Chapter Summary

Lanfranc's growing understanding of Augustine's authority is perceptible in the two distinctive, perplexing characteristics of the commentary. First, his early exegesis of Romans was radically discordant with the Florus compendium of Augustinian material. Second, Lanfranc's exegesis after the epistle to the Galatians steadily conformed with the Ad Galatas, but disagreed with his interpretation of Romans. Augustine's authority caused significant reappraisals of Pauline theology. Lanfranc's goal was always the disciplined life of his students. Pure teaching led to faith, and to works, and to love of God. This was the unchanging purpose of Lanfranc's academic program, and any method that violated it was prohibited.
