« New Sources of Isidorian Angelology (Sententiae I.10) »

Abstract : Isidore devotes a long chapter of his Sententiae (I.10) to the angels. The sources of this chapter were studied by Pierre Cazier and Attilio Carpin. However, it is possible to add thirteen other sources not yet identified: in the Bible, in Ambrose, Augustine, Cassian, Gregory the Great and Quodvultdeus. The identification of these new sources leads, conversely, to reject certain comparisons suggested by Cazier. These discoveries shed a new light on chapter I.10 of the Sententiae, both from a theological point of view (reference to Phil 2:6 in §8 and §16) and from a literary one (there are some fine examples of rewriting). In §18, the comparison of the Sententiae, the Etymologiae and their common source, Gregory the Great’s Moralia in Iob, makes it possible to question the relative chronology of Isidore’s works (without definitive conclusion, however). Finally, the analysis of §17 leads to the conclusion that Augustine’s De diuinitate daemonum probably did not circulate in Visigothic Spain.
