Review:

A major contribution to recent advancements in medieval biblical studies [ ]. "Form and Function" has, in a very important way, raised as many questions as it has answered, and has suggested many fruitful areas of research for historians of material and religious culture, book and manuscript history, art history, liturgy, exegesis, preaching and monastic reform. Jessalynn Bird, Naperville, IL. In: sehepunkte 14 (2014), Nr. 1 [15.01.2014]."
