Abstract

IN this article I propose to reopen the long-abandoned search for Peter Lombard’s
glossed Bible, so earnestly carried on by Ignatius Brady, the
esteemed editor of the Sentences. Marcia Colish summarizes the history of
that search in her monograph on Peter Lombard, noting Brady’s reliance on
Beryl Smalley’s researches and documenting its ultimate futility. Both
Smalley and Brady adduced substantial evidence proving that the Lombard
had glossed most of the Bible, but in spite of an intensive search that lasted
more than a decade, Brady could find no evidence that any books from Peter
Lombard’s glossed Bible other than the Psalms and the Pauline Epistles were
still extant.
