For nearly one thousand years, theologians, philosophers, and Christian apologists have felt the effects of Anselm of Canterbury. Anselm’s theological method was rigorous and represented a seismic shift in medieval thought. He is widely considered the founder of scholastic theology. In Saint Anselm’s Book of Meditations and Prayers the reader is brought into the very heart of this great saint’s relationship with God and are asked to participate. The meditations are on such topics as “the dignity and the woe of man’s estate,” “the penitent’s address to God his Father,” and “hope for the future.”
