AbstractThis session aims to explore the reception of theological knowledge across linguistic borders, by focusing on the way in which 12th-century Latin medieval readers made use of the works of Greek Christian authors available to them in Latin translations produced from Late Antiquity onwards. The 12th century has long been recognised as an important period in the Latin reception of Greek classical knowledge with modern scholars paying attention especially to the medieval consumption of Greek works of philosophy, law, medicine, and science. Despite widespread evidence for the reading of Greek Christian authors in the 12th century, the reception of religious texts has received less scholarly attention, although they were considered highly important by medieval readers. By drawing attention to the 12th century Latin reception of Greek Christian texts, this session seeks to better understand what role played the Greek theological thought in shaping the Latin Christian medieval tradition.
