Jacobus Capelli (Jacobus de Capellis/Mediolanensis/de Mediolano, mid-13th century?)

Franciscan theologian and inquisitor. Lector of theology of Milan and alledged composer of a Summa Contra Hereticos (between 1240-1260), against the Cathars of Lombardy, and 52 Conciones Quadragesimale. In the past, there was some doubt as to whether Jacobus Capelli (known for the Summa and the Sermones)and Jacob of Milan (the author of the Stimulus Amoris) were one and the same person. Now, they are seen to be two different persons.

Jacobus Dacianus (Jacobo Daciano/Iacobus Gottorpius/Jakob den Danske, 1484-1566)

Danish friar (possibly natural son of the Danish King). He entered the Franciscan Order at a young age, and went through the order’s school network, studying Latin, Greek and Hebrew (alongside of German and Danish). He was active in the Malmö friary (present-day Sweden). There he prached and argued against Lutheranism. A few years later, in 1530, the Franciscans were driven out of the friary by the Lutherans. Jacob described this expulsion and the flight from Scandinavia (in his expulsion chronicle, which was written to provide evidence iof the friars’ possessions in view of a possible return at a later date. Apparently, Jacob stayed in Denmark until the final Lutheran takeover of Malmö in 1536. Thereafter, he and many other friars with him went into exile. At first he traveled to Mecklenburg under the protection of Duke Albrecht who had fought for the Catholics in the civil war. In Mecklenburg, Jacob was appointed (the last) provincial minister of the Franciscan Dacia province. Soon after, Jacob moved to Spain, and shortly before or in 1540, he received royal permission to depart for New Spain. In 1542 Jacob arrived in Veracruz, Mexico, never to return. He studied a number of indigenous languages (spending three years at the Colegio de Santa Cruz de Tlatelolco studying Nahuatl), before receiving a misionary station at Michoacán to work among the native Purhépecha. He learned the Purhépecha language and became active as a missionary. Almost from the beginning, he lobbied for indigenous rights. Soon, this caused friction with the civil authorities of New Spain, as well as with fellow friars (including Juan de Gaona), order superiors and secular clergymen. Jacob is famous for his Declamación del pueblo bárbaro de los Indios que habiendo recibido el bautismo, desean recibir los demas sacramentos (ca. 1550-1553), in which he maintained that converted indigenous people should be given the opportunity to be ordained into the priesthood. He was forced to do penitence for this position, also because he had maintained that a church that did not allow the baptized Indians from the New World to participate fully in all the other sacraments was not a truly apostolic church and a in fact a body engaged in a form of heresy. After numerous years as a missionary, Jacob died in the Tarecuato friary Michoacán, in the bishopric of Zamora, where he had been appointed guardian.

Jacobus de Aesculo (Jacobus de Esquillo/Giacomo d’Ascoli, early fourteenth century), Doctor profundus

Active as magister theologiae in Paris ca. 1309. Follower of Duns Scotus and engaged in polemics against those who tried to harmonize the teachings of Thomas and Duns (like Robert of Cowton.). Was asked to participate as a counsellor in the process against Marguerite of Porète (cf. CHUP III, 660). Regent master at Paris between 1310-1311. Took part in the discussions concerning Franciscan poverty with Gonsalvo of Balboa, who had been asked to explain the Franciscan poverty position at the Council of Vienne by Clement V. Giacomo was one of the composers of the Conventual Responsio, directed against the Rotulus written by Ubertino of Casale. Was a member of the committee that prepared the statement condemning the works of Olivi and issuing rules concerning the Conventual approach towards Olivi’s writings and his cult (leading up to the exhumation and burning of Olivi’s bones in 1318). Known to have composed a Sentences commentary, biblical commentaries and quodlibetal questions, as well as an index on the works of John Duns Scotus (Tabula Scoti).

Jacobus de Carceto (Jacobus de Quarcheto/de Kaisneto/Jacques de Quesnoy, fl. end 13thcent.)

French friar from Parvillers-Le Quesnoy (Northern France), where he joined the Friars Minor. Taught at Paris in the last decade of the thirteenth century, where he reached the magisterium theologiae, and acted as regent ca.1290-1292. He still figures as master of theology in June 1303, when he refused to support a summon of the French king Philippe le Bel to sign a document directed against pope Boniface VIII, as a result of which Quesnoy (together with John Duns Scotus and a range of other Parisian masters who also refused to sign) had to leave France within three days. Once upon a time it seemed that no writings of Quesnoy had survived, but it seems that the Sentences Commentary of Vital du Four (Rome BAV Lat. 1085) is a very close adaptation of that of Quesnoy, who was Vital du Four’s teacher at Paris. Doucet has provided arguments to assign to Quesnoy some quodlibetal questions. Yet these are sometimes also attributed to Raymond Rigaud and/or Jacob of Ascoli (MS Padua, Antonianum 426 & MS Todi, Biblioteca Comunale 98). In a forthcoming article, Sylvain Piron will argue that an ascription to Raymond Rigaud is the most plausible option.

Jacobus de Marchia (Giacomo della Marca/Domenico Gangali, 1393, Monteprandone - 1476, Naples), Sanctified in 1726 (feast day 28 November)

OMObs. Born in Monteprandone (Ascoli Piceno).Entered the Observant branche of the Franciscan order c. 1415/16 near Assisi (at the convent of S. Maria degli Angeli) after studies of the liberal arts at Ascoli, and studies of canon and civil law at the university of Perugia. Took his profession under the name of Giacomo on August 1, 1416. Studied theology with John Capistran under Bernardine of Siena and was active as popular preacher in Toscane, Umbria and the Marsh of Ancona from ca. 1426 onwards (first sermon held in 1420 near Florence, on the feast day of Anthony of Padua), until 1467 [Cf. the autograph MS BAV Vat.Lat. 7780 f. 1v: ‘Ego frater Iacobus de Monteprandone ordinis minorum etate viginto duorum annorum in nomine Domini ingressus sum in [ordinem] sancti Francisci de mense julii 1416. Et incepi predicare in festo sancti Antonii de Padua in sancto Salvatore prope Florentiam 1420. Et dimisi predicationem in festo sancti Bernardini de mense madii 1467, manu propria; habens etatem septuaginta quinque annorum’ After May1467 Giacomo did no longer embark on large preaching trips, yet it would seem that he did continue to preach locally on sun- and feast days (in the S. Maria La Nuova at Naples. In the same manuscript BAV Vat.Lat 7780, Giacomo states (f.70v): ‘Tria sunt necessaria ad conmendationem veri predicatoris: primo, vita bona; 2, doctrina salutifera et assidua; 3, proles sancta et fecunda.’ In his sermon in honour of S. Bernardino, these qualifications of the preacher are elaborated further (ed. D. Pacetti, AFH 36 (1943), 84ff.: Tria debet habere predicator, videlicet: vitam bonam, doctrinam salutiferam, et perseverantiam. a) Primo, vita bona (…) In verbo(…) Secundo, exemplo (…) Tertio, opere (…) Ideo dicit Ecclesia: ‘iste est qui magnas virtutes operatus est, et omnis terra doctrina eius repleta est.’ b) Secundo, doctrina salutifera. S. Franciscus declarat hanc doctrinam salutiferam in capitulo nono Regule, dicens: ‘Moneo quoque et exortor eosdem fratres, ut in predicatione quam faciunt sint examinata et casta eorum eloquia, ad utilitatem et edificationem populi, annuntiando eis vitia et virtutes, penam et gloriam.’ Hic ponit S. Franciscus duo notabilia. Primum notabile, quod predicatores ante predicationem debent examinare eorum eloquia, quod sint casta sicut eloquia Dei; Psalmus [11,7]‘Salvum me fac: Eloquia Domini eloquia casta: argentum igne examinatum, purgatum septuplum.’ Id est septem examinationes quas debet habere predicator veritatis: Prima, quod non sit in eius verbis aliquod verbum contra fidem. Secundo, non scandalizosum contra proximum, verbis simulatis infamando aliquem,vel ex invidia vel odio unus predicator contra alium, quia tales depredicationibus Dei effecti sunt predicatores blasfemie. (…) Tertio, quod non predicet per avaritiam vel per salarium. S. Paulus nolebat quod fierent collectas in predicatione (…) Quarto, non predicet adulando, ut placeat populo. Unde Ysaie (…) Quinto, non predicent res inutiles sibi et populo. Unde Ysidorus(…). Sexto, non predicent subtilia, que non possunt capi a populo, sed ut se ostendat valentem hominem. Unde Ieronimus (…) Septimo, quod predicatio sua non sit contra seipsum cum mala vita. Unde Paulus ad Romanos 2 cap., 21-22, inquit: ‘Quid ergo alium doces, et te ipsum non doces? (…) Secundum notabile de S. Francisco. Quod sunt quatuor: Primum predicare contra vitia; secundum predicare virtutes; tertium penam; quartum gloriam vite eterne. c) Tertio, perseverantia. Numquam defecit expugnare divinas offensas; numquam defecit dirigere devios ad vitam eternam; numquam defecit defensare Ecclesiam Dei; numquam defecit manifestare gloriam Dei. Sicut Angelus in celo, et ille in terra: et ideo honoratus est coram Deo et hominibus (…)’)]. Active supporter of the Observantist cause, and generally regarded as one of the `pillars' of the Italian Observance. Known for his many preaching journeys, and his attempts to reform the morals of Italian city life. Founder of several lay confraternities and of institutions meant to subvert illegal money lending activities (so-called Montes Pietatis). Active as inquisitor (alongside of John of Capistran, against remnants of the fraticelli, in 1426, and independently in Hungary and Italy in 1436), crusade preacher against the Turcs, and commisioner of the order in Bosnia (1432), Hungary and Italy. He tried in vain to reconcile the conventuals and the observants on request of Calixtus III. In 1462 he became involved in a controvery around the veneration of the Blood of Christ with Jacob of Brescia OP. Eventually, Pope Pius II had to order both parties (both inquisitors) to keep silent on the subject. Giacomo was an avid book collector. His personal library counted no less than 185 manuscripts. See on this esp. the 1971 volume of Picenum Seraphicum, as well as the studies of Crivellucci (1889), Pagnani (1952), Boumann (1969), and Gattucci (1981). Giacomo died at Naples on 28 November 1476. Beatified in 1624 by Urban VIII and canonised in 1726 by Benedict XIII. Just like the other foremen of the Italian Observance, Giacomo left a large number of sermons, in which he developed his moral theology, expressed his themes of reform, and fulminated against the sins of his time (luxuria, vanitates mulierum, sodomia, ludi, usuria, etc.). On the basis of his own sermon manuscripts, written and compiled during his preaching career, Giacomo eventually distilled a more or less finalized series of Sermones Quadragesimales and Sermones Dominicales (Latin model sermons, following the main rules of the Artes Praedicandi, and no direct witnesses of his vernacular preachingstyle. For his preaching style, we might refer to the surviving reportationes of two sermons held at Padua in 1460). The Latin Sermones Dominicales have been edited by Lioi. The Sermones Quadragesimales still await their first critical edition. Alongside of his sermons, he engaged in the production of treatises (mostly reworked sermons) for the preparation of the sacrament of penance.

manuscripts

Many of his works are to be found in the MSS of the communal libraries of Monteprandone, Falconara, Modena, and Foligno, theVatican library, the S. Isidore library, the Bib. Naz. of Naples, the library of Venice, and the Oxford Bodleian library. An exhaustive listing of his works is made in Dionysius Lasic, De vita et operibus S. Iacobi de Marchia. Studium et Recensio Quorundam Textum (Falconara, 1974). On the basis of this list (and remarks by other scholars, we can mention the following genuine works (leaving aside Lasic’s list of dubious and spurious works):

Campus Florum (October 1450): Monteprandone 45. Cf. Lasic, De Vita et Operibus, 182 & R. Lioi, Picenum Seraphicum 7 (1970), 111-177. [A kind of confession manuel/‘dizionario giuridico-morale’, compiled with recourse to many canonist and theological authorities, with specific attention for themes (such as blasphemia, confessio, matrimonium, ornatus mulierum, usura, etc.) that are also dealt with in the sermon cycles of Giacomo.]

