Aquinas's commentary on Scholastic Peter Lombard's second book (there are four) of Sentences. Petrus Lombardus "formed the framework upon which four centuries of scholastic interpretation of Christian dogmas was based." From the 1220s until the 16th century, no work of Christian literature, except for the Bible itself, was commented upon more frequently. The Sentences is a compilation of biblical texts, together with relevant passages from the Church Fathers and many medieval thinkers, on virtually the entire field of Christian theology as it was understood at the time. No one could look at Peter Lombard's work as clearly or as dispassionately as Aquinas. A brilliant meeting of minds, first edition in a very handsome Quentell edition, with an impressive binding and lovely red initials throughout. ISTCit00163000. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall
