Abstract :
Theology as generated in the Chapter Schools and the Universities was characterized by the increasing use of grammar and logic. As a reaction, the monastic world, which sought to place more emphasis on the expression of personal experience and emotion, came to develop a theology all of its own. This process was to continue far into the 13th century. Scholastics, during the period of their formation in the monastery, came to be acquainted with this form of monastic theology. The attempts by the Austin Friar Giles of Rome (d. 1316), to integrate both scholastic reasoning and monastic inspiration within his own theology, appear then all the more surprising.