Compendium Theologiae Moralis (April 1442): MS Oxford Bodleian Library cod. Lat.Can. Misc. 262 ff. 1-222. Cf. Lasic, De Vita et Operibus, 183 & R. Lioi, Picenum Seraphicum 7 (1970), 111-177. [Very akin to the Campus Florum (possibly a first version of the Campus) and predominantly based on the works of Petrus Quesvel.]

Summula Iuridico-moralis : Cf. Lasic, De Vita et Operibus, 183 [Moral theological summa for confession and instruction purposes (meant for (incumbent) priests, with guidelines for consecration of the altar, the rites of baptism, rules for confession, papal dispensations, excommunication]

Sermones Quadragesimales : MS Foligno Biblioteca Comunale C.A.IX.i.ii (Cod. II, 103 sermons. Cf. R. Lioi, ‘I ‘Sermones Quadragesimales’ di S. G. della Marca in un codice della Biblioteca comunale di Foligno’, Annali del Pontificio Istituto Superiore Scienze e Lettere S. Chiara 10 (1960), 37-137); MS Rome, Biblioteca Angelica 187 (cf.

Iacobi de Marchia in cod. Vat.lat. 7780 et 7642 asservati’, AFH 63 (1970), 476-565 (516-565).

Sermones Domenicales. Aside from the various Monteprandone manuscripts (‘autograph’ manuscripts [an ongoing discussion!]) mentioned further down below that contain many sermon skeletons that found their way in the final versions of Giacomo’s cycle of sermones domenicales), and more in particular MS Monteprandone, Archivio Municipale 38 (Cf. the introduction to Lioi’s edition of the Sermones dominicales), we can point at MS Naples, Naz.

On f. 2v-3r can be found an alphabetical index to the sermons, making it extremely useful a a guide for thematic preaching. Among the 98 topics listed in this alphabetical index (Lasic, 479-480), which refer to the 85 sermons in the manuscripts, the following are directly geared to straightforward catechistic issues (although many of the other items in the list touch on comparable themes of moral and religious instruction, and on social issues that were the hallmark of Observant preaching and have connections with the guidebooks for living a Christian life that stem from the same period): De baptismo (refers to sermon on f. 78r), De confessione (refers to sermon on f. 253r-v), De conscientia (refers to sermon on ff. 222v-224v), De Corpore Christi (refers to sermons on ff. 102v-104v, ff. 105r-109r).

For purposes of basic religious instruction, we might single out several sermons, namely sermon 25 for Dominica Le: De Sacramento Confessionis [which contains ‘sex articulos utilissimos’ (quid est penitentia (interpreted as the sacrament of penance or confession, consisting of the contritio cordis, confessio oris et satisfactio operis), qualiter debet se preparare ad confessionem (ten ways to prepare oneself), utrum necesse sit confiteri circumstantias (reaching back to the popular ‘versus’: quis, que, ubi, per quos, quotiens, cur, quomodo, quando, quilibet observet anime medicamina dando), ut sit preceptum confiteri peccata (showing that that the confession of sins is a preceptum divinum et apostolicum), quot modis non est quis absolutus (19 cases in which absolution can not begranted), utrum sit absolutus de quibus sacerdos non habet auctoritatem (interesting point in the face of the conflicts between mendicants and secular priests, and implicitly walking a fine line between basing sacramental efficacy totally on the priest’s function and his personal merit (in)validating the sacrament.)]; sermon 49 for Dominica 5a pro Pasca: De septem petitionibus et oratione dominica [which deals with the fact that the Pater noster as oratio perfecta contains ‘tria meritoria’, namely the orationis breviatio, the benevolentie captatio, and a honesta conclusio petitionum. Giacomo makes clear from the outset that the concise nature of the Pater Noster agrees with the apostolic statement ‘verbum abreviatum fecit Deum super terram (which also, as we have seen, plays a role in the Franciscan attitude to/theory of preaching). In fact (II, 258): ‘Nulla quippe oratio tam brevis in tota divina Scriptura reperiri potest, nec tam sancta sicut sanctum Pater noster. Et hoc ex multis de causis. Primo, ut ab omnibus sciatur; secundo, ut melius memoretur; tertio, ut frequenter dicatur; quarto, ut orans tedio non afficiatur; quinto, ut nemo de eius ignorantia excusetur; sexto, ut Dominus cito exaudire ostendatur; septimo, ut magis corde quam ore legi debeatur.’ After the section in the benevolentie captatio, which deals with the approach of God in the statement Pater noster qui es in caelis, Giacomo analyses at large the meaning of the seven petitiones included in the Pater noster text (‘Tertia vero principalis continet septem petitiones, videlicet: prima, Patris honorificationem; secunda,sui glorificationem, ibi: adveniat; tertia, divine voluntatis, ibi: fiat voluntas tua; quarta, necessitatum corporalium subventionem, ibi: panem; quinta, peccatorum remissionem, ibi: dimictenobis; sexta, temptationis ansiationem, ibi: et ne nos;septima, a morte eterna liberationem, ibi: sed libera nos.’]; sermon 81 for Dominica 15: De doctrina puerorum [dealing in seven articles with: qualiter instruendi sint pueri circa fidem et sacramenta, qualiter instruendi sint circa sensus, qualiter instruendi sint circa potum et cibum, qualiter instruendi sint circa coniugia, qualiter instruendi sint circa ludum gestum et vestitum, qualiter instruendi sint circa societatem. The first article urges (III, 145): ‘Primo, erudire illos de articulis fidei, ut sint veri christiani et discernantur a paganis. (…) continetur quod patres spirituales et matres tenentur docere filios suos spirituales cognoscere Deum, servare castitatem, diligere iustitiam, tenere caritatem et Pater noster et articulos fidei eosdem perfecte docere.

Et in hoc multum videntur pater et mater cum maiorem curam habeant circa porcellum quam circa filios (…) Tertio debent docere eos super omnia Deum timere, Deum amare, Deum cognoscere et ipsum sequi (…)’ In this, as in the other articles, Giacomo unfolds a proverbial Observant Franciscan program of education, reminiscent of the larger contemporary Observant treatises that dealt with such issues.]

Rusconi, ‘Opuscoli per la practica penitenziale’, 205: ‘…ai peccatori che si vogliano preparare in maniera adeguata alla confessione sacramentale viene presentata, in sostanza, una griglia di tutti i peccati possibili: dapprima i sette peccati capitali, poi le violazioni dei dieci comandamenti, i peccati contro i cinque sensi corporali, i dodici articoli della fede, i sette sacramenti, le sette opere della misericordia corporale e quelle della misericordia spirituale, le tre virtù teologali ed i cinque doni dello Spirito Santo. La confessione vera e propria è in questa Regola limitata ad un ‘dico mia colpa’ confinato nel verso dell’ultima carta dell’edizione.’

Jacobus de Milano/Jacobus Mediolanensis (late 13th-early 14th century)

Italian friar. Not sure whether the author should be identified with the Jacobus Mediolanensis who was lector at Milan in the late thirteenth century, as is claimed in De Conformitate (AF IV, 341). The most recent literature tend to negate this identification. Our Jacob is the author of the famous Stimulus Amoris (the oldest (shorter version) of which has survived in more than 90 mss, whereas a later (longer) redaction would have survived in more than 130 mss), centered on the love for and imitation of Christ, adoration of the Virgin, and the contemplation and union with God. The work, which stands in a Bonaventurean tradition, was predominantly meant for literate lay people and female religious, as a kind of spiritual vade mecum. The oldest (short) version contains 23 chapters. Chapters 1-3 describe the necessary predisposition of body and soul to enable meditative progress and to please God. Chapters 4-9 describe/analyse the ways leading to true contemplation (repentance, compassion with the suffering Christ, true desire to be with God etc.), and describe how the soul gets enflamed with the love of/for God. Chapters 10-15 number the necessities of the contemplative soul (esp. recourse to the Passion of Christ). Chapters 16-23 give additional details on the means to arrive at perfection.

The Stimulus Amoris used to be ascribed to Henri of Beaume (d. 1439) and Bonaventure, and can be found in the editions of the collected works of the latter. The work was lenghtened, reworked and translated several times, a.o. a glossed translation by Walter Hilton (d. 1395), entitled The Goad of Love (edited as The Goad of Love. An Unpublished Translation of the Stimulus Amoris (London, 1952). See on the many other vernacular translations in manuscripts and early printings Ruh, Geschichte der abendländischen Mystik, II, 442 & Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke IV, no. 4820-4832.

Jacobus de Molfetta (Giacomo Biancolini-Pancotto/Giacomo Paniscotti, 1489-1561)

OFMObs & OFMCap. Italian friar. Entered the Observant branch in 1509, to pass to the Capuchins of the Bari province in 1536. Famous for his lengthy preaching tours throughout the Italian peninsula, in which he came up sor social justice (strong critic of civic authorities that suppressed the poor; founder of montes pietatis) as well as doctrinal purity (‘hammer of the heretics’). Died at the Mesagna convent of Brindisi in 1561. During his lifetime, Giacomo published several works that, in the form of a dialogue, deal with major issues of moral and doctrinal theology, and apparently were first and foremost aimed at the conversion of Jews.

editions

Giacomo Biancolini-Pancotto, Opus in Expositione Psalmi ‘Domine quis habitat’ (Venice: aedibus Aurelii Pincii, 1535) [provides a clear introduction on catholic doctrine regarding the immaculate conception, (original) sin, the divine laws and their foundation for natural and human law, condemnation of usury, etc. Many issues are dealt with in the form of a dialogue between David and Salomon. Apparently, the New Testament, the church fathers, and other christian theologians are not mentioned by name. It has been suggested that the work therefore might have been first and foremost directed at Jews.]

Giacomo Biancolini-Pancotto, Opus de S. Fidei Articulis Dialogo (Venice: Aedibus Aurelii Pincii, 1535) [Dialogue between an apostle and a philosopher on the principal truths of religion and the errors of mankind. This work too seems to have been geared to the conversion of Jews. Special attention is given to the Christian mysteries (such as the eucharist etc.) and to the last judgment.]

Jacobus de Molfetta, I Divini Precetti dall’Angelo a Moisè Divinamente Dati e per il Verbo Incarnato Giesú Figliuolo di Dio apertissimamente dichiarati, e dalla Chiesa santa catholica approvati e confirmati, per il V.P. Frate Giacopo di Melfitto dell’ordine di Cappuccini di san Francesco (Venice, 1543/1548/1562/1570/1575). Parts connected with the first and the fifth commandments are printed in I Frati Cappuccini. Documenti e testimonianze del primo secolo III/2, ed. C.Cargnoni (Perugia, 1991), 3301-3333 [Amounts to a reworking of his first work, and explains that the evangelical law and the law of nature coincide. Hence the observance of natural law and the law of Moses consists in following the evangelical precepts, which therefore is a debitum for every Christian. Yet, the world still is full of sins, showing that many people do not adhere to these precepts. To mend this, the author presents in systhematic fashion the evangelical preceps taught by the son of God and approved and confirmed by the Catholic Church. In all, the work presents 40 precepts contained in the Ten Commandments and the teachings of Christ. Also makes clear that ‘Gli prelati, padri spirituali, padri e madre carnali, maestri, compari e comari sono obligati insegnare alli suoi figliuoli gli precetti della legge, gli articoli della fede e segnarsi del segno della croce e il Padre nostro’ (Cited from I Frati Cappuccini.

