Mediaeval Commentaries on the Sentences of Peter Lombard
Philipp W. Rosemann
Brill, Jan 23, 2015 - History - 566 pages
The work published in this third, and final, volume of Brill’s handbook on the tradition of the 'Book of Sentences' breaks new ground in three ways. First, several chapters contribute to the debate concerning the meaning of medieval authority and authorship. For some of the most influential literature on the Sentences consisted of study aids and compilations that were derivative or circulated anonymously. Consequently, the volume also sheds light on theological education “on the ground” - the kind of teaching that was dispensed by the average master and received by the average student. Finally, the contributors show that Peter Lombard’s textbook played a much more dynamic role in later medieval theology than hitherto assumed. The work remained a force to be reckoned with until at least the sixteenth century, especially in the Iberian Peninsula.
