Dante designed his epic-450- in accordance with the fixed outlines of thomistic theology.
Theologically, the thomistic system approximates to pantheism, while that of Scotus inclines distinctly to Pelagianism.
St. Alphonsus Liguori was a follower of the thomistic opinion.
In the later middle ages free thought, combating the thomistic system, inclined to Averroism.
There are, however, a few moralists at the present day who incline to the old thomistic doctrine or to modifications of it.
