I decided to publish this Blog, "The Scholasticum", to be an electronic forum for the discussion of Scholastic Theology and Philosophy for those who visit The Franciscan Archive, and for all others on the Internet. This site is part of the long term plans I have to study Scholasticism: a work which focuses on translating some of the great works of Scholastic Theology of the Franciscan School into English. If you visit my web page, you can read online part of Peter Lombard's Book of Sentences and Bonaventure's corresponding Commentaries, in English and Latin, as well as part 1 and 2 of Scotus' prologue to his Ordinatio, as well as find a host of links to their other works, some of which I have also published (e.g. Itinerarium, Collations on the 7 Gifts of the Holy Ghost). As I am a franciscan brother I am begging the means to do this, bit by bit over the years. I wish to thank my benefactors for all their assistance, and invite others of you who may be interested in helping if you can. If you would like to contact me, go to my web page, and send me an email directly.
It looks like the blog is only about two weeks old, but he already has several interesting selections from major scholastic texts, a post on the place of scholastic theology in the mind of the Catholic Church, a post that provides an introductory overview to the (early) history of scholasticism (I say 'early' because it only goes to the 14th century), the relation of Ratzinger's theology to scholasticism, and close textual commentaries on Aquinas's ST 1.1.1 and Scotus's Ordinatio Prol.1.1.
