Summary

This chapter treats the response of John of La Rochelle’s Summa de anima and the Summa Halensis to three major questions on the relationship between the body and the soul that were debated amongst early scholastic theologians who engaged with Greek and Arabic philosophical sources. These questions concern whether it is composed of matter and form; the union of the soul to the body; and whether there is a medium between the soul and the body. The chapter situates early Franciscan ideas about these issues in the context of those advocated by other major scholastic theologians at the time.
