Chapter Summary

An analysis of the Romans commentary suggested that the Ambrose commentary was Lanfranc's single direct source for Romans, but the Augustine material was extracted from the Florus Collectaneum after the commentary's composition. The very distinct methods of extracting from each of the sources, Ambrose and Augustine/Florus, persist throughout the entire commentary. Lanfranc's commentary never demonstrates the dependence upon the Florus material that is evident with the Ambrose material. Lanfranc's interpretation of the crucial issues of his commentary, faith and the law, shifted in the Galatians commentary, indicating that Lanfranc was confronted with a new and intriguing exegesis of the epistles. Augustine distinguished works of the law from the spiritual law and emphasized the possibility, even the necessity, of faith in fulfilling the law.
