A comprehensive and scholarly study

Fr. Rosini has, perhaps for the first time, provided a complete, well-balanced exposition of Scotus on Our Lady, with all the many inter-connections between the mystery of Mary and the whole of theology, illustrating plainly how the subtle resolution of the most complex of theological questions was not something achieved prior to any consideration of Mary, but exactly to the contrary: by meditating “in the spirit of prayer and devotion” (St. Francis of Assisi) on the Blessed and Immaculate Virgin in the mystery of Christ and the Church (Lumen Gentium, ch. 8, title).

Presentation

"Finally, an in-depth study of mariology from a Franciscan, scotistic perspective in English! In the Mariology of Blessed John Duns ScotusFr. Rosini starts from above—from the divine counsels that first predestined Christ and His Immaculate Mother to glory in an absolute manner (sin or no sin)—and then proceeds to unveil the profound truths about Mary in her relation to Christ, herself and to us. An intellectually demanding treatise, to be sure, but guaranteed to deepen one’s knowledge and love for His and our Immaculate Mother."

Fr. Maximilian Mary Dean, FI – Author of A Primer on the Absolute Primacy of Christ

"The invaluable insights of the genial and saintly John Duns Scotus must be renewed in our own day, especially in light of their extraordinarily positive mariological ramifications. The absolute predestination of Mary juxtaposed with the Incarnation constitutes a “mariological Copernican revolution,” and demands the attention of every serious student and professor of mariology."

Dr. Mark Miravalle, Professor of Mariology, Franciscan University of Steubenville

"We salute the Mariological achievement of Fr. Rosini. He has, perhaps for the first time, provided a complete, well-balanced exposition of Scotus on Our Lady, with all the many inter-connections between the mystery of Mary and the whole of theology, illustrating plainly how the subtle resolution of the most complex of theological questions was not something achieved prior to any consideration of Mary, but exactly to the contrary: by meditating “in the spirit of prayer and devotion” on the Blessed-Immaculate Virgin in the mystery of Christ and the Church."

Author

Fr. Ruggero Rosini

The author of this treatise, perhaps the only truly comprehensive presentation of Scotus’ Mariology in modern times, Fr. Ruggero Rosini, was born in 1913, in the small town of Zanigrado di Lonche (Villa Decani) near Pola (Pula), then in the Austro-Hungarian empire, annexed to Italy at the end of the first world war, then at the end of the second world war made part of Yugoslavia, now belonging to the Croatian Republic. As a teenager Fr. Ruggero entered the Franciscan Province of Venice, was professed in 1930 and ordained in 1938. He studied under the famed Croatian scotist, Fr. Charles Balic, and after being awarded the doctorate in theology was associated with Fr. Balic in the work of editing the works of Scotus and promoting the cause of Scotus and Mary. He died at the end of 1998 in the hospital of Motta di Livenza.
