“Publishing in the Aftermath of the Berengar Controversy: Anselm’s Monologion and Proslogion” Anselm’s account of how he published the Monologion and Proslogion emphasizes the role of Archbishop Hugh of Lyon, papal legate. This presentation argues that he did so in order to obtain the protection of an apostolic mandate against potential criticism.
