Accursius Bonfantini (Accursio Bonfantini, fl. early 14th cent.)

Friar originating from FlorenceFranciscan inquisitor, very active against alleged heretics in Tuscany. Praised by John XXII in 1328 and also acknowledged by Benedict XII (1337). Accursio took a stance against 'schismatic' Franciscans (first Spirituals and later also the partisans of Michael of Cesena). He is also known for a commentary on the Comedia of Dante, but only fragments of that work seem to have survived. For his biography, see the article of Eugenio Ragni in the DBI.

Adam Abell (ca. 1475/80?–1537?)

Franciscan friar from Salt Preston, Haddingtonshire. All biographical information concerning him comes from his universal chronicle, entitled The Roit or Quheill of Tyme. Based on the remarks in that text, it would seem that he received his childhood education in the , Augustinian abbey of Holyrood near Edinburgh, where a family member of his, namely Robert Bellentyne, was abbot, or at the Canongate grammar school serviced by the same abbey. Around the age of 20, Abell was a professed Augustinian regular canon regular at Inchaffray Abbey (Perthshire). Sometime during his years there, or even before, he obtained a proper grounding in canon law. After a number of years, Abell found the religious discipline in Inchaffray Abbey insufficient, and he began to apply for a transfer to a more strict religious community. A request to this purpose is still preserved in a penitentiary act in Rome (16 June 1508). This did not immediately bear fruit, for in June 1510 he was still at Inchaffray. Eventually, Abell left Inchaffray for the Observant Franciscan friary of Jedburgh, founded between 1505 and 1513. After his transfer to Jedburgh, Abell wrote his only surviving work, The Roit or Quheill of Tyme, a universal chronicle, which survived in a single manuscript now kept in the National Library of Scotland (MS 1746). If we can believe Abell’s introduction, the work goes back to an earlier Latin version that has not survived. The bulk of the chronicle was finished by 1533, but continuations were inserted until 1537, when the text ends abruptly (possibly when the author died). The Roit or Quheill of Tyme starts with creation, and discusses biblical, classical, medieval, papal, and Scottish history, interspersing real facts with legendary elements. The work builds to a large extent on Eusebius, Peter Comestor's Historia scholastica, the Scotichronicon of Walter Bower, and Hector Boece's Scotorum historiae, but does not copy without selection, and the author is not afraid to put his own interpretation on events. Especially for Scottish history the work is important. It might be the last pre-reformation universal chronicle written in Scotland and it provides important information on the reigns of Scottish kings until 1537, as well as on issues of church history. He also is not afraid to condemn in an Observant fashion abuses concerning commenda situations and the accumulation of benefices.

Adam de Dompmartin (fl. later 14th cent.)

Parisian friar and the brother of Guillaume de Prato (who later was appointed archbishop of Cambalic in China on March 11th, 1370). Adam entered the order in the French province. Reached the magisterium theologiae. Was then interrogated (30 September 1375) by other masters of the university regarding a translation of works by Marsilius of Padua. Between 1375 and 1381, he was provincial minister of the French province. On 20 July 1384, pope Clement VII nominated him for the episcopal see of Gubbio (Italy), yet Adam did not take up this position, as this diocese was also granted to Lorenzo Corvini by pope Urban VI. Nevertheless, Adam kept the title of bishop of Gubbio and received from pope Clement VII several privileges (to make up for this failed assignment?). Hence he received on 31 July 1384 papal permission to choose his own confessor and to hear confession from anybody who came to him for that purpose. He also received the power to bestow the doctorate in theology at the upcoming provincial chapter on any Friar Minor, as long as the candidate in question had spent the required time in a theology faculty, had taught the Sentences and was deemed worthy of the title after an examination by him and other Parisian masters of theology (an indirect way of creating additional magistri bullati). On August 4 of that same year, the pope gave him permission to stay in the private room built with alms money by his brother, the archbishop Guillaume, in the Parisian friary. One manuscript of John of Wales’ Collationes in Evangeliam Johannis now kept in the library of Reims was in Adam’s possession (`Hunc emit frater Adam, episcopus Eugubinus, a magistro Johanne Sicardi, ordinis Minorum Avinionensium’ MS Reims, 168>check!)

Adam de Howden (Hoveden, Houden/ d. after 1306)

Mentioned in 1290 and 1293 as a friar of the Oxford friary. By then, or shortly thereafter, he must already have started with his degree studies, for between 1298 and 1300 he is the regent lector in the Franciscan studium generale at Oxford (no. 28). He is one of the 22 friars presented on 26 July 1300 to the bishop by the provincial minister Hugh of Hertepole as candidates for hearing confessions in and around Oxford (and one of the eight candidates thereafter selected by the bishop). Between 1303 and 1306, he is regent lector at Cambridge (no. 29. Not without problems, however:. ‘repugnabat statutis universitatis Cantabrig.’>> He protested with the Dominican friar Nicholas of Dale against university statutes that were hostile to the mendicants, eventually appealing to the pope for help. Adam was temporarily excluded from the university, to be integrated again after a compromise settlement negociated by Cardinal Jorz). Several of his Sermones de tempore & de sanctis have survived.

Adam Goddamus (Adam Wodeham/Adam de Vodronio/Adam Woodham/Godham, ca. 1298-1358, Babwell, England)

English theologian and philosopher, and student of Ockham. Born in the neighbourhood of Southampton. Obtained his first education in logic, philosophy and theology in the London friary (possibly all the way up to the lectorate) between 1320 and 1324. Subsequently, between 1325 and 1329, he taught and studied philosophy and theology at the Franciscan studium in Oxford. Wodeham performed his Sentences lectures pro exercitio in the custodial school of Norwich, and also in the studium of London (on book 3 of the Sentences) in the late 1320s/early 1330s, prior to his acceptance in the Oxford degree program. Wodeham completed his Sentences lectures pro gradu at Oxford in 1333 of 1334, after which, as a baccalaureus sententiarum and baccalaureus formatus, he finished the necessary disputations to become master of theology. He became regent master of the Franciscan Oxford studium by 1338/1339. Due to his academic trajectory, Wodeham's Sentences commentary exists in three redactions. In the course of these, he formulated his own position towards Scotus and Ockham. Wodeham had been something of an assistant/apprentice to Ockham, during his stint in London, when Ockham was teaching logic and physics there. Wodeham's commentary circulated widely during the late medieval period (it was also abbreviated, for instance by Henry Totting of Oyta, in 1375 (in Prague or Paris?). He also wrote a Prologus to Ockham's Summa Logicae (1324/28), and questions concerning the quantity of the continuum. In his Tractatus de Indivisibilibus he argued against the Atomists. In June 1339, just after he had reached the magisterium theologiae, he seems to have visited Basel, possibly on the way back from the Franciscan general chapter in Italy, to sort out some issues regarding the Franciscan mystic Giacomo da Porta.

Adam Marsh (†1259)

English theologian. Born in the diocese of Bath, before 1200. Cousin of the bishop of Durham, Richard Marsh (d. 1226). Adam studied liberal arts at Oxford and was ordained priest. Subsequently obtained from his uncle a prebend in the parish of Wearmouth (eventually, the bishop also left Adam his library). Around the time of his uncle’s death, Adam decided to become Franciscan friar, partly at the instigation of Adam of Oxford. Took the habit at Worcester. Embarked on a study of theology under the guidance of Robert Grosseteste (ca. 1232/33), the first teacher of the Franciscans in Oxford and later the bishop of Lincoln, Adam Marsh and Grosseteste became good friends (and eventually, Robert Grosseteste also would leave his library to Adam Marsh). In 1239, Adam accompanied his provincial minister Albert of Pisa to the general chapter of Assisi. There, and also at Perugia, Adam and several other friars attacked the politics of Elias of Cortona in the presence of pope Gregory IX. Between 1239 and 1244, Adam was a member of the committee of friars that came up with a commentary on the rule (commentary of the Four Masters). In 1242/43, Adam incepted and possibly became the first Franciscan regent master of the Oxford studium (and not in 1247, as has been assumed until recently. see on this the new chronology of his life presented in the new edition of Adam's letters issued by C.H. Lawrence, vol. I, pp. xviff). In 1244/1245, Adam accompanied Robert Grosseteste to the council of Lyon. During this sejourn in France, there seems to have been a possibility for Adam to become a regent master at Paris after the death of Alexander of Hales and John of La Rochele. At the instigation of Grosseteste, Adam Marsh did not embark on this path but returned to England.  From 1250 onwards, Marsh bevame very active in English Church politics and engaged with matters of order administration, many elements of which shine through in his surviving correspondence.

Brewer, in: Monumenta Franciscana, Rolls Series, 4 (London, 1858), I, 438-489 (=epist. 247: letter to Sewald of York, amounting to a treatise on the duties of a bishop. In the course of this letter, in which Adam lists the good qualities and obligations of a pastor, Adam also lists the qualities that the bishop should inquire about in his flock. In the course of this, Adam also deals with the importance of prayer, elaborating in six short chapters on efficacious prayer and its effects (cf. Cantini (1948), 467.

Epistolae, ed. J.S. Brewer, in: Monumenta Franciscana, Rolls Series, 4 (London, 1858), I, 77-489; The Letters of Adam Marsh, ed. & trans. C. Hugh Lawrence, Oxford Medieval Texts, 2 Vols. (Oxford: Oxford UP, 2006-2010).Cf. AFH 99 (2006), 638f. In all 247 letters. Many of these letter have a spiritual import, elaborating spiritualis amicitia, christian perfection, and comparable issues. Some letters address specific issues of spiritual instruction. Hence, letter 8 (p. 89 in the Brewer edition) deals with the pastoral life (much like the famous letter to Sewald of York). Letter 159 to the Countess of Leicester (p. 294ff in the Brewer edition), in turn, is in fact a short and rather stern treatise on the domestic virtues of a wife: ‘Ex illa Dei sententia qua dicitur: Faciamus ei adiutorium simile sibi (Gen. 1, 26) evidenter intruimur, quia uxor viro districtissime tentur, et per vigoris constantiam, et per discretionis prudentiam, et per benignitatis clementiam, iugem iuvaminis impendere sedulitatem ad omnia in quibus, aut Deus colitur aut iuste vivitur, aut recte iudicatur. Propter quod omnis anima coniugalis, quae modis omnibus hoc implere non satagit, individuum vitae consortium, in quod secundum legem matrimonii intemerate servandum coniuravit, damnabiliter violare convincitur…’ (after which follow the sins and virtues of the domestic life). Letter 180 to the Franciscan provincial minister William of Nottingham deals with natural perfection, the perfect life for friars , described as a spiritual itinery, and the means to pursue it, namely the cultivation of charity and the cultivation of virtues. Most famous of all is letter 247 to Sewald of York, mentioned above.

Adam Sasbout (Sasboldus, Adam Delfius, 21 December 1516- 21 March 1553)

OFM, Dutch friar. Born in Delft in a Patrician family as the second of nine children. Studied Latin and the liberal arts at the Latin school of Delft, among the Canons of St. Adrianus in Naaldwijk, and at the St. Hieronymus school of the Brethren of the Common Life in Utrecht (under Georgius Macropedius, alias Joris van Langhveldt). Continued his liberal arts studies in Louvain, where he became a student at the pedagogium Het Kasteel (the Castle) in 1534. He received the licence of the Arts on March 22, 1537, and soon afterwards became Master of Arts. He also studied theology (under Ruward Tapper and Joannes van der Eycken), was ordained priest in 1542, and became bachelor in theology. Around this time, while still very much enamoured by the classics and humanist letters, he began to suffer from consumption, and he returned for a while to his parental home in Delft (his mother had already died in (1540). After he had recovered sufficiently, he returned to Louvain, he became interested in a more religious lifestyle. After refusing prebends and a canon position in the St. Martin's church of Utrecht, he entered the Franciscan Louvain convent on 17 April 1544. He was allowed to profess, notwithstanding his precarious health, and taught Holy Scripture as Franciscan lector of theology at the Franciscan Studium Theologicum at Louvain and at the university between 1545 and his death in 1553 (one of the successors of Frans Titelmans (d. 1537). Prolific author of biblical commentaries and sermons. And teacher of Nicolaas Pieck and Daniël van Arendonck. Died rather early at the age of 36 on March 21, 1553. A biography was written by his nephew Sasbout Vosmeer (son of Adam's sister Margarita and later in life Apostolic Vicar)

editions/manuscripts

Only a relatively small part of Adam's works were published before his death. After his demise, several admirors functioned as editors and translators of his works.

In the introduction to this work, Sasbout fulminates against the allegorical interpretations cherished by late medieval commentators: Ille abusus Scripturae est maximus, tam libere pro cujusque ingenio et phantasia confingere allegorias. Hoc namque modo Scriptura sacra esset quasi lesbia regula, et eam quo quisque vellet, detorqueret. An autem tota Scriptura et singula et ejus verba exponenda sint secundum allegoriam, dubium est, vel potius dubium non est, quia hoc minime solidum est. Praeterea totam Scripturam tractare secundum triplicem aut quadruplicem sensum, nec hoc solidum est, non solum quia difficile est semper coherentia dicere, sed etiam quia necesse est saepe multa confingere; quod utique periculosum est in tanto thesauro, cui illam debemus reverentiam, ne quid facile comminiscamur.’ Taken from Henri de Lubac, Exégèse médiévale.

Adrianus de Malines (Adriaan van Mechelen, fl. ca. 1545)

OFMObs. Probably from Mechelen (Malines). In and after 1543 active in Brussels as member of the Observant Franciscan friary (provincia Germania Inferioris). Known for two vernacular texts, respectively on confession and on communion. Aside, he republished Hendrik Herp’s Spiegel der Volcomenheyt, changing the title and the style of the work.

editions

Een salich ende profitelijck onderwijs vander Biechten, gecolligeert uuter heyliger scriftueren, ende doctoren der heyligher kercken (Louvain: Hugo Cornwels for Peeter Verhasselt, 1550) [Booklet apparently written because some good people asked him ‘…dat ick soude willen een maniere int corte bescrijven voor simpel lieden, waer door si souden moghen leeren, wat bichte is, ende hoe dat si hem souden moghen tot bichten bereyden.’ Aside from dogmatic issues, and the urge to confess regularly, the booklet contains a lot of practical advice. Most importantly, the author makes clear that a person in doubt about the expertise and the jurisdiction of his ordinary confessor, he can always turn to ‘… religieusen, die door consent ende privilegie des Paus, eenen yeghelicken mogen absolveren int bisdom daer si ghepresenteert zijn den ordinaris. Als die Minderbroeders, Predicaers, Augustijnen, Carmelijten, Johanniten, ende die oordene des heyligen gheets gheprofessijt. Van desen mach hij gerechtighe absolutie ontfanghen, als van sinen gherechten pastoor.’ The work was more or less finished by 1548. In that year he received ecclesiastical permission from the Pleban Martinus Cools, on behalf of the diocese.]

Onderwijsinghe ende instructie hoe hem een yeghelijck sal bereyden ter taferelen Gods te gane ende te ontfanghen dat weerde heylighe Sacrament, ghecolligeert uuter heyliger Scriftueren, ende ander gheapprobeerde doctoren (Louvain: Hugo Cornwels for Peeter Verhasselt, 1550). [After a dogmatic explanation, the work deals with the mental preparation for the communion and the way it should be received. Important, according the author, is to receive the communion ‘in een dancbaerheit der passie ende der doot Christi Jesu.’, f. C5v]

Adrianus Hofstadius (Ariaan Verhofstad/Hochstaden/Van der Hofstad, ca. 1540-1595)

OFM. Probably born in Louvain around 1540. he is found as a young mendicant preacher in Utrecht in 1564, to replace the renowned Franciscan preacher Bartholomaeus of Middelburg, who had died. Adrianus was also active as a preacher in Amsterdam before 1570. From that year onwards, he taught at the Franciscan Studium Theologicum of Louvain, where he taught fellow friars and lay people. From 1572 onwards, he also fulfiled the position of guardian, in which capacity he had to take care of the Franciscan friary during the siege of Louvain by Guillaume of Orange. In 1581, he is probably guardian in St. Truiden, for in that year the friar minor Adrianus Hochstaden is asked by the Liège Prins-bishop Ernest of Bavaria to preach in his episcopal town. Shortly thereafter, between 1582 and 1585, Adrianus was in exile in Cologne, where he lived in the delapidated Olive monastery and preached in the local female Augustinian monastery. These sermons on the Sacraments and the Eucharist were held in particular for fellow Dutch exiled Catholics, but also drew the interest of local lay people. In 1585, Adrianus returned to the Low Countries. From 1586 he is found at times as a preacher in Antwerp and he is again guardian in Louvain in 1592. After a short stay in Brussels, he moved to Maastricht, with the aim to organize his written works. But he died there quite suddenly on November 22, 1595, and was buried in the church of the Friars Minor. After his death, his Cologne Sermones Euchatistici were edited and pubished by Henricus Sedulius, with financial support of Adrianus's old friend from Louvain Hendrik van Elten.

Farmer, became (after an unknown man from Assisi, Bernard of Quintavalle and a further unknown convert who died rather quickly) the fourth disciple of Francis, on 23 April 1208. Throughout his life, he displayed a special love for manual work and poverty. Before and after Francis's death he lead an itinerary life as preacher and mystic, and travelled through Italy, Northern Africa and the Near East. Eventually, he settled down in the hermitage of Monteripido, near Perugia. Famous for his mystical aphorisms that were collected after his death into a series of Dicta Aurea/Detti, . He is mentioned by many Franciscan hagiographers and spiritual authors and received several vitae of his own, of which that ascribed to friar Leo, is the best-known. (In the order the feastday for his commemoration is 23 April).

Aegidius Caillou (Gilles Caillou, fl. first half 16yth cent.)

Aegidius Gabrielis (Gilles Gabrielis le Comte, 1636-1697)

Franciscan tertiary and member of a Bogard congegration. Born at Haccourt (principality of Liège). After the death of his father, his mother was from 1664 supported by a local Bogard community. In Liège, Aegidius studied the humanities, after which he went to Louvain University for studies in philosophy, Received his magisterial promotion in 1658 as number two of his class. Continued with studies of theology at Standonck college, where he reached the baccalaureate by 1662. Due to material conditions, he was only able to obtain the licence in February 1677 (the official doctorate was refused by the ecclesiastical authorities of Rome in 1679). From 1658 or thereabouts onwards, Aegidius taught as well: in Bogard schools and elswhere. An attempt to obtain a professorship in philosophy at Porc was blocked by Gommarius Huygens. This setback enticed Aegidius to join the Bogards himself. Previously an independent religious group, they had become by 1650 affilated with the regular third order of the Friars Minor. Aegidius fulfilled several offices in the Bogard tertiary network (visitator, general commissionar and provincial (between 1681-1685). He also taught as internal professor of theology in their Antwerp friary, and as professor of philosophy in Brussels. In addition, he developed himself into a well-regarded preacher and confessor among the urban laity (also among the higher middle class), notwithstanding his austere viewpoints on morals and behaviour. Several contemporaries suspected Aegidius of Cartesianist and Jansenist rigorist tendencies, which caused a lot of opposition to his teachings and his published works, even leading to attempts at censorship by his own order superiors. In 1679, Aegidius had to travel to Rome to defend himself. There, between 1679 and and 1681, Aegidius found support with some more rigorist cardinals. Yet when his supporters died in and after 1682, Aegidius’ position became more precarious. Several of his works were condemned, whereas his adversaries (Jesuite authors such as Aegidius Estrix, Gerardus Bolck and Jean-Baptiste Vindevogel) continued their attacks. Although Aegidius found strength in the sympathy towards him by Antoine Arnauld, the ongoing attacks damaged his position. Some time after 1683, he retired to Brussels and then to Louvain, where he died in 1697. Prolific author and correspondent. Many sources still demand editorial attention.

