John Pecham (ca.1235-1292) was an influential Franciscan theologian who taught at Paris before serving as Archbishop of Canterbury from 1279 until his death. Pecham is regarded as a founder of “Neo-Augustinianism,” a movement concerned with preserving a blend of theological and philosophical positions united under the banner of Augustine but openly adapted from Aristotle, Avicenna, Avicebron, and others. From this broadly Neoplatonic perspective Pecham took part in late-13th-century debates in philosophical anthropology, opposing both radical Aristotelianism and Thomas Aquinas’ psychology while remaining committed to his own reading of Aristotle. He represented a viable theological and philosophical perspective in his day, and was involved in major debates with Aquinas and other masters at the university of Paris.It is remarkable that in all of philosophical literature in the Thomist tradition, the great opponent of Aquinas in philosophy and theology, John Pecham, is largely omitted. This book opens the question of Pecham’s significance by providing an interpretation of central texts and showing that his philosophical anthropology is based on a distinctive, original synthesis of Neoplatonic metaphysics. This Pechamian anthropology is a significant alternative to that of Aquinas. This book discusses a variety of Pecham texts, with detailed expositions of two: his 'Tractatus De Anima', and the fifth of his 'Quaestiones De Anima'.

In The Branches of the Gospel of John, Keefer presents a new paradigm for understanding the role of history of interpretation in New Testament studies, with a focus on the Gospel of John. Drawing largely from the work of Hans Robert Jauss, he presents history of interpretation as a means to understand both the text and the historical reader. Jauss's concept of Rezeptionsästhetik helps the New Testament scholar to reflect upon both text and history in a new light. John is an exemplary work to investigate along these lines because no other canonical book was as provocative in the early church. John was used extensively by Valentinians but also by the best-known opponent of Valentinus, Irenaeus. Later, major figures such as Origen, Augustine, and John Chrysostom worked through this gospel, chapter by chapter, to produce either commentaries (Origen) or sets of homilies (Augustine and Chrysostom). What emerges in The Branches of the Gospel of John is a realization that these early interpreters prove fruitful for both textual and historical study of the Fourth Gospel. With regard to history, early interpreters of John provide data points for understanding John in second- and third-century contexts. Although these early interpretations do not explain the origins of John's gospel, they nevertheless provide us with evidence of the Fourth Gospel's historical role in the construction of the early church. With regard to literary and textual issues, the present book demonstrates that these early readings of John can open up fresh avenues of interpretation for contemporary readers.

De vocatione omnium gentium ist das früheste Werk der patristischen Literatur, das Gottes universellen Heilswillen zum Thema hat. Es ist in mehrfacher Hinsicht eine Reaktion auf Augustins einflussreiche, doch umstrittene Prädestinationslehre und auf dessen Ansicht, dass Gott nicht alle Menschen zum Heil beruft. Prosper rückt in dieser Schrift von seiner früheren Position eines strengen Verfechters augustinischer Gnadentheologie und eines erbitterten Gegners der anti-augustinischen Theologie in Gallien ab: Der versöhnlichere Ton, den er in De vocatione omnium gentium anschlägt, dürfte wenigstens teilweise auf den Einfluss seines Freundes, Papst Leos des Großen, zurückzuführen sein. ... De vocatione omnium gentium is the first work in patristic literature on the universal salvific will of God and marks a move away from the views of the late Augustine on predestination and a divine salvific will limited to only some human beings. It also marks a move on Prosper's part away from his earlier position as an ardent disciple of Augustine and opponent of the anti-Augustinian movement in Gaul to a theologian open to a milder and more conciliatory position on grace and the salvific will of God. The mellowing of Prosper's earlier hardline Augustinianism may be due at least in part to the influence of his friend, Pope Leo the Great.
