Example text

48 We shall proceed by making some general observations on the formal structure of those texts from the body of Albert’s writings that are classified as belonging to the field of systematic theology. Regarding Albert’s biblical-theological works, the subject of another contribution to this volume, suffice it to say that they comprise an objectively, formally, and methodologically uniform complex within the literary form of the so-called postil commentary on Holy Scripture, with exception of 44 See Louis J.

Scient. Dei, 1, Albert expands the views expressed on method in his Sentences commentary, going into greater and more nuanced detail regarding the discussion of the following four aspects: (1) Does theology possess the method of a science (modus scientiae) or the method of an art (modus artis)? (2) Is the method of theology more reliable than the methods of other sciences? (3) Does it possess the method of argumentation? (4) The four methods of interpreting Holy Scripture. In this context, Albert points out, among other issues, the limits of applying a scientific method or one suitable to an art to theology (Modus atem scientialis et artficialis non omnibus competit), a problem he avoided in the Sentences commentary by availing himself of the term “doctrine” (doctrina) instead of science (scientia).
