The Canons following the Rule of St Augustine at St Victor in Paris were some of the most influential religious writers of the Middle Ages. They combined exegesis and spiritual teaching in a theology that was deeply rooted in tradition but also attuned to current developments in the schools of Paris. The importance of Victorine Christology in this great age of theological speculation is unquestionable. The writings translated in this volume cover the foundational and maturing periods of Victorine Christology during the 1130s to the 1150s when Hugh of St Victor championed the paradigm of the “assumed man” (homo assumptus)and Robert of Melun advanced his Christology into the most comprehensive treatment in the twelfth century.
Christopher P. Evans teaches theology and is the Dean of Art & Sciences at the University of St. Thomas (Houston, Texas). His recent publications include Hildegardis Bingensis opera minora: Vita sancti Ruperti confessoris, Vita sancti Dysibodi episcopi, et Solutiones questionum xxxviii (2016); “Victorine Christology: A Theology of the Homo Assumptus” in A Companion to the Abbey of Saint Victor in Paris (2017), and Simon of Tournai, On the Incarnation of Christ: Institutiones in sacram paginam 7.1–67 (2017).

“The translations in this volume are of a uniformly high standard, always attaining a level of clarity and sometimes elegance in the presentation of arguments (…) it helps make better known the dynamism of Victorine thought about Christ.” (Constant J. Mews, Clayton, in Francia-Recensio, 1, 2019)
