Serious theological thinking still tended to be monastic, but cathedral schools were increasingly applying methods derived from logic to theology: an approach in which Abelard was famous. Some of these thinkers were notable for the value, which they ascribed to human relationships, in particular, to ‘friendship’. Such concerns lay behind the growing devotion to the crucified humanity of Christ and the doctrine of purgatory.
