At the last General Audience of 2009, this past Wednesday, Pope Benedict spoke about the 12th century's Peter Lombard. Benedetto XVI Forum also posted a translation with photos. The Daily Bulletin has the original Italian with summaries in several languages. Asia News has an article. The Pope spoke about Peter Lombard's life and about the 4 books of Lombard's The Sentences, which were used in theology schools until the 16th century, and were studied by the greatest theologians of the 13th century. He said, "I wish to underscore how the organic presentation of the faith is an indispensable requirement. In fact, the single truths of the faith illumine each other, and a total unified view of these truths shows the harmony of God's plan of salvation and the centrality of the mystery of Christ." The Pope spoke of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and its Compendium as offering today "this complete picture of the Christian Revelation that we should accept with faith and gratitude."
