Brill's Companions to the Christian Tradition is a series of handbooks and reference works on the intellectual and religious life of Europe, 500-1800. This 37th volume in that series arose from a small conference at Cambridge U. in 2005. It is devoted to a prominent figure in the 13th century, Robert Kilwardby, whose philosophical writings have not received an appropriate amount of scholarly attention, according to editors Lagerlund (philosophy, U. of Western Ontario, Canada) and Thom (honorary professor, Sydney U.). Nine contributions address Kilwardy on grammar, semantics and ontology, syllogistic form, the Aristotelian theory of science, time, matter, the soul and epistemology, ethics, and the division of sciences.

Cardinal and Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Kilwardby OP (c. 1215-1279) was a very important and influential thinker in his time, but he has not received the scholarly attention that he deserves. In this book we present the first study of all of his philosophical thinking from logic and grammar to metaphysics and ethics.
