The art of posing riddles is possibly as old as mankind and spans two apparent extremes which, nevertheless, converge in the riddlic form: that of wisdom and that of play. With this perspective in mind, the author examines the poetic enigmas present in the culture of Anglo-Saxon England, exploring both the Anglo-Latin riddles of Aldhelm and those recorded in the Exeter Book. His study investigates the Old English riddlic texts from a variety of angles, arguing for the possibility of establishing patterns of Anglo-Saxon riddlic composition as such. Rafał Borysł awski intends to prove that both the Exeter collection and the Aenigmata of Aldhelm are constructed on the grounds of an identifiable structure of interrelations and interdependencies. Additionally, he argues that the riddlic mode of literary representation is also visible in other Anglo-Saxon poetic compositions. The analysis of such an assumption leads to the conclusion that the predilection for the riddle form in Anglo-Latin and Anglo-Saxon poetry results from an Old English vision of the Christian world.

This groundbreaking work elucidates the symbolism and an entire allegorical system in Islamic painting of the Golden Age between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries. Barry, a leading expert on art of the Middle East, focuses his study around the work of Bizhâ d, the undisputed master of the Persian miniature and an almost mythical personality. Barry's study follows deliberately the tradition of studies by Erwin Panofsky or Emile Mâ le on the symbolism of medieval Christian art. It is of considerable importance for the history of Islamic iconography, the study of which lags a century behind that of Byzantine or the Western Middle Ages.

The Old English Riddles survive through a manuscript of about the year 1000 left to Exeter Cathedral by Leofric, its first bishop. Unlike most of the poetry preserved in the Exeter Book, the Riddles are secular poems, robustly celebrating the familiar objects and natural world of eighth-century England. In this newly revised edition of his popular collection, Michael Alexander presents a selection of these ingenious and enigmatic poems in versions which capture their peculiar concision, humour and vigour of language.

Galatians is the inaugural volume in an exciting new commentary series, The Bible in Medieval Tradition, which seeks to reconnect today's Christians with a rich history of biblical interpretation. In this book Ian Christopher Levy has brought together commentaries on Paul's Epistle to the Galatians written by six medieval theologians spanning the ninth to the fourteenth centuries. Levy provides clear, readable translations of these significant texts which have never before been available in English or, in most cases, any modern language. He sets these works in historical and theological context through his in-depth introduction, locating each author within the broad sweep of medieval scholarship. These remarkable Medieval commentaries, written from a deep and pervasive faith, aimed not only to increase knowledge but, more vitally, to enhance and deepen Christian belief and piety an object of everlasting relevance to the Church.

Humans, seeking to understand the nature of reality, have learned to discern life's patterns and to respond to life's vicissitudes by acting wisely, doing what brings happiness and success. The Bible is a record of that journey. It represents the inspired attempt to become wise at the deepest level, living harmoniously with one's community, the earth, and the Creator. Through their inspirational teachings, the sages of the biblical wisdom tradition offer time-honored advice about some of life's most difficult concerns, including the problem of pain, the suffering of the innocent, the nature of evil, the justice of God, and the pervasiveness of death. Wisdom Revealed, a survey of biblical wisdom literature, offers perspective on topics that arise as one follows the text, always with an eye on the big picture, namely, daily living. Those who read this literature will be exposed to a set of core values necessary for vital citizenship and effective leadership at all levels of life. They will also obtain time-honored advice about how to deal with life's uncertainties in a holistic and pragmatic manner, focusing on what it means to be human in the presence of God.

The Argentinian writer and poet Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) was many things during his life, but what has gone largely unnoticed is that he was a medievalist, and his interest in Germanic medievalism was pervasive throughout his work. This study will consider the medieval elements in Borges creative work and shed new light on his poetry.
