Peter Lombard wrote a theological treatise known as The Four Books of Sentences (Libri Quattuor Sententiarum) in the twelfth century.
Written approximately in 1150, it is a methodical theological compilation whose name comes from the sententiae, or authoritative interpretations on biblical texts, that it collected together. Born Giovanni di Fidanza, Bonaventure (Italian: Bonaventura, 1221–1244) was an Italian Catholic Franciscan who served as a bishop, cardinal, scholastic theologian, and philosopher. In addition to being the Order of Friars Minor's sixth Minister General, he briefly held the position of Bishop of Albano. Pope Sixtus IV canonized him on April 14, 1482, and Pope Sixtus V named him a Doctor of the Church in 1588. The "Seraphic Doctor" (Latin: Doctor Seraphicus) is the moniker given to him.
