  Another obstacle to the thirteenth century pilgrimage to God was, Dr. Rao indicates, intellectual disunity, something that the university "think tanks" were supposed to overcome. Supporters and opponents of Aristotle battled one another ferociously. Differing interpretations of Aristotle clashed. Many thinkers--the people whom we call Nominalists--seemed to wish to reject philosophical discussions entirely and base our knowledge of Truth on an uninvestigated Faith alone. Some wanted to talk about God only on the basis of what we found pointing us to Him in nature alone. Others said that wisdom regarding the divine had to come from mystical union and feeling. Dr. Rao examines all of these approaches and illustrates the bitterness and sins against charity they could arouse.
