Scholastic Theology (also called "dogmatic theology" or "systematic theology") is an intellectual way of approaching God, developed in the Western church, and further developed in the Roman Catholic Church. It is a contrast to hesychasm.

"Scholastic theology tried to understand logically the Revelation of God and conform to philosophical methodology. Characteristic of such an approach is the saying of Anselm: 'I believe so as to understand.' "[1]
