[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]
In the theological field there must be a balance between what we may call the architectural principles given to us by revelation—which, therefore, always retain their priority importance—and the principles for interpretation suggested by philosophy, that is, by reason—which have an important but exclusively practical role. When this balance between the architecture and the instruments for interpretation is lacking, theological reflection risks being distorted by errors.
