Jean Kitchel.

There is also a discussion of the treatment of the problem of universals in Boethius, Porphyry, and Abelard

R. James Long and Maura O'Carroll SND
Christ Among the Medieval Dominicans. Representations of Christ in the Texts and Images of the Order of Preachers
Kent Emery, Joseph Wawrykow, and R. James Long
R. James Long is a contributing author, "The Cosmic Christ: The Christology of Richard Fishacre, OP", pp. 332-343.
Book description: Christ among the Medieval Dominicans adopts a genuinely multidisciplinary approach to its topic, bringing together the research of experts in a wide variety of fields. The essays in this volume, written by an acclaimed group of international scholars and presented at the University of Notre Dame Conference in Medieval Studies, provide many perspectives (theology, philosophy, spirituality, institutional and social history, art history, Latin and vernacular literature, and manuscript studies) on the life and thought of the Order of Preachers. The essays focus on the role of Christ within the devotion and imagination of the Order and in effect expose the “state of the question” in studies of this important medieval institution. As a whole, the volume tests commonplace but often unexamined presuppositions of medieval historiography, especially in the history of spirituality and literary criticism. The essays are accompanied by ample visual evidence from paintings, manuscript illustrations and texts, woodcuts, and engravings, complete with generous indices of manuscripts and names.

John Marenbon and R. James Long
R. James Long is a contributing author, "The Reception and Use of Aristotle by the Early English Dominicans", pp. 51-56.
Book description: Several specialists illustrate the wide range of Britain's contribution to medieval philosophy. A number of the discussions throw new light on celebratedBritish medieval philosophers, such as Robert Grossetetste and John Duns Scotus. Others show the importance of less well-known thinkers such as Richard Fishacre, Richard Rufus and Thomas Wylton. The subjects of the papers range widely, both chronologically-from Anselm of Canterbury in the eleventh century to the political and ethical writers of fifteenth-century Oxford and Cambridge - and in method - from philosophical analyses to manuscript studies.

Aspectus et Affectus: Essays and Editions in Grosseteste and Medieval Intellectual Life in Honor of Richard C. Dales
Gunar Freibergs and R. James Long
R. James Long is a contributing author, "A Thirteenth Century Teaching Aid: An Edition of the Bodleian Abbreviatio of the Pseudo Aristotelian De plantis,", pp. 87-103.
Book description: The 65th year of a scholar who has devoted 40 years to editing and elucidating Robert Grosseteste provides us with a collection of essays. Not surprisingly, they emanate from colleagues and former students of Richard Dales and reflect his interest, among other concerns, in Grosseteste's "aspectus et affectus" - range of vision and disposition of mind - those twin peaks with which the 13th century thinker helped to get Christian thought through Aristotle without mutual destruction. Joining Sir Richard Southern are 8 scholars whose contributions fill two parts of this book, "Robert Grosseteste" and "Medieval Intellectual Life". In addition to essays on Grosseteste are articles on Hugh of Amiens, Alfred of Sareschel's commentary on Avicenna, the Oxford Condemnations of 1277, a 13th-century teaching aid, and canonistic determinations on the stages of childhood.
Jeremiah Hackett and R. James Long
R. James Long is a contributing author, "Richard Fishacre", vol. 115, pp. 195-200.
Book description: Medieval philosophy is the collective name given to the philosophies of thinkers who lived between the end of the Roman Empire, c. 400, and the beginning of the modern era, c. 1490. The philosophers profiled in DLB Volume 115 were involved in education, public life and ecclesiastical administration, and thus represent the various schools of thought that existed throughout this vast period. This volume offers much new information on these scholars, and fills the gap in available literature. The entries, containing biographies, bibliographies and beliefs of the philosophers, reflect the most recent developments in the field.
R. James Long
These eighteen essays on Albert the Great, Aquinas, Robert Kilwardby, Roger Bacon, Averroes, al-Ghazali, and their influence from the Reformation to the twentieth century, are fitting tribute to the range and diversity of interests of a distinguished medievalist.
