Chapter Summary

An early and durable initiative in the field of theology was made by the Pseudo-Peter of Poitiers gloss. The work of the author of Pseudo-Peter of Poitiers gloss, who treated all four books of the Sentences as a text in its own right was perpetuated by three later, if equally anonymous continuators. There are three complete manuscripts of the first version of the gloss, one of which is bound in a codex unique in containing all four of its versions. An examination of marginalia in these manuscripts shows that they remained in use well into the thirteenth century, despite the development of new genres of theological literature. The survival and use of the gloss over its extended life span thus urge us to reconsider how the Lombard was received and appropriated in the century after his death, and how at least some scholastics were initiated into the study of theology.
