Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Ficino, Pico and Savonarola: The Evolution of Humanist Theology 1461/2-1498 contains the table of contents, and acknowledgements. Humanist theology should be seen as the culmination of a tendency to bring pagan classical texts and Scriptures into relation with one another. This tendency can already be observed in patristic and scholastic theology, due to the tension in Christianity between the Greek logos and the Christian logos, already implied in the New Testament and seen most clearly in Augustine and Thomas Aquinas. The inseparability of the spiritual and political crises, and consequently the inseparability of their solutions in humanist theology, has been demonstrated in the book analysing a variety of sources in which religious terminology and imagery appear in a political context and in which political terminology and imagery appear in a religious context.

Keywords:humanist theology; political crises; scholastic theology
