The Scholastics

Students of Medieval Bologna

The "Scholastics" refer to the 13th to 15th Century Christian scholars and theologians, such as Thomas Aquinas, that revisited the dogma of the Catholic Church in light of the resurrection of the works of Greek philosophy, notably Aristotle, in the 13th C.
