This paper describes the evolution of philosophy in Western Europe and some of the major philosophers of that time, including Saint Augustine, Boethius and John Scottus Eriugena. The paper includes biographical information on each of these philosophers and a look at how and why they were each connected to the church.

From the Paper:

"Common thought holds that this is the case because Augustine was writing in the last days of the ancient civilizations. Many of these same academicians would also say that for the next 500 years or so there wouldn't be a lot in the way of "higher" intellectual endeavor. It can be shown that although one must of necessity had to be both aristocratic, or at least of more than merely adequate means, and ordained, philosophy certainly was not dead, and indeed was pursued with great vigor and sometimes great acrimony and at no little personal danger, depending on whether or not the church liked the ideas being put forth."
