Unde nota quod in eadem veritate assentiens aliquis alicui secundum quod catholico doctori, meretur; assentiens ut haeretico, demerertur; assentiens ut philosopho, nec meretur nec demeretur. Unde esto quod sicut Moyses dixit: In principio creavit Deus caelum et terram, ita etiam diceret Aristoteles, ita etiam Arius; qui crederet quod Moyses dicit, mereretur, quia crederet quod Spiritu Sancto fuerit afflatus, et ita crederet primae Veritati. Qui crederet quod Aristoteles dicit, nec mereretur nec demereretur, quia adhaereret sapientiae mundanae. Qui crederet quod Arius dicit, putans Arium, qui fuit haereticus, esse doctorem verum, demereretur, quia assensus est fundatus super haeresim.
--St Bonaventure, In IV Sententiarum XXX, Dub. II, resp.
"We should note that someone assenting to someone's authority about one and the same truth insofar as he is a Catholic doctor, merits; but someone assenting to someone about the same truth insofar as he is a heretic, is blameworthy; and someone assenting to someone as a philosopher, neither merits nor is blamed. So let's say that, just as Moses said: In the beginning God created the heaven and the hearth, Aristotle said the same thing, and also Arius. He who believes what Moses says, merits, because he believes it because Moses was inspired by the Holy Spirit, and so he believes in the first Truth. He who believes what Aristotle said, neither merits nor is blamed, because he adheres to worldly wisdom. He who believes what Arius said, believing that Arius, who was a heretic, is a true doctor, is blamed, because his assent is founded on heresy."
