From the 9th century onward, three hundred years before the start of the Latin controversy about the nature of universalia, we find in Byzantium a series of statements and inquiries devoted to the theory of the Platonic Ideas which are interesting both for the historical nature of their development and their individual contribution. In contrast to what would happen later among the Latins, with the opposing schools of the reales and the nominales, philosophers in the learned world of Byzantine culture were not so concerned with constructing doctrinal systems. None the less, when one reads their intelligent, critical works of philosophical exegesis, it is evident they had acquired their own philosophical principles. Well before the political catastrophe of the Fourth Crusade, emminent Byzantine scholars, such as Photius (820-891), Arethas (850-944), Michael Psellus (1018-1078) and John Italos (1025-1082), in their study of the texts of ancient Greek and Patristic philosophy, were commenting on the complete Platonic, Aristotelian and Neoplatonic corpora, in such an erudite way that in comparison their contemporary Latin colleagues, given their ignorance of the original texts and lack of first-hand training, have to be seen as dilettanti.
