  1. Jos Decorte (2002). Relatio as Modus Essendi : The Origins of Henry of Ghent's Definition of Relation. International Journal of Philosophical Studies 10 (3):309 – 336.
    The context in which medieval theologians discuss 'relation' is nearly always a trinitarian one. They have to solve an awkward problem: to explain how in God the persons are identical with the divine essence, yet different among themselves. In this paper I want to argue that Henry of Ghent's interest in the nature of the Trinity acted as an impetus towards the development of his theory of the nature of relations. In this context the accounts of Thomas Aquinas and Giles (...)

  2. Jos Decorte (2001). Henri de Gand et la définition classique de la vérité. Recherches de Theologie Et Philosophie Medievales 68 (1):34-74.
    Dans sa Somme, art. 34, Henri de Gand se penche sur les questions se rapportant à la vérité en Dieu . Il n’y a pas tant d’auteurs qui se sont donné la peine d’étudier ce problème à fond, nous fait-il remarquer1 — bien à tort, d’après lui.

    In this contribution the. author defends the thesis that the rise of mystical movements replacing the traditional religions is a dubious phenomenon. Many people seem to think that the revival of mystical movements is an apt answer to the religious crisis we are living in. Even when they are not interested in commercial success but solely in going back to the historical roots of mysticism, those movements often fail to realize that traditional mysticism is deeply embedded in a religious tradition, (...)

    This modest contribution has been occasioned by the publication of the Proceedings of an international colloquium held at the De Wulf-Mansion Centre of the Institute of Philosophy in commemoration of the seven-hundredth anniversary of the death of Henry of Ghent. This colloquium had a twofold purpose: «first to establish a status quaestionis of the different fields of research concerning Henry’s doctrines and the critical edition of his work and, second, to provide a forum for specialists to exchange ideas and insights (...)

  5. Jos Decorte (1996). Giles of Rome and Henry of Ghent on the Reality of a Real Relation. Documenti E Studi Sulla Tradizione Filosofica Medievale 7:183-211.
    L'attenzione dell'A. si concentra sull'opposta concezione della distinzione tra essenza ed esistenza che per Egidio è reale, mentre per Enrico è solo intenzionale. In modo analogo, i due autori dissentono rispetto al tipo di realtà da ascrivere alle relazioni divine. Dopo avere dedicato un breve paragrafo al contesto dottrinale trinitario, l'A. passa ad esaminare in modo sistematico il pensiero dei due autori.
