The Eastern Churches and St. Thomas Aquinas

Look at Bl. Duns Scotus and William Ockham. Of course, why these later schoolmen went down this path is another question.

Lumping Blessed John in with Ockham is to make the same mistake that the Easterners do by conflating St. Thomas with John Calvin.  They are about that similar.  But yeah, Protestantism is the the result of a cancerous Scholasticism.  But as the old saying goes, abusus non tollit usum.
