Abstract

Peter Lombard was a theologian and bishop of Paris who wrote Glosses on select books of the Bible and a theological textbook called the Book of Sentences. He had a significant impact on the development of medieval theology through his Sentences, as this work became the central textbook of theology from the early thirteenth century until the sixteenth century. Most of the philosophers and theologians of the later Middle Ages wrote commentaries on the Sentences. Through his systematic ordering of Christian theology, Peter Lombard deeply influenced the development of medieval philosophy and theology.
