Starting from the theory of scriptural interpretation elaborated by Hugh of St. Victor, the Augustinian Canons of twelfth-century St Victor in Paris were leading theorists and practitioners of scriptura exegesis. This volume contains complete translations of Hugh of St Victor's (d. 1141) Didascalicon, On Sacred Scripture and its Authors and The Diligent Examiner as well as Godfrey of St. Victor's Foimtaii of Philosophy.

The surfeit of translations of patristic and medieval commentaries on the Bible is changing not only how the Bible is interpreted today but also how theologians use the Bible. Interpretation of Scripture offers a judicious selection of writings from sophisticated thinkers who addressed the hermeneutics of biblical interpretation. This rich and substantive volume puts to flight the cliches about medieval exegesis and gives biblical scholars as well as theologians much to ponder.
