This course will cover the Christian intellectual tradition beginning with Augustine of Hippo (354-430), and ending on the eve of the Protestant reformation with thinkers such as Gabriel Biel (c.1425-95). In between, such influential thinkers as Boethius, Anselm of Canterbury, Thomas Aquinas, and William of Ockham will be discussed, as will several important controversies, such as that over the nature of the sacraments, the nature of authority in the Church and society, the poverty controversies, and the rise (and fall) of various reform movements within the Church. This could be a History elective.
