Letters Of Catherine Of Siena Vol 1


$65.00


The first complete translation of the Letters of St. Catherine of Siena (1343-1380) makes available to a large body of readers a major historical and religious document of the Middle Ages. Catherine's common-sense spirituality and theological syntheses won her the distinction of being declared a Doctor of the Roman Catholic Church, a title that she and Teresa of Avila were the first women to bear. In addition to her important historical role, she is a major figure in the study of Christian culture, the history of feminism, and the tradition of women mystics.

...follows the highest standards of textual scholarship, and will certainly be the standard English translation; ...an essential tool...of medieval spirituality. Church History

Noffke's translation is especially gifted in capturing the to-be-read-aloud style that was Catherine's and that no amount of editing by her more erudite followers managed to eradicate entirely. The letters are a joy to read. One awaits the next three volumes with eagerness. Speculum

This wonderful and important work ? is a feast for the mind and heart. Beautifully bound and printed, this volume of Suzanne Noffke's careful scholarship brings the fourteenth-century Dominican to life in a marvelous way for English speaking readers. Detailed commentaries and textual notes accompany and illumine each letter ? as well as indices, manuscript lists, maps, a chronology of Catherine's life, and bibliographies. No other existing volume approaches either the scholarship or the vibrancy of this translation in English. Theology Today

The beautifully translated letters are accompanied by complete historical and textual notes in addition to an excellent bibliography and index. All university libraries will want this excellent volume in their collections. Religious Studies Review

Noffke's work is important because it promises to make all of St. Catherine's writings available to English-speaking audiences for the first time. She has succeeded in making the saint's writings readable, and her thought and personality more accessible? She has based her translation on the best critical editions available in Italian. Noffke's book will certainly stimulate scholarly research and foster new interpretations of St. Catherine's life and thought. Catholic Historical Review

This, the second edition of volume I of St. Catherine's letters, completely supersedes the first edition published in 1988. Prompted by her work on volumes II-IV of the complete letters, the editor has considerably expanded the notes in the present book and reordered the letters themselves to reflect a better understanding of Catherine's theology, spirituality, and epistolary career.
