Chapter Summary

Thomas Aquinas first commented on Peter Lombard's Liber sententiarum at the beginning of his career at the University of Paris in 1252-1256. In its final form the Scriptum super libros Sententiarum is a stunning intellectual achievement in its breadth, coherence, and even its size. The principal text of the manuscript, in two columns covering 120 folios, is Thomas's Parisian Scriptum, that is, his first commentary on the Sentences. This marginal commentary represents a reportatio of Thomas's second commentary, now known as the Lectura romana. This second commentary, which is also in an Italian hand of the latter part of the thirteenth century, has been placed in this manuscript very carefully in relation to the first commentary.

Keywords: Lectura romana; Liber sententiarum; Thomas Aquinas
