Christ: to Be Followed Above All

In a letter of Abelard to Eloisa, the following paragraph occurs:–'I will be no philosopher, if so be I must needs fight against St. Paul; I will be no Aristotle, if so be I be separated from Christ.' If all students were thus resolved to hold with the great Teacher at all hazards, we should not see such frequent victims of 'philosophy, falsely so called.' Unlettered ignorance is a great evil, but learned ignorance is worse, and such is all learning which decoys the heart from Jesus.
