Recognizing that we are far removed from the mind of Master Thomas, when a point of contention arises regarding his meaning, one must first and foremost seek its resolution in the consensus of the philosophers of the continuous line of Scholastic Thomists who are recognized as faithfully and intentionally adhering to Thomasís doctrine. This line includes, but is not limited to, Herve de Nedellec, Thomas Sutton, Durandus of Aurillac, John Capreolus, Cajetan, Conrad Kollin, Sylvester de Ferraris, Francis of Vittoria, Dominic Soto, Melchior Cano, Peter de Soto, Dominic Banez, John of St. Thomas, the Salmanticenses, Vincent Gotti, Salvatore Roselli, Sanseverino, Charles Rene Billuart, Benedetto Lorenzelli, Edouard Hugon, Thomas Zigliara, H.D. Gardeil, Norbertus del Prado, Santiago Ramirez, and Garrigou-Lagrange. This line excludes those who explicitly or implicitly reject the principles, methods, or conclusions of the Scholastic Thomistic tradition and its continuous and organic development.
