The fourteenth-century controversy among the Dominican Durandus of St Pour?ain and his order performs a imperative position in explaining the later luck of Thomism. Durandus's self sufficient process earned him censures from Dominican experts, as he looked as if it would jeopardize the order's experience of doctrinal id. via an in depth exam of the proper theological matters, this e-book follows the process the talk to bare the numerous function which Franciscan theology performed within the Dominican interpretation of Aquinas.

Unlike the absolute categories, relative predication signiWes something ‘extrinsically attached’ (extrinsecus aYxa) to the thing. 10 Accordingly, Gilbert argued that in God the relative properties are in the persons and in the essence not intrinsically (interius), but ‘externally attached’.
