John Mair

I have recently finished editing a book titled A Companion to the Theology of John Mair (for Brill’s Companions to the Christian Tradition) with Jeffrey C. Witt. For a complete bibliography of secondary scholarship on John Mair and a list (with hyperlinks) of primary sources, see Ueli Zahnd’s website dedicated to Mair.

The cover image for the volume is below. It is taken from the title page of Mair’s In Petri Hyspani Summulas Commentaria (Lyons, 1505) and is the only surviving contemporary image of Mair (the image below is from the University of Glasgow Library and is used with permission).
