Though the concept of natural law took center stage during the Middle Ages, the theological aspects of this august intellectual tradition have been largely forgotten by the modern church. In this book ethicist Jean Porter shows the continuing significance of the natural law tradition for Christian ethics. Based on a careful analysis of natural law as it emerged in the medieval period, Porter's work explores several important scholastic theologians and canonists whose writings are not only worthy of study in their own right but also make important contributions to moral reflection today.

-Publisher

In this volume respected theologian and ethicist Jean Porter examines the concept of natural law as it emerged in the medieval period and demonstrates its continuing significance as a resource for contemporary Christian ethics.^Porter begins by canvassing the richness and diversity of the scholastic writings against the backdrop of medieval social and intellectual thought. Her study marshals a convincing argument that contrary to common misconceptions and caricatures of the medieval period, the scholastic theologians and canonists developed richly complex and nuanced understandings of the meaning of natural law.^In the main body of the book Porter looks closely at many of these largely neglected scholastic authors and shows why they should be taken seriously as moral thinkers whose texts are not only worthy of study in their own right but also make important contributions to moral reflection today.^Valuable for its practical applications as well as for its recovery of a major Christian tradition that has long been neglected, Natural and Divine Law will contribute to discussions in courses on a wide range of subjects, including theology, ethics, and intellectual history.
