The Song of Solomon also is sometimes given importance as a philosophical meditation on the meaning of beauty and love.

Religious orders tend to keep good records, including the writings of their members, so that historians of medieval philosophy typically have more material to work with for authors in the various orders than they do for “secular” figures like Buridan. Besides, other things being equal, orders understandably prefer to “champion their own” in academic as in other matters, and when the academic champion comes relatively early in the history of his order, he can come to be regarded as representing the order's authentic “position,” thereby influencing the views of later members of the order.[ 26 ] In this way, Aquinas soon became the semi-“official” philosopher and theologian of the Dominicans, a status that was enhanced in 1879 in Pope Leo XIII's encyclical Aeterni Patris, which called Aquinas “the chief and master of all the scholastic doctors,” and urged that preference be given to Thomistic doctrine in Catholic schools (see Saint Thomas Aquinas ) Psellos and the Patriarchs: Letters and Funeral Orations for Keroullarios, Leichoudes, and Xiphilinos (ND Michael Psellos in Translation).

Next, human law is a derivation of natural law that extends to particular cases, such as �people should not write bad checks.� Finally, divine law, as contained in the Bible, is a specially revealed subset of the eternal law that is meant to safeguard against possible errors in our attempts to both obtain natural law through reflection, and derive more particular human laws Eriugena: East and West (Notre Dame Conferences in Medieval Studies).
