Within the concluding levels of the 11th century Eucharistic controversy, which became on even if, and the way, sacramental consecration replaced the character of bread and wine on the altar, Alberic of Monte Cassino composed a small yet vital manuscript. Alberic used to be the main well known instructor of his age, and his treatise, buttressed by way of attract the authority of the Church Fathers, was once acknowledged by way of contemporaries to have ''utterly destroyed'' the arguments of his opponent, Berengar of excursions, who held that the bread and wine didn't switch materially into the physique and blood of Christ. regrettably, smooth students had lengthy believed this important record misplaced. This e-book, including the complete Latin textual content and translation of this manuscript, demonstrates that Alberic's treatise, faraway from being misplaced, is a textual content that may be pointed out and has been identified to students for years. by way of exhibiting conclusively that this article was once in truth written by means of Alberic, Radding and Newton rework our knowing not just of the details of the talk and papal politics, but in addition of the highbrow strategy through which theological truths took form in medieval Church councils.
