Abstract

Haimo of Auxerre was one of the most influential exegetes of the Carolingian age, widely read for centuries. Yet, his work has been relatively little-studied by modern scholars. This panel brings together an international group who have been a part of the revival of Haimo studies. The three papers focus on Haimo’s work on Pauline epistles (his most widely read), his understanding of the Church in the Book of Isaiah, and how his exegesis relates to, and reflects Carolingian social realities.
