Chapter Summary

The debate over Mary's Conception, which began in the twelfth century, took as its basis the nature of sin, one of the main pillars of the Christian faith. This chapter shows how important authority figures within the Church from different countries became involved in debate over the Immaculate Conception and determines that, even though such people or institutions may not have recognized the doctrine, their thinking still advanced it. There were three major theological controversies over the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception: the one involving Bernard and the Canons, the one involving Scotus, and the one between the University of Paris and Monzón, but there were also a number of smaller skirmishes. Not all Catalan theologians taught and preached against the Immaculate Conception and their work shows that, in the kingdom of Aragon, they were very much aware of the new developments in Parisian theology.

Keywords: Catalan theologians; Christian faith; Immaculate Conception; Mary; Monzón; Paris; Parisian theology; sin
