(April 28, 2013)

This session discussed medieval Christianity, the scholastic movement, and medieval scholars’ attempts to reconcile the Classical past with the Christian present, including Peter Abelard’s assertion that “by doubting we come to investigate, and by investigating we recognize the truth.” Participants were asked to discuss how doubt and rational inquiry relate to faith and belief.
