Raymond of Sabunde (born Ramon Sibiuda, c. 1385-1436), Catalan scholar, teacher of medicine and philosophy and finally regius professor of theology at Toulouse. He was born in Barcelona (at that time the major Catalan city of the Crown of Aragon), and died in Toulouse. The book was directed against the position then held by some, that reason and faith, philosophy and theology were antithetical and irreconcilable. Raymond declares that the Book of Nature and the Bible are both Divine revelations, the one general and immediate, the other specific and mediate. - Brunet V, 10: "belle édition"; Adams S39.
