Halle (‘Der von Halle’, c. 1400)

Friar from Halle (Saxony province), possibly also active in the Strasbourg region. Known for several sermon extracts. In some of these, he elaborates on the four last things (death, last judgment, hell, and heavenly beatitude). In another, he speaks about the four winds sent by the Holy Spirit; a theme we can also find in Bonaventure’s Soliloquium. Other excerpts contain more phantastical stories.

Hartung (Hartwich/Heinrich) Erfurdensis (first half fourteenth century)

German friar. There is still some discussion as to whether or not he was a Franciscan. Preached ca. 1320-40 in the region of Erfurt. A fair amount of his German Postillen (predominantly (model) sermons for the sundays and feast days (Sermones de T & de S) of the liturgical year, deriving most frequently their theme from the epistles and the gospels read on these occasions), Tractatus (sermons organised more loosely, often directed to several main themes of moral or doctrinal import) and Plenarien (sermons that can almost be described as lengthy glosses to liturgical pericopes) have survived under the name Hartung, Hartwig, Henri and Hartwaig. (For the ascription of some of these collections, there might be a confusion with Henry of Erfurt (OP)) In some sermons, Hartung expresively shows himself as a Franciscan with spiritual inclinations, and a supporter of Louis of Bavaria, although he does not want to speak against the Pope. The sermons contain strong denunciations of power abuse and opulence of the clergy, as well as mystical elements (Some scholars suspect influence by Eckhart, yet not everything dealing with the presence of God in the soul of man is immediately derivative of Eckhart). Maybe Hartung is also the author of a treatise on dreaming and sleeping. Hartung’s or Hartwich’s sermon manuscripts have a wide and intricate reception history (as model sermon collections, communal and private reading texts, meditation books etc (see Mertens, 1978, 1981, 1984).

Haymo de Faversham († 1243/44, Anagni) 

English friar. Born in Kent. Was already a famous magister in Paris (`Aristotelissimus', `totius speculum honestatis magnusque theologus') and a preacher of renown when he entered the Franciscan order in St.-Denis at the instigation of Jordan of Saxony (general master of the Dominicans!). Received the habit on Good Friday 1225. Thereafter, between 1225-1230 and around 1235-1239 active as a teacher of the Order in Oxford, Tours, Bologna, Padua (and probably Paris). Ca. 1230 custos of Paris. Took part in the 1230 general chapter of Assisi, and one of the members of the delegation that asked pope Gregory IX for a declaration on the rule (resulting in Quo Elongati, 28 September 1230). In 1233, he was papal legate at Nicea (Byzantine empire). After 1237, Haymo became one of the more active critics of Elias of Cortona. In 1238, he was a driving force within the delegation that vocalised a number of complaints against Elias before pope Gregory IX in Rome. By 1239, when Haymo was already provincial minister of England, the complaints and Elias’ reactions caused the pope to depose Elias at the general chapter (Pentecost, 15 May 1239). Albert of Pisa was elected in his place. When Albert died on 23 January 1240, Haymo was elected minister general of the order on 1, 11, 1240. In his new position, Haymo took action against supporters of Elias (such as Gregory of Naples) and made several visitationary journeys. Stimulated the publication of the Expositio Regulae Quattuor magistrorum, and excluded lay brothers from high offices in the order. On papal request/request of the order he revised and ordered the missal and the breviarium of the order, therewith producing the missal and the breviary which became the standard in the Roman Church up till Trente and beyond.

Helwicus Magdeburgensis (Helwicus von Magdeburg/Helwich von Magdeburg, d. 28 Sept. 1252)

Successor of Bartholomaeus Anglicus as lector at Magdeburg. There he wrote his Denarius sive Decacordus [a pious autobiography annex praise of God for the ten beneficia that God had granted him (and hopefully would grant him) in this life and in the life to come, namely: predestinatio, nativitas, baptismus, conservatio usque ad annos discretionis, clericatus, confirmatio, religio, sacerdotium, mors bona, vita eterna. Work is reminiscent of Hugh of St. Victor’s Soliloquium de Arrha Animae, and also incorporates various Bonaventurian themes. For a concise analysis see Schlageter (2015)] After his Magdeburg assignment, Helwicus became lector at Erfurt. There he might have written shortly before 1250 a versification of Lombard's Sentences in Latin hexameters, the so-called Lombardus Metricus (to which the fifteenth-century Franciscan lector Johan Röthaw wrote a range of Conclusiones). It is unclear whether the ascription of the Lombardus Metricus is correct. It is confirmed by Doelle (1908) and Stöllinger (1981), but Oliger (1960), Schlageter (2015), among others, express some doubts. Various remarks in the Denarius make clear that Helwicus’ sisters, as well as his father and one of his brothers had also joined the order (the sisters joining the religious life at a very young age, after the death of their mother). His remark ‘Deus meus (…) et doctorem legis tue fecisti me, ut (…) predicatoris officium susciperem’ would imply that he had received the doctorate, but might only indicate that he had studied theology in a more general sense, without obtaining a degree.

Henricus Buschey (Henri Buschey/Bouchey/Henricus a Bastonia, ca. 1533-1599)

Born in Bastenaken (Bastogne) and studied as well-to-do student at Louvain (inscribed in August 1554 in the pedagogium De Valk). Almost immediately after starting his studies, he sought out the Franciscans and he might have started his noviciate as early as 1555. On 18 and 19 December 1556 he is ordained, first as Acolyte and the day after as dubdeacon. Became active as a preacher in Flanders and Brabant. In the years 1578-1587 he lived and preached in Antwerp, then possibly forced to flee during the temporary Protestant takeover. In 1587, he probably is in Brussels (based on a correspondence with the printer Plantin), in the context of the publication of his only known work: a versified French biblical theatre piece that also includes five prayers. Back in Antwerp in 1591, where he is a vicar for his friary between 1591 and 1595 and where he dies on December 31, 1599. He had a good homiletic reputation, and apparently also preached at the Court in Brussels.

editions

Le Mystère de la saincte Incarnation de nostre redempteur & sauveur Iesus-Christ: Par personnages. Accomodé sur certains passages contenus au vieil & nouveau Testament (Antwerp: Christophorus Plantinus, 1587). The werk was dedicated to Joannes Balla, abbot of St. Hubert. It is a theatre piece with a cast of 22 persons (biblical figures and angels), followed by five prose prayers (on pp. 74-116). It is reminiscent of comparable theatre pieces produced by a slightly younger contemporary Friar Minor from the same region, namely Philippe Bosquier.

Henricus de Beaume (Henricus de Balma/Henri de Beaume, ca. 1367-1439), beatus

Born ca. 1367 in Savoie, in a noble family in the service of the Burgundian dukes. Probably entered the order in Chambéry (Savoie) in the Burgundian Franciscan province, after studies in the arts and theology. According to Katherine Rufiné, he lived in the Mirebaeu convent, which became under the influence of the Observance. After 1406, when Henri already had established himself as a prominent itinerant preacher in the French provinces, he became one of the close collaborators and confessors of Colette of Corbie. That year Henri travelled with Colette to the papal court in Nice, where pope Benedict XIII allowed Colette to become a poor Clare and granted her the power to found a reformed female religious community. Henri was made counsellor and collaborator of Colette, with the urgent wish of the pope to assist her throughout. After some abortive attempts to found a reformed community in Picardy, and temporary lodgings the houses of noble supporters in the Franche-Comté (in the castle of La Roche) and Savoie (in the castle of Blanche de Genève), Colette and Henri were able to establish the first reformed house of Poor Clares in Besançon (1408). Thereafter, more houses would follow. Subsequent minister generals of the Franciscan order (Anthony of Massa and Guillaume de Casale), gave Henri the privilege to act as general visitator of the Coletan convents and to act as general vicar of the male Coletan houses in service of the Coletan sisters. After 1429, when Henri’s health deteriorated, he obtained the assistence of Pierre de Vaux. Henri died on 23 February 1439 in the Besançon monastery.

Henri wrote many letters and a range of spiritual treatises for the Coletan sisters, as well as a guide/rule for the friars Coletans who were to assist the female Poor Clares Coletans…. In the past, several spiritual writings of Hugo de Balma and Jacob of Milan have been attributed erroneously to Henri as well [notably Hugo de Balma’s De Triplici Via ad Sapientiam, Jacob of Milan’s Stimulus Amoris, and the Liber Soliloquiorum ad Impetrandam Gratiam et Lacrymas. Cf. AFH 50 (1957), 284.]

After Henri’s death (Besançon, 1439), Colette of Corbie decided to have him buried in the chapter of the female convent of Besançon. Not only to have his bodily remains close to the sisters, but also to prevent a noisy and troublesome cult. She feared that, when his body would be buried in the church, his renown and the miracles on his grave would attract too many people and would interfere with the religious life of the nuns.

Elizabeth Lopez, Revue Mabillon, 5 (1994), 117-141]; and 3. maybe some other translations and devotional works that are typically Coletan, such as the Exhortation de la vie réligieuse, La Passion de N.S. Jésus, translatée par le B.P. Henry de Baulme, l'an 1418 [a sermon of Jean Courtecuisse, translated on request of Isabel of Bavaria, king of France], and the Traité de la vie spirituelle [all these are found in the Recueil de traités spirituels composés ou traduits par le P. Henri de la Balme, Cordelier, confesseur de sainte Colette, Besançon, Bibl.

Statuta Fr. Henrici de Balma, primi Vicarii Colettinorum Monasteriis s. Colettae inservientium, ed. H. Lippens, Sacris Erudiri, 1 (1948), 261-276. Lippens (1948), 259: ‘Les statuts du P. Henry sont loin de se borner à réglementer les actes extérieurs des Colétains. Ils constituent, au contraire, un traité assez complet de vie intérieure et visent à conduire les âmes religieuses à un haut degré de perfection en matière de renoncement, d’oraison et de dévouement pour le prochain. L’ascétisme du P. henry, tout comme celui de Ste Colette, est d’inspiration nettement franciscaine. L’importance accordée à la pratique de la pauvreté, à la tendre charité envers le prochain, à la dévotion affective, au souvenir de la douloureuse passion de Notre-Seigneur, le prouvent abondamment. D’ailleurs l’ensemble de la doctrine énoncée est emprunté aux écrits de S. François…’ Important (260): ‘…les présents règlements ne sont en vérité qu’un supplément aux statuts, qui ordonnaient tout l’ensemble de la vie religieuse du groupe Colétain. Le paragraphe 34 fait d’ailleurs allusion à ces statuts que l’on pourrait appeler généraux.’  These statutes are primordily directed to friars involved with the pastoral care and spiritual counsel of the Colettine sisters. Hence, as Colette took Clara d’Assisi’s 1253 rule as point of departure, Henri starts of with referring to the Clara’s remarks concerning the friars involved with the spiritual care of the nuns: ‘In primis notandum quod secundum formam Regule a beato francisco virgini clare tradite, in quolibet conventu dictarum sororum debent residere regulariter quatuor fratres; videlicet confessor sororum qui vita, moribus, etate matura, religiositate et honestate debet esse preclarus, et in observantia regulari bene probatus. Ipse solus audiat confessiones sororum inclusarum, necnon illarum devotarum que vacant in servitio dictarum religiosarum ab extra. Socius vero eius sit frater sacerdos, predicator et confessor; et confiteantur se mutuo cum expediens fuerit, et sit maturus, honestus, devotus et pacificus; et sit coadiutor fidelis in sibi possibilibus dicto confessari. Et sint pariter cum ipsis duo fratres layci in subsidium sancte paupertatis. Qui quidem debent esse humiles, maturi et devoti, intus et extra exemplares, et cum magna caritate et confidentia debent ire pro elemosina querenda quando requiruntur a sororibus in earum necessitatibus; quia sic fuit voluntas et intentio beati francisci…’ A large part of the statutes thereafter are devoted to the way in which the confessor and his socci have to support the Colettine sisters (administeriing the sacraments (Eucharist and confession), preaching) and how they have to behave and keep up their own spiritual life (in which pssion devotion holds a dominant place) with alacrity, insisting that they ‘…retehirant se ad eorum cellam assinatam post finem completorii sororum, vacando orationi, meditationi, solitudini ac silentio evangelico. Et si eis complacuerit poterunt soluto matutino mutuo se reconciliari. Et eadem hora fratres layci persolvent eorum officium de pater noster, et post vacent diligenter meditationi et sentimentis passionis christi, et notitie sui status ac sue dignissime vocationis, orantes ferventius pro salute vivorum atque mortuorum. In ipsorum refectionibus teneatur communiter salutiferum silentium, et sument beneficia dei cum debita honestate et gratiarum actione. In principio vero mense et in fine regulariter habeatur devota lectio. Et rogo fratres meos quantum possum, quod feria sexta legant Regulam sanctissimam, bene distincte et devote et per integrum; et quod interdum legant sanctum testamentum sanctissimi patris nostri cum magna devotione. Et hoc plurimum in domino exopto, quod hec sanctissima Regula sciatur ab omnibus, et ex singulari devotione fratres deferent, quia pro observatione ipsius certi sumus de vita eterna. Et amore dei vitentur verba noxia et inutilia in mensa et alibi. Et bonum est quod fratres dicant communiter ante benedictionem De profundis et Fidelium pro defunctis. Et post refectionem gratiis domino universorum devotius redditis, fratres occupent se utiliori modo quo poterunt, in studio, oratione aut laboritio, et hoc semper ad honorem dei  et utilitatem boni communis….’ Ibidem, 264-265.

