A 2010 course by Alexander Hwang at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary introduces “to the lives and thoughts of four significant medieval theologians each representing a different medieval context: Prosper of Aquitaine (380-455), Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109), Thomas Aquinas (1225- 74), and Julian of Norwich (1342-1423).” Special emphasis is “on the theme of grace and freedom, with attention to how these theologians integrate practice and belief, spirituality and theology.”
