Abstract:

Does God exist? Can we know anything about God's nature? What is truth? Do human beings have freedom of choice? Can they have such a freedom in a world created by God? These questions, and others, were ones which Anselm of Canterbury (c.1033-1109) took very seriously. Although utterly convinced of the truth of the Christian religion, he was determined to try to make sense of his faith. For Anselm, the doctrines of Christianity are an invitation to question, to think, and to learn. Anselm's intellectual rigour and clarity of expression place him among the greatest of theologians and philosophers. This edition brings together for the first time in one volume all his most important works. This edition includes: Introduction -- Textual note -- Bibliography -- Chronology -- Index. (back cover).
