QuotationI have been reading Duns Scotus's Oxoniense III, distinction 18, on Christ's will and His love. Scotus is really simple once you get through the barricade of distinctions that are so hard to understand. His underlying thought is beautiful, coherent, and he is always working for simplicity, elimination of non-essentials.
