Chapter Summary

Stephen Langton's commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard can be considered the first of his theological works to have received a scholarly edition. This chapter talks about the Stephen Langton's career, and Stephen Langton's theological works. It also discusses transmission and structure of Langton's commentary and Langton's theological method. Langton briefly considers this chapter of the Sentences, clearly identifying both the Peter Lombard's imprecision in quoting Boethius's definition, and what he holds to be the weak point of his argumentation. Langton's conception of the person, more precise than the Lombard's, is also useful in the context of one of the most controversial arguments of the Sentences, namely, the discussion of whether Christ qua man is aliquid.
