The chapter begins with a discussion on the place of medieval Christian thinker Peter Lombard in the intellectual history of Christianity. Lombard was born between 1095 and 1100 in the region of Novara in Lombardy and died in 1160 as a bishop of Paris. He was the author of a celebrated work entitled the Book of Sentences. This work severed for many centuries as the standard theological textbook in the Christian West. It was later replaced in the 16th century by Thomas Aquinasɧs Summa theologiae. The chapter also highlights Lombard's organization of the theological material, his method of presentation, and the way in which he shaped doctrine in several major areas.
