Since the pioneering work of Beryl Smalley, the figure of Andrew of St. Victor (+1175) has attracted growing attention. This volume presents the editio princeps of Andrew of St. Victor's commentary on the biblical books of Samuel and Kings. Apart from a commentary (written before 1147 and surviving in nine manuscripts), an analysis of Andrew's sources, and a study of the position of this commentary in the history of biblical interpretation and its relation to twelfth-century teaching and medieval literary theory. The present edition also includes two other related works by Andrew, which are associated with the commentary on Samuel and Kings: an excerpt of the last part of the book of Chronicles and an exegetical treatise on the ruling years of the kings of Judah and Israel. Andrew was a regular canon of the Parisian abbey of St. Victor, founded in 1108, which in the twelfth century had developed into a prestigious centre of spiritual learning. His commentaries are a rich source for the history both of biblical hermeneutics and of interreligious dialogue during the Middle Ages.