Agnellus Pisanus (1194, Pisa-13.2 1232/6, Oxford)

Was sent by Francis to France in 1217, were he was active as custos in Paris. In 1224, he travelled to England to establish a new order province. He was very successful as the first provincial minister of the English province, as can be gathered from the chronicle of Eccleston. Among other things, he was able to enlist Robert Grosseteste as teacher of the Franciscans in Oxford. He was well-regarded by the English royal house. His cult was confirmed in 1892. Apparently no works of him survived

Albertinus Veronensis (Albertino da Verona, fl. 13th century)

Italian friar. Member of the Bolognese province. Solemnis praedicator in the Franciscan order, possibly lector and preacher at the Aracoeli convent in the early 1250s, and possibly lector at the Bologna convent around 1258 [Cf. the conjectures of Cenci (1994), 275, 290 & note 57]. He is mentioned several times by Salimbene: ‘Habui quendam ministrum in ordine fratrum Minorum, qui dictus est frater Aldevrandus [Aldovrando da Fiagnano], et fuit de oppido Flaniani, quod est in episcopatu Imole, de quo frater Albertinus de Verona, cuius est ‘Sermonum memoria’, ludendo dicebat, quod turpem ydeam in Deo habuerat. Habebat enim caput deforme et factum ad modum galee antiquorum et pilos multos in fronte.’ [Cronica, ed. Holder-Egger, MGH Scriptores XXXII (Hannover-Leipzig, 1905-1913), 137]; ‘Cum autem quadam die Custodus eius [namely Enzo of Sicily, son of emperor Frederick II, made prisoner by the Bolognese, who kept him confined for life] nollent ei dare comedere, ivit ad eos frater Albertinus de Verona, qui erat ‘solemnis predicator’ ex ordine fratrum Minorum, et rogavit custodes, quod sibi amore Dei et sui comedere darent. Qui cum deprecanti nullatenus acquiescere vellent, dixit eis: ‘Ludam vobiscum ad taxillos, et si vicero, habebo licentiam dandi sibi comedere.’ Factum fuit. Lusit et vicit deditque comedere regi familiariter stando cum eo. Et omnes qui audiverunt hoc, commendaverunt fratris caritatem, curialitatem et libertatem.’ [Cronica, ed. Holder-Egger, 329f]. Author of several sermon cycles, which seemingly did not survive in full, but have come down to us partially in a considerable number of manuscripts, frequently together by other homiletic and hagiographic texts. Cenci (1994), 289 notes: ‘Fr. Albertino lettore insegna ai predicatori come tonificare e vivificare la condotta morale-ascetica dei cristiani (rarissimi gli spunti teologici) con molti e brevi acceni a svariati argomenti in ogni sermone, concedendo quindi ad ogni predicatore spazio per approfondire ciò che più gli interessava. Forse in questo aspetto sta la fortuna dei sermoni di fr. Albertino, da Montecassino fino a München.’ These texts are reflective of Albertino’s own preaching activities and were meant for study and for consultation by fellow preachers (not surprisingly, Albertino describes the production of his own works with the terms scribere and predicare).

Albertus Bludo (d. before 15 June, 1362)

Bohemian friar. Studied at several  studia generalia (a.o. Paris; in these various studia, he probably was going through the lectorate program. He also might have been doing some courses pro gradu, probably for his baccalaureate). Lector in various Bohemian friaries. In 1349, he is found as a lector in the Prague friary. In that year, the Emperor Charles IV of Bohemia asked pope Clement VI to bestow on him the magisterium theologiae. On 13 June of that year, the pope wrote to Fortanerius Vassal (former minister general) to examine the case and to bestow the magisterium if he deemed it suitable. Albert apparently received the title for he is called magister theologiae in the list of archbishops of Zarew (Astrakan, Russia), which post he took up on 24 May 1357. Albert died before 15 June 1362. Author?

OFM, Born in Amsterdam in a rather wealthy Protestant family. Was acquainted with Spinoza (letter 67 and 76) Niels Stensen and Antoine Arnauld. The latter mentions his conversion to Catholicism in 1674 in Italy. He became priest in 1682 and lector in the Franciscan order in 1684. In 1688 he became consultator of the SC. Wrote several (unplublished) pieces on Augustinian theology of grace and about Dutch censorship. An important figure in Jansenist and Spinozist scholarship.

Albertus de Bononia (Alberto da Bologna/Alberto Fantini, fl. late 15th – early 16th cent.)

OFMConv. Italian friar. Was ordained subdiaconus at Bologna on 14 March 1495 and diaconus on 4 April of the same year. He was at Paris at least from 30 November 1497 onwards, where he studied theology at least until the Summer of 1501 (still mentioned in Paris on 18 June 1501). After due examination, he was made Magister theologiae at the university of Bologna on 6 June 1502, and on 22 January 1504, he was appointed as regent master of the San Francesco studium of Bologna. Unclear how long he stayed there. In any case, he was in Frankfurt in 1508, where he apparently caused scandal among fellow friars and outsiders due to some of his teachings. It would seem he was involved with negromancy and pyromancy in Frankfurt and Berlin. For that region, the provincial of the Saxony province, Ludwig Henning took some of Alberto's privileges on 11 October 1508. Yet on 10 February 1510, the Minister General Rinaldo Graziani gave Alberto licence 'eundi per omnes orbis regiones, ad quas opus erit, pro suis negotiis expediendis (...) ac etiam morandi in domibus nobilium, quando fuerit requisitus, vel in aliqua Universitate, vel loco honesto, ad legendas Sententias et artes liberales.' [Miscellanea Francescana 26 (1926), 82 & Piana (1963), 233]. Subsequently, he moved back to Italy, for between 1512 and 1514 he taught moral philosophy at the University of Bologna. In 1516, pope Leo X sent him on a mission to Poland to promote reforms among the religious orders there [did Alberto shift to the Observance in the mean time/]. His various works seem to have been lost.

Albertus Marbachensis (Albert von Marbach, ca. 1316-1372)

German friar. Born in Marbach (Würtemberg). Followed the lectorate program in the studium generale of Strasbourg. Thereafter, he absolved some of his obligations pro gradu at Bologna and Paris (possibly as baccalaureus biblicus). He read the Sentences pro gradu at Strasbourg (becoming baccalaureus sententiarum or formatus), and thereafter taught two years a principal lector at the Strasbourg studium generale. On 23 December 1366, Urban V ordered Martin of St. George, master of the university of Oxford to examine the Albert at the general chapter meeting,of Assisi (1367) and to bestow on him the magisterium theologiae if he was deemed suitable. Albertus indeed received this grade. At the provincial chapter of Strasbourg (29 April, 1359), he became provincial minister of the Strasbourg province, a position that he kept for 13 years. At the chapter of Speyer (1360), he confirmed several new statutes, to enhance the observance of the rule. Albert died at the Speyer friary on 20 September 1372. His successor as provincial minister was Hesso von Lampertheim (1372-1386). Author?

Albertus Milioli (ca. 1220-1286)

Franciscan tertiary. Born at Reggio Emilia, where he was notarius sacri palatii (1242-). He was ordered by the podestà to organise and document the city statutes (1265-1273), now kept in the state archives. Shortly after 1273, he began to compile chronicles and histories of his region. In this period, he became acquainted with Salimbene da Parma, who lived in the Reggio friary in and after 1281. They became friends and Salimbene functioned as his confessor. Salimbene and Alberto also shared historical information.

After receiving the doctorate, he became regent at the Franciscan Studium Generale of Paris. In that period, he supported the thesis that the stigmata of Franci were nothing but the fruit of Francis’ imagination (no doubt causing a stirr). Author of several sermones de tempore and of a Quaestio Disputata de Principio Individuationis.

Albertus de Pisa (Alberto da Pisa, d. 1240)

Received into the order by Francis of Assisi in 1212. He was send to France in 1219, together with his brother Agnello, to establish a foothold in Paris. In 1223, at the general chapter of Assisi, he was elected provincial minister of the new Germany province. In this quality, he presided over the provincial chapters of Speyer (8 September 1223), Würzburg (15 August, 1224), and Mainz (2 Februari, 1227). In 1227, he was relieved from his post by Elias of Cortona at the general chapter of Assisi, and became subsequently provincial minister in Hungary, the Italian Bologna province, the March of Ancona, the March of Treviso, and Tuscany. When his brother Agnello died in 1236 as the provincial minister of England, the English friars asked for Alberto as his replacement. Elias of Cortona gave his permission, so that Alberto arrived in England on 13 December 1236.  In England, Alberto stimulated the creation of studia in London and Canterbury. On 15 May, 1239, after the deposition of Elias, Alberto was chosen minister general of the order at the general chapter of Rome. He apparently died on 23 January of the following year at Pisa. Pope Gregory IX,  who admired him, composed after hearing about his death an elegy (Plange Turba Paupercula). Alberto is the author of a Sermo de caritate Salvatoris

Albertus van ‘s-Hertogenbosch (Johannes van Gent,  1664-1740)

OFMCap from Brabant. Dutch spiritual author. Entered the Capucin order at Louvain. Made his profession on 22 November 1682 (fulfilling his noviciate under the novice master Franciscau van Breda). After two years of religious formation in the solitary monastery of Tervuren, he was entitled to start his studies of philosophy and theology in 1686. Probably was ordained priest in the 1890s. Thereafter, active at Gelder (present-day Germany), where he stimulated the establishment of a community of female tertiaries at Horst (between Venlo and Venraay), for which Albertus wrote a.o. a set of constitutions. In 1711, we find Albertus in Tienen, where he preached at the St. Germanus church. In 1714, he was vicar of the St.-Truiden monastery. In the same year, he was appointed lector in philosophy. Yet he soon retreated from his teaching (1718) and became a simple clerical friar in Ghent, spending his time with writing and with preaching in Ghent and in neighbouring centres (a.o at Westdorpe). After 1728 he apparently lived and worked in Antwerp. He died in 1740.

Albertus Sarteanensis (Alberto da Sarziano/Sarteano/Alberto Berdini, 1385 - 15, 08, 1450, Milan)

Italian friar from Sarteano (Sarziano, Tuscany). Entered the Conventual branch of the order in his home town in 1405, where he would have received the first immersion in the Franciscan life by Bartolomeo of Pisa (by then 110 years old>> spurious tradition?). Alberto transferred to the observantist movement in 1415, and received additional training into the Observant way of life by Angelo da Civitella. Sometime after his transfer to the Observance, Alberto went to Verona. There he followed in 1422 a training in Rhetoric under the humanist Guarino (under whom he apparently had already learned Latin and Greek before 1405> check). In that same year, Alberto began his preaching career, guided by Bernardino of Siena, who sent Alberto in November 1422 as a preacher to Modena. Between 1424 and 1430, Alberto preached throughout Tuscany, gaining the nickname ‘rex praedicatorum’. In 1430, Alberto apparently suffered from a bout of the Plague, which necessitated a break from his preaching tours. However, at Pentecost 1431, when Alberto took part in the Observant general chapter of Bologna, he was chosen as one of the six friar who, on request by pope Eugenius IV, were sent to Basel, to preach the crusade against the Turcs. In 1433, he preached a Lenten cycle at Naples. Between 1435-1437, Alberto worked and travelled in the Byzantine Empire and in Palestine. He also had a role as organiser and interpreter at the council of Ferrara in 1438, where papal and byzantine delegations negociated about the union between the Greek and the Latin churches. The intial successes of this council stimulated pope Eugenius IV to use Alberto in 1439 as an embassador to Christian Copts, with a letter asking them to participate in the Council of Florence and to obtain a union with the Coptic and Ethiopian churches. Armed with papal letters, Alberto once again travelled to Palestine (Jerusalem), Egypt and Sudan (1439-1441). Although a union with the mythical Ethiopean church was out of the question – Albert got into serious trouble during preaching sessions in the Sudan and also was troubled by illnesses that forced him to break off his planned visit of Ethiopea - Alberto was able to persuade the Coptic patriarch John of Alexandria to assent to union with the Catholic church. Back in Italy, Alberto was chosen as the provincial vicar of the St. Anthony province (June 1442). Soon thereafter, on 18 July 1442, he was appointed general vicar of the Observants, in which capacity Alberto sent Giovanni da Capistrano to France, to stimulate the Observant reforms there. The pope saw Alberto as a good candidate for the position of general minister, in order to unify the order. Yet, at the general chapter of May 1443, he was deemed unacceptable by the Conventuals (who apparently had had him removed with force from the premisses). Antonio da Rusconi was elected instead. Pope Eugenius IV then asked Alberto to preach the crusade against the Turcs in Aquilea. By the end of that year, Alberto is found again in Constantinople, helping his friend Jacopo da Primadizzi in reforming the Franciscan friaries there. In 1445, we find Alberto preaching during Lent in Milan. In 1446, he pacified the town of Brescia, helping to end its civil strife and establishing two Observant houses of Poor Clares (1445-1446). On 18 may 1449, he once more took part in the general chapter of the Observants (Mugello, near Florence). He died the next year, on 15 August 1450. He is considered as one of the ‘four pillars’ of the Observance (next to Bernardino da Siena, Giovanni da Capistrano and Giacomo della Marca) and is venerated by his order. A large number of his letters (more than 125), as well as sermons and orations have survived.

Albertus Stadensis (Albert von Stade] (before 1200- † after 1264)

Probably of ministerial descent. He received his education in Bremen. He became prior and later abbot (1232) of the Benedictine monastery St. Mary near Stade. He left this position when he was unable to reform his cloister into a Cistercian one, thanks to the opposition of the Archbishop of Bremen, Gerard II. He then entered the Franciscan convent in Stade. As friar minor, Albert was able to pursue his literary interests. Already before his entrance in the Franciscan order he wrote a versified version of the Summa de casibus poenitentiae of Raymundus de Penyaforte (the so-called Raimundus, full title: Summa de Poenitentia et Matrimonia), the Auriga (a Gospel harmonization in proze for preaching purposes) and the Quadriga (a poetical adaptation of the Gospels). Not all of these works did survive. As Franciscan he wrote a Troilus (1249), a poem of 5320 verses after the Troy-story of Dares Phrygius. Aside from that he elaborated the Apocalypse commentary of Alexander Minorita, and he continued writing his Chronica, or Annales Stadenses (written between 1240-1256), a universal history with much information on the German and Northern regions. In it also is found his Itinerario, a pilgrimsguide to Rome and Jerusalem, written as a dialogue between two pilgrims. In his chronicle the history from creation to Christ is presented in a synoptical manner, with computations of the five aetates. The sixth aetas, the period after Christ, is presented in the form of annals. There exists a continuation of his chronicle, known as the Annales Lubicenses, running from 1294 to 1324. About the author of this continuation almost nothing is known. For a good inkling of the content of the work and for a rather balanced evaluation concerning the question whether this work was predominantly conceived within a Franciscan context, see Honemann (2015), who questions some of the findings of Maeck (2000).

Alexander Barcleius (Alexander Barclay,c.1475/1484?-1552)

Englishman or Scot. Old bibliographers are uncertain about his whereabouts, but the fact that his translation of The Ship of Fools contains six stanzas in praise of King James IV of Scotland suggests a connection with that country. At the same time, he had cousins living in Londen near the end of his life. Not much is known about his early years. The fact that he had a good command of several European languages has given rise to the idea that a part of his adolescence was spent with travels and study abroad. During thess year, he also must have obtained a good grounding in Latin, for he later worked as a schoolmaster and edited a Latin schoolbook. Unknown whether he attended university in this early period. During the early sixteenth century, he lived in the diocese of Lincoln, where he probably was trained to become a priest. The earliest dependable information concerning him dates from 1508, when he was ordained subdeacon, deacon, and priest at Exeter Cathedral, and obtained a benefice of some kind by the collegiate church of Ottery St Mary in Devon. Barklay worked at the church of Ottery, probably as chaplain/choirmaster of the lady chapel, responsible for teaching singing to the choristers and young adult clerics of the college and for organizing the daily services in the chapel in honor of the Virgin. During his stay at Ottery, which apparently did not last very long, he translated Sebastian Brant’s Narrenschiff (1494) as the Ship of Fools (issued by Richard Pynson in London in 1509). Barclay’s translation, which included numerous additions, was dedicated to Thomas Cornish, warden of the college and suffragan bishop in the diocese of Exeter, who may have been responsible for bringing him to Ottery, and included complimentary references to Henry VIII, and a number of church dignitaties. Barclay apparently left Ottery in 1509 and four years later, by 1513, he is found as a Benedictine monk in Ely Cathedral priory. Whether motivated by a genuine motivation or not, the Ely Cathedral priory provided him with the material security to continue writing: most of his subsequent writings were done at Ely. The best known of these are five verse Eclogues, written between 1513 and 1530. The first three of which (lamenting the problems at court), were translations from Latin works by Aeneas Sylvius Piccolomini (Pope Pius II). The other two (on the lacking maecenate of rich men and on the contrast between urban citizens and country dwellers), went back to poems by Mantuan (Baptista Spagnuoli). Other works from his Ely period include a (now lost) Figure of our Mother Holy Church Oppressed by the French King (possibly from 1512 or 1515, criticizing French military campaigns in Italy), a versified Life of St George (ca. 1515), again based on a work by Mantuan, and the versified The Mirror of Good Manners (1518), which was a translation of a Latin work by Domenico Mancini. In subsequent years, he worked on school texts. He revised the Vocabula by John Stanbridge, a Latin grammer (his revision published in 1519, 1524 and 1526–1527). He also produced an English translation of Sallust's History of the Jugurthine War (ca. 1520) and an Introductory to Write and to Pronounce French (1521), which again was based on older works of the genre. Barclay’s Introductory later received a mixed review in John Palsgrave’s L'esclarcissement de la langue francoyse (1530). Other works ascribed to Barclay, such as a series of lives of St Katherine and St Margaret, etc. have not yet been confirmed. All in all, Barclay had become an established man of letters, who was appreciated by contemporary authors, when he changed course, for sometime between 1521 and 1528 he abandoned Ely to become a Franciscan friar, possibly at the Observant house of Canterbury. He stopped writing and embarked in the study of theology, By 1538, he was called magister or doctor, which indicates some higher degree of theology, but he apparently did not enlist officially as a student at Oxford or Cambridge (or at least did not obtain a degree there). In October 1528, Barclay was mentioned in an accusatory notice of the German informer Hermann Rinck, who suggested to Cardinal Wolsey to arrest and punish several dissidents, including ‘William Roy, William Tyndale, Jerome Barlow, Alexander Barclay (…) formerly Observants of the Order of St Francis but now apostates’ for Lutheranism [(LP Henry VIII, 4/2.2083 (no. 4810))] All men other than Barcley were living at that time in Germany, but it remains unclear whether Barclay was also outside the country at the moment. In any case, one of the men mentioned, namely Tyndal, was not a Franciscan. It can not be corroborated whether Barclay exhibited Lutheran tendencies at this time. In any case, when the English Observant houses were closed in 1534 (several years before dissolution of all monasteries), Barclay was apparently back in England and in 1535 he was found in Cornwall, where preached and lectured for an annuity of £4 by Launceston Priory. In 1538, his name is mentioned by the London chronicler Charles Wriothesley, as a friar who for a while refused to give up wearing his religious habit in public until he was compelled to do so. During the Summer and Autumn of that year, Barclay engaged in clandestine private preaching, for instance at Thetford Priory, Norfolk; Barking, Suffolk, at Whitsuntide, as well as in the diocese of Exeter. All this was brought to the attention to Cromwell. [LP Henry VIII, 13/2.222 (no. 571), 232 (no. 596), 272 (no. 709)]. It is unknown what happened to Barclay in subsequent years, but eight years later, in 1546, he was a beneficed clergyman in the Church of England. In March 1546 William Bowerman, subdean of Wells Cathedral, presented Barclay to the vicarage of Wookey, Somerset (Wells). In the summer of 1547, Barclay replaced Richard Eldon as the headmaster of the Wells Cathedral school. He filled this position until Michaelmas or Christmas 1548, when he transferred to become vicar of Great Baddow, Essex. This apparently was a valuable benefice, and Barclay appeared to have become reasonably well off, also because he received permission to keep the income from Wookey as well. In 1552, the dean and chapter of Canterbury Cathedral, handed him the even more affluent rectory of All Hallows, Lombard Street, London. He died at Croydon (surrey) before he could fully take possession of this new position, early June of the same year. Barclay’s will has survived, and contains a substantial number of beneficiaries, including a number of men, such as John Cheke, tutor to Edward VI, and several associates of the duke of Northumberland, all convinced upholders of the new Protestant regime. It would seem that Barclay had ended his life appeased with the Church of England.