Henricus de Burgeis (Henricus Burgus, fl. c. 1300)

Friar from Tirol. Member of the Bolzano (Bozen) convent in 1310. Between 1301 and 1304, he wrote a long allegorical penitential poem, entitled Der Seele Rat. In this poem, the soul, which is wounded by sin, is healed with the help of four personified virtues/mental states: Dame Contrition, Dame Confession, Dame Penitence, and Dame Fear of God. The poem ends with a trial of Satan. There are some reminiscences of Berthold of Regensburg’s homiletic imagery, yet there seems to be no direct indebtness to the work of the latter. In the course of the poem, Heinrich suggests penitents to seek out ‘einen weisen Seelenrat’ (v. 887), but (in accordance with Boniface VIII’s Super Cathedram) also mentions the obligation to confess once a year to the parish priest. Heinrich emphasises the importance of indulgences and the ways to acquire them. Dörrer (1935) thinks that for his moral and canonist teachings Heinrich was influenced by works like the Summa Poenitentia of Servasantus. Heinrich’s treatment of the soul comes close to the treatment of the soul in the poems De Babilonia Infernali and De Jerusalem Celesti by Giacomino da Verona and  the poetry of Heinrich’s contemporary Bonvesin da Riva (d. 1313) [Cf. Esther Isopel May, The ‘De Jerusalem celesti’ and the ‘De Babionia infernali’ of Fra Giacomino da Verona, Diss. (Florence, 1939).

Henricus de Carreto (Enrico del Carretto, d. before 20 August 1323)

Friar from the Genua province. Bachelor of theology at Paris. Subequent master of theology. Therafter lector at the Bologna Studium (until January 1299). On August 1, 1300, he was appointed bishop of Lucca by Pope Boniface VIII. In Lucca, he held a synod (1308), of which the acts (in 11 articles) have survived. In 1309, political and military problems forced him to leave Tuscany. He settled in Avignon, where he became entangled in the controversy on the usus pauper controversy. Pope Clement V charged him with a clerical mission, aiming to bring disobedient spirituals back into allegiance with their Franciscan superiors (cf. AFH 66 (1973), 331, 343-345). Before July 11, 1318, he and twelve other theologians responded on Papal request to Pope John XXII’s Quorundam Exigit, which had been heavily contested by Franciscan rigorists (cf. AFH 79 (1986), 101-102. Later, he also was asked to give advise on inquisitorial jurisdiction in matters of sorcery. He died before 20 August, 1323 (when the episcopal chapter of Lucca was officially informed about his death), and not in 1330. Aside from his synodal acts, he is known to be the author of Tractatus de Statu Dispensativo Christi et Specialiter de Paupertate Eius et Apostolorum/Tractatus de Statu Dispensativo Christi et Apostolorum, and of a lengthy commentary on the visions of Ezechiel, entitled, De Rotis Ezechielis. This latter work, composed between 1313 and 1315, was dedicated to Pope John XXII. The legal arguments used in the Tractatus de Statu Dispensativo suggest a decent exposure to legal doctrines, which raises questions concerning the place of legal materials in the theology studies of the Franciscan order in the years leading up to the prohibition of legal studies in 1292 (Parisian constitutions).

Henricus de Merseburg (mid thirteenth century)

Franciscan friar and canonist. Probably born in Merseburg. Might have studied canon law and even have obtained a law degree at Paris before his entrance in the Franciscan order (see on this also the 14th. century biography of Henry of Merseburg in Leipzig UB cod. ms. 1074, which suggests that Henricus had given lectures on the liberal arts in Paris, studied natural philosophy and medicine, and had audited six years of lectures on law). In 1250, and again in 1270, he taught at the Franciscan studium of Magdeburg (the first Franciscan studium generale in the German province). Proof of Henry’s teaching activities at the Magdeburg studium is found in his Summa and in various Magdeburg charters). Several charters from 1259 seem to indicate that Henry also taught as lector at the Franciscan studium of Erfurt. He is famous for his Summa super V Libros Decretalium or Summa Titulorum (ca. 1242), one of the first commentaries on the Decretals (Liber extra, 1234) of Gregory IX, composed for internal use in the order’s schools to prepare confessors and other pastoral professionals. Heinrich's work had a substantial success in Northern Germany. Around 1260, a Franciscan lector (probably not the Magdeburg lector Henricus of Barben, who is mentioned in this regard by several scholars) wrote to this work an Apparatus ad summam fratris Heinrici, or an update (incorporating more recent canonist commentaries (in the manuscripts, this work either is found after the Summa, or incorporated in the individual titles). Later, in 1290, Henricus of Barben composed a Casus in Summam Heinrici (a casus conscientiae for penitential use, which added theological as well as canonist materials. Inc.: Labia sacerdotis custodiant scientiam, and was ordered according to specific questions). An updated abbreviated version (Summa Brevis super Decretales, inc.: Fecit Deus duo luminaria magna), which reworked all three previous works into a new whole, appeared in the early fourteenth century. The work was also used by the editor of the German Schwabenspiegel (connected with the Sachsenspiegel of Eike von Repgow).

XI. 149. For more manuscripts, see the studies mentioned below (esp. Kurtscheid (1927), 193ff.). Contrary to the Summae of Raymond of Peñyaforte and Johannes von Freiburg, which are organised in such a way to faculitate confessors, Heinrich von Merseburg’s Summa follows the order of Gregory’s Decretals, providing a concise commentary and elucidation in handbook format for classroom purposes, more in particular geared towards the needs of the order’s theology students. Unnecessary details are left out, as he also makes clear in the proemium: ‘Multo magis eligens pauca ydonee declarare quam legentes multis inutilitatibus pergravare, non proprie seu private sed communi deserviens utitilitati (…) hanc summulam compilavi.’ MS Königsberg 47 f. 3a. More information concerning Heinrich’s objectives can be found in the prologue to the second supplement in MS Leipzig 1013 f. 152a: ‘Ut autem sacerdotibus pateat via ad scienciam iuris canonici, ideo frater Henricus Merseburg de ordine fratrum Minorum, quondam lector in Magdeburg, summulam iuris canonici quam habemus prae manibus communi utilitati deserviens compilavit.’ As such, the Summa, with and without its two supplements, had a great success, specially in the German order provinces. The second supplement was made c. 1290 by the Franciscan lector Heinrich von Barben (who used Heinrich’s Summa in the classroom) with more direct confession purposes and related clerical obligations in mind. Cf. MS Leipzig 1013 f. 152r: ‘Cum summam henrici fratribus legerem et quosdam casus lectioni insererem, quos textus eiusdem summule nom habebat, fratres multimodis precibus ac importunis instanciis me rogarunt, ut eosdem carus verbis brevibus et simplicibus annotarem, quatenus fratres simplices ad planiciem eorundem casuum expediendis penitencium perplexitatibus recurrerent, qui non possent se ac confitentes sibi in latebrosa silva iuris canonici ad liquidum expedire…’

Henricus de Talmheim (Talheim/Henricus de Tailhaim de Bavaria, fl. early 14th century)

Bavarian friar. Baccalaureus and Magister Theologiae at Paris. Guardian of the Ingolstadt convent in 1313. Provincial minister of Upper Germany (1316-1325), and chancellor of emperor Louis the Bavarian. Played a role in the poverty struggle against Pope John XXII on the side of William of Ockham. His probably forced retreat from office as provincial minister in 1326 might relate to this. In later years, he regained the goodwill of the papacy and was able to act as definitor at the General Chapter of Perpignan. None of his theological works (if any) have survived. What did survive were the Allegationes that he composed in collaboration with William of Ockham, Francis de Aesculo and Bonegratia of Bergamo, which denounce heretical pantheïst utterances of Eckhart and Nicolaus of Straßbourg. Interestingly, the so-called Sprüchen der zwölf Meister (MS Straßbourg L. germ. 662 (2795), dating from 1444), contain some sayings with a pantheïstic bearing by ‘Der von Talhain’, which come close to opinions vocalized by Eckhart.

Henricus de Werl (d. 1464)

Born c. 1400 in Werl. Read the Sentences pro exercitio around 1428 (probably in Bologna. This coheres with the production date of one manuscript of his In I Sent.) Studied for a theology degree at the university of Cologne in and after 1430 (matriculated in 1430, to read the Bible in 1430/1431 as Bacc. Biblicus, and the Sentences pro forma magisterii in 1431/2 (together with his fellow friar Walram von Siegburg)). He might have obtained the licence and the magisterium by the end of 1434 or the beginning of 1435 (yet there is no documentation to support this). It is also quite probable that he left the university as Baccalaurus Formatus in 1432. That year he was elected provincial of the Cologne province; a position he kept until 1461. He then could have received the licence by papal bull. He was a renowned preacher, a staunch defender of papalism (which also showed in the context of Heinrich's participation in and positioning at the Council of Basel, where he supported the cause of Eugenius IV and wrote a treatise on papal power in the Church), and a Scotist and immaculist in his mariology. Until 1443, he apparently was on relatively good terms with John Capistran, who propagated the observance during his German preaching tours. As provincial of the Cologne province, Henry at first accepted the many new observant foundations resulting from Capistran’s activities. In the 1450s, however, Henry chose to upheld the conventual cause (bringing the convent of Göttingen back into the conventual fold in 1457). It seems that Henry had sympathy with basic tenets of the observant program, but opposed the administrative autonomy of observant foundations. Henry probably spent his last years in the Osnabrück convent, where he died on the 10th of April, 1464. Several of Henry’s works have survived, namely parts of his Sentences commentary (Book I replete with the Principium (including collatio and quaestio); the collatio of the Principium to Book II; a Quaestio quodlibetaria between the first and second Principium; a distinction on the immaculate conception of Mary pertaining to Book III), the Tractatus seu collectio ex diversis de eminentia potestatis apostolicae super Ecclesiam universalem per totum orbem dispersam et synodaliter congregatam (1441), the Clarificatorium, the Contra impugnantes responsum sanctissimi domini Eugeni divina providentia papae quarti, and his treatise De formalitatibus (On the different kind of distinctions, on the distinctions in the Trinity etc.) in the tradition of Scotus and Francis of Mayronnis. Other philosophical and philosophico-theological writings attested by Wadding and later bibliographers have not been found). His sermons (mentioned by Trithemius and Wadding; a.o. on the suffering of Christ) apparently did not survive.

