Titolo / Title: «Dominus vobiscum». Presenza del Cristo, ecclesiologia e sacramentaria in Pier Damiani

Abstract: Peter Damian’s epistle 28, usually called Dominus vobiscum, shows a complex theological discussion. In fact, the author intertwines different subjects: the reform of the Church, the exaltation of monasticism, and, in particular, the primacy of the eremitical life. However, what is central in Peter Damian’s discourse is the Eucharistic sacrament, which the author considers from the standpoint of a theological sensitivity centered on the liturgical dimension of the celebration and on its spiritual and religious value. This contribution analyses Peter Damian’s treatment of the Eucharistic sacrament, placing it in the historical-theological and doctrinal context of the disputes on the sacrament that animated the Church since the mid-eleventh century.

Keywords: Eucharist; eleventh-century theological disputes; Reform of the Church; Berengar of Tours; Lanfranc of Canterbury.
