About this title


The Trinity and Creation are central themes in the theology of the Augustinian Canons of the Abbey of St. Victor during the twelfth century, when it flourished. In this volume, for the first time three of the most important Victorine theological works are introduced in complete English translations. On the Three Days, by Hugh of St. Victor (d. 1141), is a lyrical yet philosophical study of how the power, wisdom, and goodness of God can be known from the things God has made. Hughs lecture notes, Sentences on Divinity, show how divine ideas (primordial causes) serve God in creation. One of the enduring classics of Christian theology, On the Trinity, by Richard of St. Victor (d. 1173), analyzes the Trinity in terms of love. This volume also includes two of Adam of St. Victors sequences in praise of the Trinity.

From the Back Cover:

"Truly a proverbial 'idea whose time has come,' this volume makes accessible texts teachers have long longed for students to master. The centerpiece is certainly Richard's On the Trinity, but surrounding it with related texts from Hugh and polishing the collection with Adam's creation-and-Trinity-celebrating sequences was a stroke of genius." - Dennis D. Martin, editor and translator of Carthusian Spirituality (Classics of Western Spirituality)
