I have wondered, more than once, whether a course in the Liber Sententiarum should be offered, at least at the graduate level.

Robert Miller

I think it should be offered, as you suggest. As one who studied medieval history and Scholastic philosophy many years ago in college, I often wonder why this key figure was always treated almost as if he had served the purpose during the Middle Ages that the Educational Testing Service serves today.

I am an aspiring medieval historian (currently undergrad) who has been reading about Peter Lombard in R.W. Southern's book "Scholastic Humanism and the Unification of Europe." There are two books with this title, volumes I and II respectively, which are extraordinary histories of this fascinating period. One of the people the ever astute Mr. Southern covers is Peter Lombard and his role in building Scholasticism which would lead to the creation of systematic theology. I highly recommend the books to anyone who wishes to gain a deeper understanding of the development of scholasticism.
