* Covers the important period from the 5th to the 16th centuries, when theology took shape as an increasingly formal subject of academic study.
* The only book to trace developments in the field by individual theologian, rather than thematically, as is the case in other texts.
* Provides a unique and distinctively theological perspective.
* Written by leading authorities from around the world.
