This volume presents the editio princeps of Andrew of St Victor's commentary on the biblical books of the Minor Prophets, written before 1150 and surviving in five manuscripts. While relying heavily on the commentary of Jerome of the same books, this commentary also attests to the pioneering position Andrew and his circle must have had in the Christian exploration of the Jewish exegetical tradition. Andrew’s use of the Glossa ordinaria will enable scholars to shed more light on the genesis of this crucial medieval text. It is a rich source for the history of biblical hermeneutics in the twelfth century.

Review

"Les apparats et l'introduction permettent d'utiliser aisément le texte et mettent en valeur la méthode exégétique d'André. Les éditeurs fournissent ainsi une matière nouvelle pour l'histoire de la culture scolaire du XIIe siècle."

(Sumi Shimahara, dans Archivum Latinitatis Medii Aevi 68, 2010, p. 377)

 

"Now, over a decade after the appearance of Frans van Liere's edition of Andrew's Expositio hystorica in librum Regum, van Liere and Mark Zier have added to this list an excellent critical edition of Andrew's Expositio super Duodecim Prophetas." (Franklin T. Harkins, in: The journal of medieval latin, vol. 21, 2011, p. 298)
