Chapter Summary

From 1378 to 1380 Peter of Candia lectured ordinarie on Peter Lombard's Sentences at Paris. He comments on all four books of the Sentences, but his questions concerning each book are limited in number, if not in detail. He narrows his discussion on Book I to six questions; Book II has three questions; and Books III and IV examine only one question each. The principia of Peter of Candia are especially significant: they contain both the sermons and disputed questions for all four books, whereas often in catalogs one can find that principia refer to the sermons alone or the disputed questions alone. Peter of Candia endorses to a very great extent the declarative theology of Peter Auriol. The way in which Peter of Candia pursues theology in his commentary on the Sentences has many different facets, but his main approach is that of declarative theology.

Keywords: declarative theology; Peter Auriol; Peter Lombard's Sentences; Peter of Candia's commentary; principia of Peter of Candia
