Summary

The Canons Regular of St. Victor were important contributors to the theology of the sacraments in the twelfth century. This volume introduces 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.
