    DescriptionGregory I (590-604) is often considered the first medieval pope and the first exponent of a truly medieval spirituality. Carole Straw places Gregory in his historical context and considers the many facets of his personality--monk, preacher, and pope--in order to elucidate the structure of his thought and present a unified, thematic interpretation of his spiritual concerns.

    Review quote
    "This is a first rate study of the elusive character of the preoccupations and assuptions of one of the most influential of the early Popes and, after Augustine, perhaps the most important of the Western Fathers."--"Journal of Theological Studies
