This chapter sums up the key findings of this book concerning the book collection and the scholars and scribes of Salisbury Cathedral during the late 11th to early 12th centuries. The Salisbury canons provide the earliest English examples of several important elements in the 12th-century renaissance including a renewed interest in the works of the patristic and classical auctores and a more ratiocinative scrutiny of the text of the Scripture. However, there is little evidence that developments of scholastic method at Salisbury were advanced and evidence suggests that the Salisbury canons seem to have preserved the traditional method of study following the ordo narrationis of the Bible.
