Chapter Summary

Of the Parisian Sentences commentaries composed by secular theologians in the golden age of medieval philosophical theology, from the Sentences lectures of Thomas Aquinas and Bonaventure in the 1250s down to the Black Death, Harclay's commentary on Book I is the earliest that survives, the most extensive, the most copied, and the most influential. Building on the detective work of some of the giants of twentieth-century scholarship - Charles Balić, Victorin Doucet - this chapter presents both of the commentaries on Book I and Book II, offering in an appendix a complete question list that includes the explicit citations of university theologians. Balić also understood that there was a close relationship between Harclay and Aufredo Gonteri Brito. One of the distinctive characteristics of Gonteri's Sentences commentary is the often very extensive divisio textus placed before each distinction, in which the author summarizes what the Master, Peter Lombard, himself had to say.
