Dear readers:

Please join the Library in congratulating Dr. Jesse Mann, Drew's Theological Librarian, on the publication of a critical edition (with English translation and commentary) of Juan de Segovia's Epistola ad Giullielmum de Orliaco. This work appears in a volume entitled Johannes von Segovia, Opera Minora. Editionen mit Übersetzung und Einleitung. Hrsg. von Ulli Roth. Wiesbaden: Harrassowitz, 2023, pp. 291-423. The book is vol. 12 in the series Corpus Islamo-Christianum, Series Latina.

Juan de Segovia (d. 1458) was a 15th-century Spanish theologian who was a prominent figure at the Council of Basel (1431-1449). He wrote a monumental history of that council, and he also produced a unique tri-lingual Koran (now lost). Segovia's Epistola is a treatise-length letter of spiritual advice that includes an unusual method for reading the Bible and an interesting method for meditating on the life of Christ.