Alexander de Ariostis de Bononia (Alessandro de Ferrara/Alessandro Ariosto, d. ca. 1484)

OMObs. Probably born in Ferrara, in a family of lawyers. (also related to the famous Lodovico Ariosto, author of Orlando Furioso) Probably studied law before his entrance in the Observant branch of the order. In 1460 or 1463 (?), he is found in Palestine, where he wrote his Topografia Terrae Promissionis. Not known whether, after his return to Italy in the later 1460s, he took up a teaching position within the order. In 1475, he was asked to travel to Libanon, to help with the pastoral care among the Maronite Christians.  >From there, Alexander travelled to various other places in the Middle East (Cyprus, Syria, the Holy Land, Egypt, details of which can be found in his Itinerarium. Also active as crusade preacher  in and after 1480 (after the Turcs invaded Italy). Friar of the convent S. Paolo in Monte (Bologna) . He probably died after the fifth of June, 1485 (date of the latest dated letter written by Alexander from Bologna). He was a rather prolific author with humanist inclinations, as can be seen in his Latin style. In one of his letters (to Simon of Reggio, edited by Fussenegger, see below), Alexander wrote at length about his travels and about his literary production, information that indicates that, aside from his letters, Alexander wrote at least eight other works (see below).

Alexander Bonini of Alexandria (Piemont) (ca. 1270 - 5, 10, 1314, Rome)

Italian friar. Theologian and philosopher outside Scotist lines of thought. Born in Alessandria della Paglia (Piemont). Took the habit in the Genoa province. After initial studies in his home province, he was sent to Paris to read the Sentences, ca. 1301-1303 (`published' second version ca. 1309). Returned to Italy as Sententiarius or Formatus, and was given the doctorate by papal bull on 29 November 1303 (by Pope Benedict XI). Lector at Bologna and Lector Sacri Palatii. Between 1307-1308, he is Magister Regens at Paris, as Scotus’ successor (his name appears on the list of doctors who advised King Philip Le Bel of France in the context of his persecution of the Templars (25 March, 1308)). In 1309 he became provincial minister in the Naples/provincia Ianuae/Terra Laboris. In that quality, he represented the community at the papal court in Avignon in 1310 against the Spirituals (represented by Ubertino da Casale). In 1312, he defended the community at the council of Vienne. At the general chapter of Barcelona, he was elected minister general (2 June 1313), a position he kept until his death in Rome on 5 October 1314. As minister general, he took action against the spirituals (see also on this David Burr, The Spiritual Franciscans), also writing on 13 November 1313 to the King of Aragon to ask his brother, King Frederic of Sicily, not to give refuge to Franciscan dissenters. He died at Rome, on 5 October 1314. His Sentences commentary has not yet been edited. He also wrote commentaries on the Metaphysics of Aristotle and De Anima, Quaestiones Quodlibeta, a Tractatus de Usuris, as well as commentaries on several Biblical books.

Alexander Bremensis [Alexander Minorita] (gest. ca. 1271)

Lay friar from the Bremen region. (Saxony province, bremen custody). Author of an Apocalypse commentary, which he composed not so long after his entry into the order in three redactions between 1235 and 1249. Following a sudding insight during the Easter celebrations, he understood the Apocalypse as a consistent prophecy on the course of history since the times of Christ, in which the visions of the Apocalyps are not recapitulated (as in most existing commentaries) but indications for a continuous and teleological process of Church history in six aetates. The end times will arrive shortly, although Alexander refrained from making explicit what is going to happen in the near future. With recourse to pseudo-Joachite writings, he underlined the importance of the mendicant orders in the last period of Church history prior to the arrival of Antichrist and the Last Judgment. In some manuscript versions of the work can be found peculiar image cycles. The work as such had an impact on the likewise 'historizing' Apocalypse commentaries of Peter Aureol and Nicholas of Lyra. For more information see especially the studies of Schmolinky (1987, 1996, 2000, 2002) and the introduction provided by Honemann (2015).

Alexander Halensis [Doctor Irrefragabilis] (ca. 1185 - 21, 08, 1245, Paris)

English theologian and friar. Born in Hales (Gloucester). Embarked on an ecclesiastical career. Several prebends provided him with the opportunity to study, first in England and then at the University of Paris. In 1210 magister regens at the arts faculty of the University of Paris. Was involved with the school controversies of 1229. Opted for the priesthood and obtained a benefice as Archdeacon of Coventry, which soon enabled him to continue his studies of theology at Paris. Around 1225, he became magister regens in theology at the same university, a position he kept until his death. In or after 1231, he entered the Franciscan order, thus becoming the first Franciscan regent master at Paris (among his pupils were, among others, Jean de La Rochelle (whom Alexander chose as his co-regent in 1235) and Bonaventura). Alexander wrote an important commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard and was a seminal force behind the introduction of Lombard’s Sentences as the standard textbook at the theology faculty. Together with several of his Franciscan pupils, Alexander embarked on a large Summa Theologiae. This was completed after his death, and became an important handbook within the Franciscan schools. Alexander also wrote sermons and several biblical commentaries, yet the Apocalypse commentary found under his name probably is from the hand of an other Franciscan (Vital du Four?, not according to David Burr (1990/1993)). Alexander subscribed to the 1241/1244 condemnations of Paris and took part in the first council of Lyons (1245). He also fulfilled several diplomatic missions for King Henry III of England at the french Royal Court.

He also informed us that Stegmüller ascribed MS Leipzig 448 explicitly to Alexander of Hales (something we missed ourselves), whereas MSS Paris Bn Lat. 15580 and 14432 are anonymous, and that the studies by I. Brady and B. Guyot mention that an anonymous Introitus in Isaiam in MS Praha Univ. IV.D.13 (dated. 1245-1250) testifies to the existence of Alexander of Hales Postillae in Isaiam. (B.

I = t. 1; lib. II = t. 2-3; lib. III = t. 4]. For book IV the old printed editions should be consultated. There are, in fact many of these older editions, reaching back to the fifteenth century (a.o.

The Summa as such is not written by Alexander himself, but is a collaborative effort of various of Alexander’s Franciscan pupils, notably Jean de La Rochelle and William of Meliton, partly based on Alexander’s own writings, partly on the basis of works initiated by these pupils themselves.]

Alexander de Riciis de Aquila (Alessandro de Ritiis/Ricci/de Domo Petri Ricci, 1434-1497)

Italian friar. Born in Collebrincioni (near L'Aquila). Was enticed to enter the order when he was 12, after hearing a series of quadragesimal sermons by Paolo da Siena (Paulus de Senis). He took his official profession on 5 July 1450 in the San Giuliano friary near L'Aquila. From there he visited several times relics of San Bernardino kept in the nearby San Francesco church. Later, in 1456, he was in Capestrano (where he apparently escaped a major earthquake due to a happenstance visit to Chieti at that very moment). In Capestrano, he visited the archive of Giovanni of Capestrano, many documents of which he transcribed. A number of these transcriptions he included in his chronicles. Afterwards, he returned to the L'Aquila region, where he became involved with raising funds for the San Bernardino friary in 1464. In that same year, he also participated in the general chapter of Assisi. In subsequent years he was several times guardian of the San Bernardino friary. He fulfilled this function at least in and after 1469, and again in 1475, when he encountered Giacomo della Marca. Four years later, in 1479, he was elected provincial vicar for one year in the Abruzzo province, In 1485, he resided in the San Nicola friary of Sulmona, in the company of Vincenzo Aquilano, who he knew from his early years in the San Giuliano friary, and who would later be beatified. In 1487, he was again guardian of the San Bernardino friary of L'Aquila, supervising the extension of the church, and in 1493 he accompanied Queen Juana of Aragon on a visit to Bernardino da Siena's grave site. In the same year he participated in the general chapter of the Observants in Florence. Along the road, he also visited La Verna. Near the end of his life, he retired to the San Giuliano friary, where he finished his historical works between 1493 and 1497. Alessandro is known for his large Chronica civitatis Aquilae, which started out as a continuation and reworking of the macaronic (i.e. mixed Latin-Italian) Cronaca of Buccio di Ranallo. Alessandro also wrote a Chronica Ordinis Minorum, a Dominicale totius anni (1470 with later additions), a Quadragesimale de credibilibus fidei (70 sermons on theological topics, possibly held at L'Aquila in 1480, Officia b. Mariae Virginis et Passione Christi, followed in the same manuscript by 50 Marian sermons (Mariale per minimum Minorum minimum fr. Alexandrum de Aquila), and a Corollarium Marialis (1488). According to his own remarks, Alessandro was also the author of other works, now lost, namely a Quodlibetum, a Festivum sermon collection, a Regula fratrum minorum (possibly a commentary of some type of the rule), and possibly also another quadragesimal collection, referred to as a Quadragesimale de Sacramentiis and an additional Sacrarium. It is not totally clear whether this Quadragesimale de Sacramentiis and the Sacrarium are different works or not. Aside from MSS Naples Naz., I.H.43 and Naples Naz., V.H. 145, nearly all of his works can be accessed via the autograph manuscripts Archivio di Stato dell'Aquila, Arch. civ. aquil., S 71-74. For the whereabouts of these manuscripts prior to their entry into the Archivio di Stato dell'Aquila, see the 1927 study of A. Chiappini, the 1982 work edited by Walter Capezzali, and Paolo Cherubini's entry on Alessandro de Riciis in the Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani.

[Alessandro's Chronica civitatis Aquilae consists of three main parts: a Chronicon Mundi, which is largely dependent upon Orosius, Paulus Diaconus, Martinus Polonus, and (for more recent information) Buccio di Ranallo. This part also contains synoptic tables in three columns to portray in graphic form the chronology and history of biblical events, the Roman and German Emperors, the Popes and the Kings of Naples (not unlike Paolino da Venezia in his Chronologia Magna?). The second part is the vernacular Chronica de Aquila scilicet Butii de Ranallo, which follows the history of L'Aquila from its foundation until 1362. This part is mainly the work of Buccio, with added poems by Alessandro, who also attempted some restructuring and the introduction of a chapter division. The final part is Alessandro's continuation of Buccio until 1495, and this part ends with a description of the general chapter of the Observants held on 7 June 1495.]

Alexius de Serenio Mediolanensis (Alessio da Seregno, d. 1448)

Italian friar. Theologian, preacher and bishop of Piacenza. Lector of theology at the Milan studium. Expounded the Sentences there. Pope Boniface IX allowed him to become magister theologiae via a papal bull (dated 18 march, 1401). On 26 September 1405, Innocent VII made him bishop of Bobbio. The Franciscan pope Alexander V transferred him to the see of Gap. By 1409, Alessio left this post to become camerarius and confessor of the pope. At the instigation of the pope, the Franciscan minister general Antonio da Pereto (chosen at the general chapter of Munich in 1405) authorised Alessio on 31 August 1409 to chose four friars for his personal service. Pope Alexander confirmed this privilege by papal bull (17 September 1409). A letter from the Franciscan minister general,  dated 7 September 1409, gave Alessio permission to visit each and every Franciscan friary or nunnery of Poor Clares. On 27 August 1411, pope John XXIII transferred Alessio to the episcopal see of Piacenza. Pope Martin V confirmed the privileges that Alessio had received from his predecessors. In 1422, Alessio met Bernardino da Siena at Crema. Alessio (apparently acting within the bounds of the privileges bestowed on him) gave Bernardino permission to establish an Observant friary. In the course of his life, Alessio took part in several church councils (Pisa, Basel and Konstanz). He died at Cremona on the first of January 1448. His body was enterred in the cathedral of Piacenza.  Author of a Quadragesimale and of Sermones de Diversis.

Alfonso Borox (c. 1390-1467)

Spanish friar from Borox, near Toledo. Entered the Franciscan order in his home town. Studied at Paris, where he reached the magisterium theologiae. After his return to Spain, he joined the Observants, which had been making headway in Toledo from c. 1420 onwards. In 1444, pope Eugenius IV appointed him general crusade preacher in Castille to call for a crusade against the Turcs. In 1443, Alfonso became the first provincial vicar of the Castilian Observants (elected at the San Antonio de Cabra chapter, Toledo). As the provincial vicar, and as the general commissioner for the order in Spain (elected in that position at the general chapter of Barcelona, 1451), Alfonso was involved with the reform and establishment of several Observant houses (a.o. Nuestra-Señora de Gracia, transferred from Nuestra Señore de Alcor, cf. Wadding, Annales, ad an. 1447, n. xvii), and new foundations such as Alcalá de Henares 1456). Alfonso died at the Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza convent (Ocaña) on 24 April 1467. Author?

Alfonso de Castro (ca. 1495, Zamora - 1558?, Brussels)

OFM. Castilian friar from the neighbourhood of Zamora. He probably started his university studies in 1507 at Alcalá. Three years later, in 1510 (1511?), he entered the Franciscan order in the S. Francisco friary of Salamanca, where he fulfilled his noviciate. Thereafter, he continued his studies at Alcalá. After finishing his education (lectorate? studies and canon law? > known that he studied under the canonist Martín de Azpilcueta), he returned to the Salamanca friary, where he became the regent lector of theology at the Franciscan studium, and fulfilled several other functions. In the years that followed, he became acquainted with Emperor Charles V, whom he accompanied to his crowning in Bologna in 1530. Before hand, he had taken part in the Franciscan general chapter at Assisi (1526), and for a while had continued his studies at Alcalá (probably the degree program, between 1528-1532). It has been suggested that he wrote at Charles V's request a now lost treatise defending the marriage of Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon (the aunt of Charles). After a stint as a preacher in The Netherlands (also as spiritual guide to the Spanish business community in Bruges), and homiletic travels through Germany and France (1532-1535), he received the licence of theology at the university of Salamanca. He was present at the Council of Trente as a theologian in the service of cardinal Pacheco (1545-1547) and the Spanish king (1551-1552, when he was also officially the guardian of the Salamanca friary). Official court preacher of prince Philip II since 1553, whom he accompanied to England in 1554, during the Mary Tudor period. Thereafter he went back to Flanders, where he died at Brussels (4 or 11 February 1558), shortly after his appointment to the episcopal see of Santiago de Compostella.

Alfonso was a prolific author. His works include successful homiletic volumes on the Psalms, the first of which was printed in Salamanca in the late 1530s, as well as a large three-volume defence of Catholic orthodoxy, the individual volumes are known as the Adversus omnes haereses (first published at Paris in 1534), the De iusta haereticorum punitione (first published published at Salamanca in October 1547), and De potestate legis poenalis (first issued in 1550). These works argue for the right of church and state to punish heterodoxy and heresy, and even could call for the death penalty, but at the same time argued that the death penalty should only given when the offense was of a very serious nature and when it was impossible to correct the accused in another way. His works had a considerable influence in legal thought on criminal justice in Early Modern Europe. In matters of Church reform, Castro seems to have been sympathetic to the stance of Cardinal Reginald Pole.

Alfonso de Espina (Alonso de Spina, † after 1495)

Spanish theologian of Jewish descent. He was a preacher and Magister Regens of theology at the Franciscan convent of Salamanca. In 1491 he became auxiliary bishop at Oviedo (1495), and titular archbishop of Thermopolis (2 December 1491). Also active as confessor of Juan II of Castilia. He wrote the Fortalitium Fidei Contra Judaeos, Sarracenos et Alios Christianae Fidei Inimicos (1459-62, written in Valladolid), which has survived in some mss and in many editions (First printed in 1471). This apologetic exposition of the Christian faith makes a plea for chasing away the Jews from Spain, much along the lines of the expulsion of the Jews from England in 1290. It also propagates a harsh policy against converts in general. The Fortalitium Fidei can be seen as a methodological and ideological program for the emerging Spanish inquisition. [The book is divided in five parts: 1. De armatura omnium fidelium; 2. De bello hereticorum; 3. De bello judeorum; 4. De bello saracenorum; 5. De bello dominorum]. Aside from the Fortalitium Fidei, Alfonso wrote sermons, and pobably a Tractatus de Fortuna Dicatus Ioanni Castellae Regi (dedicated to Don Juan Rey de Castilla).

Alonso de Benavides (fl. first half 17th cent. d. 1636?)

OFM Spanish friar. After his entrance into the order he travelled to Mexico. There, after his ordination, he became a novice master at Puebla. In 1622, a new custody was created in the Holy Gospel province (the New Mexico custody). Alonso was its first custodian, and became the leader of a band of missionaries (at first, the provincial chapter assigned to him 26 missionaries. 30 additional missionaries followed) Together with this band of missionaries, Alonso began a systhematic missionary campaign among the indigenous peoples (such as the Moqui, the Toas, the Pecos, the Apaches, the Humani, the Tampiras, the Zuni, the Queres, the Picuries, and the Piros), converting them to christianity and building a network of catechistic instruction. Eventually, the Vice Roy of New Spain sent Alonso to the Spanish homeland to fill in King Philip IV on these developments. The king was given a Memorial, containing an outline of Alonso’s missionary campaign. The King remunerated Alonso by proposing him as a suitable candidate for the Archepiscopal see of Goa. After papal confirmation, Alonso departed towards his see. After that, his whereabouts are unknown.

Alonso de Madrid (d. c. 1535)

OFMObs. Spanish friar from Castilia or Carthagena. Probably born shortly before 1485. Might have studied the arts and philosophy in Salamanca before he entered the Observant branch of the order ca. 1505 in the Saint Jacques province (Santiago province, maybe in Salamanca). Ordained priest ca. 1510. Probably active in Salamanca between ca. 1526 and 1533, apparently as confessor and teacher at the Franciscan convent. Not much else is known about his life and career. Yet, he is renowned for his works of religious instruction. Most famous is his Arte para servir a Dios (first edition dating from 1521). Besides, he also wrote the Espejo de illustres personas. To Alonso are also attributed a Memorial de la Vida de Nuestro Redemptor/Memorial de la Vida de Jesucristo/Siete meditaciones de la semana santa.

