The aim of this paper is to take into consideration the connection between two well known theories of Bonaventure: his account of knowledge and his argumentations about the existence of God. First of all, following the Commentaria in Libros Sententiarum, I will interpret his notion of agent intellect with reference to the Aristotelic physics of light and I will show that in these texts Bonaventure analyses the mechanism of human knowledge. In his mature works this epistemic level is supplemented by a metaphysical inquiry in order to explain the reasons thanks to which human knowledge is able to grasp the truth. I will present this passage as a kind of natural theology. Finally, I will reflect on the methodological relationship between faith and philosophy presupposed by Bonaventure, concluding it is relevant for the most recent proposals in the field of analytic philosophy of religion.
