In contrast to other articles in this series on the history of moral philosophy the present essay is not devoted to expounding the views of a single author, or to examining a particular moral theory. Instead it discusses an important dispute between two medieval accounts of the relation between theological and moral propositions. In addition to its historical interest this debate is important both because it connects earlier and later ethical thought – being influenced by Greek moral theories and influencing subsequent European philosophy – and because it concerns issues that remain important to philosophers and to those who claim that their ethical beliefs are dictated by religious convictions.