Escritos misticos Espanoles (Madrid, 1911) I, 588-649; Juan Bta Gomis, Místicos franciscanos Españoles Tomo I, Biblioteca de Autores Cristianos (Madrid, 1948) (=BAC), pp. 85-182. This edition was partly re-issued in 1960. Quite early, the Arte received a Latin translation: Methodus apte Inserviendi Deo, sive Ars Inserviendi Deo (Louvain, 1560/1576/Ingolstadt, 1578/ Paris, 1584/Lyon, 1598/Venice, 1603/Cologne, 1606/Cologne, 1608/Cologne, 1625/Louvain, 1652/La Rochelle, 1687/Ingolstadt, 1717). For early French translations of Alonso’s works, see for instance: La méthode de servir Dieu; le miroir des persones illustres, le mémorial de la vie de nosre sauveur, trans. G. Chappuys (Paris, 1587/Lyon, 1593/Douai, 1600/Rouen, 1610). [The first edition of the Arte appeared in 1521. No exemplar of this edition has survived. The work was subsequently reworked by the author, to receive its definitive (third) edition in 1526 (Alcalá): Arte para servir a Dios. Compuesta por fray Alonso de Madrid, dela orden de san Francisco. This edition, like many thereafter, also contains the Espejo de illustres personas. >From 1526 onwards, the Arte went through more than twenty Spanish editions before the end of the sixteenth century. Several of these editions contain additional devotional pieces (texts by Bernard of Clairvaux, Anselm de Turmeda, Savonarola, Theresa of Avila etc.) The Arte received seven additional editions in the reworking of the Alcalà theologian Ambrosio de Moralés (1513-1591), the chronicler of King Philip II and a former penitent of Alonso. A first edition of this modified text, which presents a streamlined text in a more modern Spanish vernacular (and also contains some doctrinal reorientations, in that Ambrosio, contrary to Alonso, explicitly sustains the importance of secundary motives (like the hope for divine reward) for leading a spiritual life, and put much more emphasis on man’s inability to achieve things independent of Divine aid), appeared around 1585. For more information on subsequent editions of this revised version (which only contains the text of the Arte and leaves out the Espejo), see F. De Ros (1958), 328ff.. A Latin translation of the Arte, by Juan Heuten (Johannis Heutenius), received seven editions of its own (from 1650 onwards). Translations in several vernaculars followed suit. From the 1526 edition onwards, the Arte opens with a prologue, emphasising the need of proper training to properly learn an art. Thereafter, the Arte consists of three parts of approximatingly equal length, each of which is divided in Notables or chapters. The first part provides seven general principles according to which each Christian should direct his actions.. The second part explains in nine chapters how these general principles should be put into practice, so that the soul finds relief from the weaknesses or flaws obtained through sin, and can make a start cultivating the virtues. The third part subsequently teaches in three chapters about the love that man is due to God, his neighbour and himself. The Arte is an ascetical/spiritual work for all Christians. It offers a simple and structured art to learn to serve God by pure love, through a thorough training of the will. It maintains that, after a long training and exercises,  the soul will learn, with the ongoing help of the Holy Spirit, to do everything out of love for God, our final cause. This love is totally desinterested ( a point modified in the reworking of Ambrosio de Morales). The soul will forget the glories of eternal life or the eternal punishments as motivation for action. It is pure love alone that will inform its actions: a ‘pratique habituelle du pur amour.’ Central in this process is the human will, which should entice the humn soul to subsume itself to the will of God, which is a will of infinite excellence. Also made clear: the quality of our love for God is determined by and shown in the actions that we do, both towards God himself, and towards our neighbours. All our actions and the cultivation of our virtues should become an expression of love. Throughout the sixteenth century and thereafter, the Arte functioned as novice training manual in Franciscan and non-Franciscan houses (also read by St. Theresa of Avila and her circle, as well as by Francis of Sales, Benedict of Canfield, and Ignace of Loyola). Some Spanish sources suggest that Alonso also produced a Tratado de la Doctrina Christiana (Alcalá de Henares: Miguel de Eguía, 1526). This would have been a simple catechistic work. Cf. J.-R. Guerrero, ‘Catecismos de Autores Españoles de la primera mitad del siglo XVI (1500-1559)’, Repertorio de Historia de las Ciencias Eclesiasticas en España 2 (Siglos IV-XVI) (Salamanca, 1971), 225-260 (231) ]

Espejo de illustres personas, ed. M. Mir, Nueva Biblioteca de Autores Españoles (Madrid, 1911), 636-649; Espejo de ilustres personas, ed. Juan Bta Gomis, Místicos franciscanos Españoles Tomo I, Biblioteca de Autores Cristianos (Madrid, 1948), pp. 183-215. Both of these twentieth-century editions are rather sloppy. It is worth while to use sixteenth-century editions. The work was first printed in Burgos, 1522 and 1524, and again in 1532 (Valencia). Thereafter frequently printed together with the Arte, such as in Alcalá, 1525-1526, and in 1567 (also published in the Latin Arte edition of Heutenius). The Espejo is a manual for spiritual perfection for noble people, written on the request of Maria Pimentel Osorio, Marquise of Villafranca del Bierzo (It is quite possible that Alonso was her confessor). After a short prologue, the author provides in sixteen chapters how the great can serve God and devote themselves to the spiritual life. With many examples of great people who lived vituously in the past, the work provides a series of general guidelines, exercises for every day, and special considerations for sun- and feastdays. A special chapter is devoted to the ‘study of the book of life’, that is Christ.]

Attributed (but probably spurious): Memorial de la Vida de Nuestro Redemptor/Memorial de la Vida de Jesucristo/Siete meditaciones de la semana santa. This work can be found in several old editions and translations of the Arte (a.o. Antwerp, 1551).  [The Memorial amounts to a passion devotion treatise. For each day of the week it presents materials for contemplation and spiritual action. These materials are drawn from the Gospels and related stories (such as the many existing late medieval Christ biographies and Passion treatises), which are presented in chronological order. A special place is given to the mysteries of the Virgin. The work was written on request of an unknown woman of noble descent.  In the prologue, the author states: ‘Y de esta causa, muy noble Señora, por despertar almas, encender en vuestra ánima la devoción por ella misma deseada, determiné de recoger brevemente, como en un memorial, la santísima vida de nuestro muy dulce Redemptor (…) En siete meditaciones o contemplaciones repartidas por siete días de la semana. Por que así como el gusto del cuerpo se deleita y es recreado con diversidad de manjares y aún es evitado el hastio, así vuestra devota ánima reciba recreación y deleite en tener cada día algun misterio singular en que pensar.’ [Cited from Jean Christiaens, Les Lettres Romanes 9 (1955), 441-442.]

Alonso de Molina (ca. 1510/14-1579, Mexico)

OFMObs. Spanish friar, born in the Extremadura (Spain). Together with his family, he travelled to New Spain (Mexico) around the age of nine (1523). There he learned the Aztek Náthuatl language and received an education by local Franciscan friars. From 1524 he accompagnied Franciscan missionaries and teachers as translator and language teacher. Ca. 1528 he joined the Franciscan order himself. In the 1550s, he was the guardian of the San Antonio friary at Tezcuco. He died at the Mexico friary. Alonso is consoidered to be the greatest early modern scholar of indiginous languages of the Americas, and the author of a range of catechetic and linguistic works in Náthuatl that are used until today.

Alfonso Herrera y Molina Salcedo (1572-1644)

OFMDisc. Spanish friar. Born in Granada. Entered the order at a very early age in the San Josefo province and from there moved to the San Antonio de la Charcas province in 1595. Preached in Argentina. Due to some questions concerning the orthodoxy of several remarks in sermons held at la Plata, Alfonso was ordered to keep silent for two years and sent away. He became custodian in the Charcas province. Later, in 1612, he became commisioner for the reorganisation of missionary activities in the Twelve Apostles province in Peru. He also was guardian in the San Francisco de Trujillo friary (Peru)and of the San Francisco de La Paz friary (Bolivia). During his later years, he was frequently preaching again . The last fifteen years of his life, he spent in the San Francisco friary of Lima. Most of his published works reflect his homiletic activities.

Alfredus Gontier (Anfredus/Gaufridus Gontier/Gonteri/Aufredo Gonteri Brito, late 13th and early 14th cent.) doctor providus

According to his Sent. commentary, he was a Bacc. Theologiae at Paris (ca. 1303-4). Pupil of Scotus. Also influenced by Henry of Harclay. Read the Sentences in Barcelona as lector in 1322 (books I, II, III survived), and held quodlibetal questions there. He is back in Paris in 1325, where he again read the Sentences. We still have parts of his Sentences commentary Quaestiones Quodlibetae and Quaestiones Ordinariae. Like Scotus, he defended the immaculate conception. He apparently took part in the secular-mendicant controversy and decades later also in the debate on the poverty of Christ under the pontificate of pope John XXII. For his views on poverty, see a.o. MS Madrid, Nac., 4165 ff. 47-66 [Castro, Madrid, no. 237]

Alphonsus de Escalona (Alfonso d’Escalona/de Escalona, 1496-1584)

OFM. Spanish friar from the neighbourhood of Toledo. Joined the order in the Carthagena province in 1514, after the death of his father. Guardian of the San Miguel del Monte friary. In 1531, he travelled to New Spain. First worked at Tlaxcala, in the Holy Gospel province. Very soon proficient in the indigenous language of the region, he started to write his sermons in it. Taught grammar and catechesis to many children at Tlaxcalla. Thereafter charges as novice master in Mexico, as well as guardian and definitor for his province. In 1554, he was one of the first missionaries to go to Guatemala, heading a missionary group of nine. This adventure did not last long: he was called back to Mexico to help with the negociations to establish a separate Guatemala province. In 1562, he departed again to Guatemala, together with two other friars. Studied the Guatemalan languages. After six years (during which he would not only engage in apostolic, apostolic and confessional work but also would have resurrected a dead child), he returned to the Holy Gospel province, as the bishop Bernardino de Villalpando found fault with the work of the regular clergy. Back in Mexico, in 1568, Alfonso became provincial, visiting the friaries and missionary stations of his province (allegedly going barefoot). He died at the Mexico province on 10 March 1584, at the age of 88.

Spanish Strict Observant and later Capuchin friar from the Lobo family. Joined the Discalceate Observants at the age of 17 and became a master of theology and preacher. After travelling to Rome around 1570, he transferred in 1573 to the Capuchin order. Became active as Capuchin preacher and convent founder all over Italy. His homiletic and catechetical works were apparently used by bishop Borromeo for the reform of his diocese. Alfonso returned to Spain in 1591 and he died in Barcelona on 15 October 1593. Several manuscripts of his moral, ascetic and homiletic works still remain.

Alvarus Pelagius (Alvaro Pelayo/Alvaro Peláez Gómez Charino, c. 1275, Salnés - 25, 01, 1349, Sevilla)

Spanish friar (Galicia). Illegitimate son of the Admiral of Castilia (Payo Gómez Charino, d. 1295). Received his education at the court of Sanchez IV of Castilia. Became a priest in the Compostella diocese, and departed for Italy in 1299. Studied Canon Law and Roman Law at Bologna, and became doctor utriusque iuris. Taught for some time at the Bologna law faculties. In the mean time, he probably also studied theology in the Franciscum studium generale of Bologna. On the general chapter of Assisi (1304), he was admitted into the Franciscan order by minister general Gonzalo de Balboa. Apparently spent several years in the Umbrian province, where he developed spiritual leanings, yet without ever questioning the authority structure of order and the church at large. He travelled through the Italian peninsula between 1309 and 1317. In 1321, he took part in the general chapter of Perugia, which discussed the poverty issue. Notwithstanding his spiritual leanings, he took a stance against the theoretical usus pauper views of Olivi, and tried to heal the rift between the papacy and the Franciscan order. After travels to Assisi (1326), Rome (1327-1329, Aracoeli convent), and Anagni (1328, where minister general Michael of Cesena was condemned for his insubordination against the pope), he became secretary for pope John XXII and apostolic penitentiary at Avignon. In 1332, pope John XXII appointed him to the episcopal see of Koron (Greece; Pelayo probably never went there), and in 1333, he was transferred to the see of Silvez (Faro), in Portugal. In Faro, where Alvaro Pelayo became very active as reformer and fighter of heresies, he quickly antagonised his clergy and the kings of Portugal (Alfonso IV and Pedro I). This eventually lead to Alvaro Pelayo’s dismissal. From then onwards, Alvaro Pelayo resided in Sevilla, where he died in the San Francisco convent on 25 January 1349 [Cf Martirologio Francescano (Venice, 1939), 249]. Alvaro Pelayo was a prolific writer and controversialist. He defended his positions concerning Franciscan poverty and papal sovereignty in the Summa de statu et planctu ecclesiae (three versions: 1330-1332, revisions in 1335 en 1340), which amounts to a plea for papal plenitudo potestatis (against Marsilius of Padua and William of Ockham. For Alfonso XI of Castilia, he wrote a Speculum regum (1341-1344). Among his other works, we can mention a Collyrium Fidei Adversus Haereses, a Tractatus de Sacrilegio, Comentarios al Evangelio de San Marco (false attribution?), a Commentarium in Matthaeum (spurious), a text on the immaculate conception, a sermon on the visio beatifica (did not survive?) as well as other sermons (MS Oxford, Bodl., Misc. Can. 529), a Tractatus de Fide (MS Guadalajara, BP 7), a Sentences commentary (ascription uncertain), Quaestiones Quodlibetales (MS Padua, BU, 295), letters (a.o. the Ritratto dell’‘uomo interiore’, which goes back to a non-surviving Latin original), and spiritual and penitentiary writings (ed. Meneghin), such as De Gradibus Humilitatis.

editions

De Statu et Planctu Ecclesiae (Ulm, 1474/Lyon, 1517/Venice, 1560). For a modern edition, see Vittorino Meneghin (ed.), De planctu et statu ecclesiae, edited in: Scritti inediti di fra Alvaro Pais. Lissabon, 1969; Álvaro Pais, Estado e Pranto da Igreja (Status et planctus Ecclesiae) VI-VIII, ed. & trans. Miguel Pinto de Meneses (Lissabon, 1996-1998). [The work, composed between 1330 and 6 August 1332 in at least three different versions, should be seen in the context of the conflict between Louis of Bavaria and pope John XXII. Alvaro made several corrections to the work in 1335 (at Ranna, Portugal, and in 1340, at Santiago de Compostella. Most editions base themselves on Alvaro’s final redaction. It resembles to some extent the structure of Bonegratia of Bergamo’s Tractatus de Paupertate Christi et Apostolorum Eius. De planctu et statu amounts to an ecclesiological work, with many ideas for ecclesiological reform. The first part (De Statu, 70 chapters), deals with the constitutions and privileges of the church, pope John XXII’s legitimacy and the current controversies concerning the position of the pope in the church at large. Alvaro argues against Marsilius of Padua, William of Ockham, and John of Jandun, and supports the primacy and supremacy of the spirtual over the temporal. The second part (De Planctu, 93 chapters) depicts the major abuses in church (also attacks against heretical groups, including beguins), society, and the Franciscan order,and suggests remedies, and also includes ascetical and meditative guidelines. Interestingly enough, he does not accept Mary’s immaculate conception]

The Latin version of the Speculum Regum was edited as Speculum Regum, ed. M. Pinto Meneses, 3 Vols. (Lisbon, 1955-1963). There also are several early modern editions [the work was written between 1341 and 1344 in Tavira. The work was dedicated to Alfonso XI of Castilia and cardinal Gil de Albornoz. It is a typical princes mirror, with a strict behavioral program. Strong emphasis on the virtues of the prince. The work closes with a discussion of just war, the dependence of temporal power on the spiritual power of the pope, anda defense of monarchy against more democratic forms of government]

Collyrium Fidei adversus Haereses, ed. in in: M. Pinto de Meneses (ed.), Frei lvaro Pais, bispo de Silves - Colírio da Fé contre as Heresias, 2 Vols (Lissabon, 1954-6), I, 4-388, II, 10-344. See also the edition of Döllinger, Sektengeschichte, II, 615-617. [The work, written c. 1348, provides an overview of old and new heresies in and outside the Iberian peninsula, notably Averroïsm, Spiritualism, Islam, and Judaism, and groups of Beguins and Begards. Alvaro Pelayo includes philosophical, theological, canonist, and exegetical refutations of the heresies identified by him. It was written for clerics and inquisitors. The work clearly is informed by Alvaro Pelayo’s own inquisitorial cations against alleged Portuguese heretics (such as Tomas Escoto, Alfonso Geraldes de Montemor, Geraldo Portugalense etc.)]

Gradus Humilitatis/Littera de Humilitate. Edited in V. Meneghin, Scritti Inediti? Italian translation to be found in Mistici francescani. Secolo XIV, 973-992

Littera/Ritratto dell’‘uomo interiore’, edited by Zeffirino Lazzeri in AFH 10 (1917), 575-582. It received a modern Italian translation by Lázaro Iriarte, in: Mistici Francescani. Secolo XIV, II (Assisi-Bologna, 1997), 981-992 [Following Lazzeri’s translation, we can signal that the work, addressed at a friar ‘M.’, contains twelve sections: Accendi in te la lucerna dell’amore di Dio; Prendi l’esempio dalle api; Esercizi di penitenza e di devozione; Vita raccolta e fedeltà alla regola; Come passero solitario; Stai in silenzio salmeggiando; Il sacramento della penitenza; Poni freno al tuo riso; Ogni estremismo viene dal diavolo; La guida e il consiglio dei frati esperti; Aspetta la grazia della contemplazione; La communione eucaristica. Amounts to an encompassing life guide for the serious but non-extremist friar, and provides insight in the penitential activities of friars. Hence, the section Esercizi di penitenza e di devozione states (trans. Lazzeri, 985-986): ‘Se, per amore ed ispirazione del Signore, ti vuoi correggere ed emendare, prendi la pratica di fare, oltre l’usanza dell’Ordine, una disciplina temperata, una o due volte la settimana, secondo la quantità e gravità dei difetti che avrai fatti. Per la prima volta la durata sia per lo spazio dei tre primi salmi penitenziali, la seconda per altri quattro, senza le litanie, e non più. Farai dra il dì e la notte trecento genuflessioni, e non più. La domenica, il martedì e il giovedì cena; gli altri giorni, a meno che non vi sia una ragione importante, non cenare, ma mantieni la vita comunitaria. Ingegnati normalmente di mangiare poca carne, specialmente di sera, e non bere molto vino, nel quale sta la lussuria (Ef. 5, 18). Per tutta la tua vita, qualunque cibo ti disponi a mangiare, arma il tuo cuore, prima di andare a tavola, perché nessuna cosa ti sazi, per quanto sia di piccola stima o sapore; ma sforzati quanto puoi di vincere te stesso con la virtù della temperanza, la quale è nutrimento di tutte le virtù e sopratutto della castità (…) etc.; The section Il sacramento della penitenza (trans. Lazzeri, 988-989) states: ‘Quando ti confessi, non ti confessare con parole generali, ma ricordati quanto puoi dei tuoi difetti e peccati, che hai commesso dall’ultima confessione fino a questa che ora fai, e dilli particolarmente con vergogna al tuo confessore, senza mescolare altro ragionamento non necessario a questa confessione, puramente e umilmente, con dolore e preposito di emendarti, sia che si tratti di peccato mortale, il che piaccia a Dio che non sia mai, ovvero veniale. Fatti mostrare da qualcuno quali sono i peccati mortali che si possono commettere contro la nostra Regola e, quando in essi vi fose offesa di Dio, confessatene, e guardati di ricadere nel futuro. Mai confessarti prima di pentirti di quello che hai da confessare.(…)]

Amadeus (Menez) de Silva (1430-1482)

Born in Ceuta? Son of Rodrigo Gomez de Silva & Isabella Menez. Brother of Beatrix de Silva, the foundress of the order of the Concepcion in Castilia. Active as a soldier in his youth. Entered the monastery of the Hieronymites of Guadelupe in Castilia around 1442. Shortly thereafter, aiming to become a martyr for the faith, he travalled towards Granada. Was arrested and sent away. Then he took a ship at Sevilla, with the aim to go to Africa. Yet the weather intervened. He returned to his monastery, falling ill, and apparently experiencing a miraculous cure. Decided to joined the Franciscans at Assisi. He obtained permission to leave his cloister and received letters of introduction by the Franciscan friars of Ubeda. First approached at Perugia the Franciscan minister general Angelo da Perugia, who refused him. A second refusal took place at Assisi. It was in 1453 that the new minister general Giacomo da Mozanica allowed him to join the order as a converso. His highly ascetical lifestyle, and his criticism of the lax lifestyle of his fellow friars in Assisi had as a result that he was more or less kicked out. He went first to Perugia and then to Brescia, where, at that moment the provincial chapter was gathered in the presence of the minister general, who sent Amadeus to the Milan friary. There he became a sacristian and subsequently was given permission to embark on long sessions of hermitic lifestyle with one other companion in a local abandoned hospital. Later, when his reputation grew, and he became harrassed by too much attention by lay and religious admirers, he retreated first to Marliano (in Lombardy), and thereafter to Oreno. In 1459, he gave in to the pressure of his superiors and was ordained priest. Thereafter he embarked on a career as an itinerant preacher in the Milan region, under the protection of the Duchess of Milan (Bianca), who also used him as a legate to pope Pius II and for other missions. In August 1460, with the support of Duchess Bianca and the people of Castiglione Cremonese, he established himself with permission of his order in the Santa Maria da Bersanora community. This was the beginning of a new congregation of Franciscan monasteries that grew due to his inspiration in the Milan and Lombardy region, a development that caused some problems with local friaries. Amadeo was successful not in the least thanks to the support of the Duke and Duchess of Milan, the pope and the Franciscan minister general (and later pope) Francesco della Rovere. After Francesco’s election to the papal throne (Sixtus IV), Amadeo more or less established himself in Rome, where he became a personal counsellor of the pope and was able to acquire various communities for his congregation. Amadeo returned to Milan shortly before his death. He died there on 10 August 1482. His grave became a cult site. Alleged author of the famous Apocalipsis Nova, a religious/apocalyptic-political prophecy based on exchanges with the archangel Gabriel, which Amadeo would have written in the Janicula cavern.

