, God's existence and nature, logic, freedom, truth, ethics, and key Christian doctrines. They also cover his life, the sources of his thought, and his influence on other thinkers.ContentsIntroduction Brian Davies and Brian Leftow1. Anselm's life, works, and immediate influence G. R.