Henricus de Wildenstein (Heinrich von Wildenstein, ca. 1330 - before 1409)

Bohemian friar. Probably received his higher theological education at the Franciscan studium at Avignon. Developed close connections with the Papal curia at Avignon and (later on) Rome. Preached several times before the Papal court. Was appointed bishop of Croia (Albania) on 5 July 1372 by Pope Gregory XI. Became well-acquainted with Duke Leopold of Austria and Emperor Charles IV. Henry preached in Prague, in the presence of the Emperor, as well as at Vienna University. After the death of emperor Charles IV, Henry gave several of the official funerary sermons (December 1378). In 1383, Duke Leopold of Austria, who apparently had a high opinion of Henry, took effort to make Henry bishop of Trieste. There, Henry got in trouble with the secular clergy of the diocese (esp. on the social-economic management of diocesan affairs). Maybe due to these problems, Henry was transferred again (on 23 December 1396, apparently against his will) to the diocese of Pedena (Istria). Thirteen of Henry’s sermons still survive. They make abundant use of rhymed prose, and contain many references to and direct citations from the Fathers and high medieval monastic authors (esp. Bernard of Clairvaux).

Henricus de Zanten (Henricus Xantis/Hendrik van Santen, d. 1493)

OMObs. Born in the first half of the fifteenth century. Was Guardian of the convent of Mechelen (Malines) in 1487 (as one of the successors of Hendrik Herp) and again in 1493. When, in 1487, the provincial minister Willem van Amersfoort of the Cologne province died in Hendrik van Santen’s convent, Hendrik temporarily took on the obligations of provincial minister, until the general chapter at Gorcum (1488). Hendrik died at Mechelen in 1493, and was buried in the choir of the Franciscan convent church. Hendrik produced several sermon collections, as well as a series of Collacien, in which Hendrik dealt in a sermon format with practical aspects of the mystical life (with recourse to Gerson, Giles of Assisi, Bonaventura, Augustine, Gregorius the Great and Bernard of Clairvaux). [Most details on Hendrik’s life stemm from the Franciscan Archive in St. Truiden M Gi 12 (parts of which can be found in St. Schoutens, Antiquitates Franciscanae Belgicae (Hoogstraeten, 1906), I, 16-18.)]

Die Collacien van den Eerwaerdighen Vader Broeder Henricus van Sancten Gardiaen van Mechelen (Leiden: Jan Severszoon, c. 1500/Antwerp: Hendrik Eckert van Homberch, c. 1500 [two times]) [In 137 pages, this small booklet deals with the contemplative life, and more in particular with those aspects of active life conducive to it. In order to prepare for proper contemplation, one should reform the inner self, fleeing vanity, guarding one’s speech, and exercising daily prayers. Subsequently, it is important to reach out to other people: assisting the poor and the sick, and teaching the illiterate. The work is heavily indebted to De Monte Contemplationis of Gerson and Bonaventure’s Soliloquium. Hendrik’s main audience consists of literate lay people in search of a more fulfilling religious life. Aside from the collacien, the various printed editions also contains ca. five short additional pieces that probably should not be ascribed to Hendrik, but share a comparable religious outlook]

Additional sermon fragments from MS Gent, Universiteitsbibliotheek 895 ff. 289r-291r, edited in: A. Ampe, ‘Naar aanleiding van Hendrik van Santen’s Collacien’, Ons Geestelijk Erf 49 (1975), 376-380. [These fragments comprise the following short texts: i.) Tot god keren in vier manieren; ii.) Hir nae volgen seven punten, die een minsche aen hem hebben sal, die tot eenen inghekeerden leven comen will; iii.) Die meyninghe maect onghelijc werck; iv) Het sijn vier punten, die een minsche hebben moet, die in vergaderinghe vredelijc staen wilt; v.) Drievoudige raad; vi..) Wijze troost voor wie beproefd is. Most of these fragments are very short and apodictic meditatative considerations. The second fragment (Seven punten, die een minsche aen hem hebben sal) is the most developed (ed. Ampe, 377-379): ‘Allen die vanden heilighen geest ghedreven werden tot eenen inghekeerden leven, suelen dese seven punten aen hen hebben. Dat eerste datmen god minnen sal boven al (…) Dat ander punt es, dat sij meer den lof god selen meijnen ende begheren vort te setten in haeren doen ende laeten dan ghelost of gherief (…) Dat deerde punt es willich armoede, niet meer begheeren dan slecht noet. Want het sijn cristus jhesus worde: wilstu volcoemen wesen, soe laet al dattu hebts ende volghe mij nae. Dat vierde es reijnicheit. In een reijn herte wilt god woenen, ende willen wij reijn blijven, soe es ons goeder hoeden noet. Wij sullen dan scuwen stede ende stont persoen. (…) Dat vijfde punt es ghehorsamkeit. Een recht ghehoersam minsche doet gheen sunde. Onder ghehorsaemheit moet der minsche sijn selfs uut-gaen, hem laeten onder eenen vreemden, moet scijnen dwaes, op dat hij voer gode wijs werde. (…) Dat sesde punt dat die minsche sal laeten sijns vaders huijs, troest ende ghenoecht der werelt. Niet wel en machmen gode ende der welt dienen. (…) Dat sevende punt di minsche sal sterven der natueren ende gode alleen leven. Als die natuer sterft, soe wert der geest levende.’

Henricus Dinckelspuel (‘Bruder Heinrich’, fl. 1446)

OFMObs. Friar from Heilbronn. Was already doctor in canon law, when he decided to enter the Cistercians at Maulbronn. Later, he changed to the Franciscan Observance. As a novice, he renounced all his remaining possessions and wrote by means of a public letter a Lob der Armut (1446). The letter bears the seal of the guardian ‘zue Pfortzen.’

Henricus Helmesius (Heinrich Helm/Henricus Germipolitanus, d. c. 1560)

OFMObs. German friar. Probably born in Halberstadt. Entered the Franciscan order in the Cologne province. For a time, he was active there as preacher (also in Cologne cathedral). Transferred to the Franciscan province of Saxony, to become an active member of the Halberstadt convent. On request of Adolf von Schaumburg (future archbishop of Cologne), Heinrich transferred to Stadthagen, where he became guardian of the Observant convent. In 1545, he became provincial minister of Saxony. During this period, he took several initiatives to enhance religious discipline in the remaining Franciscan houses (the number of which dropped to 11 in 1554 and 7 in 1559). On Heinrich’s request, Emperor Charles V ordered the town of Halberstadt to return to the Franciscans their confiscated convent (1548). Heinrich also became active as counsellor of Duke Heinrich II von Brunswick, during the latter’s recatholisation of his lands. Heinrich Helm had a good reputation as preacher and anti-protestant polemicist. Adolf von Schaumburg recommended Heinrich’s sermons as models to his own diocesan clergy. Heinrich’s main sermon collections have been published during his lifetime and thereafter. Besides, several of his other theological and polemical works have survived

Henricus Helstanus (Heinrich Holstanus, fl. c. 1544/52)

English Friar Minor who had fled Tudor England in the late 1530s and joined the Germania Inferior province. In 1544, he led the provincial chapter of Louvain as Commissarius for the general minister. Later discretus of the Antwerp friary and in that position he was elected provincial on the provincial chapter of Bergen-op-Zoom in 1549 (after Bernardinus Sichemis had resigned, due to illness). Helstanus remained provinical minister until August 1552, when he again became general commissioner of the province for the minister general. Maybe he returned to England during the Mary Tudor interlude. The only text we have of Helstanus is the letter he wrote on June 30, 1551 to the Archbishop of Trier, Jan of Isemborch, to praise the capacities of the Franciscan author Franciscus Vervoort. This letter can be found in several printed editions of Vervoort's works (such as Des Vijants Net der booser wercken, raet, visioenen ende bedriechlijcker soeckelijcheijt (Antwerp: Hans van Liesveldt, 1552) and Dit is het Boeck vanden heylighen Sacramente, ghenoempt De Pane Angelorum (Louvain: Reynier van Diest for Aert Peeters in Mechelen, 1552).

Henricus Herpius/Harpius (Hendrik Herp, ca. 1400 near s'Hertogenbosch - 1477 Mecheln)

Order administrator, mystic, and devotional author for clergy and laity alike. Probaly originated from Erp, a village in Brabant. Matriculated at the university of Louvain in 1429. Rector of the Broeders des Gemeenen Levens in Delft (1445) and founder of a Collaciehuys for the Brethern in Gouda (same year). By then, Henry was already a renowned preacher. Travelled to Rome in 1450, where he entered the Observant branch of the Franciscan order (took on the habit in the Aracoeli convent). Returned to take on several offices on the Observant Cologne province. Hence, he was Guardian in Mechelen (Malines, 1454, 1467, and 1473-1477), and Antwerp (1460-1462), and vicarius/provincial (between 1470 and 1473). During his vicariate/provincialate charge, Henry was on good terms with the Burgundian house. With Burgundian support, he was able to establish several Observant convents (Boetendaal, near Brussels (1467/71), Amersfoort (1471), Herentals (1471/74), and the Poor Clare convent of Haarlem (1471)). Henry died on 13 July or 22 February 1477 in the Franciscan convent of Mechelen. Again with Burgundian support, he was able to fend off criticisms by the secular clergy (such as the bishop of Cambrai, who found fault with the foundation (without canonical authorisation) of the Observant convent of Herentals). Henrricus was a rather prolific and influential author of sermons, ascetical and mystical works (See below. For his influence, see especially the works of De Troeyer). He published a series of sermons De Tempore, De Sanctis, De Tribus Partibus Poenitentiae, De Decem Preceptis, as well as Sermones de Diversis (which also is known as as De Processu Humani Profectus). His most famous work no doubt is the mystical Spieghel der Volcomenheit, which draws on Bonaventure, Thomas Aquinas, Hugh of Balma, Rudolf of Biberach, Jan van Ruusbroeck, Rulman Merswin, Tauler etc., and which subsequently was translated into Latin and several vernaculars. [There are several printed editions of the Latin Speculum perfectionis, and of Herp's other works. The first Latin edition of the Speculum appeared in 1509, under the editorial supervision of the Cologne Carthusian Petrus Blomevenna. In the closing years of the fifteenth century followed an abbreviated version of all the works of Herp, entitled Theologia Mystica/Directorium Aureum Contemplativorum, compiled by the Carthusian Dietrich Lohr van Straatum and Bruno Loher, which was printed several times in the sixteenth century. It contains a Soliloquium Divini Amoris, sermons, a Scala Amoris, an Eden Contemplativorum, and the Spieghel der Volcomenheit. The third edition of the Theologia Mystica (Cologne, 1556) was dedicated to Ignace of Loyola. Yet the book was placed on the Index. A fourth editio castigata was presented by Petrus Paulus Philippus OP. This edition was very influential and formed the base for further editions and translations. The Theologia Mystica became an official handbook within the Franciscan order in 1633 (the general chapter of Toledo)].

