The struggle to delineate the relationship between theology and logic
flourished in the thirteenth century and culminated in two
condemnations in early 1277, one in Paris and the other in Oxford. To
see how much and what kind of affect ecclessiastical actions such as
condemnations and prohibitions to teach had on the development of
logic in the Middle Ages, we investigate the events leading up to the
1277 actions, the condemned propositions, and the parts of these
condemnations connected to modal and temporal logic specifically. We
show that because of the specific motivations late 13th-century and
14th-century logicians had when working in modal and temporal logic,
the effect of the 1277 condemnations on the development of those
branches was much smaller than might have been supposed.
