Scholasticism is a method of learning taught by the academics of medieval universities from the 11th until the 15th century, originating in Paris. This method of learning was based on dialectical reasoning, with the purpose of answering a question or settling a disagreement through the use of the Scholastic method. The Scholastic method would compare two or more writings of a related source.

The sources would be read aloud to a class of pupils or academics to point of the contradictions between the texts. Then through a series of dialectics focusing on philological and or logical commonly Aristotelian logic after the Second Crusade circa analysis the two sides of the contradiction would be interoperated to essentially agree with each other.

Gothic Architecture is a style of architecture originating near Paris with the construction of the abbey church of Saint-Denis. The gothic style flourished during the High and Late Medieval periods. Classic features found in gothic architecture include thin columns and surrounding walls supported by flying buttresses, stained-glass, ribbed vaults, and detailed sculptural elements.

Gothic vaulting allowed for the pointed doorways, large windows and high ceilings creating a high heavenly environment worthy of being described as the house of God. The scholar commonly a cleric devoted his life to writing and teaching.

As well as being properly schooled in the Scholastic method. While the architect who frequently rose from an ordinary laborer to the overseer of an entire structure through hard work and diligence would become a well traveled, often well read man. The most famous summa was written by Thomas Aquinas titled Summa Theologiae. The High Gothic cathedral aimed to mirror the summa by representing the whole of Christian knowledge within the structural design.

In Sic et Non Abelard exposes disagreements between church authorities and the Scripture of the Bible. Through the use of Aristotelian logic applied to the Scholastic Method scholars processed each disagreement. The Scholastics had no problem following the orders of the authorities; rather they prided themselves on exploiting the authorities for their own gain then expressing their own thoughts. Panofsky closes his work by explaining the only piece of hard evidence connecting Scholastic thought with High Gothic Architecture, an inscription on a tablet of the ideal ground plan of a chevet.

Two High Gothic architects discussing a quaestio, and a third architect commenting on the dialogue with the strictly Scholastic term disputare instead of the more common term colloqui.

The result of this dispute is creation of the chevet the perfect Scholastic answer to the east end of the Gothic cathedral, using semi-circular chapels instead of classic square chapels creating a more efficient vaulting system with the use of one keystone per chapel. The concept of one school of though taking over the most educated city of the western world allowing the corruption of the Bible is an unsettling fact. Panofsky, Erwin.
