Product Details

This DVD can only be sold in the US and Canada 

The inspiring true story of the holy Franciscan priest and theologian who won a famous debate against the Dominicans in the 13th century in which he defended Our Lady's great privilege of her Immaculate Conception, laying the groundwork for the Church to later define that as a dogma of the Catholic faith. Filmed in beautiful ancient monastery locations in Europe, Scotus is revealed as a humble and courageous apostle of the Faith against the oppressive anti-Catholic government in power. His public defense of the papacy as the head of the Church eventually got him thrown out of the country.

An important film for Americans since the Immaculate Conception is the Patroness of the USA, this acclaimed feature film stars Italian actor Adriano Braidotti in an award-winning performance as Blessed John Duns Scotus, who was Beatified by John Paul II. The movie won major awards for Best Movie and Best Actor at the 2011 International Catholic Film Festival.

This DVD contains the following language options: Italian with English and Spanish subtitles

Comprehensive Theology
While Scotus is most revered for the Immaculate Conception Dogma debate the movie builds to as a climax, I found many profound core Catholic  teachings from the beginning and throughout. You will have to tolerate the 14th century castle lighting, but the dialogue is a gem ... start to end.  His "Primacy of the Will" should be a starting point for all looking to understand the Divine Nature within. He covers the Eucharist, vocations, scholastics, prayer and most important for modern times ... the nature of Absolute Freedom.  Catholic or just honest seeker, this is a must have reference to own and to watch repeatedly.  He always applies the greatest possible justice and charity to God in every eternal act and effect. This is The First Principal for every line of reasoning. This is how ordered use of the mind is intended.