Amandus van Zierikzee (d. c. 1534)

OMConv & OMObs. Dutch friar. Linguist, historian, and biblical scholar. Born in Zierikzee, on the Island of Schouwen in Zeeland (The Netherlands). Joined the Conventuals and became provincial minister of the Cologne province (1503-1506). In 1506, tired by the machinations of Wessel Gasbrink and other Conventuals, he first retreated into the Colatan friary of Louvain, to change there towards the Observants in the same years. Spent the rest of his life in Louvain, acting both as guardian and as lecturer in the theology faculty. Well-versed in Hebrew, Syriac and Greek. Active historian. His chronicle of world history was posthumously published with additions by Frans Titelmans. Most manuscripts with his biblical commentaries and related theological works supposedly lost after the French Revolution (such as his Commentarius in Genesim, Commentarium in Job, Commentarium in Ecclesiasten, Commentarium in Psalmum CXVIII, een Historia de Dominicae Passionis, De S. Annae Coniugo, De XV Mansionibus, De Resurrectione et Ascencione, Conciones Variae, and a Libellus de 12 horis spiritualis militiae, in quo psalmum 118 pulchra divisione distinguens iuxta 12 ad varios status spiritualis militiae initium, progressum et consummationem accommodat). Apparently (cf. Allen Ep. 1044) a great admirer of Erasmus (unlike Titelmans).

Ambrosius de Lombez (Ambrose de Lombez/Jean de Lapeyrie, 1708-1778)

OFMCap. Theology lector, confessor, spiritual guide and guardian of the Auch friary. Born in Lombez (Gers) as Juan de Lapeyrie in a well-to-do family. Following a classical education in Gimont and Auch, he entered the Capuchins at the age of 16, adopting the name Ambrose de Lombez. After his noviciate, he was sent to the theology study house of Saint-Seve, and he seemed set on a career as lector and order administrator. Aside from lectorate positions, he fulfilled tasks as novice master, provincial definitor, guardian of the Auch friary, monastic and provincial visitator in the Paris province. Also spiritual guide of the French queen. An illness led to a redirection of his career. He was sent to the Nôtre Dame de Médoux friary (Bagnères), where he more or less spent the last fifteen years of his life as spiritual guide, although he continued to act in behalf of his order. He died on 25 October 1778 in the Luz-Saint-Sauveur friary (Hautes-Pyrénées), where he was visiting thermal baths to alleviate his bodily suffering. Spiritual author

Ambrosius Milanensis (Ambrosio da Milano/‘Gobbino’,1535-1615)

OFMCap. Educated by the Augustinians of San Marco at Milan, he entered the Capuchin order in the Milan province at the age of fifteen (1551). Impressed by his religious ardour and his intelligence, his superiors allowed him to continue his education. Embarked on a career as lector in the provinces of Bologna, de March of Ancona and Tuscany. Back in the Milan province in the late 1570s or early 1580s, he fulfilled several charges as novice master, guardian, definitor and provincial minister (1587 & 1590).  Due to his good reputation,  cardinal Federico Borromeo asked him to guide reforms in and take up the spiritual care of various monasteries. Moreover, the Count of Fuentes, the governor of the Duchy of Milan for the Spanish King appointed him as court theologian and personnal confessor. Ambrosio died on 14 May 1615. The local population was so convinced of his holyness, that they tried to obtain parts of the habit in which he died. Wrote sermons, commentaries on important prayers and spiritual works.

Ambrosius de Montesino (Ambrosio de Montesinos, d. 1513)

OFM. Spanish friar. Born at Cuenca around 1450. Lived for some time at the court of Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castilia, before he became a member of the Franciscan convent Juan de los Reyes in Toledo. Certainly present there in 1492. Continued to be in Royal service as well. In 1501, he is found at the Royal Court in Granada. In 1504, he took part in the foundation of the female Conceptionista convent in Cuenca. Thereafter, he went back to Toledo, where he probably stayed between 1508 and 1512. On 30 August 1512, he is appointed bishop of Sarda (Albania). It probably was a honorific title, when he was assisting cardinal Cisneros. The same probably holds for the title of bishop of Malaga, mentioned in an inscription on his tombstone. Ambrosius de Montesino seems to have died on 29 January 1514. He was buried in the family tomb at the Franciscan church of S. Francisco de Hueta. Ambrosius de Montesino was a prolific author, translator and compilor. In 1499, he finished in Cifuentes his Castilian translation of the first part of Ludolph of Saxony’s Vita Christi (translated at the request of Queen Isabella) In 1508, he finished in Toledo his Cancionero (which he dedicated to king Ferdinand), as well as his Breviarium. In 1512, he edited the Epístolas y Evangelios. In between, he translated into Castilian Augustine’s Meditationes and Soliloquia, and wrote a range of other poems and Coplas: religious poems made on popular tunes. Apparently, he was queen Elisabella of Castilia’s favorite poet (his most famous poems are the Tratado del Santissimo Sacramento, the Al destierro de nuestro Señor para Egipto, and the Coplas al arbol de la Cruz). Possibly also the author of biblical commentaries (Postillae).

Andreas de Comitibus (Andrea dei Conti di Segni/di Anagni, 1240, Anagni - 1, 02, 1302, Piglio) beatus

As a member of the Italian aristocracy with close links with the papacy - Alexander IV was his nephew, Boniface VIII his uncle - he was asked (by the latter) to become a cardinal.

Andreas de Olmos (Andrés de Olmos, 1491-1568 (1571?))

Observant friar from Spain. Missionary. Born in or in the neighbourhood of Oña (Burgos diocese). After the death of his parents, he lived in the household of his older married sister in Olmos. Studied civil and canon law before entering the order at the age of 20 in the Valladolid friary (Concepción province). Further studies in philosophy and theology followed, as well as homiletic training. He became the socius of Juan de Zumárraga, then inquisitor in Cantabria, assisted him in witchcraft investigations in the País Vasco, and followed him when Juan became Archbishop of Mexico (1528). In Mexico, Andreas became active as a missionary (Veitlalpa, Sierra de Tuzapan, Tampico, Huasteca, Pánuco), and experienced in the process a number of adventures. In the course of his missionary career, he taught Latin to native religious at the Tlaltelolco college and he became well-acquainted with several indiginous languages (Mexican, Huaxtec, Nahualt (Aztec) and Totonac). He wrote a set of grammars and dictionaries and made several translations of homiletic and theological works. Some of these texts still survive. He also is known to have organised at least one performance of a mystery play on the last judgment in the presence of Archbishop Juan de Zumarragá and the Vice-Roy Antonio de Mendoza. Andreas retired to the Mexico friary and died in the Tampico friary on August 8, 1571 (some say 1568).

Andreas de Perugia I (Perusinus, ca. 1260-1345)

Should maybe be identified with the Andreas who studied at Paris (as Sententiarius) and was made master of theology on request of pope John XXII by the archbishop of Naples (15 September 1332) and who later, by pope Clemens VI was made bishop of Gravina (Apulia, 3 September 1342). Foremost known for his treatise Contra Edictum Bavari, a vehement polemical attack on Louis of Bavaria, along the lines of the polemic works of Alvarus Pelagius. He shows himself a true hierocrat. His testament, drawn up on 23 July 1342 also mentions a number of additional exegetical and theological works (see below).

manuscripts

Contra Edictum Bavari: Vat. Ottob. Lat. 2795 [A795?] ff. 134-59 (together with other polemical treatises); Paris, BN, Lat. 17522; Venice, Marc. Class. VIII, 129. This work was written as an answer to the decree with which Louis of Bavaria had declared that John had overstepped his legitimacy was no longer pope. Andrea wrote his rebuttal in 1328 at the request of cardinal Giovanni Gaetani, the papal legate of Tuscany.

Andreas de Perugia II (ca. 1260-1330?)

Italian friar. On 23 July 1309, pope Clement V appointed Giovanni da Montecorvino (then working in China) to the archepiscopal see of Khanbalicq (Bejing). The same day, the pope gave six Franciscan friars the position of missionary bishop, with the task to help Giovanni. One of these six was Andrea da Perugia (the others were Niccolò da Bantia, Gerardo Albuini, Ulrich von Seyfriedsdorf, Peregrino da Castello, and Guglielmo da Villanova). All but Guglielmo actually departed. Niccolò and Ulrich died on the way, as did another traveling friar, namely Andreuccio d’Assisi. Andrea da Perugia, Gerardo and Peregrino arrived at Khanbalicq, where they consecrated Giovanni da Montecorvino as archbishop. Giovanni  thereafter appointed Gerardo to the position of bishop of Zaitum. As Gerardo died quickly, as well as his successor Peregrino, it was Andrea who in 1323 became the bishop of Zaitum. In this new position, Andrea was able to construct a large church and a substantial friary.  Andrea is the author of an Epistola (1326), addressed to the guardian of his home friary (S. Francesco al Prato in Perugia), dealing with his journeys and missionary work.

Andreas de Sancta Maria (d. 1618)

Portuguese friar, bishop of Cochin (India). Born in Lisbon, where he studied liberal arts. He parted for India at the age of 18, with the intention of pursuing a military career. Soon, he was attracted to the religious life and joined the Franciscans at Cochin. Later, he moved to the Franciscan Madre de Dios friary in Goa. Elected guardian and provincial (?) in 1583. Subsequently appointed bishop of Cochin in 1587. His official ordination took place the following year. Andreas embellished his cathedral and was involved with the creation of primary schools in Cochin, as well as with the foundation of a new friary and the building of the church of Nossa Senhora da Guia (both the new friary and this church were destroyed by Dutch maritime forces on 6 January 1663). As his diocese was unwieldy, Andreas asked the king to split it and set up an individual diocese in Pegou. After the death of the archbishop Matteo de Medina in 1593, Andreas also was acting archbishop of Goa until October 1st 1595. Andreas eventually sought to be relieved from his episcopal duties. This wish was granted in 1616. He retired to the Franciscan Madre de Dios friary at Goa, where he died on November 10, 1618. All works ascribed to him seem to be lost.

Andreas de Vega (Andrés de Vega, 1498-1549)

OFM. Born in Segovia, Castilia in a noble family (mother Leonora de León and father Gundisalvo de La Vega). Studied arts, languages (including Greek and Hebrew) theology at the U. of Salamanca (until 1535). Disciple of Alfonso de Castro OFM and Francisco de Vitoria OP. Received the theology license in 1535 and the doctorate in 1537. Lectured as regent master of the chair of theology in Salamanca, teaching Thomist and Scotist strands of theology. After he had obtained the doctorate he joined the Franciscans in the San Francisco friary of Salamanca on March 23, 1538. He continued teaching and later also had a substantial role in several early sessions of the council of Trent, to which he was sent by Prince Philip of Spain as one of the theologians of Cardenal Pacheco, Bishop of Jaén. He was especially active in conciliar sessions concerning the relationship between Scripture and tradition (also on the status of the Vulgate), and concerning questions on justification and the administration of the sacraments. He went to Venice (San Francisco de la Viña friary), when the council moved, to prepare his commentary on the conciliar discussions on justification. His works give a good insight in the doctrinal conclusions reached during the early tridentine discussions. Friend of Peter Canisius. Andrés de Vega probably died in Salamanca between 13 and 21 Septiember 1549

Andreas Fuenmayor (Andrés Fuenmayor, ca. 1610-1689)

OFM. Spanish friar from Viana (Navarra). Entered the Observant branch of the order in Santa Cruz (Burgos province), where he received a theological education. He soon was called upon by King Philip IV of Spain to give his verdict on the Mistica Ciudad de Dios, written by Maria d’Agreda. This proved to be the beginning of a long interaction with Maria, for after the death of ther Franciscan Andreas de la Torre (d. 1647), former provincial and general definitor of the Burgos province and confessor of Maria d’Agreda for more than 20 years, Andreas Fuenmayor himself became the confessor and one of the spiritual directors of Maria (19 August 1650), a position  he held until her death in 1665 (sharing the spiritual guidance of the mystic with several other Franciscan friars, such as Miguel Gutiérrrez, Juan de Palma, José Ximénez de Samaniego, Juan Bautista del Campo and the Jesuite Manuel Ortigas). Following earlier suggestions by King Philip IV and Andreas de la Torre, Fuenmayor likewise urged Maria d’Agreda to revise her Mistica Ciudad de Dios, which had drawn inquisitorial attention. Once a revised version became available, the extant copies of the earlier version were burned. Andrés also was guardian of the San Julián friary (1660), and was made general visitator of the Observant Castilian province in August 1661. In 1668, he became provincial definitor. That same year, the Franciscan minister general asked him to revise once more the Mistica Ciudad de Dios, due to renewed questions concerning the work’s orthodoxy. On seven May 1672, he was made general visitator in order to help with the organisation of the Observant provincial chapter of  Cartagena. Finally, in 1680, he was chosen to become the confessor of the ‘Descalze’, or Observant Poor Clares of the Royal monastery in Madrid, as well as general commissioner for the Holy Land. Andrés Feuenmayor died in 1689 in the San Juan Bautista del Ramo friary in Viana. Some manuscript dossiers of his hand, concerning the revision of the Mistica Ciudad and concerning the beatification procedure of Maria Agreda still survive (MS Madrid, Bibl. Nacional 9414-9418, 10173 & 10251).

Andreas Placus (Andreas Plach/Plac, d. 1548)

German friar from Mainz. After studies at Mainz university, he joined the Observants in the Cologne province. By 1527, he can be found in the Limburg am Lahn friary. On 13 December, he wrote the first of several letters to Frederick Nausea, a rather famous cathedral preacher at Mainz cathedral. Some time thereafter, Andreas transferred to Koblenz, where he prepared his Lexicon Biblicum for the printing press (preface dated on 8 September 1536), at the instigation of his Franciscan colleague Nicolaus Ferber von Herborn. Andreas was for a while the guardian of the Koblenz friar. He died at the friary of Brauweiler, near Cologne, where he was gathering information for another work. Plach's works should be placed in the context of Humanist and Counter-Humanist discussions on the biblical text after the publication and reception of Erasmus' Novum Instrumentum and the biblical translations of Luther and the early Calvinists. It is a pity that Plach's works do not really receive serious scholarly attention.

Andreas Richi (Andrea Richi, d. after 1381)

Florentine friar. After spending his initial years in the order in Florence or its surroundings, he was sent to Montpellier by 1333, maybe as part of a lectorate training course. He probably followed this up with degree studies, as later sources suggest that he was a master of theology. Sometime after completing his education, he returned to Florence. He is mentioned in a document from August 1353 as a member of the Santa Croce friary. Nearly twenty years later, in 1370, he was active as an inquisitor in Tuscany. He kept this position until March 1373. He is first and foremost known for his treatise against the Fraticelli, which for a long time was attributed to a ‘frate Bonaventura’.

This work was later used by Giacomo della Marca (Jacobus de Marchia) for his Dialogus contra fraticellos. Yet Giacomo refered to it as a work written 'Bonaventura'.

There he was appointed bishop of Nicaragua. According to some sources, his appointment dates from 1718 and ministered his diocese until his death in 1742. Other sources (esp. Medina, La Imprenta en Guatemala, 316) suggest that his appointment came of in 1727 and that he died in Sevilla the same year.

Andreas Thévet (1516-1592)

As the youngest son in a family of barber-surgeons, he was placed against his will in the Franciscan friary of Angoulême at the age of 10. Although he was not well-disposed towards the religious life as such, he received sufficient preferential treatment that he could more or less read the works he wanted, and after his ordination he was allowed to leave the monastery, possibly also because he found a sponsor in Cardinal Jean de Lorraine and members of the French royal family, including King Francis I. Later he also received protection by La Rochefoucauld and the Guise family. His first travels led to Italy. Subsequently he traveled to the Levant (between 1549 and 1552) and to Brazil (1555-1556). The journey to the Levant brought him to Crete, several isles in The Aegaean, a long stopover of nearly two years in Constantinople/Istanbul (where he probably fulfilled diplomatic and possibly even espionage functions for the French crown), followed by a visit to Egypt, Mont Sinaï, Palestine and Syria. At his return to France, he published his Cosmographie du Levant, possibly with the help of François de Belleforest. The work contains descriptions of archeological sites, botanic and zoölogical curiosities, but is still more based on classical and other literary authorities than on his own in-depth observations. Thanks to its illustration program (25 engravings), the work was a considerable success. His journey to Brazil became possible as the Vice-Admiral Villegagnon sought an almoner for his expedition, meant to establish a French colony in Brazil. He arrived in the bay of Rio de Janeiro in January 1556, but soon was forced to return to France, due to an illness. His experiences allowed him to publish in 1557 his heavily illustrated Les singularitez de la France antarctique, an account of his observations of the New World, interpolated with stories heard from sailors, the information gathered by the secretary of the Vice-General Villegagnon, and elements from classsical and hellenistic works, for which purpose he also enlisted the assistance of the Hellenist Mathurin Héret. In this work, Thévet described for the first time a number of agricultural products (ananas, manioc, different nuts, and tabacco), alongside of animals such as the sloth, the tapir and the toucan. The work was issued in several editions, the last of whichalso includes descriptions of peculiar anthropophagic rituals of the Tupinamba. In January 1559, he finally obtains permission to leave the Franciscan order for once and for all, and he establishes himself in the Quartier Latin of Paris, Rue de Bièvre. A year later he is appointed official geographer of the French Crown (under Henry II, Francis II, Charles IX and Henry III), and from 1576 onwards he is almoner of Catherine de Medici. His position and travels allow him to build up a large cabinet of New World curiosities in the Rue de Bièvre, which also included documents such as the famous aztec Codex mendoza. As royal geographer, Thévet embarked on a large project, namely the production of a universal geography, covering all four known continents. This Cosmographie universelle was published for the first time in 1575, and built both on information gathered on his travels and on a large number of existing compilations (including Giovanni-Battista Ramusio’s Navigationi et Viaggi). Beyond this geographical venture, Thévet also embarked on more humanist historical ventures, leading in 1584 to the publication of the nine-volume Vrais portraits et vies des hommes illustres, which stands squarely in the De viris illustribus tradition and along the lines established by Plutarch. It includes people from Antiquity, Church Fathers, medieval saints and theologians, but also modern explorers and rulers of the New World (including Columbus, Amerigo Vespucci, Ferdinand Magellan, Pizarro, and an Aztec, Inca and Tupinikin ruler). The work includes at least 224 portrait engravings. Thévet’s works drew out criticism from learned contemporaries, who disliked his borrowings and his selections, but he also found fascinated admirors. From the 1570s onwards, Thévet also had trouble balancing between different political and religious factions. As an hommage to Thévet’s natural descriptions, Lineaus named one tree described by Thévet the Thevetia ahouai (Apocynaceae or dogbane family), and a plant the Thevetia peruviana (now known as the Cascabela thevetia/yellow oleander, also within the Apocynaceae or dogbane family).

