Abstract

The Regular lecture on the Bible (Lectura ordinaria super sacram scripturam), a commentary attributed to Henry of Ghent (1220-96), is one of the most remarkable medieval commentaries on the Bible of the late thirteenth century. In this work the author wishes to give what he labels "a commentary according to the literal and historical sense". In the epilogue to the work he writes explicitly, that he leaves aside a spiritual exposition.2 This would not be a "spiritual commentary" in any sense of the word.
