All volumes are in English.

“The Brill’s Companions to the Christian Tradition book series has made major contributions to the study of the history of Christianity for well over a decade now, presenting cutting-edge scholarship on a host of significant figures and movements over many centuries. This new e-book collection of Companions to Late Antiquity and Medieval Studies makes many of these valuable studies available to a wider audience and in a convenient format. It is a significant tool for scholars and students.”
Bernard McGinn, University of Chicago

“It is very helpful to have this scholarly resource on Late Antique and Medieval Studies available on line. The range of the Companions’ topics, from individuals such as Gregory I or Joachim of Fiore, institutions such as the Hanseatic League, or textual categories and themes such as preaching and audience is impressive. Each volume offers an immensely useful series of articles which contrive to be both authoritative surveys and independent interpretations.”
Rosamond McKitterick, University of Cambridge

Anselm Studies and Texts focuses on the life and thought of Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109), his later reception and legacy, and contemporary inspiration. Studies of the wider contexts, medieval and modern, for Anselm’s writings and experiences are also encouraged. As one of the most significant thinkers of the Middle Ages, Anselm attracts and commands scholarly attention; his life and thought provides continuing challenge and stimulation within modern philosophical, theological, spiritual and historical discourse.

Anselm Studies and Texts is a wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary series for a vibrant and growing field. Submissions are welcomed from any field of study: including, but not limited to philosophy, history, theology, art-history, literary theory and feminist studies. Studies on Anselm’s thought in a global perspective are also encouraged. The series operates with a variety of formats, from monographs and essay collections to critical editions and translations into English.

The series is run under the aegis of the International Association for Anselm Studies, which has organised regular meetings since 1959, alongside other organisations and individuals. All contributions from early career projects to those from established scholars are equally invited.

Aims and Scope
The series aims to provide a peer-reviewed* forum for high-quality monographs and coherent collective volumes on medieval philosophy, written in such a way as to make them comprehensible and interesting to mainstream philosophers and historians of philosophy in Anglophone philosophy departments. Volumes in the series are not required to use medieval philosophy to make a direct contribution to debates in contemporary analytical philosophy (although this is one possibility), but the manner in which the medieval texts are treated should reflect, in an historically sensitive way, the methods and the language of contemporary analytical philosophy – in especial, its ideals of clarity and unpretentiousness. There are many different varieties of this general ‘analytical’ approach, and the series is open to any of them. The scope of medieval philosophy is taken widely, to include the Arabic, Greek and Jewish traditions, as well as the Latin one, and to run from c.500 to c.1500; works which go on even so far as 1700 may be considered, if they are at least equally concerned with the period before 1500.
• The series is intended to provide a forum for both promising young scholars as well as established researchers.
• Volumes may consist of essay collections (10-18 essays, 6,000-10,000 words each), conference proceedings, and monographs on substantial subjects (80,000 – 200,000 words), with the exception of unrevised PhD dissertations.
• Books are welcome which bring together different disciplines, so long as they fit the aims of the series.
• All books are refereed, and there will be a requirement of philosophical rigour and impeccable historical and textual scholarship. Conference proceedings and other collections of essay must demonstrate a clear rational and internal coherence.
Publications in this series will be of interest to scholars with interests in medieval and analytic philosophy, especially in the Anglophone world.

It will accept studies on Roman and canon law, English common law, Continental customary law, and Jewish and Islamic law.

The Manuscript World investigates the forms, functions and impact of books, individually and collectively, in their cultural contexts, from Antiquity to the Renaissance. Extending from the era of roll books, through that of the monastic scriptorium and then on, via the age of professional scribes and illuminators serving scholars and princes, to the point when manuscript-makers were responding to the challenge of printing, this long period embraces a sequence of profound changes in the nature of the book. The Manuscript World accordingly explores the many roles of the hand-written book in all its manifestations, across more than a millennium of human history.