Angelus Bix (Angel Bix/Biss, ca. 1645/6–1695)

Franciscan friar from London. Possibly related to the Clarissan nun Margaret Figg in Flanders (whose mother was Brigit Biss). Angel was ordained priest around 1672, some six years after he joined the Franciscans. Where and when exactly he joined the Franciscans is unknown. He is mentioned in the acts of the English Franciscan chapter held at Somerset House in London in 1677, which asked him to go to Aire-sur-la-Lys, south of St Omer, to assist the chaplain to the Poor Clares there (Joachim St Ann). The provincial chapter of 1680, held in Bruges, reappointed Bix to Aire, whereas the provincial chapter of York from 1681 transferred him to the Poor Clares in Bruges. In 1684 he joined the English mission (his chaplain position in Bruges was then taken by Joseph Woodward). During the reign of James II, Bix worked as a preacher in and around the newly created friary at Lincoln's Inn Fields in London, and he also was for a while chaplain/confessor to the Spanish ambassador. In the fateful year 1688, he was elected titular guardian of Canterbury friary (which had not been re-established), and he published A sermon on the passion (...) preach'd before her majesty the queen dowager in her chappel at Sommerset House upon Good Fryday, 13 April 1688. Soon after, in November/December, he and the other friars had to leave England, due to the Glorious Revolution. Bix returned to Flanders, where he again became chaplain/confessor to the Poor Clares at Aire, and later to the third order sisters in the ancient Princenhoff palace in Bruges. He (secretly?) returned to England about 1692, and in 1693 was the praeses of the settlement of Osmotherley in Yorkshire, and later in the town of York. He apparently died at Durham on 15 January 1695. Aside from the 1688 sermon, none of his works did survive?

Angelus Clarenus (Pietro de Fossombrone/Angelo Clareno, ca. 1255 - 15, 06, 1337, S. Maria d'Aspro)

Italiaanse minderbroeder en een van de leidende figuren onder de spirituele franciskanen uit de omgeving van Ancona. Geboren in Fossombrone (March of Ancona) in een boerenmilieu. Trad in de orde rond 1270. Raakte al snel inconflict met superieuren over de regelobservantie (in ordegevangenschap tussen 1274 en 1289?). Minister generaal Raymond Gaufredi zond hem en een groep andere spirituelen naar Armenië (naar het hof van koning Héthoum II). Na terugkeer in Italië handhaafden zich de conflicten tusen Pietro de Fossombrone en zijn medestanders (zoals Pietro de Macerata). Daarop verzamelde Pietro zijn volgelingen in 1294 in de congregarie van de Pauperes Heremitae Domini Coelestini (op dat tijdstip nam hij de naam Angelo Clareno aan). Deze congregatie verwierf de steun van paus Celestinus V. Maar kort daarna werd deze congregatie op instigatie van de Franciscaanse orde door paus Bonifatius VIII ontbonden. Angelo vluchtte daarop naar Griekenland, waar hij tot 1305 bleef. Daarna keerde hij terug om zich te verdedigen, o.a. op het concilie van Wenen (1311). Hij raakte beïnvloed door het gedachtengoed van Petrus Johannes Olivi en Ubertino van Casale. Zijn ideeën over de franciskaanse armoede leidden uiteindelijk ook tot een groot conflict met de paus (Bonifatius VIII en vooral Johannes XXII). Aanvankelijk vond hij steun bij cardinaal Colona en cardinal Orsini. Angelo Clareno kon zich met hun steun schuilhouden in Avignon, Valencia en Carpentras. Na de veroordeling van de spiritualen door paus Johannes XXII weigerde Angelo zich te onderwerpen. Hij vertrok naar Subiaco, waar hij zestien jaar verbleef. Toen paus Johannes XXII de gardiaan van de Aracoeli en de inquisitie beval om Angelo Clareno te arresteren, vertrok Angelo naar Zuid-Italië (Koninkrijk Napels), waar hij stierf op 15 juni 1337 in Santa Maria de Aspro. Dankzij zijn studies en zijn reizen in Armenië en Griekenland was Angelo een groot kenner van de Griekse patristiek, waarvan hij ook een aantal werken in het Latijn vertaalde, o.a. de Scala Paradisi van Johannes Climacus (a.o. Naples Naz. XII. F. 32; XII. F. 47; XIII. G. 35) en de regel van Basilius. Daarnaast was hij de auteur van de beroemde Historia septem tribulationum, een eschatologisch getinte geschiedenis van de vervolgingen van de 'echte' franciskanen door vijanden binnen en buiten de orde. Er zijn ook een regelcommentaar en veel van zijn brieven bewaard gebleven, die een schat aan informatie bieden over zijn opvattingen over de usus pauper en over zijn (eigenlijk heel genuanceerde) ecclesiologische, moraaltheologische en eschatologische ideeën.

Angelus de Clavasio (Antonio Carletti/Angelo Carleti de Chivasso, OFMObs, 1411-1495), beatus.

OMObs. Born in Chivasso (Piedmont). Obtained a doctorate in civil and canon law at Bologna. Entered the Observant branch of the Franciscan order at the age of 30, taking the name of Angelo. Active in the order studia as canonist and moral theologian. Served several times as vicar-general. On request of Sixtus IV (1480) he preached the crusade against the Turcs, who had taken Otranto. In 1491, Innocent VIII commissioned him to stop the progress of Waldensianism in Savoy. He died in Cuneo (Piedmont). Author of the famous Summa Angelica (Summa Casuum Conscientiae, finished ca. 1486, or 1470 according to Gillmann) which in itself is heavily dependent upon the Summa Pisana. Angelo’s Summa was published 20 times between 1486 and 1500, and frequently thereafter. . It amounts to a detailed repertory for the right theological and penitential answer on every penitential problem. When, in 1520, Luther burnt the papal bull of excommunication, Thomas’ Summa Theologica, and the Decretals, he also burnd a copy of Carletti’s work (Luther regarded it a Summa diabolica). Less fierce, but as derigatory was Erasmus’ verdict in the Antibarbari. For him the Summa Angelica and comparable compendia were the work of congestores.

Angelus de Joyoso (Ange de Joyeuse/Henri, comte de Batarnay et du Boussage, 1563-1608)

OFMCap. Henry de Joyeuse, count of Boussage/Bouchage. Born at Paris as the third son of Marie de Batarnay, countess of Bouchage and Guillaume de Joyeuse, luitenant general for the French king in Languedoc. Studied at Navarra college (Paris), and married in 1582 with Catherine de Nogaret de La Valette (sister of the Duke of Épernon). They obtained a daughter Ihenriette-Catherine, later the wife of the Duke of Montpensier). After the death of his wife on 8 August 1587, Henry entered the Capuchin order on September 4 of that same year (in the rue Saint-Honoré convent), taking the name Ange and writing a testament. Later, due to the death of his brother, Ange had to leave the cloister (October 1592) to take charge of the family estates in Languedoc and take on the political functions involved with it. As a royal maréchal and governor, Henry played a major role in the troubles with the Catholic League and the eventual acceptance of King Henry IV. With the agreement of the latter, Henry eventually is able to return to the cloistered life on 8 march 1599. Aside from preaching asignments, he fulfills several administrative charges in the order (guardian of the Saint-Honoré convent, provincial of the Parisian province (1601-1603, 1607), general definitor of his order (1608-). He is active in the reform of the Benedictine Montmartre monastery, and in close contacts with religious women, such as marie de Beauvilliers (abbess of the Benedictine Montmartre monastery) and Marie d’Hannivel (Marie de la Trinité, at the Carmel monastery of Dijon). Although Ange preached frequently, he apprently did not produce a significant oeuvre. It was Benedict of Canfeld, his close friend, who incorpoated some of Ange’s insights in his own writings.

Angelus de Lantosque (d. 1670)

OFM. French friar from the French alpine region. Entered the order in the Piemonte province and later transferred to Rome. Acknowledged as an effective and learned theologian, he was sent by the Congregatio de Propaganda Fidei as a missionary to the Valais region. Later, he is found as a lector and preacher of the Roman province, spending a lot of time on the compilation of encyclopaedical works on canon law, such as the Directorium Iuris Canonici, which apparently was never printed. On 2 March 1664, the minister general gave him permission to print the Theatrum Regularium. He also wrote a work of spiritual exercises for novices and prepared for the press the fifth volume of Cherubini’s Bullarium Romanum. This latter work was eventually was published after Angelo’s death by his fellow friar Giovanni Paolo.

Angelus de Perpignan (Juan-Carlos del Pas/Angelo del Pas, 1540-1596)

OFM en OFMRec. Born at Perpignan as son of Juan del Pas and Anna Pincarda (nobles at St. Martin). Was admitted into the local Franciscan convent at the age of fifteen, receiving the name of Angelo. After his noviciate, he was sent for three years to Alcalà, where he became acquainted with Francisco Gonzaga (the future minister general), who did his noviciate at Alcalà. After his training, Angelo became a lector and preacher in the Catalonian Barcelona province, taking up several administrative charges in the process. He became involved with the erection of Recollect houses in the Barcelona province, which were gathered into one custody, with Angelo as its custos (appointed at the Barcelona provincial chapter of February1579). Soon (the same year), Angelo and his Recollect friars, with recourse to the constitution of Gregory XIII (June 3rd, 1579), claimed independence for their custody, turning it into a separate province. This lead to a conflict with the Observant provincial, and the matter was relegated to the papacy. The pope eventually supported Angelo, so that, by March 19, 1580, the Recollect custody became a province. Nevertheless, the papal nuntius, backed up by the Spanish king, used some formal pretext to suppress the province and the custody altogether. This led to another round of litigation, but Angelo was unable to vindicate his case. He transferred to Genoa, and from there went to Palermo, where he preached during Lent 1584.  Thereafter, he retired to an eremitical life at Messina, until Pope Sixtus V, with whom Angelo was on friendly footing, called him to Rome (1585). There, on request of the pope, Angelo finalised a number of gospel commentaries. He died at Rome on 23 August, 1596 and was buried to the right of the main altar of the church of San Pietro in Montorio. Yet at the request of Pope Gregory XIV, his heart was given to the reformed Franciscan convent of San Francesco on the other side of the Tiber. Angelo left a large number of writings, yet several never found their way to the printing press and are kept in various libraries and archives at Rome and in Spain. Among these can be found commentaries on Matthew and on the first three chapters of John. His printed works are listed below.

Angelus de Perugia (Angelo Serpettri/Angelo Christophori, fl. 15th cent.)

OMConv. Perugian friar. Entered the order at an early age in his home town. Went through the provincial study programme and in 1429 was a lector of philosophy at the university of Perugia (1429-32).  Probably obtained his doctorate in theology in the years thereafter. In the degree programme leading to that degree he commented on the Sentences. Appointed inquisitor in Umbria and the Spoleto valley (before 1437),  and almost immediately called away from that task to take seaty in the committee that was to discusss propositions of union with thee Byzantine church at the Council of Florence and Ferrara. Provincial minister of the province of St. Francis in 1438. Procurator general of the order in 1445 (appointed at Rome).  As pope Eugenius IV had given the Aracoeli at Rome to the Observants, Angelo had to reside at the parish church San Salvatore in unda. After the death of minister general Antonio Rusconi, pope Nicholas V appointed Angelo to the position of general vicar (26 August, 1449).  At the general chapter at the Acacoeli convent, held with papal presence on 24 may 1450, Angelo was elected minister general of the order. Opposed to the Observant branch of the order (as can be seen in his  attempts at revocating Observant autonomy at the general chapter of Perugia, May 1453), he nevertheless was interested in order reform. Angelo died shortly after the Perugia chapter in his home town and died on August 20 of that same year.

Angelus de St. Franciscus (Richard Mason, 1599-30 December 1678)

English friar from Wiltshire. Might have been from a Protestant background. In any case, he joined the Franciscan order in the Douai St. Bonaventure convent. There he made his profession in 1629. Became a well-regarded member of his community and took up several charges at the provincial level: visitator of franciscan houses in Brabant and provincial between 1659 and 1662. Subsequently, he became the chaplain of Lord Arundel at Wardour Castle, and became engaged in apostolic works. In 1675, he retired to the Douai convent, where he died three years later. Rather productive author.

Angelus Petriccia da Sonnino (17th cent.)

OFMConv. Friar from Sonnino (Campania). After his entrance in the Conventual branch, he was sent to the St. Bonaventure college at Rome (1628). His graduation as doctor of philosophy was speeded up, so thaat he could depart on behalf of the papacy a diplomatic mission on the Papal court of the Persian Shah. To this purpose, Angelo travelled to Constantinople, to wait there for the opportunity to continue his journey. Yet There he received orders from the Congregatio de Propaganda Fidei to travel to the prefecture of the Catholic missions for Moldavia, Walachia and Transsylvania. He worked there until 1633. Thereafter, he became provincial minister of Hungary, presiding in 1636 over the chapter of Pettau (Styria). Returning to Italy, he receives at Venice his appointment to the position of patriarchal vicar of Constantinople. At Constantinople, Angelo soon has conflicts with the Greek Patriaerch Cyrille Lucari, who, in turn, is supported by Calvinist spokesmen in the area. Angelo succeeds in overcoming the opposition of Lucari (who ends up being drowned in the Black Sea?), and has some influence in the election of the new Greek Patriarch, Cyrillus de Veria, who is hostile to the Calvinist legates. Angelo and Cyrillus de Veria negotiate a union betweeen the Greek and the Roman church, which is realised in 1638 (with the support of pope Urban VIII). During his charge at Constantinople, Angelo also holds discussions with Lutheran merchants, one fruit of which is his work Turris David. Returned to Rome after the election of pope Innocent X, Angelo teaches moral theology at the Santi Apostoli convent. He also maintains an advisory postion at the Congregatio de propaganda Fidei, involved with liturgical and ritual matters for the Greek church. On 29 September 1661, he is elected provincial for the Roman province at the chapter of Cività Castellana. Thereafter general procurator for the order (appointed at the general chapter of Rome, 1665. In this position, Angelo becomes involved with a process between the conventual friars of Naples and the town concerning a statue of St. Anthony, and has a stake in the beatification proces of the Poor Clare Salome of Poland (d. 1268). Angelo dies on 10 December 1673.

Anselmus Turmeda (d. c. 1355-1430)

Friar from the cataluña province who left the order and converted to Islam. Anselm Turmeda was born in Majorca. He became a Franciscan friar (Cataluña province) early in life, and afer finishing his education and ordination, he apparently was active as confessor to members of the Aragonese royal family. At a certain juncture, he traveled to Tunis, renounced his faith and his profession and converted to Islam (for political, personal or intellectual (Averroist?) reasons?). In Tunis, he was known as Abd Allah al-Tarjuman al-Mayurqi. In the course of time, he obtained a position at the court of Sultan Abu al-Abbas Ahmad and afterwards at the court of his son Abu Faris Abd al-Azziz. In the mean time, he kept abreast with European developments and even engaged in epistolary exchanges with European monarchs and popes (also talks about his possible return and ‘reconversion?). While in Tunis, he kept on writing in Catalan, including his Llibre de bons amonestaments (Book of Good Precepts, 1396), the Cobles del regne de Mallorques (Verses on the Kingdom of Majorca, a series of aforisms, including laments on the ‘loss’ of his homeland), a series of political prophecies, and La disputa de l’Ase (1417-18). In addition, he wrote Arabic works, including his biography (Tuhfat al-adib fi radd ala ahl al-salib (Tuhfat al-Arib fi al-Radd ‘ala ahl al-Salib)/The Gift to the Intelligent for Refuting the Arguments of the Christians), which only became known in Europe in the nineteenth century.

Interestingly, after his death, Christian authors invented tales of his martyrdom following his repentance and renunciation of Islam, after which he would have been killed by the Islamic populace in Tunis. This is, for instance, thematized in Jaime Coll, Vida y martirio de el muy reverendo Padre Fray Turmeda (1738), which turns Turmeda in a Franciscan prisoner held captive in Tunis. After the Sultan saved him from lynching, the same sultan would have execute his after he refused to renounce Christianity again. All these hypotheses had to be put away once and for all after J. Spiro’s French translation of Turmeda’s Arabic autobiography (Tuhfat al-adib fi radd ala ahl al-salib/The gift of the writer to refute the partisans of the cross, written in 1420). Afterwards, some Spanish Arabists have called him a plagiarizer of Arabic sources for his Disputa de l’Ase.

editions

Llibre de bons amonestaments. Turmeda himself dates the work to April 1398, some eleven years after his settlement in Tunis. In total, it contains 428 poems arranged in three rhyming stanzas followed by a rhyme-free one. The work was for a long time rather very popular in Catalonia, sometimes popping up in primary school readers (entitled Franselm (from ‘fra Anselm’)). It has been edited as: Anselm Turmeda, Llibre de bons amonestaments i altres obres. Llibre de bons amonestaments cobles de la divisió del regne de Mallorques, Llibre de tres profecies. Comentaris, preliminars, ed. Míkel de Epalza (Palma de Mallorca: Editorial Moll, 1987)

La disputation de l’Asne. This work was written in 1417 in Catalan, yet it has not survived in its original language, in part because the Inquisition of Madrid put it on the Index of prohibited books in 1583. The work survived thanks to a late medieval French translation. As it stands, it presents a dispute among a donkey and a friar, arguing about the supremacy of men over animals, each one defending their genre. Finally, men win because Christ was incarnated in a man. Still, the text is very critical towards mankind, mocking all kinds of religious, moral, and moral aspects. For modern editions of the late medieval French translation, see: R. Foulché-Delbosc, ‘La disputation de l’Asne’, Revue Hispanique 24 (1911), 358-479 (text of first French edition of 1544); Disputa de l’ase (Barcelona: Barcino, 1928); Anselm Turmeda, Dispute de l’Ane, ed. Armand Llinarés (Paris: J. Vrin, 1984); The ‘lost’ Catalan text has been reconstructed by more than one scholar. See: Llibre de Disputació de l’ase contra frare Encelm Turmeda, ed.

Antonius Ailhaud (Antoine Ailhaud, d. after September 1419)

French friar from the Provence. Master of theology and appointed by his provincial minister to the position of inquisitor in the regions of Provence, Arles, Aix, Embrun, Vienne, Tarentaise, the Dauphiné, Geneva, Savoye, Venaissin, Die, Valence, Forcalquier, the Orange principality, Avignon and Salon. On the first of June, 1393, pope Clement VII confirmed him in these functions for life, making him only answerable to the general chapter of the Franciscan order. A papal bull issued by pope Martin V on 10 September 1419, makes clear that, by then, he is too old and weak to fulfill his functions.

Antonius Bonhouwer (Bomhouwer, fr. first half 16th cent.)

Franciscan lector in Riga. He wrote in 1524 a Informatio quo pacto commodius resistendum Lutheranae heresi, directed to the papal nuntius Cardinal Lorenzo Campeggoo, to set out a program to combat Lutheranism more efficaciously. He asked for instance for a papal bull against the new heresy, as well as a proper elucidation of Catholic indulgence practice, a reduction of the number of feast days and a further reform of the religious orders, to acommodate some of the most virulent criticisms raised against the Catholics.

Antonius Broick de Königsstein (Antonius Brokwy/Broickwy von Koenigsteyn/Antonius Bruich, d. 1541)

Franciscan friar from Königstein-am-Taunus and member of the Cologne province. Preacher in Cologne. Alongside of other order members such as Nicolaus Herborn, Heinrich Helm and Johannes Leerdam, he preached in the Dom Cathedral, also taking a stance against Lutheranism. Guardian in Brühl (August 1529-July 1530), Koblenz (1531-1537) and Nijmegen (August 1539-1540). Died in Huisbergen, not so far to the East of Nijmegen near Cleve, on 11 December 1541. Sermonist and author of Bible studies manuals. Well regarded by Nicolaus Herborn. Took an active stance against Lutheranism without becoming polemical but by expounding Catholic doctrine.

