Summary/Abstract: This article deals with the analisis of the notion of scientia and ars in the Latin West of the end of classical era. Scientia is a Latin word that has played important role in medieval philosophy. It’s use as the translation of the Greek word ἐπιστήμη, which captures Aristotle’s conception of science and has become very important in the thirteenth century. The notion in question, more or less developed by different authors and linked to an educational environment marked by the liberal arts and dialectics in particular, is shown to be generally rooted in views expressed mainly by Augustine, Boethius, Martianus Capelae, Cassiodorus and Isidore of Sevile. Scientia is construed mostly as theoretical, spiritual knowledge that is a necessary step in the quest for the ultimate intellectual state of wisdom (sapientia).
