Peter Lombard was a scholastic theologian, Bishop of Paris, and author of Four Books of Sentences, which became the standard textbook of theology. From the 1220s until the 16th century, no work of Christian literature, except for the Bible itself, was commented upon more frequently. All the major medieval thinkers, from Albert the Great and Thomas Aquinas to William of Ockham and Gabriel Biel, were influenced by it. Book 4: On the Doctrine of Signs. Martin Luther discussed it as a way to speak against speculative theology.

The Book was translated in 1917 by Elizabeth Frances Rogers 1892-1974
I think this book would make a good addition and a new author to the Librivox collection.

The book has a good history of the times as well as the last book of The Sentences which is about the sacraments.
