Chapter Summary

Hugh of St.-Cher occupies an important position among the commentators on Peter Lombard's Sentences. His commentary exercised significant influence over subsequent generations of theologians. Just like most of his writings, Hugh's Sentences commentary is still unedited. Therefore, our knowledge regarding its doctrinal contents remains fragmentary and haphazard. The innovative form of Hugh's work probably contributed to the development of a new type of commentary, in which the link to the text of the Sentences played a much less prominent role. Consequently, a considerable portion of this chapter concerns the original structure of the opus. As a consequence, the overview of Hugh's theological opinions that occupies the second half of the chapter includes only a small selection of topics, leaving aside a significant number of important and interesting argumentations which still have to be studied.
