THE MIDDLE AGES
  • During the decline of Greco-Roman civilization,
    Western philosophers turned their attention from
    the scientific investigation of nature and the
    search for worldly happiness to the problem of
    salvation in another and better world. By the 3rd
    century ad, Christianity had spread to the more
    educated classes of the Roman Empire. The
    religious teachings of the Gospels were combined
    by the Fathers of the Church with many of the
    philosophical concepts of the Greek and Roman
    schools.

THE MAIN CHARACTERISTICS
  • THEOCENTRISM - any philosophical problem is
    studied in the context of God.
  • THEODICY (God and justice)- the study which
    explains the contradiction of the idea of God as
    Absolute and the existence of the world evil.
  • THEOLOGISM
