This chapter examines Anselm of Canterbury, one of the most important thinkers in Christian history. In contrast to many who came before him, Anselm’s view of salvation did not consider the Devil to be a major figure, but instead focused on humanity’s culpability and the atoning work of Christ in salvation.
