`It will be widely welcomed for the deep grasp of Eriugena's thought which manifests and communicates, for its comprehensive range, its mastery of a voluminous secondary literature, and the didactic skill which is everywhere in evidence.' J.McEvoy, English historical Review.
' O'Meara's study is highly informative, well written and rigorously researched. It is also a timely contribution to the Irish cultural debate.' The Irish Times
' there is really nowhere to go to find a reliable account of what little is known of Eriugena and a succinct discussion of his ideas. This book admirably fills that gap: it is, in fact, the first proper book on Eriugena ... since Dom Cappuyns's fundamental work published in 1933 ... This is an enormously valuable book, bringing together a great deal of otherwise rather scattered information, and giving a reasonably clear picture of Eriugena's fundamental ideas.' Andrew Louth, Downside Review
' this book is a model of what such an introduction should be: clear, concise, and covering all the important questions' Thomas O'Loughlin, Studies
"The book is valuable for its surveys of the fertile terrain surrounding Eriugena's work and for the objective and dispassionate summaries of the best recent scholarship."--Speculum
"A rounded account of the present state of knowledge of one of the last familiar medieval thinkers. It will be particularly appreciated for the r sum s of the doctrines of Eriugena's main influences, principally Gregory of Nyssa, Pseudo-Dionysius and Maximus the Confessor, and of his own writings....His book will also be valued...for its mastery not only of Eriugena's thought but also for his intellectual milieu, both in Ireland from which he came and the schools of north-eastern France where he passed his main career. It is written with authority and economy."--Times LiterarySupplement
"O'Meara's study is highly informative, well written and rigorously researched. It is also a timely contribution to the Irish cultural debate."--The Irish Times
