Abstract

The heyday of metaphysical theology, so far as Europe is concerned, was in the thirteenth century. Immediately afterwards came a change. A keener sense of logical rigour undermined the great scholastic structures, and fifty or a hundred years later strong voices were proclaiming that propositions about God and the soul are matters not of knowledge, but of faith. This did not mean that people had lost their confidence in theism or in Christianity. Faith, though it was not knowledge, was a perfectly respectable and reliable state of mind. This view of the matter became accepted and was later a component in the doctrines of the Reformation.
