unusual allegories and comparisons - Bernard Clairvaux

Steven Avery

86 Bernard of Clairvaux, Sententiæ I.1, in Bernard, 1957-1977, 6,2:7. The Glossa ordinaria, 1603,
VI:1414, cites Bernard as suggesting that the three infernal worms of Is 66 likewise bear
witness: “His qui in coelo sunt datur testimonium beatitudinis, his qui in terra, iustificationis,
his qui in inferno sunt, damnationis. Primum testimonium est gloriæ, secundum gratiæ,
tertium iræ.”

Some similarity to Cyprian in his next chapter in Unity of the Church.

Irrelevant to basic textual elements.
