'... a masterpiece ... by one of the most acute, imaginative and incisive of medieval scholars.' Christopher Brooke, The Times Literary Supplement 'From the most distinguished medieval historian comes an arresting biography of the man who formulated the most compelling proof of the existence of God, and its broad palette paints around him a captivating landscape.' Miri Rubin, The Times '... a masterpiece ... by one of the most acute, imaginative and incisive of medieval scholars, on the rich and complex legacy of St Anselm, and it will be gratefully savoured by all who wish to understand Anselm as monk, spiritual director, philosopher, theologian and Archbishop of Canterbury.' Christopher Brooke, The Times Literary Supplement '... a masterwork of scholarship and stylistically seductive.' Anthony Burgess, The Observer
