“Mary Beth Ingham, CSJ, is a gifted scholar and master teacher. An insightful and careful reader of the ‘Subtle Doctor,’ Ingham effectively and creatively communicates the practical significance of Scotus’ thought for today in scholarly, academic, and pastoral settings.” – Edward Coughlin, OFM, President, Siena College
“One of the foremost Scotus scholars in the world today, Mary Beth Ingham presents a refreshing and positive understanding of the human person, the nature of God and the value of creation. She weaves a rich tapestry of love, beauty and freedom with expert hands. Presenting the Franciscan worldview of mutuality and goodness, she will entice and enthrall those who hear her to desire and love the beautiful good.” –David B. Couturier, OFM. Cap., Ph.D., D.Min.

6 reviews for Duns Scotus: The Subtle Doctor

  1. Mary P. , IL

    Summer Survey: July 2017

    I had earlier heard of the “Always Plan A…never a Plan B”, idea of the Incarnation…but never had the opportunity to explore it. NOW was apparently God” time to gift me to do so. It is and continues to provide food for my soul, as well as my spiritual companions with whom I am sharing its treasures, well beyond my original expectations. The topic must be one of the best kept secrets of the Church, for all through my Catholic Education it has been largely kept from me as I now am nearing 70!

  2. Harold K., NE

    Summer Survey: July 2017

    It gave a detailed analysis of Franciscan theological thought which answer a lot of questions about Scotus’ theology.

    The lecture series on Dun Scotus was excellent. I wish there was a .pdf with it. I was so captivated by this series I bought the lecturer’s book. I learned how much the teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas is influenced by Dun Scotus. An intellectual delight.

    I loved the course but was disappointed that the study guide was not included.

  5. Joseph C., NY

    2018 Spring Survey

    The Subtle Doctor, Dun Scotus course was very helpful in helping me sought out the differences and similarities between the Franciscan and Thomas Aquinas- and also very helpful with the comparisons with the other Franciscan Henry of Ghent .
