References to the Satisfaction Theory in Richard of Saint‑Victor’s Writing Ad me clamat ex Seir
Languages of publication
In his celebrated writing Cur Deus homo, Anselm of Canterbury († 1109) proposed the first systematical treatise on Christian soteriology in history. The greatest influence of Cur Deus homo lies in the concept of Christ’s redemption which is interpreted as satisfaction, with this being the specific idea which continues to attract the attention of theologians. One of the first promoters of Anselm’s idea was Richard of Saint‑Victor († 1173), who, in his work Ad me clamat ex Seir, focused on the idea of satisfaction in connection with the additional soteriological questions. In comparison with Anselm’s, however, Richard’s concept of satisfaction is extremely different. This article deals with the relationship between Anselm’s and Richard’s thinking in general, but also focuses on the acceptance of Anselm’s thinking in Ad me clamat ex Seir and analyses the acceptance of the term satisfaction as a soteriological category in Richard’s writing. It also mentions those aspects of Richard’s work which are original and the solutions to the aforesaid questions which he proposes.
