This study demonstrates that While philosophy did function as the servant of philosophy, it was still able to move independently, bestowing rational values upon theologists. Philosophy was however forced into serving theology in order to be integrated into the process of human knowledge accumulation that fell into the hands of monks following the collapse of the Roman Empire. Did Philosophy really, like art, science, and politics, merely serve theology? Why did Philosophy undertake this role? Why was Philosophy reluctant in its servitude? This inquiry may seem more historical than philosophical, but history will be invoked only when it it carries a theological or philosophical burden.
