Summary

We have been concerned thus far primarily with prologues of Thomas Aquinas. The reason for focusing on the work of one master was to examine how he developed his proficiency in using the sermo modernus style over his student years and how engaging in the practices of preaching and writing prologues influenced him over the course of his entire career from a young cursor biblicus to a mature “master of the sacred page.” The prologues of other masters were introduced only for comparative purposes and to show that this emphasis on the arts of preaching and writing prologues was not something peculiar to Thomas, the Dominicans, or the middle decades of the thirteenth century.
