“O Lord our God, true teacher that you are . . . You are truly what it means to be, you are the whole of what it means to exist.”

– Blessed John Duns Scotus, A Treatise on God as First Principle

Explore the remarkable vision of Duns Scotus with a leading expert on his life and thought.

Blessed John Duns Scotus, O.F.M., (1265–1308) lived at the height of medieval scholasticism and became one of its premier luminaries. Commended as the Doctor Subtilis (“the Subtle Doctor”) for his nuanced yet keen insights, he is rightfully regarded as one of the greatest philosopher-theologians. He influenced a wide range of writers and philosophers, from Hopkins to Heidegger, and his thought remains as important as ever.

Now, you can join Sr. Mary Beth Ingham, C.S.J., on a fascinating overview of his philosophy and theology. In 12 audio lectures, you will look at Scotus’s medieval context and position as a successor of Augustine and Aquinas. As you explore the legacy of this Franciscan master, you will find inspiration in his optimism, ongoing conversion, and emphasis on practical action.

Throughout these lectures, Scotus’s commitment to Franciscan values and intuitions shines through. In the third millennium of the Church, he provides us with a renewed and vibrant vision of our Christian vocation.

Let this vibrant vision inspire you today.

2017 Christmas Survey
The lecture series on Dun Scotus was excellent. I wish there was a .pdf with it. I was so captivated by this series I bought the lecturer's book. I learned how much the teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas is influenced by Dun Scotus. An intellectual delight. Review by Tim Gannon Chico CA USA (Posted on 12/15/2017)

It gave a detailed analysis of Franciscan theological thought which answer a lot of questions about Scotus' theology. Review by Harold King, Hastings, NE, USA (Posted on 7/12/2017)
Summer Survey: July 2017
I had earlier heard of the "Always Plan A...never a Plan B", idea of the Incarnation...but never had the opportunity to explore it. NOW was apparently God" time to gift me to do so. It is and continues to provide food for my soul, as well as my spiritual companions with whom I am sharing its treasures, well beyond my original expectations. The topic must be one of the best kept secrets of the Church, for all through my Catholic Education it has been largely kept from me as I now am nearing 70! Review by Mary P. New Lenox, IL USA (Posted on 7/11/2017)
