Henry was an important and influential thinker. Although his major two works, namely his fifteen Quodlibeta and his Quaestiones Ordinariae (Summa), along with his previously unedited works, are currently being edited, there has been no synthesis of his positions since Karl Werner's work of 1878, Heinrich von Gent als Reprasentant des christlichen Platonismus im dreizehnten Jahrhundert. The chapters would offer: a critical overview of current research, the major themes in Henry's life and writings, and how they are being interpreted at the start of the 21st century, written by 18 experts in the field.

Review quote

"A welcome contribution to medieval studies, particularly because there is to date no "companion" or sufficient "introductory work" dedicated to this important scholastic thinker." John T. Slotemaker, Boston College. In: Religious Studies Review Vol. 37, No. 4 (December 2011), p. 287. "Der Band ist als Einfuhrung gedacht und diesen Zweck erfullt er, in den behandelten Themen ist er absolut auf der Hohe des Forschungsstandes oder fasst diesen gewinnbringend zusammen" Henrik Wels Institut fur Philosophie, Freie Universitat Berlin. In: Sehepunkte, 12, (2012), Nr. 9.
