Pp. –. henry of ghent and the events of   present pages seem worth writing if they were to paint again the portrait of a Henry of Ghent champion of the Parisian orthodoxy as expressed in the bishop’s decree of  March . A useful task can still be achieved, however. On the basis of five well selected cases it can be shown that Henry of Ghent’s later teaching related to the condemnations and censures of March  is characteristically nuanced. Without pretending to cover, by these five analyses, all Henry has to say in every respect about the events of March , these five test cases are not without consequences for the understanding of Henry’s overall thought regarding these events.

Qq.  and . 76 See for example, Henry of Ghent, Quaestiones ordinariae (Summa), art. I–V, ed. G. Wilson, pp. –, where one finds Henry dealing with the possibility and limits of human knowledge throughout the first five articles of the Summa. For secondary literature relating to human knowledge, see the article below by Steven Marrone and the article below by Bernd Goehring. 77 See for example Henry of Ghent, Quaestiones ordinariae (Summa), art. , q. , ed. R. Macken, pp. ,–,.

The phraseology of at least twelve of Giles’s involved positions can be traced back in the very formulas used by Henry for stating the opposite theses. One article in particular of Giles’s censure can very well be the result of a personal, rather than theological or philosophical, conflict between Henry and Giles. On the other hand, regarding the location of a spiritual substance (art. ) and the simultaneity of reason and will (art.  and ), Henry of Ghent, as all the other masters, agreed with Giles and disagreed with Stephen Tempier.
