Chapter Summary

This bibliography presents a list of abbreviations, reference articles and books relevant to the book Richard of St. Victor's Theory of Imagination. Richard of St. Victor developed original ideas about the faculty of imagination in a twelfth-century Parisian context. Related to the historical study of philosophical psychology, this book acknowledges that the faculty of imagination, being a necessary precondition for human reasoning and a link between soul and body, plays an important role in Richard's understanding of the human soul. Richard also deals with the interpretation of biblical language, metaphors, rhetoric, and the possibility of creative imagination. Considering all these aspects of the imagination in Richard's texts improves our understanding of his theological epistemology and sheds new light on the theory of the imagination in the history of medieval philosophy in general.

Keywords: biblical language; creative imagination; Richard of St. Victor
