 Reason and Hope in a Changing World.

Show Summary Details


Disciplined intellectual endeavour developed in the universities such as Paris and Oxford, whence masters (magistri) came to take part in church administration. The Paris theology of about 1200 had been dominant by concerns of pastoral care, but now it became increasingly speculative in character, influenced by the ideas of Aristotle conveyed through Arabic philosophers. The thought of Joachim of Fiore embodied a sharpened conviction of stages within history and the hope of its culmination in a Third Age.
