The Prayers and Meditations of St. Anselm with the Proslogion


Author Information

Saint Anselm, Archbishop of Canterbury, Benedicta Ward

Translated and with an introduction by Benedicta Ward with a foreword by R. W. Southern

Judges' and contributors' comments

Peter Forster: St Anselm set out in his Proslogion the ‘ontological argument’ for God’s existence.  If by God we mean ‘that then which nothing greater can be conceived’, then existence must be part of his perfection.  It has vexed, teased and delighted philosophers of religion ever since, and had a particular influence on Karl Barth.
