Abstract

Abstract:

During the 12th century and early 13th century, natural law was a central interest of canon lawyers and Roman lawyers, but theologians also debated it on the basis of the exegesis of some key passages of Scripture. Peter Lombard, with his understanding of the content of Paul's Epistle to the Romans 1:19 and 2:13-14 is at the origin of a relevant tradition within the Parisian theological framework. The article examines how natural law is analyzed by the Lombard and his major successors, namely Peter Comestor, Peter the Chanter, and Stephen Langton.