The work consists of four principal parts: ‘De XII stervingen’ (12 chapters); ‘Dat werkende leven’ (12 chapters); ‘Het scouwende leven’ (32 chapters); ‘Dat overweselic scouwende leven’ (8 chapters). According to the editor Verschueren (see below), the work exists in at least three different redactions. A first redaction only survives in Dutch manuscripts. A second redaction was most widespread among German Cartusians and formed the basis for German translations and German editions (for instance MS Nürnberg StB. Cent. VII 21, and the editions of Nürnberg (before 1469) and Mainz (Peter Schoeffer, 1475), as well as for the Latin translation by Peter Blomevennas and several other German and French translations and editions. A third redaction forms the basis for the Latin translation printed in Venice, 1524 and the dependent Spanish, Portugesian and Italian translations (cf. for instance Espejo de Perfección: Madrid, Nac., 74 ff. 1-21; Madrid, Nac., 8783 (1622). On these Spanish, Italian, and Portugesian translations, see also J. Orcibal (1964)). Although this division seems to account for most manuscripts and reworkings, several manuscripts, such as Berlin mgf 11317 ff. 1ra-99 vb and Konstanz, Heinrich Seuse Gymnasium cod. 5 [olim 27] and others, do not seem to fit in these categories.

Divini Amoris Christiformiumque Soliloquium/Soliloquia super Cantica, printed in Theologia Mystica Vol. I.

De Processu Humani Profectus, ed. Georgette Epiney-Burgard, Veröffentlichungen des Instituts für Europäische Geschichte Mainz, Abt. Abendl. Religionsgeschichte Band 106(Wiesbaden, 1982). [A collection of 21 sermons. No old edition known, although two of these sermons can be found in editions of the Theologia Mystica. The sermons deal with the spiritual life as a processus towards union with God, which is interpreted as a return to the soul’s true origin. The 21 sermons can be distinguished into six groups. Sermons one to five (De interiori cubiculo regis aeterni, De sacramenti sumptione, De spirituali nativitate contemplativorum, De duplici iugo Christi, De piscina divinitatis et quinque poticibus) introduce major topics of the spiritual life and speak about the nature of divinity and spiritual union. Sermons six, seven and eight (De tribus quae ducunt ingratum ad detestabilem recidivationem, De septem gradibus recidivationum, De gratiarum actione reddenda et gratitudine) analyse the consequences of ingratitude and the benefits of gratitude towards God. Sermon nine (De divina voluntate et nostrae voluntatis perfecta conformitate) speaks about possible perfect conformity between human and Divine will. Sermons ten and eleven (Quomodo ad custodiendum Dei tabernaculum quadruplicem respectum habere debemus, De quatuor affectibus, quibus cor iustorum debet esse ornatum) provide a spiritual and symbolical exegesis of Exodus texts. Sermons twelve and thirteen (De anima Deo dicata quomodo eam Christus quadrupliciter ingreditur, Qualiter anima Deo erit speciosa et delicata) speak about the coming of Christ into the soul and its subsequent sanctification. Sermons fourteen to seventeen (Quod ad veram perfectionem non requiritur ingressus religionis et in quibus consistit perfectio viatoris, Qualiter ad perfectionem tendens humilitate et paupertate ornatus esse debet, Qualiter ad perfectionem aspirans obedientia praeditus esse debet, Qualiter ad perfectionem laborans patientia et caritate fulcitus esse debet) speak about the state of spiritual perfection, with its accompagnying virtues (showing that true perfection can and should be sought after by every Christian). Sermons eighteen to twenty (De effectibus primi et infimi gradus amoris divini, De effectibus sex graduum amoris sequentium, De sex quae requiruntur ad debitam formam dilectionis proximi exemplo Christi) speak at length about the various degrees of divine and human love. Finaly, sermon twenty-one (De martyrio corporali et sextuplici martyrio spirituali.) speaks about the ascetic aspects of the spiritual life, with its corporal and spiritual ‘martyrdom.’ Although the primary audience seemed to have been religious people who had fled the world, and some sermons (esp. twelve and thirteen) aim directly at female religious, his message in principle is meant for all. Herp’s style is very scholastic, making his points with pro and contra arguments, and with recourse to a wide range of biblical and theological authorities. This implies at least a relatively well-educated public.]

Henricus Kastner (d. 1530)

German Observant friar from the Upper Germany Province. Active as preacher at Heidelberg (1495-96), Ingolstadt (1496-1501), Nürnberg (1501-1507), Heilbronn (1508-1510), Ulm (1511-1513: at the same time active at Ulm as guardian and lector of theology), Nürnberg (1513-14), Freiburg i. Breisgau (1515-1519: also worked together with Caspar Schatzgeyer in introducing the Observance in the Freiburg convent), and again Nürnberg (1519-1520). In 1522, he was definitor for his province, as well as guardian of the Bamberg convent. In 1523, he succeeded Schatzgeyer as provincial minister of the Upper Germany province. Ca. 1525, Kastner abdicated, due to health problems. During his lifetime, Kastner apparently produced several sermon collections, with titles as Sermonarium Viarum Vitae et Mortis, Sermones Extravagantes, Eytlposs, Sermones Ulmenses, and Sermones de Sanctis et Aliis Variis in Principio Annotatis. Of these sermon collections, only the last-mentioned Sermones de Sanctis have come down to us. This collection contains 113 Latin outlines of sermons for special feast days during the liturgical year. Most of these outlines provide the Introductio, the Divisio (in Latin rhyme, sometimes with German translation), and the Dilatatio (authorities and exempla). Of special interest are the sermon outlines 27 to 36, which focus on the suffering of Christ, and might reflect the decision of the Franciscan general chapter of 1464 (Mechelen), to emphasize the suffering of Christ in popular sermons [for a further characterisation of these sermon outlines, their use of authorities (such as Augustine, Bernard of Clairvaux, Thomas Aquinas, Bonaventure, Alexander of Hales, and John Vitalis), proverbs, similes from nature, rhetorics, and reference to contemporary political and religious concerns, see the article of Einhorn, and especially the 1904 article of Landmann]. These Latin outlines form the basis of, or are besed on, actual sermons preached by Kastner in German between 1498 and 1501 (in Ingolstadt), and again in other places between 1506 and 1522. From his period as provincial minister, we have an Epistola Encyclica (24 March, 1524), which Kastner wrote from Kreuznach to his fellow friars, and in which he complained about the religious troubles and the defection of friars.

Henricus Kettenbach (Heinrich von Kettenbach, fl. early sixteenth century)

OMObs. Member of the Ulm convent since 1521. In 1522, he becomes noted for his criticism of ecclesiastical doctrines concerning fasting and religious vocations. He also criticizes the behaviour of clerics. This draws out a counter-attack by the Dominican P. Nestler. In response, Kettenbach attacks the teaching authority of the Catholic church, saying that the true preachers of the Gospel are people like Luther, Melanchthon and Karlstadt, comparing them (and especially the first two) with the prophets Elijah and Daniel. As a result of his ideas, Kettenbach is forced to leave Ulm by the end of 1522, travelling first to Augsburg and from there to Strasbourg and Erfurt. In 1523, he publishes nine pamphlets against the Roman church, asking the royalty and the nobility of Europe to support the cause of the reformation. That same year, Kettenbach publishes his rather successful Practica, directed against the Edict of Worms. Kettenbach probably died in or shortly after 1524. Some scholars have tried to identify Kettenbach with the Franciscan friar Johannes Locher, who was executed at Munich in 1524. Yet that identification seems unwarranted.

Henricus `Knoderer' of Mainz (Heinrich von Isny/Heinrich Goeckelmann/Heinrich Kugullin (cuculla=capuchon) : 1222 , Isny - 17, 03, 1288, Hagenau)

Born in Isny as son of a craftsman. Entered the Franciscan order during his studies in Paris, which produced his nickname `Knoderer', because of the Franciscan girdle with knots. After studies in Paris, where he would have obtained a doctorate (check Glorieux?), he taught in Basel and Mainz (mentioned there in 1274), and was elected guardian of the Luzern friary. Became the counsellor of King Rudolph of Habsburg (elected King of the German Roman Empire in 1273) and negociated on his behalf with pope Gregory X in Rome to obtain papal recognition of Rudolph's election. In the context of a meeting between King Rudolph and Gregory X, Heinrich was elevated to the episcopal chair of Basel in October 1275. In this position, Heinrich continued to be involved with diplomatic activities for the King, for instance to smooth the latter's access to the Imperial crown, negociations for which started in 1284. Heinrich also negociated with representatives of the English crown for the marriage between Rudolp's son Hartmann with the English princess Johanna, a venture that was not successful. Heinrich also provided Rudolph with military support during King's conflict with Ottokar of Bohemia. As Bishop of Basel, Heinrich also took part in yet another military campaign with the King in Bohemia and was involved with negociations between Empire and Philip of Savoye (1282). During renewed negociations concerning Rudolph's imperial coronation in 1286, Heinrich was asked to intervened into a dispute concerning the election of the new bishop of Mainz (where, after the death of Werner of Eppstein in 1284, two different candidates had been elected for the post). Eventually, Pope Honorius IV decided that Heinrich was the best candidate for that Archdiocese, which was reckoned to be one of the most important ecclesiastical positions in the Empire, elevating him to that position in May 1286. As Archbishop of Mainz (Archbishop Heinrich II), Heinrich became involved with anti-Jewish agitation in his diocese, inaugurating persecutions and also expulsions. He continued to be asked for diplomatic missions and died on the national council of Würzburg, where the succession of Rudolph of Habsburg was discussed. He was buried in Mainz cathedral. Stegmüller ascribed to Heinrich ‘Knoderer’ a comprehensive abbreviation of Bonaventure’s Sentences commentary, written for those student friars (fratres pauperes) who could not afford to buy or were not yet ready for Bonaventure’s own work. On the basis of manuscript information, this abbreviation, which had considerable success in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries (and is generally considered one of the better abbreviations of Bonaventure’s commentary), can also be ascribed to Frater H(enricus), lector in the Franciscan convent of Zürich. This friar might be identical with Heinrich ‘Knoderer’, yet the identification is not secure.

