Description

Bernard of Clairvaux’s De Consideratione, addressed to his protégé Pope Eugene III, enjoyed a rich after-life. It influenced the angelology, moral and sacramental theology of Alexander of Hales and in different ways, provided Dante with a rhetorical model for challenging the pope and advancing a bold vision of ecclesiastical reform. The panel will explore the different ways Alexander and Dante received and redeployed Bernard’s provocative epistolary treatise along with broader questions of what the text implies regarding Bernard’s ecclesiology, his Christology, and their intersection.