The Concordantia breviores amounted to an alphabetically organised Bible concordance, initially written for his own use, and only reluctantly handed over to Nicolaus Herborn in order to have it published. The 1527 edition contains a notice (lectori notatu necessaria, in which the publication of several other works of Antonius Broickwy was announced, namely the already published Postillae, a commentary on the Pauline letters, and a commentary on the four Gospels. According to De Troeyer, 109, this indicates that the author had embarked on a systematic edition process to make his works available for a wider public. Due to his death in 1541, this was not completely realized.

There are various editions, sometimes split between a Summer and a Winter part, for instance: Postillae sive Enarrationes de Tempore et de Sanctis (Paris, 1544). See De Troeyer, who mentions between 11 and 18 editions until 1558.

Passio Domini nostri secundum quatuor Evangelistas, per eundem authorem (1530/Paris: Petrus Consin, 1533/Paris: Vivantius Gaultherot, 1542). This works, initially published with the 1530 edition of the Postillae, amounts to a commentary on the Passion, based on more extensive Gospel commentaries and Passion meditation treatises of Augustine, Bede, Bonaventure, Chrysostom etc. This work was also published independently later on.

Enarrationes in IV Evangelia/In quatuor Evangelia enarrationes (Cologne: Petrus Quentel, 1539 2x/Paris, 1543/ Paris, 1545/Venice, 1548/etc.): exegetical sermons/treatise with materials for preachers, finished when Antonius was in Nijmegen. De Troeyer mentions ca. 15 editions until 1555. The two 1539 editions issued in Cologne by Petrus Quentel differ from each other, in the sense that one of them was a luxurious one volume in-folio edition (Antonii Broickwy a Konigstein, viri doctissimi, & observantiae regularis, Novimagensis Gardiani, eruditissimarum in quatuor Evangelia enarrationum, nunc primum ex ipso archetypo excerptarum, Opus Praeclarum, in duas partes divisum), whereas the other one was a two-volume in-octavo edition. The work was dedicated to Duke William V of Gullik. It amounts to a florilegium of older commentaries surrounding the life of Christ. The second part focuses exp. on the Gospel of John (with important readings for Lent and Easter period) and the whole work is also organized to provide easy access to preachers

Monotessaron Evangeliorum (Cologne: Eucharius Cervicornius, 1539/Cologne: Eucharius Cervicornius for Petrus Quentel, 1542/>>). The 1542 edition was included in the work of another author under the title: D. Eustachii Fidansae episcopi Albanensis Sanctaeque Romanae Ecclesiae presbyteri Cardinalis, auctoritatum sanctarum libri quatuor, concionatoribus omnibus ac piis lectoribus masxime utiles futuri, Antonii item Broeckwey a Konigstein, breve Evangeliorum Monotessaron, concionatoribus itidem omnibus mire conducturum, Cum indice Evangeliorum & Epistolarum, ut in ecclesiis leguntur, per totum annum (Cologne: Eucharius Cervicornius for Petrus Quentel, 1542). Later editions were sometimes combinations of the Monotessaron and the Concordantiae. the Monotessaron of Antionius deals first of all with the life of Christ and divides the materials into specific themes that are discussed on three different levels. In the second part of the work, these themes are connected with the biblical readings of the liturgical year.

Enarrationes in Epistolam Pauli ad Romanos (Paris: apud Carolum Guillard, 1543?/Louvain: Heredi Arnoldi Birckmanni, 1556 & Louvain: Servatius Sassenius pro Her. Arnoldi Birckmanni , 1556). This commentary on Paul's letter to the Romans was meant to be the first of a series of commentaries on the letters of Paul but Antonius's death interrupted their edition process.

Homiliae in Evangel. Dominicalia (Cologne: S. Braun, 1578)> a later collection of Anthony's Sunday homelies taken from his Postillae and his Ennarationes in quatuor Evagelia, and probably also sermons by other authors.

Postillae de Gloriosissima Virgine (Venice?; Paris, 1541>>?) probably a collection of sermons on the Virgin taken from other sermon collections of Anthony. Apparently, sermons on the Virgin by Antonius also ended up in other collectionsm, such as Petrus de Alva y Astorga, Bibliotheca Virginalis, II (Madrid, 1648), 734-764 (six sermons from the Postillae and two from the In quatuor Evangelia enarrationes.

Antonius Bruodin (Bruodine/Anthony MacBrody/Mac Bruaideadha, d. 1680)

Irish Franciscan friar. Born at Ballyhogan, as the son of Miler Bruodin, a landowner, and Margaret O'Mollony (who apparently was related to the Killaloe bishops Malachy and John O'Mollony). Following initial schooling Anthony became a Franciscan when he was 20 years old, and left for the Continent in 1643. He studied theology at the Irish St Isidore's College in Rome. After finishing his studies there, he asked for a transfer to the Irish College of the Immaculate Conception in Prague, possibly also to be closer to one of his relatives. His appointment at the Irish College in Prague did not come through, possibly due to opposition from Like Wadding and issues of overcrowdung. Instead, Anthony ended up not in the College in Prague pertaining to the Irish province, but as perfect of studies in the philosophical study house of the Franciscan friary of Olmutzm, which was part of the Bohemian St. Wenceslas province. In September 1659, he was elected definitor at the provincial chapter of Neuhaus. This was followed by a stint as guardian of the Olmutz friary between 1662 and 1663. The year after, when he was already lector jubilatus, he presided over the 1664 general chapter disputation of the Bohemian friar Anthony William Brauczek in Aracoeli (Rome), something he did again in 1667, when another Bohemian friar was asked to defend his thesis at this venue. Between 1668 and 1670 he was guardian of the friary of Our Lady of the Snows (Panny Marie Snžné) in Prague, the head friary of the Franciscan Bohemian province. Two years later, in 1672, he was elected guardian of the Neuhaus. In these latter two positions, he was involved with Franciscan Bohemian efforts to stay independent from the Franciscan Austrian province. In 1675 Anthony left the Bohemian province and rejoined the Irish Francisans in Prague, in the friary of the Immaculate Conception. He died five years later, in 1680, during a plague epidemic. Anthony Bruodin wrote several theology manuals, and a variety of other works, including the Propugnaculum catholicae veritatis, which relates 200 Irish Catholic martyrdom stories, and the Descriptio regni Hiberniae sanctorum insulae, et de prima origine miseriarum & motuum in Anglia, Scotia, & Hibernia regnante Carolo primo rege.

Propugnaculum catholicae veritatis (Prague: Typis Universitatis Carolo-Ferd, Collegio Societatis Iesu ad S. Clementem, 1669). A catalogue/martyrology of circa 200 Irish Catholic martyrdoms. Alongside of descriptions of Irish marturs, he included in its fifth book a chapter De Carve seu Carrani erroribus et impostoribus, which confronted the views of the Irish secular priest Thomas Carew's Lyra. This led to a polemic between Anthony and another irish clercyman, Thomas Carve or Carew, who wrote in reply to Anthony Bruodin the Enchiridion Apologeticum Contra Sordidorum Mendaciorum Faraginem RP Antonij Bruodini (Nuremberg, 1670), to which Anthony responded in his Anatomicum Examen Enchiridii Apologettici (1671, see below), which he published under the pseudonym Cornelius O'Mollony, and which again contained accounts of Irish Franciscan martyrs. Carew responded in 1672 with his Responsio Veridica Ad Illotum Libellum Cui Nomen Anatomicum Examen P Antonii Bruodini Hiberni..Sub Ementito Nomine P. Cornelii O Molloni Editum (Sulzbach, 1672).

Antonius de Aretio (Antonio d'Arezzo, d. after 1431)

Lector of theology at Perugia in 1382. He would have been a friend of Poggio Bracciolini and hostile to the friars of the Observance. He might have been the translator of Boccaccio's Decamerone into Latin. But maybe this should be attributed to Antonio d'Arezzo/Antonio di Cipriano Neri (d. 1450). Currently, Carlo Delcorno is working on this question.

 

 

 

 

 

Antonius de Aretio (Antonius Niger/Nerius/Auctive/Antonio di Cipriano Neri, d. 1450)

OMConv & Obs. Italian friar. Probably born in 1380. He received the licence of thelogy at Paris on March 3, 1424 and shortly therafter, on June 28 of the same year the magisterium of theology at the same university [cf. Paris BN Lat. 5657a ff. 16r-19r; Denifle, Chatelain, Chartularium IV (Paris 1897), 428 n. 2234]. Prior to his licentiate at Paris, he was apparently already incorporated in the register of masters in the theology studium of Florence in 1413 [Celestino Piana. La facoltà teologica dell’Università di Firenze nel Quattro e Cinquecento (Grottaferrata, 1977), 284 & 454: “Rev. mag. Antonius de Aretio, Cipriani filius, aulatus fuit Florentae anno Domini 1413, 1 maii, et eadem die uincorporatus”]. After his return from Paris, in 1424, Antonio joined still in the same year the Observance and also became dean/regent lector at the florentine theology studium. He was a renowned preacher.

Antonius de Atri (Antonio d’Atri, fl. early 16th cent.)

Italian friar and guardian of the Jerusalem convent. During this charge, Antonio produced his Exercitio spirituale, which subsequently was printed in Venice (1514) and Urbino (1536). This work, shaped as a series of metrified meditations in the Italian vernacular on the life and death of Christ, focusing on the themes of creation, heavenly governance, redemption and glorification. Each of these exercises end with a veritable colloquium between the human soul and God and aim at instilling in the former a profound divine love.

Antonius de Bitonto (c. 1385-1465), beatus

OFMObs. Famous preacher. Born in Bitonto as member of the Scaraggi family. Probably educated by the Franciscan friars if Bitonto. Joined the Observants at an early age. Quickly renowned for his theological knowledge and preaching skills. Taught theology in Ferrara (c. 1435?), Bologna (1448) and Mantua (1449). Attested preaching activities in Gubbio (1436), San Petronio (Bologna, 1442 and 1449), Lecce (1443), Naples (1444), Florence (1446 and 1450), Rome (1453), Aquila (1453), and Milan (1455), where he was repeatedly asked to return by the Sforzas. Preached the crusade against the Turcs in 1454-1456 on request of the pope. Preached subsequently in Ragusa (1459), and in Cremona and Pavia (1463), notwithstanding increasing problems with his health. Throughout his long career he held several high administrative posts in the Observant wing (a.o. provincial vicar). He received the title of Doctor in theology by pope Nicholas V on the basis of his Sentences commentary. Between 1443 and 1444 Anthony got involved with two major disputes, repectively with the Dominicans on the way to receive the Easter communion (a conflict in which Anthony received support from John of Capistran and the Papal curia), and with Lorenzo Valla on the origin of the Credo. Spent his last years in the Atella friary, where he was famous for his sanctity, his mystical visions and his thaumaturgical powers. Past bibliographers (such as Wadding and Sbaralea) attributed several of Anthony of Bitonto’s works to Antonio da Matelica (notably his Sermones Domenicales, his Sentences commentary, his Summa Casuum (Speculum Animae), and the Quaestiones in epistolas et evangelia quadragesimalia cum postilla Nicolai Lyrani]

Antonius de Guevara (1480-1545)

OMObs/OFM. Probably born in Treceño (Santander, Cantabria province) as son of Beltrán de Guevara and Elvira de Noreña y Calderón. Was sent by his parents to the Castilian court of Isabella I at the age of 12. Lived the life of a courtier but got disenchanted with the lifestyle. In 1505, he took the Franciscan habit in the Valladolid convent. Fulfilled several administrative functions in the order (a.o. guardian of the Arévalo, Avila, and the Soria (1518) convents). In November 1520, he was elected definitor for his Concepción province. Thanks to his loyalty to the crown and Charles V in particular during the 1520 revolt of Segovia, Avila, Medina and Valladolid, and his mediatory efforts, he was appointed court preacher and court historiographer. Antonio also accompanied emperor Charles V on his trip to England (1522). By 1523, Antonio was also custos within the Concepción province, in which function he attended the general chapter of Burgos. Between this year and 1525, he again accompanied Charles V on several journeys. In 1525, he was appointed in a committee overseeing the conversion of the Moriscos in Valencia. After the final suppression of Morisco resistance (1526), Antonio received a royal appointment in yet another committee overseeing Morisco-Christian relations. Early 1527, Antonio became official chronicler of Charles V (the resulting chronicles of which appointment do not seem to have survived), and on 27 June 1527 he became member of the committee that was to survey the works of Erasmus. During this period, Antonio started to publish the first of his works, and revealed himself as both a humanist and an anti-erasmian theologian (Cf. AIA 6 (1946), 263-268). On 7 January 1528, Antonio was appointed with royal support to the episcopal see of Guadix, which he was able to occupy the year after. In between his new episcopal duties and his committee work, Antonio accompanied Charles V on several military expeditions and journeys (Tunis, 1535; Naples and Rome, 1536 (where Antonio took part in orchestrated ‘disputations’ with the Jews). In 1537, after his return to Spain, Antonio was transferred to the diocese of Mondoñedo (of which he took possesion early March 1538). The remaining years of his life, Antonio was active as bishop in Mondoñedo, undertaking a series of pastoral visitations to the various regions of his diocese, organising a provincial synod, and publishing its constitutions (1541). During this period, he continued to write and publish. In his manifold works, he revealed himself as religious humanist with many different interests. Several of his writings (especially his more secular works) became very popular throughout Europe.

editions

Libro áureo de Marco Aurelio (Sevilla, 1528). Also edited in Antonio de Guevara, Obras Completas, ed. Emilio Blanco, 2 Vols. (Madrid, 1994), Vol. I. This is probably the first version of the Reloj de príncipes that Antonio found unfit for publication.

Reloj de príncipes/Libro llamado Relox de príncipes & Libro áureo de Marco Aurelio (Valladolid, 1529).  They both can also be found in Antonio de Guevara, Obras Completas, ed. Emilio Blanco, 2 Vols. (Madrid, 1994), Vol. II. [This combined work was very well received, and translated in German, Hungarian, English, Dutch, Armenian, Italian, Latin, Polish, and French. This work, according to its author, the fruit of eleven years' labour, is a didactic novel, designed, after the manner of Xenophon's Cyropaedia. The work gave rise to a great literary controversy, based on the fictitious statement by Antonio that it was an original classical work, referring to an imaginary manuscript in Florence]

Una década de Césareses a saber: Las vidas de diez emperadores romanos que imperaron en los tiempos del buen Marco Aurelio (Valladolid, 1539).  Also edited in Antonio de Guevara, Obras Completas, ed. Emilio Blanco, 2 Vols. (Madrid, 1994), Vol. I. [This biography of Roman emperors was also translated into French and English.]

Cartas familiares/Epístolas familiares, 2 Vols. (Valladolid-Saragossa, 1539-1545); Antonio de Guevara, Epístolas familiares, ed. José María de Cossio, 2 Vols. (Madrid, 1950-1952). [Several translations followed. The most well-known are Les epistres dorées, trans. M. de Guterry (Lyon, 1556) and Épîtres dorées et discours salutaires, trad. Jean de Barnaud (Paris: Robert le Fizelier, 1584).]

De los inventores del arte de marear (Valladolid, 1539/Madrid, 1895) [Several translations into English and French…]

Aviso de privados y doctrina de cortesanos (Valladolid, 1539). [Many translations…] See also: Le Réveille-matin des courtisans ou moyens légitimes pour pervenir à la faveur et pour s’y maintenir. Édition bilingue espagnol-français, introd., ed.  & trans. Nathalie Peyrebonne, Textes de la Renaissance, Sources espagnoles (Paris, 1999). It is a work on being a courtesan and how to behave at court. Work eventually even important for Norbert Elias's The Court Society. Antonio no doubt was influenced by Baldassarre Castiglione's Il Cortegiano (1518). yet whereas Castiglione's work merely dealt with behavior, Antonio de Guevara described the practical aspects of men surrounding a monarch and made comparisons betwen he courtly life and that of people in the religious life, to enhance the differences.

Arte de marear, edited in: Antonio de Guevara, Menosprecio de corte y alabanza de aldea & Arte de marear, ed. Asunción Rallo Gruss (Madrid, 1984).

El Monte Calvario, 2 Vols. (Salamanca, 1542). The individual volumes sometimes have also been published independently (the second volume also under the title Las siete palabras). The first edition of the first volume might go back as early as 1529. Yet the two volume issue of 1542 is the first surviving complete edition. [The first volume is a treatment, in 58 chapters, of Christ’s passion, citing heavily from Scripture and the Church fathers. Not much direct borrowings from late medieval Franciscan passion treatises in the pseudo-Bonaventurean tradition. La siete palabras, which also contains a prologue written by an unknown Franciscan friar, is a commentary of all the words of Christ spoken during his earthy existence, with an emphasis on the words spoken on the cross. Aside from the Church fathers, Antonio borrows much from the first and third Abécedario of Francisco de Osuna.]

Oratorio de religiosos y ejercicio de virtuosos (Valladolid, 1542). It was re-edited in: Misticos Franciscanos Españoles Tomo II, Biblioteca Autores Cristianos (Madrid, 1948), 445-761. [In introduction to the 1948 edition, on p. 447 we can read: ‘El Oratorio y ejercicio es una obra orientada a la instruccíon de religiosos y seglares que desean vivir santamente. Fué muy leída y estimada en el siglo XVI. Fué muchas veces impresa (1542, 1570, 1574; en Italia, 1567 y 1605; en Francia, 1578)’ Other French editions of his works include: Épîtres dorées et discours salutaires, trad. Jean de Barnaud (Paris: Robert le Fizelier, 1584). The work contains 56 chapters. It is nothing but a manual for living a religious life, meant to guide novices and other beginners. Aside from general advice and introductory remarks (chapters 1-5), Antonio deals with the qualities and obligations of novices and novice masters (chapters 6-8), the virtues that novices have to internalise (chapters 9-14), the tasks and responsibilities of the novice master (chapters 15-18), remarks on the sins of language, the magnificence of the religious life, corporal mortification, the way to celebrate Divine Office, the character and modes of prayer, and the monastic vows (chapters 19-51) Cf. M. de Castro, DSpir VI, 1125. The work draws heavily from other works of Antonio. Interestingly enough, he does not cite many medieval and Franciscan authors. Aside from Bonaventure, no other Franciscan friar is mentioned. Although references to Anselm, Bernard of Clairvaux, and Hugh of St. Victor do appear, Antonio predominantly uses Scripture, classical authors (esp. Seneca), and Greek and Latin Church fathers.]

Obras completas (Valladolid, 1539/Madrid, 1782-1783). [Containing Una década de Césares, Aviso de privados y doctrina de cortesanos, Menosprecio de corte, De los inventores del arte de marear, and the first part of the Cartas familiares]

Obras Completas, ed. Emilio Blanco, 2 Vols. (Madrid, 1994). [Containing the Libro áureo de Marco Aurelio; Década de Césares; Relox de Príncipes]

Antonius de Jaboatao (Antonio de Santa Maria/de Jaboatão, 1695-1779)

OFM. Brasilian friar from Santo Amaro de Jaboatão (Recife area) as the son of the military officer Domingo Coelho de Maireles. Receieved an  intial Latin education by his oncle, the vicar of Santo Amaro de Jaboatão. Thereafter, Antonio had a youthful literary career, becoming a celebrated poet at the Academia dos Esquecidos of Bahia. At the age of 22, he entered the Franciscan order at the Santo António de Parguaçu friary (Bahia). He made his profession on 12 December 1717, continuing his studies in his friary. In 1725, he was ordained priest and sent to Olinda, with a view of becoming a preacher. Aside from a three-year stint as novice master at Igaraçu, and two terms as guardian (elected in this function in 1741 and 1754 in the Paraiba friary), he spent nearly three decades as a preacher. Between December 1752 and June 1754, he was the secretary of the provincial minister. Again in December of the following year, the province asked him to write the history of his order province in Brazil. Working from the Bahia friary, but engaging in several trips to find information, he was able to write in two years the first volume of his Orbe Seráfico, Nuova Brasilia, which was printed in Lisbon in 1761. A second volume was finished in 1764, but was never printed during Antonio’s lifetime (only issued in 1862). He also continued to write poetry and established the Academía dos Renascidos. Several of his poetic works and a number of his sermons were published as well. Others never reached the printing press.

