Thomas Aquinas puts his thoughts in a multiple context. So the concept of democracy, after appearing very early, is clearly declining in the Middle Ages

Thomas Aquinas puts his thoughts in a multiple context. He knows all the works of Greek and will try all his life to reconcile the achievements of Greek philosophy (especially Aristotle) and Divine Revelation. Thomas Aquinas takes Aristotle‘s idea that communities are natural, that is to say, fulfill a need, that of mutual protection. So the concept of democracy, after appearing very early, is clearly declining in the Middle Ages. Political thinkers of the post revelation of God are the source of legitimacy and power and purpose: political communities that exist by and for God.

Thomas Aquinas and John Duns Scotus are arguably the most celebrated representatives of the 'Golden Age' of scholasticism. Primarily, they are known for their work in natural theology, which seeks to demonstrate tenets of faith without recourse to premises rooted in dogma or revelation.

Scholars of this Golden Age drew on a wealth of tradition, dating back to Plato and Aristotle, and taking in the Arabic and Jewish interpretations of these thinkers, to produce a wide variety of answers to the question 'How much can we learn of God?' Some responded by denying us any positive knowledge of God. Others believed that we have such knowledge, yet debated whether its acquisition requires some action on the part of God in the form of an illumination bestowed on the knower. Scotus and Aquinas belong to the more empirically minded thinkers in this latter group, arguing against a necessary role for illumination. Many scholars believe that Aquinas and Scotus exhaust the spectrum of answers available to this circle, with Aquinas maintaining that our knowledge is quite confused and Scotus that it is completely accurate. In this study, Alexander Hall argues that the truth about Aquinas and Scotus lies somewhere in the middle.
