*The medieval theology of the cross: Its greatest work is the pious Anselm’s Cur Deus Homo (‘Why God Became Man’). It is small, chaste, and with a childlike simplicity, and yet unspeakably deep…here for the first time the vicarious satisfaction of Christ (satisfactio vicaria) was set down with profound theological thought and penetration.
