Has anyone of you experience with St. Bonaventuras writings?

Is that the same as Bonaventure, the Franciscan? I've read The Journey of the Mind to God in English and Latin, and some of his other works that I don't remember all that well. I once wrote a paper "Why angels are necessary for Human Knowledge for Bonaventure."

Hi Bluegoat, thanks for your answer. I had one arm in a splint after a little accident- therefore I didn´t do any typewriting for a while. What is your experience with Bonaventuras writings and are they in the net in English? The article you wrote- can you post it here?
Thanks, Lioba

Oh, I hope your arm is feeling better.

I'm afraid that I don't have a clue what happened to that essay, I wish I did. I can't even remember what mark I got on it now.

I love Bonaventure, I found him really enjoyable to read, and his Latin is quite comprehensible. I would say he is a typical Franciscan, in that his theology really sees Love as the central way to be united to God, even when engaged in an intellectual exercise of contemplation of the Divine. I think it would also be fair to say that he is much more Augustinian, as compared to St Thomas.