Jacobus de Tastera (Jacobo de Testera, fl. 16th cent.)

OFM. Born in Bayonne (France) in a noble family. He entered the Franciscan order around 1500 and subsequently made his way Spain, first to Seville and later to the court of Charles V, where he became a palace priest. In 1527, he encountered Antonio de Ciudad Rodrigo, who convinced him to become a missionary in New Spain (Mexico), where Tastera arrived in 1529. He soon was appalled by the treatment of indigenous people (also witnessed the beating to death of the indigenous ruler of Tacubaya by Diego Delgadillo, who was outraged that the man in question was not able/willing to provide him with a sufficient number of workers to finish his palace). For a while, Tastera was the socius of Bishop Zumárraga, but later he became a full-blown missionary, working together with Pedro de Gante (Peter van Gent/Peter of Ghent), and like him Tastera produced catechistic materials for the natives, concentrating on rebus-like image-catechisms (hence the so-called Testerian codices). He also worked with Toribio de Benavente (Motolinia) and he befriended Bartolomé de las Casas. In the course of his missionary career, Tastera worked in Michoacán, Atlixco, and thereafter in Yucatán (Maya) and Huejotzinco (Nahua population), where he spent the last years of his life.

Jacobus de Valencia (Diego de Valencia/Diego Moxena, ca. 1350-after 1324)

Spanish friar. Important theologian and controversialist. Probably has to be identified with Diego Moxena. Originated from Valencia de Alcántara in the Cáceres province (and not from Valencia de Don Juan in the Léon province). Yet active at the convent of Léon as bachelor to teach the Sentences in and after 1375. This implies that he previously had gone through the lectorate program, which would put his date of birth around 1350 or shortly before). In 1378, he receives permission to pursue a theology degree at a studium generale. Not known when he reached the magisterium, yet he was one of the candidates for a theology chair at the University of Salamanca in 1410. If the identification with Diego Moxena is correct, he played a significant role during the later phases of the great schism and at the Council of Constance. In 1414, Diego Moxena abandoned the party of Benedict XIII (with whom he had close relations since 1405), to support the conciliarists. He also would have convinced king Ferdinand I of Aragon to do the same. At the council, Moxena raised charges of heresy against Hus concerning the latter’s position on the Trinity and the Incarnation. When Moxena eventually was disappointed with the choice of Martin V, he changed camps, running back to Benedict XIII.

Diego de Valencia/Diego Moxena has left a considerable and varied literary legacy. Under the name of Diego de Valencia, he is the author, and partly the destinator, of a range of poems that later were assembled in the Cancionero of Juan Alfonso de Baena, which is one of the most important Castilian poetic anthologies of the early fifteenth century. Juan Alfonso de Baena calls Diego a ‘muy grant letrado e grant maestro en todas les artes liberales’, and a ‘muy grant fisico, astrólogo e mecánico, tando e tan mucho que en su tiempo non se falló omne tan fundado en todas ciencias como él’ (Cancionero no. 473), as well as a ‘maestro muy famoso en la santa teologia’ (Cancionero no. 519). Under the name Diego Moxena, he has left a range of theological works, religious songs,as well as works that have a bearing on the conciliar movement during the council of Constance.

Jacobus Fuhrer (fl. first half 16th cent.)

OFM. Born in Zwickau, he studied for his order at the University of Wittenberg, where he was Baccalaureus Biblicus (29 August, 1518), Baccalaureus Sententiarum (early 1521) and Baccalaureus Formatus (by 22 November of that same year). In the mean time, he came under the influence of Lutheranism. Luther apparently mentioned him in a letter of 3 October 1519, calling him a modest man of a superior mind. To take him away from these Lutheran influences, his order superiors sent Jacob to the St. Jacobus Monastery in Breslau, and from there to Löwenberg. Yet Jacob Fuhrer continued to express his reformist ideas to fellow friars and lay people in his preaching. Eventually, the order asked him to retract his points of view, whereupon Jacob left the order. When the Franciscan friars were forced to leave the town of Löwenberg, the city council asked Jacob Fuhrer to stay on and to provide religious services and sermons in the former Franciscan church. He can be traced there until 1545. Works?

Jacobus Oddi de Perugia (Giacomo Oddi di Perugia, d. 1488)

OFMOBS. Born in Perugia, early 15th century.Influential merchant, until he entered the Franciscan OBS in 1448, after an Eastern sermon of friar Robert Caraccioli de Lecce (!). Several times guardian of the Sta Maria degli Angeli convent of Assisi (1453, 1458), the convent of Perugia (1460) and that of Terni (1474-1477, 1483). Died at the convent of Monterupido in Perugia on March 6, 1488. Produced in the Umbrian dialect a Specchio de l'ordine minore or La Franceschina (ca. 1474), which is a collection of saints’ lives and legendaries for edifying purposes (meant for his fellow friars of the Umbrian province). The work is heavily dependent upon the Chronica XXIV Generalium, Angelo Clareno’s Historia Septem Tribulationum, and (predominantly) De Conformitate of Bartholomew of Pisa. Giacomo presented the history of the Observant movement as the continuation of the spiritual quest to keep alive the primitive Franciscan ideals. After three prologues and a preface celebrating Francis’ providential vocation, his life, the evangelical character of his Rule, and the evangelical lifestyle of the primitive fraternity, the work tends to present in thirteen chapters or books (in accordance with the first group of Friars (Francis and his twelve compagnions) a full palet of various Franciscan figures and Franciscan virtues (chapters 1-11 deal with negation of the wordly ways, obedience, poverty, chastety, charity, the spirit of prayer, the spirit of humility, patience, penitence, the other virtues and the negation of the self Chapters 12-13 deal with the punishment of the wayward and the recompensation of the true followers of the Franciscan rule). Very exemplary approach; heavy emphasis on importance of visions and apparitions. Several sixteenth century manuscripts contain series of meaningful illustrations (reproduced in the critical edition of Cavanna). Jérome Poulenc writes in his lemma on Giacomo in Dspir VIII, 51-52: ‘Vivant témoignage de la manière dont étaient proposées et comprises les valeurs du franciscanisme au niveau de l’existence quotidienne des couvents de l’Observance en Ombrie au cours des 15e et 16e siècles, La Franceschina apporte nombre d’élements pouvant servir à l’étude de la mentalité et des modes d’expression dans lesquels se moulait la spiritualité de ce groupe de religieux. A ce titre elle mérite certainement de retenir l’attention.’

Jacobus Senensis (Jacobus de’Tolomei de Siena, 1323-1390)

Italian friar from Montalcino (near Siena), theologian, inquisitor, bischop of Narni (1378-1383), Chiusi (1383-1384) and Grosseta (from 1384 onwards). Entered the order in 1337, at the age of 14. Was ordained priest on 21 December 1342. Thereafter sent to Bologna (1345) and Paris (1346) for his lectorate course. Came back to Italy to teach theology at Padua, Florence, Siena, and Assisi. On 15 November 1366 he obtained the grade of master of theology. Afterwards, he fulfilled several administrative and inquisitorial positions at the provincial level: custodian of the Florentine custody in 1360, and of the Siena custody in 1362. Between 1364 and 1367 he was inquisitor for Tuscany, a function he fulfilled for the Siena area in 1371. Appointed bishop of Narni in 1378. As bishop under the obedience of pope UrbanVI, he had to struggle against the partisans of the Avignon papacy of Clemens VII. In order to curtail the activities of the remaining Michaelists (partisans of the former minisster general Michael of Cesena), he prompted Andrea Ricci de Firenze to compile a Tractatus contra Fraticellos. Jacob was transferred to the episcopal see of Chiusi in 1383, and to the see of Grosseta in 1384. Died in the latter diocese in Catiglione della Pascaia, sometime in June 1390. Most information on Jacob’s life and works is derived from a short, but interesting autobiography (BAV MS Arch. S. Pietro F 32 f. 351v), which also contains details on the Tuscan order province during the fourteenth century (until 1371).

Jacobus Tresanti (Jacobus de Trisanctis/Jacobus Petrisancti/Trisanto/Grisanto, c. 1265- after 1320 (1340?))

Italian friar, originating from a family of notaries in Tresanti (Montespertoli, near Florence). Entered the order at the convent of S. Francesco di Castelfiorentino (Florence custody). Active as lector in the St. Croce convent of Florence (at least in the years 1298-1301),where he produced for his students a compilatory commentary on the Sentences (lectura compilata super 4 libros Sententiarum).This work is an assemblation of positions of (predominantly Parisian) Franciscan doctors. He follows closely the systems of Bonaventure and Richard of Mediavila, the authors he used most. Only in book 4 does he cite Duns Scotus. Cenci (DHGE XXVI, 755) argues that Jacob was exposed to the teachings of these authorities during his own four-year lectorate studies at the Paris studium generale (probably in the late 1280s or the early 1290s).The work therefore might reflect both Jacob’s own lectorate studies and his subsequent teaching activities at the St. Croce convent. (See Cenci, 1993, 119-128 for further info on content and structure of the Lectura). He produced a series of Quadragesimal sermons (32 according to Bartholomew of Pisa, 42 according to Mariano of Florence, 12 according to others). A collection of these was kept at a Venetian seminary in 1878. Thereafter, this manuscript disappears from sight. Maybe some of his sermons survived in other manuscripts (see below). Cenci also ascribes to him a series of Sermones de Festis et de Sanctis found in MS Florence BN Conv. Soppr. G.1.861A (maybe gathered by Jacob at the end of his life, maybe copied and adapted by friar Paolo Boncagnida Peruga), which attest to his preaching activities between 1305 and 1313 in several towns of central Italy (Arezzo, Volterra, Assisi (?). [Cf. Cenci, 1993, 122: ‘Comme lettore-predicatore fr. Giacomo fu certamente in diversi conventi della provincia, qualche volta lascia intuire la città dove predica. Così a ff. 103r-105v per S. Giusto a Volterra (3 sermoni); a ff. 158v-160v per S. Donato ad Arezzo; dopo di che fu estratto un fascicolo, dove c’erano i sermoni per S.Chiara, l’Assunta e (se c’era) S. Lodovico d’Angio. Per ogni santo compose tre sermoni; tre per la traslazione di S. Francesco, 7 per la sua festa.’]. Jacob probably died shortly after 1320, and was buried in the convent church of the Poor Clares of Castelfiorentino, where he probably had been active as confessor during his last years (he appears as a witness in notarial acts at Castelfiorentino from August 1313 onwards, which indicates that he was a member of the Franciscan friary there).

