The distinction entails that altho intellectual assent is a necessary condition of faith, the consent of the will, issuing in moral activity, is required for faiths completion. Thru her analysis of Aquinas distinction, Barad maintains not only that the traditional characterization of Aquinas as an intellectualist in matters of faith is false, but that Aquinas can shed light on the difference between religious hypocrisy & devotion.
