Description

Was Thomism immediately accepted or did it go through a period of condemnation prior to its ascendance in the Catholic Church during the medieval period? This book settles that debate by showing that Thomism was condemned at first, prior to being accepted. There has been a recent flurry of research in medieval universities over the last century, including lists of university registers, histories of the earliest days of the medieval university life and curriculum. Dr. Wiltshire's work would fall into the latter category, which entails a new approach to understanding how medieval universities partook in condemnations of the work of Thomas Aquinas prior to their warm reception. It is a mistake to think that Thomism was immediately accepted without hesitation, and this book corrects that misinterpretation by showing that there was resistance to the philosophy at first.
