Reading Anselm's Proslogion

Another event in 2009 is the publication of my book, Reading Anselm's Proslogion: The History of Anselm's Argument and its Significance Today, details of which can be found at the website of the publisher, Ashgate.
It is the outcome of my interdisciplinary work on Anselm: palaeography, historical research, theology and philosophy. It contains parallel Latin/English texts of the Proslogion, Pro Insipiente and Responsio. I chose not to use the text of Schmitt's edition (S. Anselmi Opera Omnia), but to produce my own transcription of the text from Ms.Bodley 271, which I have argued has an important place in Anselm Studies. See my article, 'Ms Bodley 271: Establishing the Anselmian Canon?' in The Saint Anselm Journal, Vol 2.1 (Fall 2004) 67-80. It can be downloaded as a pdf file here.
