Eugene Vodolazkin, a Russian scholar specializing in the Middle Ages (primarily secular texts) has a fascinating essay here entitled "The New Middle Ages". He makes a very important point regarding medieval works - What mattered in the text was not so much who said something, but what was said. Quoting him,
"The stability of a medieval text depended in large part on its closeness to the Holy Scripture, the primary book in the Middle Ages. The Holy Scripture - the text of texts, standing at the center of spiritual life - had a special fate"
He then addresses how any text was evaluated,
Authorship was unimportant ... What mattered was the text itself and its correspondence (or lack thereof) to truth ... This is why medieval writings are, generally, anonymous."
Precisely, our attitude here at CFP.
This stands in stark contrast to today where people are largely inventing their own fantasy reality, the Bible having been relegated to obsolescence in their fatally-flawed worldview. So much for "enlightened" modernity.
