The principal signs and instruments of grace available to Christians as a result of Christ’s redeeming work are the sacraments of the Church – baptism, confirmation, the Eucharist, penance, extreme unction, holy orders, and marriage. These are the main subjects of Book 4 of the Sentences, comprising forty-two of its fifty Distinctions. In particular, penance and marriage (with regard to which the Lombard’s consensual theory was to prove extremely influential) receive extensive discussion. The last eight Distinctions are given over to a treatment of the last things: the bodily resurrection, purgation, hell, the last judgement, and eternity. The Book concludes with a reference to a text of Isaias that serves as an allegory of the function and purpose of the Sentences as a whole.

To render all of the Sentences into English is a very large task, and a self-effacing one, which the modern academic world does not always appreciate as it ought to. We should thank Professor Silano all the more warmly for this fine accomplishment, which – needless to say – belongs in the library of every seminary, theology department, and medievalist in the English-speaking world. More than that: this translation of the Sentences can be used successfully in many kinds of college-level courses, from general introductions to the medieval world to specialized courses on issues in dogmatic theology. — Philipp Rosemann, American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly

Retail price: EUR 36 This volume contains the final volume of Lombard's major work, described as "one of the least read of the world's great books", which treats the sacraments of the Church. Peter Lombard's major work, the four books of the Sentences, was written in the mid-twelfth century and, as early as the 1160s, the text was glossed and commented on in the schools. There is hardly a theologian of note throughout the rest of the Middle Ages who did not write a commentary on the Sentences. Yet in spite of its importance in Western intellectual history and its capacity to excite generations of students and teachers, the Sentences has received little attention in recent times. Indeed, it has been called "one of the least read of the world's great books". Book 3 closed with a reflection on the relative inadequacy of the Old Law, because what it commanded could not be done well or easily in the absence of grace. While the sacraments of the Old Law were only signs, the sacraments of the Church are also the principal instruments of that grace now freely available to Christians. These sacraments are the main subject of Book 4, taking up forty-two of its fifty Distinctions: Baptism is treated in Distinctions 2-6, confirmation in 7, the Eucharist in 8-13, penance in 14-22, extreme unction in 23, sacred orders in 24 and 25, and marriage in 26-42. The Book concludes with eight Distinctions on the last things - the resurrection of the body, purgation, hell, the last judgement, and eternity. Buch. Artikel-Nr. 1421
