The theology of Thomas Gallus

thomas gallusKnowledge, Love, and Ecstasy in the Theology of Thomas Gallus (Oxford University Press, 2017), by Associate Professor of Theology Boyd Taylor Coolman provides the first full English language study of French theologian Thomas Gallus and represents a significant advance in his distinctive theology. Coolman argues that Gallus distinguishes, but never separates and intimately relates two “international modalities” in human consciousness: the intellective and the affective, both of which are forms of cognition. Though Gallus may be less well-known that his Victorine Theology predecessors, Coolman’s work recognizes the full import and synthetic power of Gallus’ theological vision.
