immaculate conception
by Erasmus

The doctrine of Mary's immaculate conception had been accepted by the Paris theology faculty only in 1497. Scotus had argued against Aquinas that it did not compromise the unique mediation of Christ, but his treatment of the question made the immaculate conception into a Marian privilege not clearly relevant to religious experiences, although it is of fundamental importance for an understanding of the effects of the redemption.