Henricus Pippinck (Henryck/Hendrik Pippinck, ca. 1524-ca. 1580)

Possibly born in Kassel. Entered Louvain University in 1541 and as well-to-do student a member of the pedagogium De Lelie. Near the end of his artes education, he joined the Friars Minor in the Provincia Germaniae Inferioris. After finishing his noviciate and his ordination, he was possibly novice master in Louvain between 1546 and 1552. From 1552, he was preaching in Antwerp, and between 1558-1564 first vicar and then guardian of the Antwerp friary. In between, he visited England in 1554, in the context of the mariage of Mary Tudor and Philip II. He stayed for a year in London and preached to fellow countrymen. ten years later, in 1564, he became provincial minister (1564-1568), and in 1565 also ultramontan general diffinitor. In these functiones he experienced the iconoclast fury in the Low Countries. Maybe Bajanist tendencies, but not to the extent that it harmed his career. Possibly between 1568 and 1571 but in any case in 1569, Pippinck is guardian in Mechelen/Malines. In 1569 he preached during Lent, and he was asked to check the orthodoxy of books sold in the town. In 1570/71 he was visitator of seventeen tertiary houses at the requyest of the papal commissarius Lucas de Alvaro OFM. The year after (1572), he resided in Brussels, where he was guardian in 1574. Two years later, he is still in Brussels and acted as spiritual guide of the Urbanist Poor Clares of Obbrussel (south to the town, destroyed in 1578). Shortly afterwards, he possibly fled for Protestant forces and died around 1580 in or near Kassel. Pippinck was a preacher of renown, who preached frequently in Antwerp and elsewhere and drew out a huge public.

manuscripts/editions

Sermoen/Leeringhe vanden Eerwerdighen heere hendrick pippinck: MS Brussels, Royal Library 3986-3989 ff. 50v-56v. Partly edited in Neerlandica Seraphica 10 (1936), 183-192. The sermon was copied in a collection of sermons and devotional texts gathered by ‘Ioncfrau Adriane van den Houtte ter eere Gods syner liever moeder maria tot behouf der edelder ghemeynte van Vorst anno 1577.‘ See Ampe, 364-410. According to De Troeyer, 303, another sermon from this collection ascribed by Ampe to Pippinck (on ff. 75r-79v and in another version on 121v-129v) is not the work of our friar Minor, but according to the wordings of the text is the work of another Franciscan preaching to the Poor Clares in Brussels (and not the Urbanist Rich Clares of Obbrussel). Likewise, other sermons from this collection ascribed to Pippinck by Ampe are probably the work of an as yet unidentified friar Minor.

The sermon is a reportatio by a beguine present in the ‘Convent van den Brande‘ in the Groot Begijnhof. The sermon dates from after May 16, 1568. Cf. De Troeyer, 304.

Edition and commendation of Vervoort's Het Bruylocht Cleedt der Liefden Gods (Antwerp: Peeter van Keerberghen, 1566). Pippinck dedicated his edition to Maria de Lannoy, Viscountess of Bergen and Countess of Waalhem.

Hendrik Pippinck also was involved with the publucation of Anna Bijns's third book of Refereinen, for which Pippinck write a prologue and commendation. This work as issued as, Een seer scoon ende suyver boeck verclarende die mogentheyt Gods, ende Christus ghenade, over die sondighe menschen (Antwerp: Peeter van Keerberghen, 1567), and the following year edited and issued for Nicolaus Tacitus Zegers, Het Sweert des Gheloofs (Antwerp: Jan van Ghelen, 1568), which itself was a translation of Nicole Grenier's L'espée de la foy. Pippinck likewise wrote a commendation in Zegers's translation. Pippinck's commendation depicts in somber tines the socio-religious situation of the Low Countries in the wake of the Iconoclast fury. Cf. De Troeyer, 302-303.

Henricus Standicius (Henricus Stenditius/Henry Standish, d. 9 July, 1535)

Born before 1469. Entered the Franciscan order at an early age and was ordained priest in 1489. Went through the lectorate and degree programs in Oxford and Cambridge and received his doctorate at Oxford before January 1502. Guardian (warden) of Greyfriars at London between 1508 and 1515 and also provincial minister of the English province. Popular preacher, also at the court of Henry VIII (especially between 1515 and 1520). Standish became a staunch supporter of King and parliament in a range of controversies. Henry VIII rewarded him by making Standish bishop of Asaph in 1518. In 1524, Standish fulfilled for Henry VIII ambassadorial missions in Hamburg. he particpated in several heresy trials (against Thomas Bilney and others) and was involved with the divorce proceedings between the King and Catherine of Aragon (as Catherine's counsellor) and he took a stance on the coronation of Anne Boleyn in 1533, incurring the King's displeasure. In his testament, Standish bequeathed fourty pounds to support scholars at Oxford and five punds to the Oxford Franciscan library. All his books went to the Franciscan Doctor of theology Thomas Cudnor. Between 1515 and 1536, Standish became an opponent of Erasmus and Erasmian friends (such as More and Colette), who accused him of being an old-fashioned Scotist and a bad theologian and philologist. The controversies between Standish and the Erasmians started after Standish's criticisms of Erasmus's Novum Instrumentum.

Henricus Stolysen (Heinrich Stolysen, fl. early sixteenth cent.)

OMConv. Friar from the Villingen convent. Preacher and confessor of the local convent of Poor Clares. Custos of the Bodensee custody in the 1520s (with the Franciscan houses Lindau, Konstanz, Zürich, Luzern, Ueberlingen, Villingen, Schaffhausen, Burgdorf, Viktorsberg and Hausach). Provincial friar of the Upper Germany province (1545-1556), during which period he reorganised the province in the struggle against the reformation. Heinrich died in Villingen, on 13 September 1556.

manuscripts

Predigten über das Vaterunser (1536): MS Hamburg, Staatsbibliothek Cod. Theol. 2106. [Sermons copied down in ‘Niederalemannisch’ by a female religious. In these fourteen sermons, which originally probably were given ‘in der zit der hailgen fasten’ in the company of Poor Clares, Heinrich deals with the seven prayers of the Pater Noster. The fifth Pater Noster prayer receives special attention with four sermons (also dealing with the seven laudations of Christ’s mountain sermon). In all, Heinrich’s catechistic Pater Noster sermons show several general resemblances with comparable sermons of Hans Münzinger and Geiler von Kaisersberg (and Luther). Machschefes, 1932, 492: ‘Der Hauptinhalt dieser 14 (…) Predigten ist die Erkenntnis, dass wir armen, schwachen Erdenkinder zu aller Zeit mit tiefer Demut im Herzen das Paternoster beten sollen. Aber wir vermögen doch nichts ohne die unendliche Gnade des lebendigen Gottes - auch auf die unglückliche Spaltung innerhalb der christlichen Kirche weist Stolysen an den bereits erwähnten Stellen hin.’]

Henricus van Biesten (Hendrik van Biesten, fl. 1572/78)

OFM. Preacher in Amsterdam in the early 1570s, and known for his Liedeken op het jaer 1572 (Song on the year 1572). To him has also been ascribed a small Amsterdam chronicle for the years 1534-1535, 1566-1570, 1572-1574, the so-called De Anteykeningen gedaen van Broer Hendrik van Biesen, but some bibliographers contest this (esp. W. Nolet (1928/29). After the so-called altercation of Amsterdam in May 1578, when Protestants took over the urban government by force and immediately began to arrest Catholic religious and close monastic houses, Henricus was forced to leave town, and after several disagreeable experiences arrived in Utrecht before June 22, 1578. According to later authors, he would later have returned in the company of Arnuldus ab Ischa to Amsterdam in secret to serve as a clandestine priest/missionary for the remaining Catholic population, but that cannot be fully corroborated (see the analysis of De Troeyer (1969), 322-333.

Although one of the manuscripts mentions Hendrik van Biesten, Willem Nolet has denied this authorship in Studia Catholica 5 (1928-1929), 177-179. Several more recent bibliographers and historians do not agree with him.

Henricus Vigilis (Henricus de Wissenburck/von Weissenburg, d. 1499)

OFMObs. Probably born in Weißenburg (Alsace). Nothing known about his education. Active as preacher and confessor in Northern Germany. Guardian of the convent of Leonberg (Wurtenberg, 1474-1477) and Weißenburg. Socius of Vicarius General Johannes Philippi, when the latter visited convents of friars and Poor Clares in the provinces of Strasbourg and Saxonia (also in the company of friar Simon of Gouda, guardian of Mainz). Later active as preacher and confessor of the Franciscans and Poor Clares in Alspach (to the West of Colmar in Alsace, see MS Colmar Bibl. Munic. 274 f. 278v; MS Berlin, mgq 164 f. 1r; MS St. Gallen, Stiftsbibl. 1859 p. 469). From 1487 onwards, Henricus holds the same functions in the convent of the Poor Clares of Nürnberg, where he died on 16 July 1499 (Cf. the necrology of the Nürnberg Poor Clares as presented by Würfel (1767), II, 929f. Stephan Fridolin succeeded him as confessor and preacher for the Poor Clares of Nürnberg). Most of his works, which often were put in writing/copied by Poor Clares from Alspach and Nürnberg, and subsequently were corrected and authorised by Henry himself [see Kist (1938), 145] testify to his pastoral activities for Franciscan nuns. His sermons (as well as several of the translations that are attributed to him) show an deep affinity with the style of Bonaventure, and are illustrate the character of fifteenth-century Franciscan spirituality.

M.: Daniel Sudermann, 1622). A modern edition is given in Franziskanisches Schrifttum, ed. K. Ruh (Munich, 1985), II, 129-146. The work describes the marriage of the soul with Christ in seven steps, each of which again is subdivided in three parts. The Latin theological terms (amor, caritas etc.) conncected with the soul’s mystical union with Christ are presented first, followed by German elucidations. Work relies heavily on Bernard of Clairvaux, Gerson, and Dionysius th Carthusian.

For a partial edition (the third part), see: Franziskanisches Schrifttum, ed. K. Ruh (Munich, 1965), I, 157-163. The work is heavily dependent upon the spiritual and disciplinary works of Bonaventure, as well as on the Speculum Disciplinae of Bernard of Bessa. Emphasis on disciplin (esp. silence), obedience, and patience/endurance.

The ascription to Heinrich is not secure (even though the Berlin manuscript mentions Heinrich as author), as the work does not figure among Heinrich’s literary ‘Nachlass’ in the St. Clare obituary of Neurenberg. The work exposits the motive of keeping silent on the basis of a wide range of patristic sources, as well as with recourse to Bernard of Clairveaux, Bonaventure, Thomas Aquinas and Nicholas of Lyra. Work was apparently directed to female religious communities.

It is a sermon collection, inspired by the biblical passsage of Matthew 6,33. The Berlin manuscript states (f. 34vb): 'Die nachgende iij predigen sagen von den anfächtungen der closterlút ouch von gedult wie man sich got ergeben so.' In the Berlin manuscript, the Drei Predigten von den Anfechtungen der Closterlut are kept together with various other sermons concerned with the reform of the female Cistercian monastery of Heggbach, guided by abbess Elisabeth Kröhl. Some of these other sermons can be ascribed to the preacher Heinrich Jäck of Biberach, yet the three sermons that comprise the 'Anfechtungen' are in all probability the work of an Observant Franciscan friar, who clearly knew his Bonaventure. There are no clear internal indications to ascribe the Drei Predigten von den Anfechtungen der Closterlut to Heinrich Vigilius (cf. Schiewer, Verfasserlexikon XI 96f. Schiewer also provides an analysis of the three sermons, claiming that they were clearly meant to function within the context of the reform of the female Cistercian house of Heggbach.)

