Heloise and Abelard by Etienne Gilson( Book )
100 editions published between 1930 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 2,162 libraries worldwide
Quelle est donc la leçon des faits? Qu'Abélard fut le premier homme moderne? Qu'Héloïse fut la première femme moderne? Nous nous contenterions de bien moins : qu'au moment d'enfermer le Moyen Age ou la Renaissance dans une de ces définitions brillantes qui leur sont chères, les historiens de la littérature se souviennent de cette folle petite Française, hantée par l'idéal de la grandeur romaine comme par celle de la grandeur chrétienne, qui ne sut jamais au juste si elle était l'Eustochium d'un nouveau Saint Jérôme ou la Cornélie d'un nouveau Pompée, et qui, prenant le voile à Argenteuil pour l'amour d'un homme, se consacra pour toujours à Dieu en récitant des vers de la Pharsale. Car enfin, ce drame passionnel est bien une histoire du XIIe siècle. On peut le lire comme une histoire chrétienne et c'en est véritablement une
The spirit of mediæval philosophy by Etienne Gilson( Book )
51 editions published between 1936 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,050 libraries worldwide
All these lectures converge to this conclusion: that the Middle Ages produced, besides a Christian literature and a Christian art as everyone admits, this very Christian philosophy which is a matter of dispute. No one, of course, maintains that this mediaeval philosophy was created out of nothing, nor yet that all mediaeval philosophy was Christian -- just as no one maintains that mediaeval literature and art were created out of nothing or were wholly Christian. - Preface

"In this work, the eminent Catholic philosopher Etienne Gilson deals with one of the most important and perplexing metaphysical problems: the relation between our notion of God and demonstrations of his existence. Gilson examines Greek, Christian, and modern philosophy as well as the thinking that has grown out of our age of science in this fundamental analysis of the problem of God."--Jacket

The unity of philosophical experience by Etienne Gilson( Book )
50 editions published between 1937 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 1,476 libraries worldwide
"It is the proper aim and scope of the present book to show that the history of philosophy makes philosophical sense, and to define its meaning in regard to the nature of philosophical knowledge itself. For that reason, the various doctrines, as well as the definite parts of those doctrines, which have been taken into account in this volume, should not be considered as arbitrarily selected fragments from some abridged description of medieval and modern philosophy, but as a series of concrete philosophical experiments especially chosen for their dogmatic significance. Each of them represents a definite attempt to deal with philosophical knowledge according to a certain method, and all of them, taken together, make up a philosophical experience. The fact that all those experiments have yielded the same result will, as I hope, justify the common conclusion...that there is a centuries-long experience of what philosophical knowledge is--and that such an experience exhibits a remarkable unity." [Foreword]

89 editions published between 1924 and 1993 in English and held by 1,095 libraries worldwide
The present revival of interest in the name and work of St. Thomas Aquinas is a fact which is bound to impress even the most superficial observer. In fact, nobody thinks of denying it; but, since it disturbs the set habits of some, the attempt has been made to give it an unfavourable interpretation in order to escape the duty to take an interest in it. It is - so it has been said - a merely artificial return to an obsolete scholasticism, a movement, political-religious rather than strictly philosophical; what has not been alleged and invented to explain a movement of ideas whose depth and vitality are sufficient to disprove so mean an origin!
