About this item

When Italian monk Gratian began assembling and reconciling literature on Christian discipline during the early 12th century, the definition of theology was so narrow that he would not have thought of himself as a theologian, says Wei, but his work has become the foundation for later broader definitions of theology and he is considered the founder of canon law. He covers Gratian and his book(s), the Bible, the practice and theory of penance, Gratian on penance, critiquing and correcting the scholastics, from penitential theology to the canon law of magic, Gratian as a sacramental theologian, and Gratian as a liturgist.