Henricus Willot (Henry Lombart, ca. 1530-1599)

OFM. Born in a well-to-do family in Fontaine-l'Évêque. Studied grammar in Cologne, Rhetorics in St. Omer (St. Omaars) and began a study of philosophy in Louvain in August 1549. He probably joined the Franciscans of the Provincia Flandriae in the late 1560s and took his vows in the friary of Farciennes in 1571. Subsequently, he studied theology in Paris between 1579 and ca. 1582. This was followed by homiletic assignments in the French-speaking parts of his province, in Artesia, Hainault (Henegouwen) and Namur (Namen). Around 1587/8 he fulfills for about four years a lectorate in scholastic theology in Namur (Namen), and afterward in St. Omer (St. Omer), teaching the Sentences of Lombard. In the mean time, he was a preacher in service of the bishop of Namen, the Franciscan François de Walloncapelle (d. 1592) and his successor Jean Dave (d. 1595), and in tne early 1590s fulfilled the position of guardian in St. Omer. Still guardian, he was elected provincial for the provincia flandriae for the triennium 1595-1598. He was opposed to the erection of Recollect monasteries in his province (which was promoted by the minister general Bonaventura a Caltagirone), and on the provincial chapter of 1598, which Willot attended as commissarius generalis, this caused him to renounce all his provincial responsibilities. Willot was sent to Italy as custos custodum to the general chapter of Rome, which had been deferred to 1599. Willot traveled to Italy in February of that year, and hoped to visit a number of libraries to seek out information on Franciscan authors, but but died of a fever in Padua on September 12, 1599. Willot has left behind a number of sermons, funerary lectures and his main work, the Athenae Ortodoxorum Sodalitii Franciscani, a bibliographical work on Franciscan literature and authors, which thanks to the editorial investment of his fellow friar Nicolaus Gazet (Gazaeus) appeared in the year of Willot's death (officially a year earlier).

This work was dedicated to the minister general Franciscus Gonzaga (already written before Willot's departure to Italy), who had been instrumental in Willot's literary undertaking and who had become renowned in the order because of his own De origine seraphicae religionis Franciscanae eiusque progressibus. Following Gonzaga's enticements and in the wake of Gonzaga's idea (never realized) to create a library of Franciscan authors in Mantua, Willot wanted to create an alphabetical bibliographical guide of all order members who had served the Church through their writings.

Hermanus de Saxonia (Herman Topelstein/Herman von Mühlhausen (?)/fl. ca. 1330-1340)

Lector in Erfurt in the 1330s and 1340s. Exegete and compilor of canon law. Wrote, on request of the provincial minister of Saxony the Casus Abstracti a Iure, a summary of the canon law of confession according to the new rules issued at the council of Vienne (Dudum a Bonifacio; a re-issue of Super Cathedram), illuminating to what extent the friars could exercise their confession rights within the limits set up by the Church. The Casus was later endorsed for circulation throughout the Franciscan Order by the general chapter of 1337 (Cahors). Several late medieval manuscripts contain a Tractatus de Dignitate Sacerdotis, a work that also has been printed (anonymously) as the Stella Clericorum. Some manuscripts attribute this work to Hermann Tepelstensis OFM, yet this seems unwarranted, as that work dats back to the thirteenth century.

Hermannus Etzen (Ermannus, fl. 15th cent.)

Franciscan friar from Erfurt; preacher and mariologist. Elements of his career are known from several autobiographical remarks (edited by Meier (1935), 376). He followed the lectorate program at the Erfurt studium generale (1438-1440). Sent as lector philosophiae to Prenzlau (Spring 1440-early 1441, where, in the context of his teaching assignments, he finished a commentary on the first three books of Aristotle’s Physica). As the philosophy study house there had to close, due to a lack of funds, he transfered to a lectorate position in Halberstadt (first months of 1441, where, due to lack of library resources, he had to give up on his Physica commentary, and started a commentary on De Anima (book I & II, c. 1-4). In Spring 1441, he becomes lector secundarius for theology at Magdeburg (until 1443). In 1444, he is found at the Hildesheim Synod, and on 30 June 1444 (Goslar?), he engages in a public disputation with Johann Bremer. Spring 1445, he returns to Erfurt, where he matriculates at Erfurt university for the theology degree program (in the Franciscan studium generale). Between 1445 and 1447, he completes his Sentences commentary. Continues to teach and to partake in academic activities until 1448. Probably leaves the university as baccalaureus formatus. After probable teachings assignments, he embarks on an administrative and homiletic career: guardian of Hildesheim (1458) and production of Marian sermons (Summula super Ave Praeclara) in Hildesheim, where he died between 1465 and 1470. Michler (VL² II, 641) remarks: ‘E. ist der einzige Theologe der Erfurter franziskanischen Schule, von dem Kommentare zu den Werken des Aristoteles bekannt sind. Er faßt die Lehre des jeweiligen Werkes zusammen und redigiert sie in einer ‘Sententia conclusiva’, die er nach dem ‘Sic et Non’- Schema ausbaut. Auch im Kommentar über die Sentenzen verfährt er ähnlich.’ This would indicate that these works of Etzen stay close to the actual teaching context in which they were generated.

Hermannus Janssens (1684-05-05, 1762)

OFMRec. Belgian friar. Born in Antwerp. Entered in 1703 the Recollects in Germany, but returned to Antwerp in 1730. There he became Professor of scripture, followed by administrative assignments: secretary of the provincial minister, custodian, and visitator of the Saxonian province. After the provincial chapter of Brussels (1738), he was elected provincial. As provincial and vice-definitor, he took part in the general chapter of Valladolid. Hermannus left behind three major works, some of which saw several editions. His major work on scripture, dedicated to the archbishop of Malines, is the Prodomus Sacer. His liturgical works were written on request of the bishop of Antwerp.

Hermannus Sack (Hermann Sack/Sakch, ca. 1370, Rottenburg a. Neckar - 1, 03, 1440, Regensburg)

German friar from Rottenburg a.d. Neckar. Son of a miller and the brother of the Franciscan friar Johannes Sack (d. 1438). Entered the Franciscan order in 1390. Was several times guardian in Munich (between 1414 and 1432) [cf. Munich clm 8826, 8977 & 9028], and later, after 1432, confessor of the Poor Clares in Regensburg [Munich cgm 2928]. Painter, illustrator and author of religious literature for the liturgical year. In 1439, Hermannus left to the Munich convent an important collection of 43 manuscripts, some of which were copied/compiled by Herman himself, aided by his brother Johannes (d. 1438). Besides, Herman is the author of an important necrology of the Friars and Poor Clares of Munich.

Hernando de Trejo y Sanabria (1553-1614)

OFM. Bishop. He was the son of Captain Hernando de Trejo, founder of the town of San Francisco del Sur (present-day Brasil) and doña María de Sanabria. He was sent for studies to Lima in 1568, where he joined the Franciscan order and was ordained priest in 1576. After completing his studies he was appointed as provincial administrator in Peru. In 1592, at the recommendation of te Consejo de Indias and the Viceroy of Peru, King Philip II of Spain suggested Hernando's candidacy for the episcopal see of Tucamán. Pope Clement VIII confirmed the appointment in 1594. As bishop, Hernando organised a number of synods (1599, 1606, 1607) in the town of Santiago del Estero for the promotion of mission among the indigenous population. He also supported the building of churches and the creation of confraternities among creole, mulat, indigenous and black communities, and with royal permission, he also established around 1603 a Colegial Seminary alongside of the Cathedral, and stimulated the cloth painting industry. Near the end of his life, between 1612 and 1614, he worked together with the Jesuits to secure the foundation and endowment of a university in Córdoba (the basis of what now is the Argentinian Universidad Nacional de Córdoba).

Hieronymus Alberici (Girolamo Alberici, 1525-1590)

OFMConv. Italian friar from Brisighella (Faenza diocese). Entered the Conventuals and embarked on a preaching and teaching career. After ca. 1560, he preached for thirty years in a number of Italian towns (a number of Lenten cycles in Venice, Genoa, Pavia, Naples, and Palermo, and other preaching assignments in Siena, 1570; Bergamo, 1573; Perugia, 1587; Rome, 1588; Rimini, 1589).  On top of his preaching assignments, which gave him a huge homiletic reputation, he fulfilled several charges as regent lector, for instance at the study houses of Bologna, Padua, and Naples. On 27 October 1584, he was elected provincial minister of the Bologna province.  Four years later, in 1588, pope Sixtus V called him to Rome, where he became the regent of the Collegium S. Bonaventurae in the Twelve Apostles friary. There he taught theology and became the spiritual counsellor of a number of high ecclesiastical and noble figures. He died in Rome on 26 April 1590 and was buried in the church of the Conventual friary. Only one of his theological works seems to have survived.

Hieronymus Barlowe (Jerome Barlowe, fl. 1528–1529)

English Franciscan friar. Not much is known about him, other that he was in the eyesight of informers/agents of Cardinal Wolsey in June 1529, when he was being pursued for calumnous writing. Barlow and his fellow friar William Roy were suspected to have written Rede me and be Nott Wrothe, a satyrical text against Wolsey and the friars, with Lutheran overtones, which had been published anonymously by Johann Schott in Strasbourg, in 1528. This printer was questioned by Wolsey’s agents, and confessed under oath that he had issued 1000 copies but had received no payment from Barlowe or Roy. The attribution of Rede me and be Nott Wrothe was repeated by Thomas More in 1530. In the Parable of the Wicked Mammon (1528), Tyndale describes Barlowe and Roy as lapsed Observant friars from Greenwich. According to Tyndale, Barlowe had traveled from Worms to Strasbourg in 1527, and had become fully Protestant. There is some scholarly confusion between Jerome Barlowe and his namesake William Barlow with regard to the authorship of both Rede me and a curious anti-protestant work called the Lutheran Factions. Either Jerome or William recanted to Henry VIII in 1533 (cf. British Libray, Cotton MS Cleo E IV, fol. 121). At least as late as 2011, Zlatar ascribed the Rede me to Jerome Barlowe.

Hieronymus Biancone (Hieronimo Biancone, 1656-1726)

OFMCap. Italian friar. Born at Caglio in 1656. He entered the Capuchin order on 15 November 1677 in the Milan province. He embarked on a lengthy preaching career, to die at the Erba convent on 14 October 1726. He was a productive author, yet not all of his works seem to have survived. Only two of his writings were published during his lifetime. Several other seem to reside in manuscript form in the provincial archives of the Milan Capuchins.

Hieronymus Bocchi (Girolamo Bocchi/da Firenze, ca. 1594-1660)

OFMCap & OFMConv. Born at Florence. Entered the Conventual branch, but soon switched to the Capuchins, taking the Capuchin habit on May first 1614. His novice master was Archangelo da Cortona. For several decades, he worked within the Capuchin order as a teacher and a preacher. Yet towards the end of his life, he would have switched back to the Conventuals. He died in 1660 at Pomarancia, near Volterra, when preaching during the Lent season. Girolamo is foremost known for his two-volume encyclopaedic handbook, the Monopanthon Harmonicon et Chronologicum in Duas Partes ac Libros X Digestum, intending to cover all areas of human and Divine knowledge. Not all books of this encyclopaedic handbook have been edited, yet it seems that most other works attributed to Girolamo by various bibliographers are part of this.

editions

De Iusta et Universali Mensura, 2 Vols. (Venice, 1621).

Monopanthon Harmonicon et Chronologicum in Duas Partes ac Libros X Digestum, in quibus plurima tam sacra quam profana themata ex divinis et humanis litteris ac insuper ex quingentis ampliusque codicibus novissime compilata et ad normam psalterii decem chordarum coaptata, concordata et probata, continentur. The first part, containing the first five books, was edited at Bologna: Typis Haeredum de Duciis, in 1654. For a desciption of the different titles of the various books, see Teetaert, ‘Bocchi’, DHGE IX, 307-308; Lexikon Capuccinum, 745.

