The Sententiarum is a collection of theological writings meant to serve as a manual for the clergy. Most of the passages were culled from the works of Gregory the Great and St. Augustine. It is divided into three parts and covers subjects such as creation, the nature of evil, ecclesiastical orders, and the judgment of God.LatinSententiae (Sentences)Isidore, of Seville, Saint, -636former ownerLewis, John Frederick, 1860-1932former ownerLewis, Anne Baker1rIsidore of Seville, SententiarumSu[m]mum bonu[m] D[eu]s e[st]. q[ui]a incommutabilis e[st] et corru[m]pi om[n]ino non potest.