Jacobus Wyg (fl. c.1500)

German friar from Colmar, Augsburg, or Zengg (Croatia). Nothing is known about his life. What we do know is that he produced a German printed edition of the Breviarium Romanum on request of the Croatian nobleman Christoph Frangepan, count of Zengg and Madrus, and his Augsburg wife Apollonia. On f. 629v of this German edition, we can read that the work was ‘gecorrigiert, quotiert, und in ein sollige ordnung gesetzt’ by ‘brueder Jacob Wyg barfueser ordens von Kolmar.’ (Yet Jacob can not be found in the Tabulae Capitulares, nor in the necrologies of the Strasburg Franciscan province). The German edition, which was printed in 400 copies, contains a full German translation of the complete Roman Breviary, with the exception of the office for Mary and the office for the dead [This in contrast with another, comparable, German translation of the Breviary, which also is of ‘Franciscan’ provenance, namely the Teutsch Roemisch Brevier vast Nutzlich und Trostlich (Augsburg: Alexander Weyssenhorn, 1535), produced for Poor Clares]. The work of Jacob predominantly means to provide people (and esp. women) who can not read Latin access to the standard breviary materials. Jacob apparently reached back to already existing German translations of the Psalter and the Hymns [cf. the remarks by Christine Stöllinger-Löser in VL 2nded., X 1466].

Jacopone da Todi (Jacopone de Tuderto/Iacopo dei Benedetti, ca. 1228, Todi - 1306, Collazone) beatus

Italian friar. Born at Todi (Umbria), where he became active as a lawyer/notary. Allegedly because of the brutal death of his young wife, Jacopone radically changed his life; living for some time as a lay penitent before joining a Franciscan tertiary group. Eventually, in 1278, he entered the first order, where he might have become priest by 1287. Jacopone quickly became involved with the Spirituals and their cause for poverty and Church reform; he even signed a declaration which asked for the deposition of Boniface VIII and the convocation of a general council. As a result, he was excommunicated and confined to Palestrina. He was released by Benedict XI in 1303 to retire near the Poor Clares of S. Lorenzo at Collazzone (near Todi), where he probably died in December 1306. Jacopone is famous for his 92 to 102 vernacular Laude spirituali (dealing with all kinds of moral, spiritual and mystical issues, and matters pertaining to Franciscan poverty and discipline) as well as for his letters (such as the Latin letter to Giovanni della Verna, which includes one of his vernacular laude (lauda 63)), and several Latin prose works (such as the Tractatus, and Dicta (or Verba), the attribution of which still keeps some scholars in doubt, although they betray a strong affinity with the vernacular works and to some extent represent older versions of the vernacular texts. See on these issues especially the studies and editions of Menestò (1979)). Jacopone might also be the author of the Stabat Mater, even though some present-day scholars would like to attribute this sequens to an unknown contemporary Franciscan friar or to Bonaventure.

Enrico Menestò, Giuseppe Cremascoli & Mauro Donnini, Edizione Nazionale dei Testi Mediolatini d'Italia, 37. Serie I, 21 (Florence: SISMEL-Edizioni del Galluzzo, 2015). The work received three printed editions in the sixteenth century (Venice, 1537; Venice, 1543 & Louvain, 1554) and a series of modern editions (prior to the editions of Menestò’s c.s. from 1979 and 2015), albeit it was frequently attributed to other friars, such as Rizzerio da Muccia. The work later received an Italian adaptation (possibly by Feo Balcari). This vernacular version also received several editions, a.o. by E. Boehmer, in ‘Iacopone da Todi. Prosastücke von ihm, nebst Angaben über Manuscripte, Drucke und Uebersetzungen seiner Schriften’, Romanische Studien 1(1871), 123-162. Menestò makes a strong case for Jacopone’s authorship of the Latin Tractatus, pointing at the strong parallels with the Laude. The major theme of the Tractatus, which is heavily inspired by the Mystica Theologia of (Pseudo) Dionysius, puts full emphasis on love for God, and stresses the need for abandoning all attention and love for intermediate objects (ed. Menestò, 75ff): ‘Quicumque vult ad veritatis cognitionem brevi et recto tramite pervenire et pacem perfecte in anima possidere, oportet quod totaliter se expropriet ab amore omnis creature et etiam sui ipsius, ut totaliter se in Deum proiciat, non reservans sibi aliquid, nec etiam tempus, ut nihil per proprium sensum sibi provideat, quin semper sit dispositus et subiectus et paratus ducatui divino et vocationi ipsius.’ (…) ‘Sed postquam anima se totaliter expropriat ab omni amore creato et habet veram paupertatem spiritus cordaliter, quia non delectatur in aliqua creatura, tunc trahitur et impletur ab amore divino, in quem se totaliter proiecit. Et si postea redeant ad animam ista media que reliquerat, non possunt eam intrare, quia plena est domus et hospitium iam captum est ab ipso divino amore et ligati sunt omnes affectus.’ (…) ‘Igitur utillimum valde ac saluberrimum est ut omnia media eiciamus de anima et expropriemus nos et moriamur omnibus rebus creatis et totaliter desperemus de nobis, et de omnibus creaturis et proiciamus nos confidenter in Deum, qui benigne nos suscipiet, amorose gubernabit et perducet ad finem beatum.’

Verba Fratris Iacobi de Tuderto , ed. E. Menestò (Bologna, 1979), 173-183. The Latin text has received various other modern editions. See for instance Iacopone da Todi, Laudi, Trattato e Detti, ed. F. Ageno, 413-427 (replete with Italian translation); Tractatus utilissimus; Verba ed. Giuseppe Cremascoli, Mauro Donnini & Enrico Menestò (Spoleto: CISAM, 2015); Tractatus utilissimus. Verba, ed. Enrico Menestò, Giuseppe Cremascoli & Mauro Donnini, Edizione Nazionale dei Testi Mediolatini d'Italia, 37. Serie I, 21 (Florence: SISMEL-Edizioni del Galluzzo, 2015). Cf. review by Daniele Solvi, Studi Francescani 113:1-2 (2016), 637. The latin text was in circulation shortly after the death of Jacopone. In 1385, Bartolomeo da Pisa incorporated them in his Liber de Conformitate (AF IV (1906), 236-299). Several versions of the Latin text, as well as some vernacular adaptations appeared thereafter (a.o. in the Franceschina, and in the works of Mariano da Firenze, Marco of Lisbon and Wadding). See for these texts in hagiographical accounts on Jacopone Le vite antiche di Iacopone da Todi, ed. Enrico Menestò (Florence, 1977). The original medieval vernacular version also has received several early modern and modern editions, a.o. by E. Boehmer (Iacopone da Todi, 1871) and Arrigo Levasti (Mistici del Duecento e del Trecento, 1935). In his Verba, Jacopone deals with the soul’s union with God. [The Verba or Dicta of Jacopone can be compared with many other Dicta and Detti of friar Leo, Egidio, Conrad of Offica, and others. See on this especially Clasen, Legenda Antiqua, xii-xxxii, as well as Stanislao da Campagnola, Francesco d’Assisi nei suoi scritti e nelle sue biografie dei secoli xiii-xiv (Assisi, 1977), passim. A good impression of Jacopone’s ‘negative’ approach to spiritual perfection is found in the Verba or Dicta II, III, IV, and V (ed. Menestò, 175ff): ‘(III) Sicut amor sui est causa et radix omnium vitiorum et malorum et enervatio omnium virtutum, sic et odium sui est origo et fundamentum omnium virtutum et deletio vitiorum. Unde deberet homo non tantum se odire, sed deberet velle ab omnibus odiri. (…) Et quia ex hac cognitione sui ducitur in cognitionem veritatis, incipit amare veritatem, non tantum in se, sed in omnibus. (…) Ex hoc etiam acquiritur despectus sui et omnis virtus et omne bonum: nam per hoc senties in anima radicari prudentiam, fortitudinem, temperantiam et iustitiam et ceteras virtutes et maxime triplicem patientiam. Unde per hoc venitur ad quietem anime.’; ‘(IV) Tres sunt anime status. In primo habet anima cognitionem suorum peccatorum et lacrimas compunctionis que ducunt eam prope desperationem. In secundo transit ad considerandam redemptionem Salvatoris, in quo habet lacrimas compassionis ad Christum. In tertio transit ad amorem, et iste status habet tres partes: in prima, scilicet in sui principio, incohat amare et habet lacrimas devotionis; in secunda parte id est in perseverantia huius status, augetur amor et habet lacrimas simplices, quia sunt sine violentia et nescit quare sibi obveniunt; in tertia parte, que dicitur status consummatus, stat anima in atriis Domini et gustat de vita eterna et perdit lacrimas.’; ‘(V) Anima habet quattuor pugnas, scilicat extra se, iuxta se, intra se et supra se. Primam, que est extra se, habet cum mundo. Hec vincitur non amando res mundi (…) Secundam pugnam, que est iuxta se, habet cum sensibus corporis (…) Tertiam pugnam, que est intra se, habet anima cum affectionibus sive passionibus suis, que sunt gaudium, spes, timor et dolor (…) Quartam pugnam, que est supra se, et est maior omnium predictarum, habet anima cum Deo hoc modo: quia assumit magnam et arduam sollicitudinem tenere se cum Deo. Et considerans se factam ad eius imaginem et similitudinem et quod Deus vult hospitari in ea, toto suo conamine cavet ne aliquid in se recipiat quod offendat oculos maiestatis divine, et etiam ne exeat ad aliquid quod displiceat Deo.’]

(?) Stabat Mater, edited in Analecta hymnica medii aevi, ed. Guido Maria Dreves, 55 Vols. (Leipzig, 1886-1922) LIV, 312-318 & (a slightly different version) in Guido Maria Dreves, Ein Jahrtausend lateinischer Hymnendichtung, 2 Vols. (Leipzig, 1909) II, 390-392. The Stabat Mater had an immense popularity during the closing centuries of the Middle Ages and thereafter. It also received versions in most European vernaculars. For an overview of the manuscript versions surviving in French (replete with an edition), see Richard O’Gorman, ‘The Stabat Mater in Middle French Verse: An Edition of Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale, fr. 24865’, Franciscan Studies 52 (1992), 191-201.

Joannes Adriaens vander Goude (ca. 1506 - after 1556)

OFM. Apparently born in Gouda, The Netherlands. Possibly to be identified with the student listed at Louvain University on 29 August 1521 and on 4 April 1523 as being of slender means and taken in by the Standonck Pedagogium. Joannes Adriaens became a friar in the Southern Low Countries and in the 1550s lived in Mechelen (Malines). It is there that he finishes in 1553 Een gouden Cyborie and in 1556 Dat Symbolum des heyligen kersten geloofs.

editions

Een gouden cyborie des weerdigen H. Sacraments des outaers. In welcke dat allen simpelen ende ongheleerden menschen ghetoont wort, die warachticheyt ende weerdicheyt des heylighen Sacraments, met veel schoone ende profitelijcke leeringhen, allen Christen menschen grootelijck van noode. Ghemaect ende tsamen verghadert van broeder Ian Adriaens, van der Goude, Minrebroeder tot Mechelen (Antwerp: Simon Cock, 1553). The work was written in response to Protestant attacks on the Catholic Eucharist doctrine and provides in five parts (tracttaetkens) what Christians have to know and understand about the sacrament.

Dat Symbolum des heyligen kersten geloofs, int latijn gheintituleert Quicunque vult salvus esse: bescreven vanden heylighen Bisschop Athanasius ende uutgeleyt in onse duytsche tale, duer broeder Ian Adriaens, van der Goude, Minrebroeder tot Mechelen (Antwerp: Gregorius De Bonte, 1556). After a prologue,which also relates Athanasius's persecution, the work provides in two parts explications about the Trinity and about Christ's humanity.