Franchini mentions a number of other works/fragments (Haeresum, & Haereticorum Chronologia, series doctrinae, & confutationes/Encomia historica Florentiae, & insignum Florentinorum/De ordinibus Regularibus, & militaribus compendiosa narratio/Psalmodia Poetica, idest Psalmi aliqui carmine elegiaco expositi/Rhapsodia veteris, ac novi Testamenti/Breviarym Historicum), yet it is unclear to what extent these have survived.

Hieronymus de Molfetta (Girolamo da Molfetta, fl. early sixteenth century)

OFMCap. Preacher, spiritual author and editor of the spiritual works of Capuchin colleagues. Disciple and admirator of Bernardino Ochino, whom he eventually followed towards the Calvinist camp [check!]. Stimulated among the Italian populace the devotion towards the Corona del Nome di Gesú, which was a main subject of his Alcune regule de la oratione mentale con la contemplatione de la Corona del nome di Iesu, predicate da Fra Hieronymo da Melfetta (Milan: Francesco Cantalupo, 1539). For a partial edition, see also I fratri cappuccini. Documenti e testimonianze del primo secolo, ed. Costanzo Cargnoni (Perugia, 1991) III, 429-445. The work is first of all a guide to regain the spouse, that is Christ, through a process of mental prayer, and is followed by a guide to contemplate the Corona del Nome di Gesú, which is passion devotion exercise, following the 33 mysteries of Christ’s life on earth from the Incarnation to the Pentecost experience. The Regule are directly dependent upon the spiritual works of Cordoni. At the end of the 1539 edition of the Alcune Regule is found a Tavola Cristiana, which is a small catechism.

Tavola Cristiana/Tabula per la religione cristiana, di tutte quelle cose che ciascuno è tenuto di apere, present as an appendix to Alcune regule de la oratione mentale con la contemplatione de la Corona del nome di Iesu, predicate da Fra Hieronymo da Melfetta (Milan: Francesco Cantalupo, 1539) and also at the end of Molfetta’s edition of Bartolomeo Cordoni’s Dyalogo de la unione spirituale de Dio con l’anima (Milan: Francesco Cantalupo & Innocentio da Cigognera, 1539). The work was also edited in a collection of works of the catechistic author Tullio Crispoldi da Rieti, the: Simplici erudimenti over ammaestramenti della fede nostra christiana, raccolti per Tullio Crispoldo da Rieti (Venice: Stefano da Sabbio, April 1540). Some evidence that the catechism of Molfetta was used with the works of Crispoldo by the bishop of Verona, and by several Capuchin preachers involved with the Scuole della dottrina cristiana.

Hieronymus de Montefiore Conca (Girolamo da Montefiore/Girolamo Pratelli, 1520-1584)

OFMConv. & OFMCap. Began as a Conventual friar, and he fulfilled prestigious teaching positoons there (known as the ‘mons scientiae’, cf. Melchior a Pobladura, Historia Generalis, Pars Prima, 62). After he joined the Caouchins, he took part in the Council of Trent and he was the Capuchin minister general between 1574 and 1581. In this function, he asked Bernardino da Colpetrazzo (1514-1594) in 1580 to compile the vitae of 23 early Capuchin friars, to which he himself added a few more. Later, this would form the basis of Bernardino da Colpetrazzo's three-volume Historia Ordinis Fratrum Minorum Capuccinorum. Although Girolamo da Montefiori was sceptical towards the influx of studies in the Capuchin order, he did provide some private courses on logic. He died April 8, 1584.

Hieronymus de Neapoli (Girolamo da Napoli/Giacomo de Magistris, ?-1636)

Born in Naples (as Giacomo de Magistris). Joined the order on 29 giugno 1591 (Vico del Gargano, Fioggia), and made his profession in 1592 (S. Angelo province). He was several time guardian (Serracapriola 1608, Lucera 1613, Serracapriola 1618, Lucera 1625, Serracapriola 1633), definitor (1613, 1630, 1631, 1633), and provincial minister (1620-1623, 1626-1629). He also is known as novice master and as chronicler. For during his years as guardian of Lucera in 1613-1615, he finished his Chronichetta, which he had been commanded to write by the order province and the minister general Girolamo da Montefiore some ten years before. He also collected materials that later would be used by his successor as chronicler, Gabriele Gabrielli da Cerignola. During his years as guardian of Lucera, Girolamo also collected ‘useful’ books for the convent library.

Hieronymus de Pistoia (Girolamo da Pistoia/Girolamo Finucci, d. 1570)

OFM and OFMCap. Born in 1508 in Pistoia (Tuscany), as the son of Pistoia da Alessandro Finucci and Fiammetta Ippoliti, he joined the Franciscan Observants in 1530, in Giaccherino, allegedly shortly after the unexpected death of his fiancee/young wife (Maddalena Buti) on their marriage day. He studied theology for at least four years and reached the state of official preacher. He preached throughout Tuscany, as well as in Milan and Rome between 1540 and 1552. The same year he was elected provincial diffinitor, and in December he was elected to be a representative for his province at the Observant general chapter of Salamanca, celebrated in 1553. Returning from Salamance, in 1553, he transferred to the Capuchins, whom he had encountered repeatedly since 1542. In the young Capuchin order he became a propagator of the introduction of proper philosopical and theological studies as precondition for a fruitful apostolic engagement. Girolamo fulfilled several functions in the Capuchin order, including various preaching, lectorate and administrative assignments: he was made first provincial vicar in Bologna in 1556 and later provincial of Tuscany in 1558. Two years later he was in Naples, where he became theology lector in the study house of S. Eframo Vecchio He was elected two times a general diffinitor (1555, 1567), and near the end of his life general procurator for his order (1570).

In 1562, he took part in the Council of Trent at the invitation of the Capuchin general vicar Tommaso da Città di Castello. As a theologian, Girolamo intervened in the session of 28 September of that year in the debate on the order sacrament, with a defense of the traditional Catholic doctrine on the priesthood and the legitimacy of traditional order hierarchy. In 1567, Girolamo went to Rome, to direct the new Capuchin studium generale. There he became involved with the organisation of preparatory studies in logic, physics and metaphysics, and in the teaching of theology along Bonaventurean and Scotist lines. When he wanted to travel onwards to Genoa, to head the studium generale there, Pope Pius V appointed him as his personal theologian, which more or less forced Girolamo to stay in Rome. In Rome, Girolamo became very active and he maintained numerous contacts with important figures of the Catholic reformation (such as Filippo Neri). He also helped Marietta Gondi with the creation of institutes for poor girls in danger of becoming prostitutes, and he provided spiritual care to criminals and heretics who were condemned to death (including the apostolic protonotarius Pietro Carnesecchi, Sept. 1567). When the same pope wanted to grant him a Cardinal’s hat, Girolamo refused, as he deemed it incompatible with his Capuchin vocation. In 1579, he accepted the charge of leading 30 Caouchin chaplains who were to take part in a Venetian crusader fleet against the Turks, and he devoted himself in this position especially to the care of Plague victims. He attracted the disease himself and died on Crete, in La Canea, on 30 November 1570, and was buried in the church of Saint Francis in Caserta. Girolamo was a preacher with a highy personal style, and was known for his conviction that sin depended more on ignorance than on the the depraved nature of human beings. Girolamo might have been the first Capuchin to wrote a philosophical work, namely the De quantitatibus, rerumque distinctionibus dialogus, based on knowledge gathered in the Observant school network. Aside from that he edited works of Bonaventure and published a number of his own sermons.

Hieronymus de Stufa (Girolamo della Stufa, c. 1380-1459)

OFMObs. Italian friar; renowned preacher. Born in Florence (within the rich della Stufa family). Entered the Observants at Fiesole and then transferred to the neighbouring convent San Salvatore al Monte alle Croci. Vicar or the Tuscan observants and one of the most enthousiastic followers and supporters of Bernardino da Siena. Like the latter, della Stufa followed a conciliatory politic towards the Conventuals, trying to prevent a total breach. Preached in the streets (Tuscany, Milan, Venice, Creta, and Cyprus), as well as to the students of Padua. Died at the convent of San Salvatore al Monte alla Croci (Florence) on 11 february 1459. After his death, his grave became a cult site, yet no official enquiry was started for his canonisation (although the Holy See approved a public commemoration on the anniversary of his death). Several of his sermon collections might have survived.

Hieronymus Kakowski (Hieronim h. Kosciesza, 1584-1653)

Observant friar from the baltic region. Active in the Russian and the Polish provinces. Made his profession in 1609 in Vilnius. Provincial secretary in 1617 and provincial definitor in 1623. In the late 1620s, early 1630s, he took a stance against the reform initiatives of Antonio Strozzi (commissioner for the Polish-Lithuanian provinces delegated by Franciscan minister general), and was temporarily excommunicated. At the end of the whole conflict, Kakowski was reconciled and had further administrative charges in what had become the Russian province (after 1640). Hence he was Guardian at the Przeworsk (1630s and 1640s) and Radom (1649) convents, and by 1649 also involved with negociations with the Greater Poland province to obtain a provincial union. He probably died in Grodno. In between his adminstrative charges, he was also an order historian and archivist. In 1630, after his appointment as official chronolographer or historian of his convent, he wrote the Florilegium Minorum (a history of the Friars Minor in Poland). He sent this work to Luke Wadding in Rome, who used it for his Annales Ordinis Minorum. Hieronim is also the compiler/author of the Acta et Miracula B. Simonis de Lipnica and of the Anagryphe (a chronology of the Polish Observant Franciscans for the period 1451-1651).

Hippolitus Bergomensis (Ippolito da Bergamo/de Scalve, d. 1617 or 1619)

OFMCap. Born ca. 1548 in the Scalve valley near Bergamo. Joined the Capuchins in the Brescia province in 1565. Was sent out in a party lead by Mattia Bellintano de Salò to help establish the Capuchin order in France and to fight against Protestantism and other heresies. Thereafter, Ippolito is found as novice master and guardian in the Capuchin friaries of Saint  Honoré (Paris, 1578-79, 1581-83) and of Étampes (1579-80). Between 1580/81 and 1583/84, he also was provincial definitor. In 1584, he was sent to the Lyon province, where he became definitor and guardian of the Arles friary. In 1587, he was sent to Antwerp in Flanders, at a time when Spanish troops were making headway with re-establishing Spanish Royal authority in the Southern Low Countries. Ippolito became general commissioner for the Flemish Capuchins, engaged with the establishment of new Capuchin friaries , and the creation of specific study centres and houses for novices. He also became guardian of the Antwerp Capuchin friary as well as novice master (1588-1590). When the Capuchin commisariate of Flanders was elevated to the status of a province in 1595, Ippolito was elected provincial minister on 18 August of that year. In this quality, he  issued a new ceremoniale with reglementations concerning the religious observance of the rule, the performance of liturgical obligations and the development of the Capuchin spiritual life. During his time as commissioner and provincial, fourteen new Capuchin friaries were created. Ipolito was re-elected in January 1597, but the order’s general, Girolamo da Sorbo, convinced in this by critics of Ippolito, who accused him of being too supportive of quietist and spiritual groups in the order (groups that hammered on the importance of the spiritual life of the inner self, influenced by ideas of Felice of Lapedonia, Francis Lavalin Nugent etc.  but also by the older writings of Hendrik Herp, Ruusbroec and Tauler), prevented his election. Ippolito’s novice training manuals and other spiritual texts were suppressed. Ippolito accepted his demotion and returned to the Brescia province, where he again became novice master and guardian, this time in the Crema friary. He died at Bergamo, either on 7 or 8 December 1617, or on 10 December 1619.

