Scholasticism, in a literal sense., was and is a synthesis. It draw together the principles and doctrines which had been enunciated by philosophers, jurists, and theologians of early ages and, with critical acumen, selected the elements which it considered to be true and framed these into a comprehensive system. Thus it united in itself the best elements or the learned pagan thinkers, the precepts of the Roman law and the teachings of the Fathers of the Church. W1th great breadth or view the Scholastics, notably St. Thomas, brought Plato and Aristotle, St. Augustine and st. John Damascene, Isadore of Seville and Gratian, to the service of Catholic truth and the perfecting of social relations.
