The special issue of Analiza i Egzystencja entitled The Intersections of Theology, Language, and Cognition in Medieval Tradition features a diversity of approaches to debating theological and philosophical dilemmas in the late Middle Ages and offers a forum for cross-disciplinary research on medieval philosophy and theology. While scholars tended to cross disciplinary boundaries throughout the Middle Ages, interdisciplinary practices reached an apex of sophistication in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, promoting thematic and methodological entwinements. Admittedly, by combining analytical tools and terminology from disparate disciplines, thirteenth- and fourteenth-century authors crafted a methodological perspective that enabled them to describe and explore numerous issues from different angles, offering novel solutions to old problems. This approach was adopted in various fields of knowledge and proved most fruitful in theology, where it prompted a veritable cross-pollination of ideas. Especially inspiring were the intersections of theological, linguistic, and epistemological realms, as studied by several contributors to this issue.

Abstract

The special issue of Analiza i Egzystencja entitled The Intersections of Theology, Language, and Cognition in Medieval Tradition features a diversity of approaches to debating theological and philosophical dilemmas in the late Middle Ages and offers a forum for cross-disciplinary research on medieval philosophy and theology. While scholars tended to cross disciplinary boundaries throughout the Middle Ages, interdisciplinary practices reached an apex of sophistication in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, promoting thematic and methodological entwinements. Admittedly, by combining analytical tools and terminology from disparate disciplines, thirteenth- and fourteenth-century authors crafted a methodological perspective that enabled them to describe and explore numerous issues from different angles, offering novel solutions to old problems. This approach was adopted in various fields of knowledge and proved most fruitful in theology, where it prompted a veritable cross-pollination of ideas. Especially inspiring were the intersections of theological, linguistic, and epistemological realms, as studied by several contributors to this issue.
