(p.160) Chapter 9 University Theologians on Pagan Virtue and Salvation
Pagans and Philosophers

John Marenbon

Princeton University Press

This chapter explores the different trajectories taken by discussions among (mainly) university theologians of pagan virtue, before turning to the topic of salvation in the rest of the chapter. After the discussions on pagan virtue, the chapter turns to the theories devised in the period up to William of Ockham in the early fourteenth century. It then focuses on discussions about the salvation of particular pagans (such as Aristotle himself), before finally moving on to the theoretical developments which took place in the mid- and later fourteenth century and set the stage for the debates which would go on to 1700 and even later.

Keywords:   university theologians, pagan virtue, salvation, theoretical developments, pagan knowledge
