Llull — or Lullius (the Latin form of his name) — was a contemporary of Thomas Aquinas. Like Aquinas, he was a theologian in what James Walsh, one of the Roman Church's eulogists, has termed the “greatest of centuries,” since it was then that the church's enduring systematic theological formulations were developed.
