Show Summary Details


This chapter is devoted to Hervaeus Natalis’s quodlibetal disputations, thus introducing the quodlibetal exchange between Hervaeus and Durandus, sustained between the years 1308, roughly when Durandus’s early commentary was made public, and 1317, date of the second censure list. Hervaeus’s Quodlibets show how his interpretation of Aquinas’s Trinitarian theology was profoundly shaped by Scotist insights not necessarily concordant with Thomism, but which Hervaeus skillfully adapts to suit Thomist priorities.

Keywords: Hervaeus Natalis; Quodlibets; Duns Scotus; Trinitarian theology; relations; formal distinction; communicability; divine essence as universal
