Description

The work of the Majorcan lay theologian and philosopher Ramon Llull (1232-1316), especially his Great Universal Art of Finding Truth, had wide impact in European culture of the late medieval and early modern eras. The influence of his work is evident in realms from philosophy, theology, and missionizing to literature, encyclopedism, arts of memory, and the sciences. Almost unknown today – except among academic specialists – the interest and impact of Llull’s work is attested by the forthcoming volume Companion to Llull and Llullism (Brill), which spans six centuries and includes the first English-language publications of the work of several distinguished European scholars. For this session, contributors to the Companion volume will join with other specialists in the field to describe and discuss the aspects of Llull and Llullism that most urgently need further research.
