TEAMS Commentary Series

The Commentary Series is designed for classroom use. Its goal is to make available to teachers and students useful examples of the vast tradition of medieval commentary on sacred scripture. The series includes English translations of works written in a number of medieval languages and from various centuries and religious traditions. The series focuses on treatises which have relevance to the many fields of Medieval Studies, including theories of allegory and literature, history of art, music, spirituality, and political thought. The editions include short introductions which set the context and suggest the importance of each work.
