Chapter Summary

John Duns Scotus left in his wake a generation of Franciscan theologians both on the continent and in England who sought to complete the Subtle Doctor’s work, expound and explain it, correct it, and sometimes overturn it. Reflecting the specific influence of Scotus’ teaching, and the general interests of the Franciscan theological tradition, the work of these theologians constitutes a vibrant chapter in the history of Scholasticism. The written quodlibeta left by continental Franciscans reflect both the promise of the intense debate after Scotus and the difficulties of sorting out issues of authorship, dating, and textual interrelationships. The titles of the questions considered reflect not only broad theological issues, but also positions associated with Franciscans. This chapter focuses on the textual difficulties. While our understanding remains imperfect, the contribution of three-quarters of a century of scholarship has significantly changed the picture painted by Glorieux.
