Durandus of St Pourcain

This chapter deals with the second Dominican censure against Durandus in 1316/17, representing the ‘Thomist turn’ of the controversy. The chapter brings to light the chief features of fourteenth-century elaborations of Thomism, in its twofold connection to the notion of a ‘common opinion’ and the accepted interpretation of Aristotelian metaphysics. Unlike the first censure, Durandus will no longer be judged simply against the standards of Church orthodoxy, but also on the basis of his departure from Thomist teaching. Aquinas’s promotion as a theological authority is thus being opeated on this identification with Church doctrine as a criterion for orthodoxy.
