tion of new information and inventions
unknown to the Greeks, or indeed, to
cny previous civilization. The main pre-
suppositions of this third period of the
later Middle Ages go back, however,
to the Roman Empire. They had been
formulated by the Church Fathers,
transmitted through the Dark Ages,
and were now elaborated by the po-
fessors in the newly established uni-
sersiti's under the influence of Aris-
totle's recovered works and built up
into a majestic intellectual structure
known as Scholasticism. *
Our civilization and the human
mind, critical end uncritical, as we
find it in our western world, is a
direct and uninterrupted outgrowth
of the civilization and thought of the
later Middle Ages. Very gradually
only did peculiarly free and auda-
cious individual thinkers escape from
this or that medieval belief, until
in our own day some few have come
to reject practically all the presuppo-
sitions on which the Scholastic sys-
tem was reared. But the great mass
of Christian believers, whether Cath-
olic or Protestant, still professedly
or implicity adhere to the assumptions
of the Middle Ages, at least in all mat-
ters in which religious or moral sanc-
tions are concerned. * *
