This chapter discusses De sancta trinitate et operibus eius (On the Holy Trinity and its Works), a treatise on grammar and rhetoric written by Rupert of Deutz between 1112 and 1116. In addition to developing an encyclopedic salvation history through extended commentaries on the historical books of the Bible, De sancta trinitate addresses theological concerns up to Rupert's own time. It is divided thematically into three parts: the works of the Father (Genesis), the works of the Son (the remaining historical books of the Old Testament and the Evangelists), and the works of the Holy Spirit. Rupert offers his views on the human sciences and tries to bring the seven liberal arts under the aegis of the Trinity and its works. He also treats rhetoric in relation to Scripture in a distinctive and even surprising manner.
