Intellectual Interests of Engelbert of Admont
Columbia University Press, 1947; Series: Studies in History, Economics and Public Law, 530
This dissertation is a preliminary study of Engelbert, abbot of Admont from 1297 to 1327, based on printed texts of about half his works, together with rotographs of the unpublished De fascinatione, and a careful review of previous studies of Engelbert’s writings, some of which reproduce considerable portions of unprinted treatises. The results are well worth publication. Dr. Fowler has been able to study all the texts which are most significant for an analysis of Engelbert’s intellectual interests, and the list of manuscripts shows that these were also the most valued by his own and following generations. His readers will regret the unavoidable postponement of more adequate estimates of individual works for which the manuscripts are indispensable.
