Abstract: 

In Greek Philosophy "being" or "what really is" is in relation to form. In fact, being, substance and form usually have the same meaning and we can speak of metaphysics of form in this philosophy. The thinkers of the early Middle Ages - the fifth to twelfth centurie - followed the Greeks in this subject, even if they spoke of Being (esse) and not only of being (to on, ens). However, for them being was with form and substance. These thinkers, like the Greeks, did not consider Being as the subject of philosophy. They were theologians whose principal concern was the knowledge of God and explained their beliefs and doctrine of faith by using Greek philosophy. For a full discussion about Being and is distinction from essence we have to wait for the translation of Avicenna's works into Latin in the twelfth century.
