Th e present article examines how this school’s identity was manifested in discussions on the soul and its powers, engaged in by three Erfurtian philosophers: Johannes Carniﬁ cis de Lutrea, Jodocus Trutfetter and Bartholomaeus Arnoldi de Usingen. In the various forms of their expositions these authors reveal a rather uniform stance concerning doctrinal issues. Th eir positions are largely based on the tradition of the via moderna going back to the early ﬁ fteenth century, and their argumentation is deeply bound to the problems arising from this school’s position. Comparisons with concurrent Th omist and Scotist sources show that the Erfurtians describe the positions of other schools in an appropriate manner, although the arguments for and against these positions are often borrowed from the authorities of their own school rather than from contemporaneous discussion.
