Chapter Summary

In Christian dialogue literature of late antiquity, PL Schmidt found three dialogues: Augustin's Soliloquia, Boethiu's Consolatio, and Isidor's Synonyma. The self-contemplative dialogues of the late Middle Ages were build on an old tradition, but they can be seen as a particularly convertible type that changes over time. This type occurs first in Christian literature of Late Antiquity with works of Augustine, Boethius and Isidore. This chapter discusses the late classical models and considers dialogues and their adjacent text types towards the end of the late Middle Ages. It also talks about the dialogues of the neighboring text types and the medieval use of Soliloquium. In the field of moral philosophy, many works were only from information gathered sentences and are therefore a part of modern research on moral philosophy anthologies. The original text of the chapter is in German.
