Overview

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 scholastic theology, and he has been called the church’s “second Augustine.” His treatise on the atonement, Cur Deus Homo was the first to systematically articulate the penal substitution theory of the atonement, which was later developed by John Calvin and widely embraced by Reformed and evangelical churches. He was also the first to construct and systematize the ontological argument for the existence of God. The Major Works of Anselm of Canterbury contains Anselm’s important theological and philosophical writings: the Proslogium, the Monologium, Cur Deus Homo, and Reply to Guanilon.

Praise for the Print Edition

As a thinker, Anselm stands high in any company. Within the Christian tradition he rates among the best theologians of any age and among the finest authors of spiritual writings . . . Anselm was a pioneer of a method of clear thinking whose tone can be straightforwardly described as a sweet reasonableness. . . . There is always an issue of perennial concern at the heart of any matter he considers.

—G. R. Evans, Lecturer in History, University of Cambridge

About St. Anselm

Anselm was born in 1033 in Aosta in modern-day Italy. In 1059, after the death of his mother, Anselm left home and traveled to Normandy, and entered the Benedictine Abbey of Bec, where he became abbot in 1053. During his years at the Bec Abbey, he wrote his philosophical works, the Monologium and the Proslogium. Anselm made numerous trips to England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. His popularity with the English led King William II to appoint him as Archbishop of Canterbury in 1093. He remained Archbishop of Canterbury until his death in 1109.
