He sought “real scientific knowledge”—a knowledge not of words and subtle distinctions, but of “things” (Gilson, 1957, 279). In a sense, Albert may be called a predecessor of the kind of phenomenological methodology that is so necessary as a stage in the process of understanding another culture and faith.
We shall enter into that movement in the following chapter, but there is yet one more historical survey to record—that of the dynamics that synthesized or syncretized the Graeco-Roman/Germanic fusion that occurred between the fifth and the thirteenth centuries. Such a survey will deepen our understanding of the syncretic process that shows the Metaxy in both its tensions and its creativity.