Joannes Aegidius de Zamora (Juan Gil de Zamora, ca. 1241/1250 - ca. 1318)

Spanish friar: encyclopaedist, historiographer, educator. Born at Zamora (c. 1241/1250), as a member of a naristocrat family. Might have engaged in (artes) studies at the University of Salamanca before he joined the Friars Minor. Might even have received some of the minor orders and lived in Madrid around 1266 before he took the Franciscan habit (cf. the edition of the Vita Sancti Isidori Agricolae). After joining the Friars Minor (c. 1269), he studied for some years theology at Paris. Possibly between 1273-1277 [proposals for a later date have been made in recent literature]. Gill's education in Paris probably implied a full lectorate course and not a course leading to the magisterium, as is sometimes said in the available studies. Cf. Introduction of M. de Castro, De Praeconiis Hispaniae, LXII-LXVIII; the error is made possible by the exaggerated self-representation of Gil), where he worked under Raymond Gaufredi and also witnessed Bonaventure’s lectures on the Collationes in Hexaemeron. Taught in Toulouse and, after his return to Spain, in the Franciscan studium of Zamora. Kept up his contacts with Raymond Gaufredi (to whom Gil dedicated his Contra Venena) and with Roger Bacon. Became involved in educational and diplomatic activities at the court of Alfonso X of Castilia. Was charged with the education of the ‘infante’ Sancho (the later Sancho IV/Sanchez IV), for whom he later wrote De Praeconiis Hispaniae (between 1278 and 1282). Throughout, Gil was very much part of the scientific culture of the Castilian court, with its historiographical, medical, linguistical and geographical interests.[same was true for his fellow franciscan Pedro Gallego]. Later in life, Gil was active as custos of the Zamora custody, and as provincial minister (c. 1300). He died after 1318. Gil was a prolific author in his own right. He wrote for instance: Liber illustrium personarum qui et historiae canonicae et civilis (videlicet patriarchum. prophetarum. apostolorum, et evangelistarum, martyrum et confessorum, virginum et viduarum et aliarum sanctarum personarum; Proslogion seu Tractatus de Accentu et de Dubitabilibus Bibliae (on the difficulties when reading the Bible, de Archivus seu Armarium Scripturarum; Historia naturalis, ecclesiastica et civilis (a full-blown encyclopaedia); the Liber de Jesu et Maria (MS, see Stegmüller); Officium Almifluae Virginis; De preconiis Hispanie (a historical and geographical manual-annex princes mirror for the education of Sancho); Contra Venena et Animalia Venenosa; poems, hagiograhical and biographical writings.

manuscripts

Several autograph manuscripts of Gil that were kept in the Zamora convent did not survive the reduction of the monasteries in 1835. Several copies made during the early eighteenth century by the Franciscan guardian Miguel Ordoñez (copies that themselves seem have disappeared as well) were used by Francisco Mendez and Enrique Florez for the compilation of their España Sagrada (MS Madrid Bib. Nac. 2763), which provides a listing of Gil’s oeuvre. On the basis of that list, and on the basis of other manuscript collections and bibliographical guides, the following provisional list can be made:

Proslogion seu Tractatus de Accentu et de Dubitabilibus : Merville, Chateau cod.14 (N. 778); Paris Nat. Lat. 5234; Todi, Bib. Communal, 114 (XIV) etc.

It is a big, alphabetically organised encyclopedia on people, animals, minerals etc. with a clear moral and homiletic intent. It is much bigger than the popular De Proprietatibus Rerum of Bartholomaeus Anglicus]

Joannes ab Angelis (Juan de Los Angeles/Juan Martínez, ca. 1536 - 1609, Madrid)

OFMDisc. Spanish friar. Theologian and important mystical/spiritual author, who incorporated much of the pre-existing Franciscan mystical tradition in his own works. Born in Corchuela (Toledo), he obtained his first education in Latin, Greek and Hebrew in the schools of Oropesa. Joined the Franciscans in the San Gabriel province but soon transferred to the Descalzos in the San José province, where he made his solemn profession before 1562. Possibly theology studies afterwards in Salamanca before he became a lector (1565-1571) in the San Juan Bautista friary of Zamora. Between 1572 and 1576 he was in Madrid as socius of Nicolás Factor, confessor of the Descalzas Reales convent, and later as socius/assistent of Antonio de Segura, guardian of the Madrilene San Bernardino friary. In this period he also embarked on large preaching journeys throughout Spain, to Portugal, but also elsewhere (Rome, Paris). In 1580, he was back in Zamora, where he became active as convent preacher. This was followed up by an assignment as provincial definitor for the San José province, residing again in the San Bernardino friary of Madrid. He became involved with the foundaton of the San Diego friary of Seville and stayed there between 1589 and 1592, after which he moved for some time to Portugal. Back in Madrid in 1593, he acted as visitator for the San Juan Bautista province of Valencia, and in 1594 he became guardian of the San Antonio friary of Guadalajara. In 1598 he became guardian of the San Bernardino friary of Madrid and also visitator of the San Gabriel province. He took part in the general chapter of Rome (May 1600), to become provincial minister of the San José province in 1601. Sometime thereafter, he also became confessor of the Descalzas Reales of Madrid and Royal court preacher, which enticed him to give up his provincialate position. He died in the Descalzas Reales convent in 1609. Author of a wide range of spiritual works in the Spanish vernacular.

Johannes Alphart ( Basel - 1492, Munich)

OFMObs. Son of a Baker in Basel. Franciscan Observant and renowned preacher. Three times provincial vicar of the Observants in upper Germany (Provincia Argentinensis de Observantia, 1474-77, 1481-84, 1487-1490), promotor of (and preacher to) Poor Clares and female tertiary communities. Stood at the basis of the Observant reforms in Munich (1480), Ulm, and elsewhere. Died in Munich, on 15 June, 1492. His (vernacular) sermons have survived in several manuscripts.

manuscripts/editions

One sermon has been edited by Lucidius Verschueren in Franziskanische Studien,15 (1928), 121-125, and another one by Landmann in Franziskanische Studien, 15 (1928), 320-322. The first of these sermons, found in MS Munich Staatsbibliothek. Codex Germ. 5140 ff. 317b-322b, can probably be traced to a female monastery, and the editor Verschueren thinks the sermon itself was originally held for regular Franciscan tertiaries. The sermon probably was held between 1487 and 1490. The following extracts (pp. 122-125 in Verschueren’s edition), give a good impresson of its contents: ‘Uff das Ewangelio von den zehen sünder siechen, als Lucas schribt am xvii [Lucas17, 11-19], wie die alle gesund wurden, und es kam nün ainer zü dem hern, was danckbar, und der her sprach: stand uff und gang hin. Da sind zway stuck, die ainen yeden menschen nottürfftig sind zü dem ewigen leben. Das erst, das ergang uff den berg der tugent ains gütten leben. (…) So das nit gnüg ist, volgt hernah: gang hin; verstand, zü übung gütter werck. (…) Und bey dem ersten ist zü mercken, das drii ding hindert den menschen am uff ston von den sünden. Das erst ist die angeborn naiglikait zü den sunden. (…) Das ander ist der begirlikait zü zeitlichen dingen. (…) Das dritt ist die rü der schowung und sines aigen gevallens.

Bey dem andern so er spricht: Gang, da sind nun geng zü mercken als da schribt Jordanus, die der mensch sol gan, so der her spricht: Gang. Sü dem ersten spricht gott zü dem menschen: Gang usz mir durch die Schöpfung. Spricht augustin: Es sind alle creaturen gewesen in gott bildlich als ain huus (…) Züm andern spricht gott: gang von mir durch haltung der gebott und volbringung mins willens und wolgevallens in gütten wergken.

Joannes Angelus Terzonis de Legonissa (Giovanni-Angelo Terzoni/Giovanni-Angelo de Leonessa, fl. later fifteenth cent.)

Friar resident in the Leonessa convent (in the neighbourhood of Rieti). Known as the author of the Opus Davidicum, which tries to make a case for a biblical lineage of the French royal dynasty. As an answer to manifold attempts of seeking a Troyan ancestry for European royal families, the author tries to trace the French royal family back to the times of David, King of Israel. The work exploits Jewish messianistic expectations, and is linked to the Italian expedition of King Charles VIII (1496-1498), which the author saw as the beginning of a restoration of royal power in the Kingdom of Naples and the Holy Land.

Joannes Pellens (Leodius, ca. 1538-1604)

OFM From Luik. Was a member of the Franciscan community in Antwerp, where he was ordained acolite and subdeacon on 19-20 December 1561. Later, if we can believe Henricus Sedulius, who probably knew him personally, Pellens was guardian in the Franciscan friary of Deventer between 1569 and 1578 (when that friary was forced to close down). Subsequently lector in Louvain (1578-1589?) and in 1589 (from 1589 onwards). Between 1591 until his death on September 23, 1604, he was confessor of the Antwerp Poor Clares. Although Sedulius described Lippens as a nearly timid and studious friar, steeped in Hebrew, Greek and Latin, he was well-respected by the Antwerp Poor Clares as their confessor, whose abbess in 1599 even wrote to the Franciscan provincial chapter to avoid his replacement by another friar [‘...na dat hij nu 8 jaren het ambt des bichtvaders seer loffelijck hadde bedient, soo scheen daer apparentie dat de oversten in het aenstaende cappittel, eenen anderen bichtvader voor de nonnekens van sin waeren te ordonneren, 't welck als de Abdisse Cornelia vernomen hadde soo schreef sij eenen brief aende paters vant capittel, - mits den welcken sy beneerstight heeft, dat den man godts in sijnen dienst ghecontinueert heeft tot in het jear 1604 als wanneer hij uyt dese werelt verscheede...‘, Fundatieboek, MS St. Truiden, Prov. Archive OFM M 11, p. 507 & cited in De Troeyer (1969), 347.]. Pellens wrote two Latin laudatory Epigramma for the works of Matthias Felisius (Matthias Cats), as well as a lengthy, three-volume De virtutibus theologicis Fide, Spe et Charitate, which was never printed and apparently survived in manuscript format in the possession of Henricus Sedulius and later, by 1650, in the Franciscan provincial archive of Brussels, where it was probably destroyed in the bombardments of 1695.

manuscripts

Annihilatio Triplicis Funiculi Innominati Haeretici: Prague, National Museum XVG 4 (3609) (late 15th cent.)

Vade mecum in tribulatione, a no longer existant 'prophecy' about the end of Bohemian Ultraquism. We know about its existence through a parody made by an anonymous Utraquist, who sought to discredit the mendicants, ridiculing them for going around barefoot or in sloppy sandals.

Vocabularius dictus Lactifer (Plze, 1511). See the 2003 and 2012 studies of Hana Šedinová, which indicate that this is a peculiar combination of a vocabulary (first part) and a sort of natural encyclopedia divided in nine books on human monsters, illnesses, trees, herbs, stones, birds, four-legged animals, fish, snakes and worms. The fourth book (De monstruosis hominibus) deals with 'abnormal' humans, both 'real' and mythological, predominantly taken from classical and medieval sources (Herodotus, Odoricus da Pordenone, Marco Polo, contemporary merchant reports). This section includes alleged peculiar eating habits of Asian and African peoples and of mythological 'humanoids' who live on the odor of flowers and fruits alone, live on seeds via a second mouth cavity above the normal mouth, and several types of canibals.

Joannes Augustinus Morfeus (Juan Agustín Morfi, fl. 17th cent.)

