Otherwise, apart from mild age toning to the paper, in good to very good condition. ~Y~ A brief biography of Duns Scotus and the author's extrapolations about a portrait of Scotus then in the possession of the General Theological Seminary (an Episcopal institution in New York) by Jose de Ribera (1591-1652), a Spanish Tenebrist painter and printmaker, also called Lo Spagnoletto ('the Little Spaniard') by his contemporaries and early writers. John Duns, commonly called Scotus or Duns Scotus (circa 1266-1308), is generally considered to be one of the three most important philosopher-theologians of the High Middle Ages. Scotus has had considerable influence on both Catholic and secular thought. The doctrines for which he is best known are the 'univocity of being,' that existence is the most abstract concept we have, applicable to everything that exists; the formal distinction, a way of distinguishing between different aspects of the same thing; and the idea of haecceity, the property supposed to be in each individual thing that makes it an individual. Scotus also developed a complex argument for the existence of God, and argued for the Immaculate Conception of Mary. Duns Scotus was given the medieval accolade Doctor Subtilis (Subtle Doctor) for his penetrating and subtle manner of thought. He was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1993.
