Chapter Summary

Alexander of Hales, an Englishman, master of theology at the University in Paris, who at the height of his career entered the Franciscan order, is an important but little known figure of the thirteenth century. His commentary on the Sentences is an early example of this genre and an early expression of his theology. Its form and method are still fluid. After a short history of the scholarship and some historical remarks this chapter characterizes Alexander's commentary formally by describing the known manuscripts and attempting to establish its date. Then it discusses Alexander's method and his approach to the Sentences, which he was the first master to use for his ordinary lectures. Finally, a few texts on various theological questions will provide an insight into Alexander's theology.
