Chapter Summary

When in 1282 the capitulum generale of the Franciscan order instructed all its members to copy Thomas Aquinas's works only together with the annotations of William de la Mare, not in the margins of the manuscript but on separate sheets, this decision surely gave credit to a reputed master of theology. This chapter discusses some of the main differences between William's and Aquinas's respective approaches. Comparing William de la Mare and Peter we can see that certain discussions take a more sophisticated shape. This is the case, for instance, with the problem of the subject of a science and of theology especially. The subject of a science, Peter explains, should focus upon that with which the sentences of that science deal, and upon that to which everything that is considered in it is attributed; furthermore, it should explain the name of the science under consideration.

Keywords: Thomas Aquinas; William De La Mare
