The subject matter of Divine Scripture

“Whoever approaches the reading of the Divine Scriptures for instruction ought to consider first what the nature of the subject matter is with which their discourse is concerned: because if he has knowledge of those things about which Scripture is composed, he will more easily thereafter perceive the truth or profundity of its words.

The subject matter of all the Divine Scriptures is the work of man’s restoration.”

¬ Hugh of St. Victor, “De Sacramentis,” Prologue.
