Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the Christological account of Durandus of St.-Pourçain against the background of interpretations of Aquinas's teaching by contemporary Dominicans of Thomist persuasion. A good source for these alternative interpretations is the 1317 censure list against Durandus, in particular article 126, for it registers an interesting conflict between Hervaeus Natalis's Christology and standard Thomist view. The chapter relies on the template presented by Richard Cross in his book The Metaphysics of the Incarnation. In his examination of late thirteenth-century Christological accounts, Cross identifies two main models for understanding the hypostatic union: first, the 'substance-accident model' is based on the relation between a substance and its accidents as a suitable analogy for the relation between the assumed nature and Word. Secondly, the 'whole-part model' rejects the substance-accident analogy as inappropriate, and sees the assumed nature rather as an essential part of the whole 'Christ'.
