This essay explores the late Scholastic use of texts and authorities by comparing Suárez’s use of anatomical and medical texts in his De anima commentary with that of Hieronymus Dandinus. Two principles governing Suárez’s use are identified, the text’s newness and its acceptability to the Jesuit authorities. By using such texts as authorities, Suárez was able to introduce such ideas to the students without actually engaging in discussions about them in the classroom.

Keywords:   Francisco Suárez, Hieronymus Dandinus, De anima commentaries, authority, Jesuits
