Hugh of Saint Victor (1096-1141) was an incredibly influential philosopher and theologian in 10th century France-his eloquence and writing earning him fame exceeding even that of St. Bernard. Yet despite his medieval celebrity, Hugh remains incredibly understudied in contemporary academica. Paul Rorem offers a basic introduction to Hugh's theology, through a comprehensive survey of his works. Drawing his evidence not only from Hugh's own descriptions of his work but from the earliest manuscript traditions of his writings, Rorem organizes and presents his corpus within a tri-part framework, treating each of Hugh's major works (and many minor ones) in its appropriate place, and orienting the reader to its contents, as well as its location in Hugh's overarching program of theological pedagogy.
