Article Summary

Roger Marston, an English Franciscan philosopher–theologian, was a pupil of John Pecham and a fellow student with Matthew of Aquasparta. Following closely in the footsteps of his master, Marston championed the views of Augustine in a conscious effort to counteract the growing fascination with Averroistic Aristotelianism. Of his works, three sets of Quaestiones disputatae (Disputed Questions) and four sets of quodlibetal questions, the Quodlibeta Quatuor (Four Quodlibets), survive.
