Wisdom, Law, and Virtue

Lawrence Dewan

Fordham University Press

Jean Porter's book Natural and Divine Law aims at making theologians aware of medieval Scholastic theological discussions of natural law. The sources she consults include both theologians and canonists, extending over a period including the 12th and much of the 13th century. She sees such discussions as a possible fruitful source for contemporary Christian ethics. This chapter explores Porter's book, expressing a few impressions from the point of view of a student of St. Thomas and of someone having concerns appropriate for present-day Christian moral philosophers.

Keywords:   Jane Porter, Natural and Divine Law, natural law, Christian ethics