Antonius de Matelice (Antonio da Matelica della Marca, d. after 1535)

OmConv of the province of Ancona. Preacher. Entered the order early in life and apparently received a thorough theological education. Took part in the provincial chapter of Senigallia (1535) as magister (sacrae paginae) Antonio from the Pioraco convent (Macerata), who at that time was ‘capellanus monialium S. Anatoliae.’ His works are often mixed up with those of Antonius de Bitonto. Most works ascribed to Matelice by Wadding and Sbaralea should probably be assigned to Antonio da Bitonto. Antonio da Matelica did in any case compose an interesting Expositio Orationis Dominicae, as well as an Opus de Triplici Mundo (about which nothing more is known).

manuscripts/editions

Expositio orationis dominicae a sacrae theologiae professore magistro Antonio ex oppido Mathelicae nuncupato (Parma: Francesco de Prato, 1535. [this edition also contains in an appendix an Oratio contra novam pessimam haeresim noviter repertam and an Epistula ad Paulum III summam pontificem. Reaching back to an (apocryphical) Paraphrasis Orationis Dominicae of Francis of Assisi, Antonio da Matelica choses not to give a full-blown scholastic treatment of the Pater Noster, but opts instead for an allegorical and mystical interpretation according to the ‘cordes psalteriorum,’ Christ, the true ‘psalter,’ brings out in the ten demands of his Pater Noster prayer the sound of each chord, corresponding with ten commandments. Christ crucified is also compared with the peg that makes the chords sound correctly. This allegorical and mystical set-up is followed by more theological questions, dealing for instance with ‘De servitute peccati in statu innocentiae quoad naturam; De creatura mutabili; De amore filiorum Dei transformante amantem in amatum.’]

In Divini Dyonisii Misticam Theologiam Clarissima Commentaria (Bologna: Hieronymus de Benedictis, 1522)

Sursum Corda Many volumes (Bologna: Hieronymus de Benedictis, 1522-1529) [Amounts to an allegorical use of OT texts to build a narrative on the Christian spiritual life. It consists of three main treatises, namely the Directorium Inflammandi Mentis in Abissum Divini Luminis per Sacrarum Scripturarum Celitus Sensus Reseratos et Unguem Materiae Applicatos (Bologna, 1522), the Tropheum Israeliticum Triregium Mysticam Vitiorum Stragem Significans (Bologna, 1526-1529; books 2-4 were prepared for edition after Antonio’s death by Archangelus de Piacenza), and the Tropheum Israeliticum Quadriregium (the manuscripts were prepared for publication by Archangelus de Piacenzas, yet the general chapter did not give permission). The Directorium Inflammandi Mentis narrates in four books the preparation of man’s spiritual journey from the departure from Egypt, through the passage of the Red Sea, and the progress through the desert of contemplation, to the participation in the Eucharist and the life of virtue. The Tropheum Israeliticum Triregium deals again in four books with man’s mystical combat, and the struggle wth the vices of superbia (represented by Lucifer and the Egyptian Pharao), luxuria (represented by Asmodeus and the Amalacites), and acedia (represented by Behemoth and Edom). The Tropheum Israeliticum Quadriregium apparently is lost, but would have dealt in five books with avaritia and gluttony, ira, scandal, and bad examples, again represented with the help of old-tstamental allegories.]

Paul Spilsbury (Padua: Ed. Messaggero, 2009-2010). With his quadragesimal sermons, Anthony of Padua showed himself to be an innovative preacher, in that he presented, as one of the first, a complete cycle of daily sermons for the Eastern period, therewith supporting the communion and confession message of the Fourth Lateran Council. Cf. C. Gasparotto, ‘La grande missione antoniana a Padova nella quaresima 1231’, Il Santo, New Series 4 (1964), 127-152 & V. Gamboso, Vita Prima o ‘Assidua’, Fonti agiografiche antoniane I (Padua, 1981), 326-335.  In Anthony’s case, the categistic aspect of his preaching, enticing people to confession and shed their sins, went hand in hand with a more encompassing pacification of Padua, replete with a revision of the communal statutes. Roberto Rusconi, ‘La predicazione minoritica in Europa nei secoli XIII-XV’, in: Francesco, Il Francescanesimo e la cultura della nuova Europa, ed. Ignazio Baldelli & Angiola Maria Romanini (Florence, 1986): ‘È la prima manifestazione, da parte minoritica, del crescente intervento dei frati mendicanti nella vita sociale, sia pure con modalità proprie: ne costituirà uno sviluppo su grande scala la devozione dell’Alleluja nel 1233.’

Antonius da Pinerolo (fl. first half 16th cent.)

OFMCap. Preacher and spiritual author. Known for his Dialogo del maestro e del discepolo., a catechism in dialogue format [The capuchins had a predilection for the dialogue format].

editions

there are three different editions of the Dialogo, namely as the Instruttione del vivere christiano secondo le Sagre Scritture e i Santi Padri (Genoa, 1538/1539)), the Dialogo dil Maestro e Discepolo. Molto utile alli Padri di fameglia et alli Maestri di scuola. De uno devoto servo di Christo del Ordine de’ frati Cappucini (Asti, 1540); Dyalogo del Maestro e del Discepolo, del devoto servo di Christo Frate Antonio da Pinarolo, dell’Ordine de’Frati Minori detti Cappuccini (Florence, 1543). There have been attempts to ascribe this catechism to Bernardino Ochino, notably by Ugo Rozzo, ‘Antonio d Pinerolo e Bernardino Ochino’, Rivista di storia e letteratura religiosa 19 (1982), 341-364. The Dialogo ascribed to Antonio da Pinerolo places the responsibility of catechistic instruction of children in the hands of the parents (the father!) and comparable authority figures (such as the rettori di scuola). They have to teach and interrogate the children at least two times each week. This points towards the catechistic grid put in place after Trente. The whole thing is a dialogue, in which the mster askes questions, and the disciple gives the doctrinally safe/correct answer. The first question is: ‘Che persona è il cristiano?’ Thereafter: which has the christian to do and to evade according to the ten commandments, what are the requirements connected with the love of God and the obligations of charity, etc. Followed by other catechisticc pieces. Made clear that perseverance in the christian life is dependent upon continual prayer (gives leeway to a discourse on how the Pater Noster is the cornerstone of the Christian life of prayer) and on proper penitence and confession, followed by partaking in the sacrament of the Eucharist, which is the shortest way to Christian perfection and a spiritual union with the Divine.

Antonius de Radomsko (Antoni z Radomsko/Marcin, fl. late 15th cent.)

Polish Observant friar. He studied liberal arts at the universuty of Cracow between 1454 and 1458 (bachelor degree), and subsequently obtained a magister artium degree in Paris. After his return to Poland he became first a regular canon and later joined the Observant Franciscans (ca. 1480). He continued to teach at Cracow and also studied theology. In 1485–1486, he appears as a theologian in the company of Zbigniew Olesnicki, bishop of Cracow, participating in synodal meetings and preaching. He might have died in Cracow in 1487 on the day of Feast of the Stigmata of St. Francis. But some sources mention 1484 as the year of his death, which raises questions about his later career. He was apparently the author of an ars memoriae treatise - not unlike several other Polish Observant friars from the same generation - that has not survived.

In the prologue to the work, Anthony made clear: ‘Et licet quadragesimale istud non sit tante excellentie sicut forte liceret: respectu ornatus: quia rudi latino et inculto sermone utor. Et respectu sententiarum: quia respectu ornatus non sum professus talem artem et doctrinam [i.e. artem rhetoricam], sed magis legem sacri Evangelii et sanctissime charitatis que legi Tuliane.’]

These sermons, which betray Anthony’s wide readings in theology and law, have a strong catechistic character. Schaefer (1943), 261ff provides the rubrics, the incipits and explicits of the 61 sermons in MS Roma, Casanatensis 157R. The rubrics in themselves already give a good inkling of their subject matter: Feliciter incipit.

Antonius de Villanova (Antonio de Villanueva, 1714-1785)

Franciscan painter and architect. Born in Lorca (Murcia, Spain). Displayed drawing and painting talents at an early age. Following artistic instruction in his parental home, in part by his father, the sculptor Laureano Villanueva, additional schooling and an initial artistic career, he entered the Observant Franciscans in the San Francisco de Valencia friary in 1753, at the age of 45. He was ordained priest and subsequently became a much in demand painter within his order. He completed a number of works for the San Francisco friary of Valencia, and for the friaries of Ontinyent, Alicante, Orihuela, Hellín and Requena, as well as for third order houses. A number of these work can now be seen in the provincial museum of Valencia and other art collections. He also engaged as an architect, traces of which can be found in the Santa Mariá de Jesús convent of Valencia, and elsewhere. In 1768, he was honored by the Valencian Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Carlos. He died in Valencia on 27 November 1785.

Antonius Ferreus (Antonio Ferrer, 1572-1644)

OFMDisc. Friar of the San Juan Bautista province (Valencia); popular preacher. Born in Valencia in 1572 in a fishermen family somehow distantly related to the famous late fourteenth-century Dominican saint Vicente Ferrer. Antonio was able to study grammar and philosophy at the University Literaria of Valencia and joined the Franciscans at the age of 22 on November 8, 1592 in the San Juan de la Ribera friary of the Franciscanos descalzos in Valencia. Following his profession, he followed theological studies and was appointed lector of theology. Subsequently, he fulfilled several administrative charges (guardianships, provincial definitor), culminating in his appointment as provincial minister of the OFMDisc province of San Juan Bautista de Valencia (1635-1638). He also took part in the Franciscan general chapter of Rome (1639). Antonio was foremost known as a preacher and popular urban and rural missionary in the Valencia region. He died in the Valencian San Juan de la Ribera friary on June 28, 1644.

Antonius Lieurin (fl. 17th cent.)

OFMObs & OFMRif. Born in Amiens. Like his older brother Bonaventure, Antoine Lieurin entered the Observants in the St. Louis province (Provence), yet transferred to Rome, where they joined the strict observance of the Riformati.  Both Antoine and Bonaventure then joined the Provecal Recollect St. Bernardin province. Bonaventure quickly became actively involved in the mission against Protestantism. Bonaventure died during the siege of Privas, whilst acting as the confessor of the French Royal army. Yet Antoine first became definitor of St.-Louis (1639) and thereafter curstos of the Recollect custody within the St. Louis province. Therafter, he too embarked on a missionary career, which in his case lasted 20 years (between ca. 1648 and 1668). He organised a missionary network in areas in France where Protestantism was still dominant, coordinating the activities of Observants, Capuchins, Conventuals and others, and securing the backing of bishops and of important families within the Protestant areas.

Antonius Margil de Jesu (Antonio Margil de Jesús, 1657- 1726)

Spanish friar from Valencia. Born on 1657. He took the habit in the Valencia friary in 1673. Studied theology and sacred Scripture and traveled to New Spain in 1683 with a group of friars and helped to found.the Colegio de la Santa Cruz in Querétaro. In 1684, Antonio and Melchor López went to the Guatemala region. Antonio worked as a missionary among non-Christian indigenous people until he was recalled to Querétaro (Zacatecas) in 1687, to become guardian. In 1701, he went back to Guatemala, to help create the Colegio de Cristo Crucificado. He became guardian there in 1702. Between 1703 and 1706, he undertook missionary expeditions, and in 1707, he was asked to establish and lead the Guadelupe college at Zacatecas. While fulfilling this post, he continued to engage in missionary exploits to the north in the 1710s and the early 1720s, traveling as far as the Eastern parts of Texas. He died in the San Francisco friary of Mexico city on August 6, 1726. His beatification process was started on July 19, 1769, and the first step towards his official beatification was made by Pope Gregory XVI on July 31, 1836.

Antonius Maria Affaitati (Antonio Maria Affaitati/Casimir Affaitati, 1660-1721)

OFMCap. Italian friar from Albogasio. Son of a noble family (with roots in Cremona). Entered the Capuchin order at the age of 16 in the Milan province, changing his name to Antonio Maria. His intelligence and rhetorical skills seemed to predetermine him for a homiletic career, yet his health did not allow to pursue this path. In stead, he became an esteemed confessor and a librarian/scholar, spening much of his time in the order’s archives and libraries (notably in and near Milan). This resulted into a number of historical, catechetical and penitential works. Antonio also produced cartographical works and worked in the garden of his friary. He even had a work on gardening published under his secular name. He died at Milan on 27 April 1721.

Antonius Maria Schyrlaeus (Anton Maria Schyrlaeus de Rheita/Schyrl/Schyrle/Reutte/Schyrleus, 1597-1659)

OFMCap. Scientist. Probably born in Reutte, Austria. He joined the Augustinian order in 1622 and after his novitiate was sent to Ingolstadt, where he followed lectures in astronomy and became acquainted with the craft of lens grinding. After he finished his university education, he did not return to his Augustinian convent but joined the Capuchins at Rheita. This order gave him a teaching assignment in a philosophy studium in Linz (1636). In Linz, he attracts the attention of the Prince-Elector (Kurfürst) Philipp Christoph von Sötern, the Archbishop of Trier and Speyer, but kept captive by Emperor Ferdinand III. On behalf of the Archbishop, Antonius contacts Pope Urban VIII. The Emperor saw this as treason and banned Antonius Schyrlaeus from his territies by 1641. Following this, Antonius could be found as philosophy professor in Trier and later, in 1642, in Cologne, where he was engaged in astronomical and optical obervations. In 1643, he published his work Novem stellae circa Jovem visae, circa Saturnum sex, circa Martem nonnullae, followed in 1645 by the Oculus Enoch et Eliae, siue, Radius sidereomysticus, which proved to be a rather influential study on optics and astronomy, also because it describes one of Antonius's inventions, namely an eyepiece for a Keplerian telescope, which left the image reverted, contained a discussion of binocular telescopes, which had an impact on future generations telescope-makers and opticians, and included a rather detailed (inverted) moon chart. Although this chart and separate large moon chart published by him in 1647 would be superseded by other maps, such as those by Hevelius and the Jesuits Giovanni Battista Riccioli and Francesco Maria Grimaldi, his way of depicting and indicating details made school. Schyrlaeus took a stance against Copernicanism and he also speculated about extraterrestial life. He supposedly introduced technical terms as ocular and objective (as used in optics). The lunar crater Rheita and the lunar valley Vallis Rheita are named after him.

Antonius Sobrinus (Antonio Sobrino, 1556 - d. 1622)

OFMDisc. Friar from Salamanca. Prominent member of the San José y San Juan Bautista province, mystical author. He was born in Salamanca in a noble family. He studied liberal arts in Valladolid and at a relatively young age he entered in service of the Secretaría de Cámera of King Philip II. At the age of 22, he joined the Franciscans in the San Bernardino friary (Madrid). He went up for the priesthood and was ordained in 1585. In 1597, he was visitator of the discalceate San Juan Bautista province. He subsequently joined that province and fulfilled several administrative charges (guardian, provincial commissioner, provincial definitor and finally provincial minister (1612-1615). He apparently took part in the general chapter of Rome in 1612. Antonio was an esteemed court preacher at the court of Philip III, with whom he seemingly had cordial relations and for whom he acted also as a counselor in matters of doctrine. Antonio promoted the immaculate conception of Mary and for about nine years he was the spiritual director of the priest Francisco Jerónimo Simó, who was suspected by the Inquisition of quietist tendencies. Antonio died in the San Juan de la Ribera friary of Valencia on July 10, 1622. Apparently, King Philip IV wrote to Pope Urban VIII in 1624 to entice him to open a beatification process. Antonio wrote a number of homiletic, mystical and spiritual works, which had a considerable success during the seventeenth century.

Antonius Trombetta (1436-1517)

Scotist theologian and philosopher. He was promoted doctor in theology on 2 July, 1467, regent of the internal school of metaphysics in Padua in 1469, teaching in two vacant urban chairs of theology in 1471, regent of the theology school of the Studio del Santo in 1475, and accepted to the public chair of metaphycics ‘in via Scoti’ at the university in 1476, a post he kept until 1511, when he was elected bishop of Urbino by pope Julius II and called to the Fifth Lateran Council. According to the 2014 article of Poppi, a newly discovered document shows that, in actual fact, Trombetta was already asked to teach scotist metaphysics in December 1473, and this caused a number of formal/legal issues: this early invitation was therefore rescinded son after, and Trombetta’s position as public teacher of metaphysics only fully regulated in 1476

Archangelus de Aberdonia (Archangel of Aberdeen/Georg Leslie. d. 1637)

OFMCap from Scotland. Born in an afluent Aberdeen family sometime in the second half of the sixteenth century. He was sent to Paris for study purposes, converted to Catholicism and opted for the priesthood. At first, he followed theology courses at the Scottish college at Rome. Yet a meeting with Ange de Joyeuse made him opt for the Capuchin order around 1608, adopting the order name Archangel himself. He travelled to the Marches of Ancona and then stayed in Bologna, where he worked with exiles from Scotland and with English and Irish people willing to convent. In 1623, shortly after the foundation of the Congregatio de Propaganda Fidei, he obtained permission to travel as a missionary/pastor to Scotland, where he worked with Catholics and made some converts among the local nobility. He was forced to go back to Italy, both due to persecution and because of accusations of misbehavior leveled against him. Another reason might have been that the newly appointed organiser of Capuchin missions to England and Scotland, Joseph Leclerc du Tremblay, wished to rely on French missionaries. On his way to Rome, Archangel received official approval for his missionary work in Scotland. He assisted plague victims at Cremona in 1630 and he was appointed guardian of the Capuchin friary of Montegiorgio in the Marches of Ancona (1631/1634/5?). Near the end of his life, he received permission to return to Scotland, where he died in 1637. He became the subject of a biography by the Italian priest and archbishop Giovanni Battista Rinuccini, based on interviews with Archangel during his stay in the Marches of Ancona.

Arnoldus Meerman (Mermannius/Mermans/Alostanus, ca. 1530-1578)

OFM from Aalsty. Entered the pedagogium De Valk in Louvain for his artes studies on August 30, 1546 and became magister artium as third of his year on March 21, 1549. He entered the Friars Minor and began his ordination trajectory. In December 1552, when he was ordained deacon, he lived in Louvain. The year after, when he was ordained priest (May 1553), he lived in the Franciscan friary of Brussels. Between this period and the early 1560s, he had also more or less completed his theology studies, for in 1563 he was lector in the Franciscan studium theologicum of Louvain. In 1565, he was definitor for his province and in that capacity he participated in the General chapter of Valladolid in 1565. Later that year he had become guardian in Mechelen (Malines), a position that he kept until 1568. That year he became for three years guardian in Louvain (1568-1570) and maybe he was afterwards appointed to the same position in Dordrecht. Whether or not he was guardian in Dordrecht, he did not serve for three years, for between 1572 and 1576 he was back in Malines, with intermittent stays in Antwerp (maybe cut short by a banishment after the temporary Protestant takeover of the town in November 1576), to die in Louvain on September 5, 1578. Mermans was a known polemicist against the Protestant reformation and a productive albeit somewhat peculiar Catholic catechetical author. During his guardianship of Mechelen, he experienced the Iconoclastic Fury of 1566, when Mermans needed to flee, as the Protestants apparently tried to kill him for his staunch opposition to Protestantism. Most of his works were written in Latin and his works are rather long and sometimes a bit convoluted. Later in life, in part in the context of the Iconoclast Fury, he also wrote a few texts in the Dutch vernacular.
