In On Morals he extols the value of the nine virtues in a sophisticated narrative where each of the virtues speaks for itself, explaining its importance.

Roger Bacon: On Signs

Translated with an introduction and notes by Thomas S. Maloney.
Mediaeval Sources in Translation 54. 2013. xii, 148 pp.
ISBN 978–0–88844–304–5 • Paper • $19.95

Roger Bacon's Opus maius represents an attempt to create a whole new vision of what Christian education should be, one centered on service to the Church. One chapter of this work, “On Signs,” is the most comprehensive and innovative treatise on semiotics in the thirteenth century. To understand the myriad ways in which things and words signify, Bacon says, is “a thing of marvelous usefulness and beauty.”
