Summary/Abstract: Middle Ages have been conceived as a time of authoritarian command of metaphysics. Even the term „metaphysics” was created then. Pre-Enlightenment and Enlightenment critique of metaphysics went so far as philosophy of our time now is routinely defined as „postmetaphysical”. Overcoming metaphysics, however,-is ontotheology that under the influence of Heidegger – today is identified with metaphysics at all. Ontotheological concept of metaphysics is massively represented in the Middle Ages but it is not the main discourse. The theme of the article is a metaphysics that does not come from some a priori premised causal foundation of being, seen as objective,supreme divine res, but from the sense of being. It underlies the positions advocated by Anselm of Canterbury, Robert Grosseteste and Nicolaus Cusanus. Today it is continued by order thinkers, including Aleksej Losev, Jean-Luc Marion, Andreas Speer.
