The Logic of the Trinity

Paul Thom

Fordham University Press

Peter Lombard intended his Sentences to be an authoritative compilation of those of the Church's teachings that were to be taken as precedents in any future theological discussion. As such, it was meant to silence all ‘false’, ‘hateful’ and ‘poisonous’ views that could not be justified with reference to these precedents. The Sentences set the research agenda for later Christian philosophers who wished to avoid being condemned as heretics. The work returns to the central ideas of Augustine and Boethius regarding divine simplicity and the divine attributes. It restates the views on divinity, the Persons and the properties which Bernard had advocated against Gilbert, but also shows the influence of Abelard's thought.

Keywords:   Abelard, Attributes, Augustine, Boethius, Divinity, Gilbert, Heretic, Persons, Properties
