Show Summary Details


This chapter is occupied with an examination of the first Dominican censure against Durandus in 1314, which represents the climax of the conflict. The articles concerning Durandus’s Trinitarian theology show how Durandus’s thesis of a real distinction between the divine essence and relations was perceived as a natural consequence of his understanding of relations as modes of being. Durandus’s conclusions were censurable on the grounds that they were anti-Aristotelian and departed from Lateran theology.

Keywords: First Dominican censure; Trinitarian theology; real distinction; relations; modes of being; anti-Aristotelian; heterodox; heresy
