This book introduces and translates Sedulius Scottus’ Prologue to his Collectaneum in Apostolum and his commentaries on Galatians and Ephesians. The introduction outlines the historical context of composition, identifies Sedulius’ literary model - Servius, explains pertinent philological and stylistic issues of Sedulius’ Latin, explores his use of exegetical and theological sources - predominantly Jerome, Augustine, and Pelagius. In tracing the reception of Jerome, Augustine, and Pelagius, Sedulius reveals himself as an erudite theologian as he harmonizes these three men’s sometimes discordant voices.
