Summary This is an introduction to the thought of Robert Holcot, a Dominican friar who flourished in the 1330's. Although Holcot produced a diverse and influential body of work--including scholastic treatises, biblical commentaries, and sermons--he is often overlooked today. In this book John Slotemaker and Jeffrey Witt restore Holcot to his rightful place as one of the most important thinkers of his time
