Paris, Audoenus Parvus, 1557. Probably unrecorded Paris 16th-century edition of Petrus Lombardus' main work, in an edition prepared by Jean Aleaume, with a preface dated Paris 1537. The Italian born Petrus Lombardus (died c. 1160) became bishop of Paris in 1159. Nine years prior to that he finished writing his present theological and philosophical tract, a systematic summa of the theological questions of the time. Apart from some statements refuted by the church, the "Sententia" became one of the most influential compendia read and discussed throughout the late Middle Ages. - Several old ms. ownership entries on title, library stamp on title and first flyleaf, leaf 384 with old underlining in red ink, some browning throughout. - Not in Adams, STC (French), Brunet, or Graesse.
