Taking Hugh of St. Victor's magisterial On the Sacraments of the Christian Faith as his source text, Dillard applies the methods of analytic philosophy to develop a systematic theology in the spirit of Christian Platonism. Themes examined include the existence of God, creation ex nihilo, modality and causality, divine immutability and eternity, divine exemplarity, sin, dualism, personhood, evil, ecclesiology, and resurrection, and beatitude. Throughout his rigorous study, Dillard underscores the importance of Hugh's theological anthropocentrism, rationalism, sacramental realism, and pragmatism. Hugh's highly original views are placed in their proper historical context and also related to contemporary concerns. The fascinating questions that Dillard explores remain pressing for readers interested in philosophy, theology, religion, and the history of medieval thought.
