From Wikipedia on Bonaventure (1221 - 1274), a Franciscan;, Thomas Aquinas (1225 - 1274), Dominican; and Roger Bacon (1214 - ?) Franciscan: Wikipedia: In philosophy Bonaventure presents a marked contrast to his contemporaries, Roger Bacon and Thomas Aquinas. While these may be taken as representing, respectively, physical science yet in its infancy, and Aristotelian https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aristotle scholasticism in its most perfect form, he presents the mystical and Platonizing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plato mode of speculation that had already, to some extent, found expression in Hugo https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugh_of_St_Victor and Richard of St. Victor https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_of_St._Victor, and in Bernard of Clairvaux https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_of_Clairvaux. To him, the purely intellectual element, though never absent, is of inferior interest when compared with the living power of the affections or the heart,"
Thus, in this century we have the incipient separation between 1. Mysticism (Bonaventure), 2. Bacon (empiricism), and 3. Aquinas (Aristotelian scholasticism. Although in the case of Aquinas, we have an individual who basically had a two-part history: the first, that of an amazing intellectual genius,; and second, an equally amazing mystic, devotee of Jesus, and a levitator. ... The above 3 threads of evolution can be extended to the time of Luther, who introduced a distinct fourth trend since he was not a. highly intellectual, b. not an empiricist, and c. definitely not a mystic. (Salvation by Faith alone, not of works). The mystical element by the time of George Fox can be further bifurcated into pure Transcendentalism (Fox, imo); vs contemplative mysticism (various Catholic Saints). Due to repression by the Catholic Church and the grip of religious dogma, the latter trend has more or less fizzled out, with Padre Pio (died 1968) possibly the last of the dualistic Catholic mystics). But the work of Fox remains in countless multitudes of "Spiritual but not religious", either operating and evolving independently, or coalescing around Gurus like MMY, Ammachi, Eckhart Tolle. Among the many Gurus on the scend, those in turn can be classified as pure Transcendentalists (e.g. Tolle, Ramana Maharshi), who on some level can be labeled Shaivites, vs the Shakta school exemplified by Ammachi. Guru Dev was more in the Shakta or Divine Mother School.
