Chapter Summary

The intellectual history of Cologne in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries has largely been studied from the standpoint of Thomism, Albertism, and the dominance of the via antiqua. Two of the leading historians of fourteenth-century Cologne, Gabriel Löhr and Martin Grabmann, concentrated their attention on the Dominicans and the strength of Thomism at Cologne in the post-Eckhart period. The first item representing the other side of Cologne's intellectual life is an abbreviation or Extractio of the Lectura Oxoniensis of Adam Wodeham, Ockham's closest but often independent disciple and fellow Franciscan. In addition to the Cologne redaction of Wodeham's Sentences commentary a number of other works by fourteenth-century English authors found their way into the scholarly community at Cologne. Dominican interest in "modern" English theologians was not unusual. Almost all German manuscripts of the English Franciscan, Robert of Halifax, belonged to Dominican convents.
