Stephen Langton († 1228), later Archbishop of Canterbury, was a prominent master of theology, belonging to the first generation of scholars working at the faculty of theology of the nascent University of Paris. The Quaestiones Theologiae constitute his chief speculative work. Book III, Volume 2, offers a critical edition of 26 disputed questions on virtues. Each question is accompanied by a critical apparatus and source notes. This edition is preceded by an extensive analysis of Langton's theories of love and fear. Most of the questions in this volume revolve around Langton's concept of charity or love (caritas), understood as a gratuitous virtue, which is the foundation of moral perfection, merit, and salvation.
