Lupus of Ferrières and Hincmar of Reims are presented, both Carolingian scholars of high calibre, equipped with philological methods. Their theological views were grounded on a keen study of the Church-Fathers and of oecumenical councils; for this purpose texts had to be absolutely correct. Hincmar confuted his enemies and the heretical position of Gottschalk of Orbais (†867/870) on the predestination and Trinity with support of many quotations from the Fathers; points in discussion included authenticity of a pseudo-Augustinian work and interpolated sentences in the acts of the Councile of Costantinople (A.D. 680-681). Philology was a mean of defense of orthodoxy and Veritas.