Spanish Franciscan friar. Active in Latin America. Born in Galicia in 1720 and known to have taught theology in the Colegio de la Santa Cruz de Tlatelolco. Between August 1777 and February 1778 he joined the commander and governor Teodoro de la Croix on a journey through the various internal provinces along the Northern ranges of Spanish Mexico (Hidalgo, Querétaro, Guanajuato, Jalisco, Aguascalientes, Zacatecas, Durango, Coahuila, Texas), to collect information on the state of affairs in those regions. In 1782 he celebrated his lectorate jubilee and the following year he was found as guardian of the Convento Grande de San Francisco de México, where he died almost immediately. He is known for his Diario y derrotero (1777-1781), which he wrote in part during a sojourn in Arizpe (Sonora county), and in which he noted his experiences during his travels with Teodoro de la Croix, exhibiting severe criticism concerning the Spanish latifundia system, which according to him was in part responsible for the socio-economic stagnatoon of Spanish Mexico.

Joannes Baptista d’Ajaccio (1754-1820)

OFMCap from Corsica. Preacher and important local historian. Born in Ajaccio (Corsica) in a family with ties with the French civil service and the French army. Went to school at the Jesuite college in Ajaccio, and entered the Capuchin order at Luri (1770; profession at Sta. Reparata on 3 May 1771). Embarked on a career as preacher on Corsica, and became active as guardian of the Ajccio convent and as provincial diffinitor. Refusing to abide by the 1791 Constitution Civile du Clergé, he emigrated to Italy, where he entered in the service of the bishop of Arezzo. In 1793, he became active as an agent for the apostolic see in France. In 1807, he obtained the status of secular cleric and returned as preacher to Corsica, where he ended up as secretary of Letizia Ramolino-Bonaparte. Died at Livorno.

Joannes Baptista Fasolus (Giovanni Battista Fasolo, ca. 1598-1664)

OFMConv. Franciscan friar from Asti. Known as an organist, conductor and composer. In 1645, he issued an organ manual for those working in small parish churches, the Annuale che contiene tutto quello, che deve far un Organista per risponder al Choro tutto l'Anno, Opera Ottava. Four years later, he became maestro di cappella in service of the Archbishop of Monreale, near Palermo. He was also active as an organist for the Duomo of Palermo, where Bonaventura Aleotti was one of his disciples. For a long time, many secular pieces of Fasolo were attributed to other composers, including the Venetian composer Francesco Manelli, but nowadays a number of works have been assigned back to Fasolo, thanks in particular to the studies of Francesco Luisi, Mariangela Donà, and Claudio Bacciagaluppi (see the literature below).

Joannes Baptista Gaby (fl. late 17th cent.)

OFM. Guardian of the Loches friary and missionary in Senegal. In 1689, he published a Relation de la Nigritie contenant une exacte description de ses royaumes et de leurs gouvernements, la religion, les moeurs, coustumes etc. (Paris: Couterot, 1689). In 1968, an older, thus far unedited text by Chambineau was discovered, which showed that Jean Baptiste Gaby’s work was an almost complete plagiarization.

Joannes Baptista Reggianus (Giambattista/Giovanni Battista Reggiani da S. Felice, fl. 17th cent.)

OFMConv. Born in Massa. He fulfilled his noviciate in Modena, did his first philosophical and theological studies in Perugia to start his advanced theological education at the Collegium S. Bonaventurae in Rome in 1655. Subsequently lector in Ferrara, Cesena, and Vienna. Provincial minister of Hungary in 1664 (as the successor of Pietro Feice da Tolentino, who had died in office). Reggiani apparently fulfilled his obligations so well, that he was several times re-elected in this position, spending nearly 30 years in Hungary, with sort Italian intermissions, in the face of the ongoing military operations of and against the Ottomans (which also implied the destruction and necessary rebuilding of several friaries), and in the face of the presence of Lutheran, Calvinist and Anabapist factions (at least according to Franciscana order chronicles), in the context of which Giovanni Battista Reggiani organized a number of missionary activities.

Joannes Baptista Viñones (Juan Battista Viñones, c. 1480-1550)

OFMObs. Spanish friar. Born in Sevilla in a well-to-do family. Studied civil and canon law, becoming doctor utriusque iuris, and embarking on a lawyer career. After 1507, he took the habit as lay friar of the Guadalcanal convent (near Sevilla) in the Los Angeles custody (which was turned into a province in 1517). In 1510, his example was followed by his friend, the medical doctor Bernardino de Laredo. Not much is known of Viñones's religious life. He seems to have belonged to a group of alumbrados.He died at the Guadalcanal convent in 1550. Interesting, however, is that Joannes Baptista is mentioned as the author or editor of the Espejo de conciencia para todos los estados. However, there are other candidates for the authorship of the text, such as friar Juan de Argumanes (from the Santiago de Compostella province) and the biblical scholar Gutierro de Trejo. The Espejo de conciencia is, in any case, the most influential book of moral practice in Spain during the sixteenth century.

editions

The first edition of the work appeared as the Espejo de conciencia que trata de todos los estados assí eclesiásticos como seglares para regir y examinar las conciencias (Salamanca, 1498 (2x)). This early date would suggest that at least this first edition was not written by Juan Battista Viñones. However, later editions, which bear the name of Viñones appeared under the title Espejo de la conciencia para todos los estados (Logroño, 1507/Sevilla, 1512/Toledo, 1513/Sevilla, 1514/Sevilla, 1516/Logroño, 1516/Badajoz, 1520/Segovia, 1525/Toledo, 1525/Sevilla, 1531/Sevilla, 1536/ Sevilla, 1543/Sevilla, 1548/Medina del Campo, 1552/s.l., 1568) [The Espejo,which bears some resemblance with the Speculum Aureum of Henry of Herp, consists of three main parts. The first part (116 chapters) deals with the obligations of rulers, bishops, priests, doctors etc, focusing on moral and religious issues, like: love of God and subjects, maintaining the Sunday as day of rest, moral and religious obligations with regard to social and commercial life etc.. The second part (37 chapters) deals with just and unjust forms of warfare, as well as with theft and restitution.The third part (24 chapters) deals with matters like confession, the qualities of the confessor, exemptions, and sins on various occasions. In an appendix,the work deals with matters like excommunication. Viñones’ major sources are Bonaventure and the Pseudo-Bonaventurean tradition, Alexander of Hales, Henry of Suso, Antonio de Firenze (and comparable authors). The vocabulary in the Espejo reflects some impact of the emerging alumbrados tradition. As such, the work might have influenced spiritual authors like Diego Murillo, Juan de Los Angeles, and Alonso de Madrid].

Joannes Bartholomaeus (Jean Barthelemy, fl. ca. 1460)

Franciscan friar; entered the order at Soissons ca. 1446. In 1450 he was active in the convent of Rouen, where he preached during Lent in the presence of Raoul Rousselli, archbishop of Rouen. The archbishop denounced Jean Barthelemy at the University of Paris in August1451, as the latter would have upheld in Rouen mendicant preaching and confession privileges (in accordance with the bull Omnis Utriusque Sexus), to the detriment of the authority of secular prelates. At that moment in time John was bachelor at the Paris studium. After John’s explications, the Gallican, Picardian and German nations rejected the allegations, so that John could after some delay proceed to his licentiate in theology (notwithstanding further attempts by the archbishop of Rouen to enlist the support of the papal legate Guillaume d’Estouteville for a further denunciation of the friar). John received his licence on May 22, 1452 and became master of theology on 16 October of the same year [Cf. CHUP IV, 708 no. 2680 & 709 no. 2682; Paris, BN Lat. 5657a f. 21v]. From 1452 onwards, Jean embarked on an impressive homiletic career, preaching a.o. in Nantes (1452, 1459), Nevers (1462), and Tours (1466) [Cf. the study of Martin]. Also active as spiritual counsellor of the Poor Clares of Longchamps. After his death at Paris, the provinces of Burgundy as well as the Grand Couvent de Paris laid claim to Jean’s books. The parlement of Paris passed the verdict that the books should be divided between the two [cf. the study of Beaumont-Maillet]. Most of Jean’s surviving spiritual works were written after his higher theological studies, and predominantly when he became involved with the spiritual guidance of the Poor Clares of Longchamps. His surviving spiritrual works testify to his activities as confessor and spiritual counsellor of the Poor Clares, providing them with a host of devotional themes (on the Passion, the Sacred Heart, the Sacrements), spiritual exercises, prayer explications and the like (firmly grounded in the affective theological tradition of Bernard of Clairvaux and Bonaventure).

Johannes Barwick (John Barwick, ca. 1260- ca. 1330?)

Franciscan friar and theologian. Possibly from the North of Enghland. As a student he entered the Franciscans at Oxford, and after his theological studies, he became the 22nd theology lector there on January 6, 1291. He is listed as a convent preacher in the same year. After becoming magister theologiae (also around 1291), he probably lectured on the Sentences in Paris. Later in life, he was a member of the Stamford friary, where he was licensed to hear confessions on 27 August 1300. He probably died in that convent in the 1320s or shortly thereafter. As an advanced bachelor and lecturer in Oxford, Barwick might have encountered the young Scotus (who arrived in the Franciscan convent there in 1290). Aside from a sermon and a fragment of his commentary on the Third Book of the Sentences of Lombard, no works of Barwick seem to have survived. He is referred to in the work of some fourteenth-century theologians. According to Bale, Barwick was also the author of a treatise De formis, and a collection of astrological predictions.

Joannes Benedicti (Jean Benedicti, fl. second half 16th cent.)

Observant French friar, who took his profession in the Franciscan friary of Ancenis, and studied at the study house of the Notre-Dame-des-Anges friary (Touraine province). Possibly secretary to the Franciscan minister general Christophe de Cheffontaines in the early 1570s, provincial minister, general commissarius for his order, theology lector and preacher (and exorcist) at Lyon and elsewhere from 1574 onwards until ca. 1584. In the midst of this, he apparently went on a Jeruzalem pilgrimage in 1581. Active in the Baumette friary (Anjou) in 1586. He died in or after 1595. He is foremost known for a confession manual: La somme des pechez et le remede d'icevx, the first edition of which dates from 1584. Jean was responsible for several updated versions, and after his death the work apparently was used at the Parisian theology faculty for teaching moral theology. Yet he also wrote a work on the way how the Virgin Mary expelled a number of demons from demoniacs in the Franciscan Church of Lyon. At the end of that work, Benedicti also included an exorcism formula that he had obtained from Italy and that had first been printed at Bologna in 1578. Are we dealing here with a text based on the exorcism manuals of Menghi?

Joannes Bilhemius (Jan Bijl van Leuven/Byl/Bijlkens, d. 2 November 1540)

OMObs. Born in Louvain. Joined the Observant friars and served as guardian in various convents (such as Mechelen and Amsterdam). In 1529, he was elected as the first provincial minister of the Lower Germany province. During his guardianship in Amsterdam, Bijl communicated some doubts about the propriety of the Moria to Erasmus, but in such a gentle manner that Erasmus did answer him in a friendly fashion (Allen, Ep. 749, 1518). According to a letter from Maarten van Dorp to Erasmus (Allen, Ep. 1044, November 1519), the same Bijl was known for his learning and his admiration for Erasmus. Bijl wrote several works, which remained unpublished, and apparently are lost.

