JOHN the SCOT
c.805 - c.877
Irish Philosopher




John the Scot, or Scotus, spent much of his time under the patronage of Charles the Bald, king of France.

In his work 'On Divine Predestination' he contended that reason and revelation are both sources of truth but if they conflict, reason is to be preferred.

This work was condemned by two councils, and his other work 'On the Division of Nature' was declared heretical since his pantheism was deemed contrary to Christian doctrine.
