Chapter Summary

This chapter describes scholastic theology in Paris around 1200 from the standpoint of the development of doctrine. It highlights what the author knows, and also what she does not know, about the theologians and how they viewed and practiced their profession. A recent approach seeking to grasp how Parisian scholastics around 1200 understood their task has been to study their prologues. Prologues to their biblical exegesis and sermon collections have been surveyed, if from a largely formal perspective. For systematic theology, it is the prologues to their Sentences commentaries that have drawn attention. These studies provide useful, if limited, insights. For the target period, the fullest discussion is by Nancy Spatz. She considers the prologues of Peter Comestor, the Pseudo-Peter of Poitiers Gloss, Hugh of St. Cher, two unpublished commentators of the early thirteenth century, and Albert the Great.

Keywords: Paris; Pseudo-Peter of Poitiers Gloss; scholastic theology
