Approaches to conversion in the late 13th-century church

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article deals with two different approaches to conversion prevalent in the thirteenth century. One, promulgated by the mendicants, proposed the use of reason in order to discredit the religion of the unbeliever, and demanded belief in the truth of the Christian articles of faith. The other, adopted by Ramon Llull insisted on the necessity of not only disproving the faith of the other by the use of reason, but also of putting the Christian articles of faith to the same test of reason.
