Understanding the theology of Saint Bonaventure (d. 1274) is much like identifying the horses on a supersonic carousel; the only way to see clearly is to get to the center and spin in place. The farther one moves to the edge (that is, to the individual pieces of Bonaventure's thought), the faster (and more treacherous) the journey. To avoid the centrifugal pull of particular concepts, it is best to start with the shared, synchronic elements of his theology and admit that most of his writing is not linear (even when it appears as such).... [This is a chapter excerpted from "Medieval Renaissance Baroque: A Cat's Cradle for Marilyn Aronberg Lavin," edited by David A. Levine and Jack Freiberg (Italica Press, New York, 2010).]
