When interest in his theology revived in the 15th century, the Thomist school of thought was well established; so it is no surprise that Bonaventure's thought was set up in opposition to Aquinas's, as well as to the nominalist, Albertist, and Scotist schools that filled the universities and studia of the later Middle Ages.
but this is less difficult in Albertist epistemology, in which the active intellect's light is dependent upon a higher light (see Owens, 448).
The formation from Cologne university a spokesman for via antqua at the beginning of the 15th century is surely connected to this pre-history and, in more concrete terms, to the arrival in Cologne at that time of some Albertists from Paris, of whom Heymeric de Campo (van de Velde), coming in 1422, was the most outstanding.
