    Bonaventure wrote the Brevilouium in 1257 the same year that he was elected Minister General of the rather tumultuous Franciscan order In that light it's maybe most helpful to see this work as a sort of textbook designed for young friars who were entering the order and the university without a large background of theological training It's a surprisingly readable introduction to medieval theology and it's based upon a deductive method of inuiry Bonaventure starts with assumptions of the faith and derives conclusions from there rather than the traditionally scholastic method of induction Bonaventure's theology broadly speaking it structured around an 'exitus redditus' formula which is Latin way of saying that his theology is conceptualized around the idea of Creation processing outwards from God and even after the introduction of original sin Creation then striving back towards God His seven sections focus on God particularly God as Trinity Creation Original Sin Christ Grace and the Last Judgment He's a lot like Anselm in much of his thought with a healthy dose of Peter Lombard tossed in Along with Auinas Bonaventure is one of the Big Medieval Theologians and is certainly worth a read I think on the whole I like his The Journey of the Mind to God a bit better though
