The Theology of the Sacraments
Peter Lombard had been educated first at Bologna and then at Rheims. Evidently he was a brilliant student, and he was recommended around 1139 by no less a person than St. Bernard to the abbey school of St. Victor at Paris. This was the period when the schools at Paris were rapidly becoming famous, and in all probability the Lombard, as he is often called, was a student of Abelard. Later he himself taught at the cathedral school of Notre Dame, the nucleus of the future studium generale or university. In 1159, a year before his death, he became bishop of the city. His successor was the famous Maurice of Sully, builder of the great cathedral which still stands.
