Description

The version of the Rule of St. Augustine used at the Abbey of St. Victor began with the command to love God above all things and one’s neighbour as oneself. Not surprisingly, then, love was a pervasive theme in the writings produced there, many of which are introduced and translated here:

  1. Five lyrical essays by Hugh (d. 1141): The Praise of Charity; The Betrothal Gift of the Soul; In Praise of the Spouse; On the Substance of Love; What Truly Should Be Loved?
  2. Richard (d. 1173), On the Four Degrees of Violent Love, compares romantic love and the love of God
  3. Achard (d. 1170), Sermon 5 and two of Adam’s sequences show how these authors wove love into their writings
  4. Excerpts from the Microcosmus by Godfrey (d. ca. 1195) summarize the central place of love in his humanistic theological anthropology
