The History of Scottish Theology, Volume I

Mark W. Elliott

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the humanist supplement to scholastic theology, concerned more with devotional and ethical matters than the metaphysics of doctrine, yet the former would include a keen defence of the orthodox Eucharistic doctrine as well as conciliar theology which allowed for a political theology that was at once quasi-democratic while respecting order and office. Although a scholastic by method, John Mair shows this training to be used for questions of devotion and authority. Coming from very different backgrounds, Quintin Kennedy and Ninian Winzet offer defence of the Old Faith that is detailed and coherent. The civil ‘republicanism’ of Buchanan and Knox was the occasion of a Reforming Catholicism remaining true to the old faith in these key areas.

Keywords:   conciliarism, humanism, scholasticism, Catholic Reformation, political theology, Eucharist
