Summary

We have been examining the development of Aquinas’s proficiency using the sermo modernus style to compose prologues during his early years as a bachelor of the Bible and bachelor of the Sentences. Our examination has shown that Thomas composed prologues using the sermo modernus style when he was a bachelor of the Bible in Paris and may have done so even earlier, when he was studying with Albert in Cologne. All inception principia had to be given in this style, as did all university sermons. Furthermore, University regulations stipulated that masters had to use the same thema verse in their evening collatio at vespers that they had used for their morning sermon.
