REVIEW OF MEDIEVAL AND RENAISSANCE CHRONOLOGY
One method to determine how well you understand the evolution of ideas is to unscramble the following primary source quotes. By arranging them in proper order from Medieval to Renaissance times, you can determine how key ideas in nominalism and realism evolved...
_______Whoever examines the ideas which that religion Christianity is founded and sees how widely different from those ideas its present practices and applications are, will judge that his ruin or chastisement is near at hand.
_______Knowledge puffs up, but charity edifies.
_______There is a certain justification for my way of life. It may only be glory that we seek here, but I persuade myself that so long as we remain here, that is right...So this is the natural order, that among mortals the care of things mortal should come first; after the transitory will come the eternal. From the first to the second, is the natural progression.
_______He who leaves his home in such of knowledge walks into the path of God.
_______Constant and frequent questioning is the first key to wisdom. For through doubt, we inquire and by that we learn the truth.
_______The first and most important part of education is that the youthful mind may receive the seeds of piety; next that it may love and thoroughly learn the liberal studies; thirdly that it may be prepared for the duties of life.
_______The Christian ought to advance knowledge through faith: not come to faith through knowledge.
