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).

Fantastic introduction to the thought of the man called the Subtle or Marian Doctor... The author makes the claim that Scotus interprets all of theology in a Marian perspective... and I believe it ... Read full review

"Finally, an in-depth study of mariology from a Franciscan, scotistic perspective in English! In the Mariology of Blessed John Duns Scotus Fr. 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."

"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."
