Hugh of Amiens (c. 1085-1164) was an important intellectual figure in the twelfth century who, during a long lifetime, served as a cleric, Cluniac monk, abbot and archbishop of Rouen. This book examines his writings to uncover the theological preoccupations of the period, particularly the development of systematic theology and views on the differences between the monastic and clerical ways of life.