 Johannes Bloemendal de Colonia (Joannes Blontiades/de Colonia, fl. ca. 1330)

Active in the Cologne region in the early fourteenth century as lector and preacher. Must have had a profound theological education. Not known whether he reached the magisterium. Compiled, in the wake of his activities as lector in Cologne (and the Curia studium of Avignon during the pontificate of John XXII?) a range of sermons and biblical commentaries, and possibly also an Opusculum Correctionis Textus et Prologorum Biblie, a Tractatus de Posituris, short treatises on the theological significance of Christ’s Passion, commentaries on Biblical hymns and songs, the Credo, and the Pater Noster. Several of the latter works are also ascribed to a contemporary Joannes Coloniensis. Maybe he and Joannes Bloemendal are one and the same friar. He should not be identified with the fifteenth-century friar John of Cologne, known for his Quaestiones Magistrales on Scotus.

He should probably also not be identified with yet another Franciscan friar sometimes named John of Cologne, namely Joannes de Sancto Laurentio/Johannes Coloniensis (fl. ca. 1350?), the author of the Postilla Evangeliorum found for instance in MS Leipzig, Universitätsbibl. 684.

Joannes Boucher (late 16th-early 17th cent.)

OFMConv (with Observantist leanings). French friar, probably from the Mans diocese. Entered the order in or around 1578. Became an internationally renowned preacher, not only in France and Italy, but also in Jerusalem and in other parts of the Middle East. From ca. 1612 onwards, he is back in France, fulfilling the office of guardian of the conventual house at Mans until 1618. Thereafter, his preaching career takes him to Paris and other French towns. In this period, he also becomes more and more active as a religious author. He died at Mans in or after 1631.

Johannes Bourcelli (Jan van Beersele/Jan van Nijmegen, fl. late fifteenth-early sixteenth cent.?)

OFMObs. There is confusion about the identity of the Dutch friar to whom is ascribed a Directorium Brevissimum/Contemplativorum. The work itself is almost identical with the first Collation of Henry of Herp’s Theologia Mystica, and had a substantial impact on its own (cf. a.o. the spiritual works of Benedict of Canfield OFMCap (d.1610) and Fulgentius Bottens OFM (d. 1717)). Candidates for this reworking/abbreviation of Henry’s work are 1.) Jan van Nijmegen (guardian (1515) and procurator (1520) of the Cleve convent, who figures in the necrology of the Cologne province. Cf. Rhenania franciscana. Unsere Toten II (Düsseldorf, 1941), 84); 2.) Jan van Beersele (guardian of the Brussels convent (1482); cf. Brussels, Archives Sainte-Gudule MS Reg. 1395 f. 386); 3.) Jan van Beersele/Jean Bourcelli, auxiliary bishop of Liege (Luik, d. 1504). M. Viller (1922) suggests that Henry of Herp, as vicar of the Cologne Observant province (1470-1473), was the superior, as well as the spiritual guide of our compiler.

editions

Several sixteenth-century editions and translations of the Directorium do exist. Aside from that, the gist of the work (which is more or less identical with the first Collatio of Herp’s Theologia Mystica) can also be found in the critical editions of Herp’s works. See for instance his Spieghel der Volcomenheit, ed. L. Verschueren (Antwerp, 1931), I, 19-20, 53,57.

Joannes Braclaeus (John Brackley, fl. mid 15th cent.)

Friar John Brackley was apparently a spiritual counsellor of the English Paston family of Norfolk in the mid-fifteenth century. Thirteen of his fourteen extant letters were addressed to John Paston I. The other one was addressed to John’s brother, William Paston II. Several of these letters were written in a form of macaronic Latin, and probably were close to his preaching style.

Joannes Bremer (Johannes Bremer, fifteenth century)

German friar and theologian. Studied in Oxford. Lector secundarius in the Franciscan convent of Leipzig in 1420. The same year, he immatriculated at Leipzig university. Lector secundarius at Erfurt in 1424. In 1427, he immatriculated at Erfurt university, to read the Sentences, where he became doctor in theology in 1429, and taught there at a later stage as Sacrae Scripturae professor Ordinarius Fratrum Minorum Studii Erfordensis, as successor of Matthias Döring, with whom Bremer would write in 1431/2 a treatise against the Taborites (Procopius). Bremer's position as ordinarius at Erfurt als included obligations to preach, according to the statutes of the theological faculty of Erfurt, see: Meier, in: Antonianum, 11, p.444]. In 1434, he became alligned with Rostock university, but he returned to Erfurt shortly thereafter. In 1439, he became guardian of the Brunswick friary, to return again to Erfurt, to become again regent master of the Franciscan studium there in 1442. In 1444, the same year that the preached at Halberstadt, he taught at Goslar, and in 1445 he taught at Brunswick.

Aside from his (as yet unedited) Sentences commentary, which was produced before 1429 (especially inspired by the works of Bonaventure, Scotus and Francis of Meyronnes, yet more didactically and ecclesiologically oriented, and he defended the immaculate conception. Cf. remarks by Schlageter (2015)), he is known to have left at least four sermons (In Die Coenae (Leipzig, 1420), De Conceptione Mariae (Erfurt, 1424), De Duobus Testamentis & de Ave Maria (Halberstadt, 1444)), a small treatise De Officio Praedicationis, a Collatio Disputata circa Ecclesiam et Sacramenta (Liegnitz, August, 1442), a disputed question on the last ointment, two treatises on the blood of Christ, as well as a Quaestio magistralis de Sanguine Christi (Brunswick, 1455). The last three works are connected with the controversy around the ‘Wilsnacker Wunderblut’ [bleeding hosts]

Also of interest in this is Bremer's use of Bonaventure and Scotus.

Joannes Briesmann (first half 16th cent.)

Franciscan friar from the Saxony province who joined the Lutheran cause. He was a lector at the Wittenberg friary and became in 1522 doctor of theology. Subsequently, he held a preaching assignment in his native town Cottbus. By the end of the same year, he returned to Wittenberg and from 1523 onwards, he began to support the Lutheran cause with pamphlets and preaching. One of his pamphlet was addressed to the inhabitants of Cottbus and also attacked the positions of his Franciscan opponent Jakob Schwederich. In the Summer of 1523, he moved towards Prussia

Joannes Brixerius (Jean Brissy/Johannes Brixeus/Joannes de Brixia, d. 1445)

Lectured on the Sentences at Metz and Toul. Guardian and corrector of the Parisian convent. Received the licence of theology at Paris in 1395 [MS Paris BN Lat 5657-A, f. 11v; CHUP IV, 11]. In 1398, he voted for substraction of the French church from the obedience of pope Benedict XIII. Would have written a treatise in favor of the Observance and would have been involved with the decree concerning the Observance issued at the Council of Constance [cf. Wadding, Annales Minorum X, 249]. Later, he would support Eugenius IV against the Council of Basel. In 1423, he became confessor of the queen of France, Marie d’Anjou. Around the same time, he became provincial minister of the French province. He died at the Grand Couvent de Paris on 18 February 1445 and was buried in the convent’s chapter room.

Johannes Brugman (ca. 1400, Kempen-1473, Nijmegen)

OFMConv & OMObs. Friar from the Kempen region (Brabant, Low Countries). Popular preacher and reformer. Acquaintance of Dionysius the Carthusian. Johannes Brugman entered the Conventual Franciscans in the Den Bosch friary (provincia coloniensis). He studied at the studium generale of Paris (lectorate program). Thereafter active against the Observants, until a change of heart in 1445. Transferred to the Observants and went in 1447 to Mechelen (Malines), with the Cologne provincial minister to introduce the Observance. This was accomplished with substantial force, leading to protracted conflicts. Around this time, Brugman probably wrote his Speculum Imperfectionis. Between 1448 and 1450, Brugman was guardian at the Mechelen friary. Around this time, he also started to preach. During his first series of preaching trips (situated by Van den Hombergh between 1451 and 1456), Brugman visited the North-Eastern parts of the Low Countries and the adjacent parts of Lower Germany. In this period, he would have interiorized some elements of Modern Devotion teachings. In 1454, Brugman became guardian in the friary of Sluis, the most northern friary in the Franciscan provincia Franciae. Between June 1455 and Spring 1456 he traveled again. The next two years, betwween 1456 and 1458 he lectured theology at St. Omer (an important Observant studium). This was followed by a second period of travels as penitentiary preacher in the Rhine region, Holland and in Westphalia. In this period, he established his name as a popular preacher. In July/August 1462, while still active as a travelling preacher, he was made provincial vicar of the Observant Cologne province. In this position, he continued to stimulate the expansion of the Observance (establishing new Observant houses with local support of secular authorities proved to be a more successful procedure than trying to reform existing Franciscan Conventual houses). Due to exhaustion and possibly due to a stroke, he had to give up his vicatiate position (May 1464). He recovered enough to preach again: in these years he is known to have preached in a number of female religious houses. In 1467, he retired to the Observant friary of Nijmegen, where he died in June 1473. His literary production is big, containing (non-academic) theological works that bear connections with the Modern Devotion and the Observant reform, sermons, spiritual treatises, and popular categetical works.

editions

Sermones/Sermoenen. A range of Brugman’s (Dutch) sermons have been edited, especially those dating from the mid 1460s, most of which are carefully revised sermons meant for publication.They normally address female religious and show Brugman’s predilection for some 12th and 13th century theologians (notably Bernard of Clairvaux, Bonaventure, Thomas Aquinas, David of Augsburg, Ubertino of Casale) and for Ludolph of Saxony. See especially: Jan Brugman, Verspreide Sermoenen, ed. A. van Dijk, Klassieke Galerij, 41(Amsterdam-Antwerpen, 1948); Onuitgegeven sermoenen van Jan Brugman, O.F.M., ed. P. Grootens, Studien en Tekstuitgaven van Ons Geestelijk Erf, 8 (Tielt, 1948); Een onuitgegeven sermoen [+Littera ad Fratres Buscodenses], ed. A.W. Wijbrands, Archief Ned. Kerkgeschiedenis, 1(1885), 208-228; G. Feugen, ‘Een tot nu toe onbekend sermoen van Johannes Brugman’, Archief voor de Geschiedenis van het Aartsbisdom Utrecht 64 (1940), 322ff. [Jhesus clam in een scheppen ende voer over tmeer ende kwam in sine stat. Jhesus hadde vier steden (MS. Cologne, Stadtarchiv G.B. 8º 71)]. For the relationship between the sermons as found in the manucripts and in the editions, see the study of Mertens (2007).

Vita Alme Virginis Liidwine, ed. A. de Meijer (Groningen, 1963) [Saints’ life of Lidwina of Schiedam, partly based on the notes of Jan Wouters, Lidwina’s confessor. For a second version of the work, Brugman used the work of Jan Gerlach. The edition of Meijer is based on this longer version of 1456. The Vita Alme Virginis Liidwine is modelled on David of Augsburg's Profectus Religiosorum (with the three grades of perfection), and at times follows almost literaly Bonaventure’s Legenda Major. The emphasis is on the saint’s total subjugation to the Divine will. For older editions of versions one (a.o. Cologne, 1483/Louvain, 1485) and two (a.o.Delft, 1487 and 1490), see De Troeyer, I, 75. Cf. also BHL n. 4933-4926, and AASS Aprilis II, 270ff (the Vita Prior mentioned there is the second version of the Vita). A third redaction (Vita Posterior) was published at Schiedam (1498; See also AASS Aprilis II, 302ff.). A French translation of Brugman’s Vita Alme Virginis Liidwine appeared in Douai/Doornik, 1601]

[The work emphasises that genuine prayer is the single most important element of true religious life, and not the study of theological problems. It deals with the causes of religious decadence from this perspective and subsequently puts the duties of Franciscan guardians, teachers and novice masters in the same light.]