Honorius Canensis (Honoré de Cannes/Ange Raymond, 1632-1694)

OFMCap. French friar from Cannes, born on 8 January 1632. Entered the order in July 1649 in Carpentras (St. Louis of Avignon province). Taking his profession on 7 August 1650. After his theological studies and his priestly ordination, he embarked on a preaching career, specialising in popular preaching to the masses, aided by a group of interpreters and confessors working as a team, especially in Paris and the Provence, but also in Abbéville, Calais, Grenoble and elswhere. He was frequently asked for long preaching missions in areas with heterodox tendencies. By the end of 1693, he was once again asked for such a mission, this time by the bishop of Toulon. Yet he was so exhausted that he fell ill and died just after arriving there, on 14 January 1694. Counter to the baroque preaching style of others, Honoré chose to preach very simple, adapting his message to his audience. On most missions, Honoré and his team would organise on preaching days a short instruction after Mass, followed by an additional meditation some hours later, when the people would take a break from their work around noon. In the afternoon, they would hold a conference in dialogue format, explaining doctrinal and moral issues, and during the early evening hours this was concluded by a real sermon. In between these specific elements, catechetical instruction could be given, as well as confession sessions, and specific training sessions directed to the local clergy or to specific groups among the laity. Honoré’s preaching rallies were frequently combined with local processions and specific ablutions/reconciliations. Moreover, he organised ‘bureaux charitables’ for the distribution of alms and ‘bureaux d’accommodement’ aiming to bring together broken families and to end feuds between people. In the course of his preaching career, Honoré wrote several works, which he had distributed by an editor/librarian/literary agent who came with him on his missions.

Hugo de Digne (Hugues de Digne, d. before 1260)

French friar. Active as lector and preacher in the Provence. Also mentioned as provincial minister. Prominent Joachimist figure in the chronicle of Salimbene, and strong defender of the Franciscan usus pauper (Cf. Salimbene de Adam, Chronica, ed. Oswald Holder-Egger, MGH Scriptores XXXII (Hanover, 1904-1913). Became source of inspiration for later generations of spirituals. He also played a role in the foundation of the brothers of the Sack, and apparently had good contacts with John of Parma (minister general of the order between 1247 and 1257), Robert Grosseteste, and Adam Marsh. Hugh’s sister, Douceline, was an important figure in the unfolding of the female Franciscan branches in the Provence. Several of Hugh’s works have survived, namely a rule commentary (written before 1245 (Sisto & Brooke) or around 1252/3 (Paul & Flood); hence shortly before or after the bull Ordinem Vestrum. Possibly written on request of John of Parma and in preparation of the general chapter of Metz, which suspended Ordinem Vestrum), a treatise on Franciscan poverty (De Finibus Paupertatis), and possibly a dialogue between adherents of povery and its enemies in the order. Interestingly enough, his writings as such do not cohere very well with the Joachimist figure that appears in the writings of Salimbene and Angelo Clareno. In the most recent scholarship (Damien Ruiz/Felice Accrocca), Hugh's authorship of the Disputatio inter Zelatorem Paupertatis et Inimicum Domesticum Eius is contested

editions

De Finibus Paupertatis, ed. Claudia Florovsky, AFH 5 (1912), 277-290. See also the work of Sisto (1971), mentioned in the bibliography. [Highy structured and ‘scholastic’ defense of absolute Franciscan poverty. Modern scholars have highlighted the afinity with Bonaventure’s views of Franciscan poverty]

Disputatio inter Zelatorem Paupertatis et Inimicum Domesticum Eius, edited in Speculum Minorum (Rouen, 1509) Treatise III, part 2 ff. 186-191; Monumenta Ordinis Minorum (Salamanca, 1511) Treatise II ff. 219v-225v; Firmamenta Trium Ordinum (Paris, 1512) Pars IV ff. 105r-108v; Firmamentum Trium Ordinum (Venice, 1513) Pars III, ff. 129v-133v. The first modern edition is to be found in the work of Sisto (1971), see below. Recently, a new edition, together with a discussion of the work’s authorship has been provided by Damien Ruiz,  ‘Hugues de Digne, OMin., est-il l'auteur de la Disputatio inter zelatorem paupertatis et inimicum domesticum eivs? Étude et texte’,  AFH 95,3-4(2002), 267-350. This new edition based on MS Terni, Biblioteca Comunale, 179. If genuine, this would have been Hugh’s earliest works, and contains heavy criticisms of Franciscan superiors who accept a slackening of the Franciscan ideal, and allow the building of comfortable convents etc.. Strong emphasis on external poverty as a testimony to a truly internalised evangelical life. Several citations from Ambrose, Augustine, Jerome, and Bernard of Clairvaux. However, Damien Ruiz denies Hugh's authorship. See on this also the 2016 study of Felice Accrocca]

Expositio Regulae Fratrum Minorum. Received several editions (in the same collections that contain the Disputatio inter Zelatorem Paupertatis et Inimicum Domesticum Eius). The latest edition is: Hugh of Digne's Rule Commentary, ed. David Flood, Spicilegium Bonaventurianum, 14 (Grottaferrata, 1979). For an English translation, see: Flood, David (ed.) Early Commentaries on the Rule of the Friars Minor: 1242 Commentary, Hugh of Digne, David of Augsburg, John of Wales, Early Commentaries on the Rule of the Friars Minor, 1 (St. Bonaventure, NY: Franciscan Institute Publications, St. Bonaventure University, 2014). [This Expositio strongly builds on the famous Expositio Quatuor Magistorum, but provides a far more complete rule commentary. See the analysis of Poulenc, DSpir VII, 877-879 & the introduction of David Flood in his edition and translation of the text.]

Hugo de Hertilpoll (Hugo de Hergilpol/Hugh of Hartlepool, d. 1304)

English friar and theologian. Born in Hartlepool (Northumberland), where he probably joined the Franciscans. Received his theological education at Oxford. In 1282, the widow Devorguilla made Hugh (and the secular master William of Menyl) proctor of the newly founded Balliol college (cf. H. Salter, The Oxford Deeds of Balliol College, 277-279). In 1287, Hugh succeeded his fellow friar Walter of Knolle as regent master at the Franciscan studium of Oxford. Three Quaestiones Disputatae from his regency period do survive (in MS Assisi Bib. Com. 158, which contains many questions pertaining to the Franciscan (and non Franciscan) academic activities at Oxford during the 1280s and 1290s). To him is also ascribed an edited Sentences Commentary (?). Around 1291, Hugh handed over his chair to another friar, but he remained active at Oxford, especially as university preacher (attested university sermons by Hugh on 25 January, 2 February, and 20 April (Good Friday) 1291. The last sermon has survived completely in MS Worcester Cathedral Q 46 ff. 159v-162. Cf. Little & Pelster, Oxford Theology and Theologians, 156, 157, 192-204 ). Before 1299, Hugh became the 14th provincial minister of the English province (succeeding Roger Marston). Together with a socius, Hugh took part in the general chapter of Lyon (April 1299). The following year (7 August 1300), Hugh presented 22 friars at the Oxford convent to the bishop of Lincoln, from whom they received authorization to hear conffession. As provincial minister, Hugh took an active stance in the interpretation and implementation of Boniface VIII’s Super Cathedram. His diplomatic services were sought by the Lincoln parliament and by the English King Edward I, who used him as embassador at Rome during the peace negociations with France (September 1302). After 1302, while still provincial minister, Hugh probably stayed in Italy. In all likelyhood, he took part in the general chapter of Assisi, where he died in 1304 (and not in September 1302, as is stated by Sbaralea). He was buried in the Franciscan church of Assisi. Thereafter, he was suceeded as provincial of England by Adam of Lincoln (27 October 1304).

Hugo Panziera (Pantiera/Ugo da Prato, d. ca. 1330)

Italian friar from Tuscany. Probably entered the Franciscan order at the Volterra convent, after some years of theological study. Apparently Hugo did not want to move beyond the status of conversus. He was for some time active at the Franciscan convent of Prato, where he is listed (in 1295) among the members of the Confraternità della Croce/del Ceppo. In this contex, he probably wrote his 25 Laudi, which recall those of Jacapone da Todi. Around 1307, Hugo left Italy and travelled to the vicariate of Tartaria orientalis. In 1312, is is found in the Pera-Galata convent of Constantinople (centre of the Tartaria Orientalis vicariate). There he finished the final version of his Divota espistola (…) for the Prato del Ceppo confraternity, as well as the other parts of his Trattati Spirituali, which consist of ca. fourteen different texts (see below). He probably died in Pera-Galata around 1330.

Hugo Vardeus (Hugh Ward/Aodh Buidhe Mac an Bhaird, 1592–1635)

Irish Franciscan friar and historian. Born in Donegal in the Mac an Bhaird family (hereditary poets of the O'Donnells clan of Tirconaill). After an initial education within the family home, he traveled to the Irish College in Salamanca, Spain in 1612. Four years later he joined the Francican order there, and he continued his education until the early 1620s. In March, 1622 the Irish province made Hugh Ward a philosophy teacher at the Irish St Anthony College in Louvain. During his overland journey to Louvain, he stayed for a while at Paris, where he worked together with Francis de Arriba, confessor of the queen of France. Once in Louvain, Hugh Ward began to collaborate with the Irish Franciscans Patrick Fleming and Hugh MacCaughwell, who all shared Hugh Ward’s interest in collecting Irish saints lives. Ward, Fleming and MacCaughwell would spend much of their life collaborating on collecting materials, after Fleming’s death in 1631 also assisted by John Colgan and others (including Hugh’s brother Ferdinand Ward, and the friars Micheál Ó Cléirigh, Thomas Fleming, Florence Conry, and Robert Chamberlain). Alongside of these collecting and editorial activities, which led to various publications on a number of Irish saints, and also led to collaboration with the Bollandists, Hugh Ward continued teaching philosophy and also theology. In addition, he was appointed guardian of the St Anthony friary in April 1626, but with the stipulation that he was authorized to do research in Libraries in France, the Southern Low Countries and Germany. Eventually, much of Hugh Ward’s collecting and editorial activities bore fruit only after his death. His own administrative duties and health problems prevented him from publishing the bulk of it during his lifetime. Hence his book on Saint Romoald was issued after Hugh’s death by Thomas Sirinus in 1662. More importantly, several volumes of an envisaged but never fully completed multi-volume work on Irish history and hagiography, issued as the Acta sanctorum veteris et maioris Scotiae, seu, Hiberniae sanctorum insulae and the Triadis thaumaturgae by John Colgan' in and after 1645 were heavily based on Hugh Ward’s labors. Hugh Ward died on 8 November 1635, the feast day of John Duns Scotus, at the age of 43.

Hyacinthus Olpensis (Jacinto de Olp, 1647-1695)

Capuchin friar from Olp (Lérida). Took the Capuchin habit in 1666 in the Catalonia province. After his ordination and subsequent studies, he was appointed lector/professor of philosophy and theology. When, at the provincial chapter of Barcelona (1682), it was made obligatory to teach the doctrine of Bonaventure, Olp was approached to write a manual of Bonaventurean philosophy and theology. This led between 1691 and 1698 to the publication of a three-volume work: Cursus philosophicus ad mentem Seraphici Doctoris Divi Bonaventurae, the last volume of which was published posthumously, three years after Olp's sudden death on 19 May 1695 in Barcelona.
