This is Vol. 2, Part II, of Copleston's well-known history of philosophy. "[T]he author describes the gradual absorption of Greek philosophy by Christian theology. This process, begun with the Platonic leanings of the Apologetic Fathers, is shown to have received a great impulse in the imposing systems of the thirteenth centur, particularly in the comprehensive synthesis of Aquinas." Includes discussions of Justin Martyr, Clement, Origen, Boetius, Isidore, John Scotus Eriguena, Anselm, Averroes, Grosseteste, and Albert the Great.
