The medieval lyric by Peter Dronke( Book )

80 editions published between 1968 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 1,642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To read Peter Dronke's book is to want immediately to read again the lyrics about which he writes so perceptively. His understanding of human nature combines with an extraordinary bird's-eye view of Western European culture in the middle ages (and familiarity with the languages) to present the poetry of the time in beguiling context. He shows the men and women who sang and played in medieval Europe as the heirs of both a Roman and a Germanic lyric tradition, united but differentiated from country to country; he introduces the scholars and musicians from the Byzantine world and the Paris schools, the German courts and Italian city-states, and he brilliantly presents their work, both sacred and profane. The melodies are given for twelve of the lyrics discussed, a small but satisfying repertoire and an important reminder that music was for a medieval audience an essential complement to the lyric
Women writers of the Middle Ages : a critical study of texts from Perpetua (203) to Marguerite Porete (1310) by Peter Dronke( )

20 editions published between 1984 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first to give a detailed picture of the contributions made by women writers to western literature from the third century to the thirteenth. Many of the texts Peter Dronke presents and interprets have hitherto remained unknown, or virtually inaccessible; some have never been edited or translated before. The emphasis throughout is on personal testimonies, and on texts that have notable literary or intellectual interest. Thus the book affords many new insights into medieval literature, not only into the writings of renowned women such as Hrotsvitha or Heloise, but also into those of a number of neglected writers who are exceptional in their gifts and individuality
Poetic individuality in the Middle Ages : new departures in poetry, 1000-1150 by Peter Dronke( Book )

38 editions published between 1970 and 1986 in 4 languages and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A History of twelfth-century Western philosophy by Peter Dronke( Book )

31 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first comprehensive study of the philosophical achievements of twelfth-century Western Europe. It is the collaboration of fifteen scholars whose detailed survey makes accessible the intellectual preoccupations of the period, with all texts cited in English translation throughout. After a discussion of the cultural context of twelfth-century speculation, and some of the main streams of thought - Platonic, Stoic, and Arabic - that quickened it, comes a characterisation of the new problems and perspectives of the period, in scientific inquiry, speculative grammar, and logic. This is followed by a closer examination of the distinctive features of some of the most innovative thinkers of the time, from Anselm and Abelard to the School of Chartres. A final section shows the impact of newly recovered works of Aristotle in the twelfth-century West

Nine medieval Latin plays( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and Latin and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first volume of Cambridge Medieval Classics offers the text of nine of the most outstanding plays composed and performed in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, the period of the finest flowering of medieval Latin drama. Newly edited and translated, the texts are given in both Latin and English, with detailed notes and apparatus to aid interpretation. They are selected to represent the range of dramatic achievement between about 1050 and 1180, when the use of sung play-texts, within a context of liturgical ceremony as well as for secular entertainment, was at its peak. The plays chosen are boldly inventive and compellingly imaginative, revealing the depth and range of the medieval dramatic mind. Included are works from France and Germany, a piece by Hildegard of Bingen, and the Passion Play from the Carmina Burana"--Publisher description

Hildegard of Bingen : the context of her thought and art( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in 3 languages and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers a comprehensive view of Hildegard of Bingen's manifold achievements, her intellectual background and her reception in the later Middle Ages. It brings together, with full documentation, the contributions of an international group of medievalists, from diverse disciplines, to the colloquium held at the Warburg Institute on 17– 18 November 1995. Three of the essays are devoted to the cultural landscape in which Hildegard lived and worked – her relation to the writings of the Fathers, to the schools of her own time, and to the prophetic tradition. Two others examine how, after Hildegard's death, she came to be revered as saint and prophet, and two shed new light on the transmission of her manuscripts and of the illuminations that accompany her visions. Each of the remaining essays focuses on what is new and individual in aspects of Hildegard's astonishingly varied work: in her sacred music and poetry, her astronomy, botany and medicine, and in her unprecedented uses of allegory. The volume both pays tribute to the ninth centenary of Hildegard's birth (1098) and complements the first major study of Hildegard in our century – that of Hans Liebeschütz – which the Warburg Library, still in Hamburg, published in 1930
