“A great Scottish philosopher”
Review of Minoritenkirche

Minoritenkirche
Reviewed August 21, 2013

In this church there is the tomb of the Blessed Duns Scotus, a great early mediaeval philosopher, known in his time as the "subtle doctor". Not hard to find; it's about halfway along one of the long walls.

He taught at Oxford. There's a memorial plaque to him there in the University Church, on the High, near Carfax.

It is interesting to think how he might have made the journey. By boat up the Rhine, perhaps, like the relics of the Three Kings ?

The church is not far behind the cathedral. There is a pleasantly quiet, contemplative atmosphere inside. Few if any tourists.
