Gregory I (590-604) is often considered the first medieval pope and the first exponent of a truly medieval spirituality. Carole Straw places Gregory in his historical context and considers the many facets of his personality--monk, preacher, and pope--in order to elucidate the structure of his thought and present a unified, thematic interpretation of his spiritual concerns.
