HISTORY of Christian Theology

Peter Abelard (A.D. 1079–1142) was a preeminent logician and theologian who firmly fixed the tradition of scholasticism, the attempt to provide a formal, rational expression to received ecclesiastical doctrines. His writing regarding Christ’s atonement help form the basis for the Moral Influence theory of the atonement that was subsequently adopted by many liberal Protestants.
