Summary/Abstract: In the current paper, we will present part of the results of a broader work, which tries to investigate a possible influence of voluntarist theories and ideas on different epistemological concepts during the High and Late Middle Ages. In the beginning, we will outline the bigger contextual and terminological framework in which the problem at hand is situated. After that, we will try to show the possibility of such an influence through the texts of the first author of the study – Bonaventure. In order to do this we will present consecutively his theory of the will and one central aspect of his epistemology – the theory of illumination. In conclusion, we will briefly mark the transition from the teachings of Bonaventure and we will present some innovations, introduced by Peter John Olivi.
