Busy Busy Busy

I apologize for the lack of posting. The wretched world of Systematic Theology has me up to my ears in stuff to do. I've finally got a paper topic for my Sacraments class, but...I can't find any sources. So, I look to you, beloved readers, to help me. I'm writing on Hugh of St. Victor's Sacramental Theology, particularly the interplay between creation and Sacraments. I need some resources!

The second thing that's taking up my time (but I'm glad for it) is...tutoring Greek. I really really enjoy it. For one, it keeps my mind fresh. It also provides an opportunity for me to teach, which allows me to see where I fail pedagogically.

So, send me your resources on Hugh of St. Victor if you have any (I know we're all Biblical studies people here, but...think back to that buddy who was a Medievalist and call him).

I know this has nothing to do with your studies, but I thought you might be interested. Ben Witherington III has an interesting discussion of the formation of the cannon posted on his blog.

You might want to try: Hugh of Saint Victor: On the Sacraments of the Christian Faith. I don't know where you would buy one but your school's library might have a copy or you could sign up with Questia and read it online (I don't know how much it costs).

There's a brief paper by Rebecca Moore entitled, "The Primacy of Faith in Hugh of St. Victor’s Sacramental Theology" available online here.

You might also want to sign up for the SAGE journals that they are offering free access to for the month of November. You might be able to find something in one of the journals.

Hey Nick,

Yeah, Hugh's book is actually what I'm doing the paper on, but it's hard to find sources for it. But thanks for passing those other ones along!
