Victorine texts on the Sacraments, especially marriage and confession.
The Canons Regular of St. Victor were important contributors to the theology of the sacraments in the twelfth century. This volume introductes and translates much of Hugh’s treatment on the Christian Sacraments, as contained in De sacramentis 1.9 and 2.5-9, 11-12 and 14, as well as  his treatise on the Virginity of the Blessed Virgin, two treatises on penance by Richard of St. Victor, and the penitential of Peter of Poitiers.. The historical introductions and annotated translations make this volume suitable for courses on the development of  the theology of the sacraments through the twelfth century.
Hugh of St. Victor (died 1141) was the first important theologian at St. Victor of Paris after its founding by William of Champeaux 1108-1113.  Richard of St. Victor (d. 1173) was the most influential of Hugh’s successors. Peter of Poitiers (d. after 1216) was one of several Victorine specialists in Confession. In the arly 1t c. Hugh Feiss is the managing editor Victorine Texts in Translation.
