But at times, synthesis must be generated. When Melanchthon or Cajetan or Faber Stapulensis or Bullinger thought by chance about Paul, what images and insights were likely to come to mind? In seeking to grant some access to these types of studies, we are attempting to get at mentalité. Further, by balancing the studies side by side, we can begin to come to some idea of what the more general theological idea of Paul was. Will this get at the deep consciousness of the illiterate tradesman? No. But it is far more likely than many other methods to grant access to the formation of any pastor or priest who would minister to him.

Paul in all the Mediterranean localities where he is said to have visited. Ephesus had its magnificent churches dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the Apostle John, and the Seven Sleepers, but no church celebrating the memory of Paul. In Asia Minor, the cult of Saint Thecla, the virgin protomartyr who, according to the Acts of Paul, was an early convert of Paul in Iconium far outshone the cult of Paul among the native population. 7 Even in Rome the tradition of the two martyr apostles together, Peter and Paul, not the memory of each of them individually, established the unique significance of the capital city for Christianity in East and West.

Paul did provide the expositio spiritualis of the Old Testament mysteries, but the language of Paul’s teaching did not call for additional allegorical or tropological interpretation. It was itself aperta doctrina, the most adequate expression of the theological content of the Christian faith. 34 Thomas’ Pauline commentaries did not introduce new methods and materials. They reflected the style of biblical teaching in the university and the mendicant studia and the literary conventions of the day.