Aside from some more theological issues, the work develops devotional themes in line with the main-stream Franciscan traditions as put forward in Bonaventure’s De Triplici Via, the works of David of Augsburg, and Ubertino da Casale’s Arbor Vitae. Also clear that Brugman is relying on insights from Bernard of Clairvaux, Hugh of St.Cher, Suso and on exemplary elements derived from the works of Jacob of Voragine.]

Joannes Brytt (John Brytt/Bryll/Bruyl, d. after 1420)

English friar. Active in the Newcastle convent. Papal chaplain in 1396 and guardian of the London convent in 1397. He was and promoted to the Irish episcopal see of Enachdun (Annaghdown) by pope Boniface IX in 1402, at a moment when he was suffragan bishop of Winchester. Not known whether he actually made it to his diocese, which had become vacant after the death of the Franciscan bishop Henry Trillowe. In December 1408, John’s successor was appointed (John Wyn). Yet John is found as suffragan bishop at York between 1417 and 1420. Scholars assume that he should be identified with John Bruyl, who at one point in time was in the possession of a set of Aristotelian works, now found at Oxford (MS Oxford, Bodleian, Digby153), and wrote notes and comments in the margin.

Joannes Burgundus (Jean Bourgeois, d. 1494)

Born in La Bresse. Entered the novitate in the Observant friary of Dôle. In 1470, he helped create the Observant friary of Chambéry and was in subsequent years also involved with the creation of Observant houses in Cluses, Pont de Vaux and Moustiers. Jean Bourgeous had quite a reputation as a popular preacher. According to the Chronique de Besançon (Bibliothèque municipale de Besançon, MS 1616, fol. 162f), where he preached between 1484 and 1486, his public ‘Ploroit beaucoup…faisoit souvent crier miséricorde par le peuple…se mettoit à pleurer de telle façon qu’il demeuroit come pasmé en la chère.’ Later, in 1488, Jean Bourgeois is found in Paris, where he preached and apparently was appointed ordinary confessor of Charles VIII. In 1492 he is found preaching in Angers and Tours. As late as 1492, he founds with royal support the Observant friary of Lyon, where he remains vicar until his death. He is soon after venerated as a saint by the locals.

Joannes Capet (Jean Capet, fl. c. 1500)

OFMObs. Studied at the College of Navarra (Paris), and at Boulogne-la-Grasse. Became doctor in law and theology. After his entrance in the order, he became chaplain of cardinal Raymond Perault (d. 1505). Due to Jean’s influence, cardinal Perault sent several relics to the Franciscans of Koblenz, to the Poor Clares of Beauvais, and to Jeanne de Valois (foundress of the Annonciade). Apparently, Jean produced for cardinal Perault a short Traité de patience, modeled on Tertulian (mentioned in a letter by Perault to Jeanne de Valois, written in Basel, 30 June, 1504.). This work seems to be lost. In addition, Jean produced a Voie briefve de Paradis, contenante le pardon de paine et de coulpe [...] composee en l'an de grace 1498 par ung venerable religieulx de l'ordre de Saint François [...] nommé Jehan Capet(1498), and a series of sermons.

Joannes Clericus (Jean Clerici, fl. c. 1527)

OFMObs from the Provincia Flandriae. Active as (anti-reformatory) preacher, and as guardian in Le Biez (Artois/Artesia). Would have escaped an attack by Protestant agitators. Confessor of the nuns of the Annonciade of Béthune. He died in Le Biez in 1532. A series of his French sermons have survived, both in manuscripts and in old editions. Besides, several of the spiritual teachings in his sermons have been reworked into a few treatises, namely Le Traicté des fondemens du temple spirituel de Dieu, Le Traicté de exemplaire penitence, Le Manuel des Chrestiens, and Le Traicté nommé des trois passions de nostre seigneur Jesuchrist. Only the first two of these seem to have survived. According to some, he also wrote a commentary on the Song of Songs.

Joannes Clyn (ca. 1286/1300-1349)

Franciscan friar from Leinster near Kilkenny, in a family that might have had roots in Somerset. Known as the author of the Annalium Hiberniae chronicon, ad annum MCCCXLIX, which starts with the birth of Christ and ends in 1349 (the last entry is an eulogy of Fulk de la Freigne). Until 1332, the work is nearly completely a compilation of other chronicles. For his own lifetime, Clyn included much original material, notably on Ireland. The work has come down to us in four seventeenth-century transcripts, based on an older original in the possession of David Rothe, bishop of Ossory (early 17th cent). The transcripts indicate that Clyn’s annals once were part of a community book of the Franciscan friars at Kilkenny. This might explain, as has been suggested by Bernadette A. Williams, why the annals do not contain much information of the order: that information might have been in the adjacent community book that we don’t have any more. All things we know about the author and the creation of the annals has to be derived from the work itself. From that it can be inferred that Clyn probably began writing his annals in or around 1333. The annals also inform us that in 1336 Clyn was the first guardian of the projected Carrickbeg friary (near Carrick-on-Suir). When the construction of this friary faltered after 1338, due to the death of its main donor, the earl of Ormond, Clyn might have left and later became guardian of Kilkenny friary. Information on continental affairs in the early 1340s suggests that Clyn might have attended the Franciscan general chapter of Marseilles (1343). Near the end the annals give a dramatic account of the arrival of the Plague in Ireland. In this part, Clyn discloses his authorship. Other works ascribed to Clyn by Bale and other bibliographers have never been found.

notice

Other Irish Chronicles/Chroniclers: Annales de Monte Fernandi (Annales of Multyfarnham) compiled by Stephen of Exonia (See there); the Kilkenny Chronicle (three sections compiled in different periods. 1. Section for the years 1264-1322 (compiled by the friars of Castedermot (Tristledermot); 2. Section for the years 1202-1264, using the Annales Monte Fernandi (compiled in an unedited ms in the friary in Lenister); 3. Section for the years 1316-1332, almost identical with the annals of Clyn (this section compiled after 1330 in Kilkenny). The Kilkenny chronicle edited from British Libr. Cotton Vespasin B XI..; The Annals of Ross, existing only in a 17th century transcript (Trinity College Dublin 547 ff. 410-12, edited with the Annals of Clyn; the Annals of Nenagh, written at the friary of Nenagh after the middle of the fourteenth century, edited from a 17th century transcript of the lost original manuscript (British Libr. Landsdowne 418, ff. 40-42) This chronicle allegedly was produced by Galfridus O'Hogan (see there); the Annales of Inisfallen (written ca. 1360), parts of which are regarded as Franciscan (ed.: R.I. Best & E. MacNeill, Annals of Inisfallen, reproduced by facsimile...with a Descriptive Introduction (Dublin, 1933).)

Johannes Colgan (John Colgan, 1592?-1658)

OFM. Irish friar. Hagiographer. He was born in the County of Donegal, in the parish of Donagh. He had left Ireland before or by 1615. He was ordained priests and entered the Franciscans at Louvain (St. Anthony College) on 26 April 1620, where he studied theology under the lectors Thomas Fleming and Robert Chamberlain. After finishing at louvain, he might have taught philosophy at Aachen (Aix-en-Chapelle) before he was made lector at Mainz around 1628. He probably stayed there until early 1634, when he returned to Louvain, to take up the position of novice master. A year later, afer the death of Hugh Ward, John Colgan became professor of theology in St Anthony College. In this position, he continued the collection and edition of irish historical and hagiographical materials, which had started in the 1620s by his predecessor Hugh Ward and a number of other Irish Franciscans active at Louvain, such as Patrick Fleming, and Michael O Cleirigh. After taking over as the director of this project, Colgan and his team devised a large, multi-volume work on Irish history and hagiography, under the financial patronage of Thomas Fleming and Hugh O'Reilly, archbishop of Armagh. The prospected third volume of this work, the Acta sanctorum veteris et maioris Scotiae, seu, Hiberniae sanctorum insulae, was ready for press on November 1643 and appeared in early 1645. It contained 270 saints’ lives for feast days for the first three months of the year. The first two prospective volumes of the series were a overview of the sacred and profane history of Ireland and Irish missionaries abroad, and a source collection for the vitae of Saint Patrick, Saint Brigid and Saint Columcille. The first of these volumes never appeared, but the second volume, the Triadis thaumaturgae, was published in 1647. It is interesting that the editors and printers felt it necessary to create for this volume a new typecast. Further volumes were not issued, due to a lack of funds. Hence the Acta sanctorum veteris et maioris Scotiae for the remaining months of the year did not see the light (After Colgan’s death, other friars took over the charge of pubishing some of the edited materials. This led in later decades to the publication of the Vita S. Rumoldi and Patrick Fleming’s Collectanea sacra. Further unpublished materials of Colgan’s work on such collections disappeared in the aftermath of the French Revolution). In June 1651 Colgan was promoted to the position of commissary of the three main Irish Franciscan colleges. But he asked to be relieved of this position in February of the following year, due to health problems. This also motivated him to refused a request from the order leadership to formulate a perspective on Zacharius Borenius’s positions concerning the Franciscan observants. Colgan did publish in 1655 a booklet on the nationality of John Duns Scotus. Three years later, on 15 January 1658, Colgan died in the Louvain St. Anthony’s college.

Joannes Collimantus (Jean Collimant/Colimant, fl. early 16th cent.)

1508 Doctor of theology in France and in 1510 guardian of the Orléans friary, In 1516, he was preacher at Orléans for the ‘Fête Dieu’. In 1530 he voted in the theology faculty in favor of the invalidation of the marriage between Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon. In 1533, he was provincial minister of Touraine. In 1534 he was stripped of all administrative responsibilities by the order in the wake of the so-called Pierre d’Arras affaire, which amounted to a invented apparition of a deceased female benefactor of the Orléans friary who had been interred on the friary’s grounds, but whose grave the friars wanted to empty to use it for a more important ‘catch’ The apparition would have suggested the friars that she had been Lutheran during her life and for that purpose was put in Hell and unworthy to rest in Franciscan ground. She would continue to hound the friary until the body had been removed. In her Heptaméron, Marguerite of Navarre accused Colimant to have persuaded fellow friars that the Gospel was not more believable than the commentaries of Caesar. His fellow friar Guillaume Huet dedicated to him the Serpens antiquus de septem peccatis criminalibus (Paris: Joh. Frellon, ca. 1505/Paris: Jodocus Badius, 1519). [Question: what was the precise authorial relation between Etiènne Nobileau (OFM) and Guillaume Huet (OFM) concerning this work?].

Joannes Coloniensis II (Johannes von Köln/Agrippinus, 2nd half 15th cent.)

OFMConv. German friar from the Rhine area; Scotist theologian. Known for his Quaestiones Magistrales, an alphabetically organised compendium of 430 abbreviated questions derived from the works of Scotus. He sometimes is erronously identified with Johan Blomendal, who lived and worked a century earlier. The 1476/1477 edition of the Quaestiones Magistrales inform us that Joannes de Colonia was sacrarum litterarum professor. Yet nothing is known about his possible teachings at the Franciscan Cologne studium, at Cologne University, or elsewhere (see for another opinion on this matter the work of Schlageter)

Joannes Consilius (Jean Conseil, fl. 16><sup>th cent.)

French friar. Took his profession in the Thons friary (Vosges) and became an active member of the Observant Saint Bonaventure province (previously the Burgundian province). Became doctor of theology at Paris on 17 March 1539. Provincial minister between 1542 and 1545. Thereafter, he became for two years (1545-1547) the house theologian of the bishop of Clermont, Guillaume Duprat. In this position, he participated in the first sessions of the Council of Trente, where he urged in April 1546 for a new edition of the Vulgate, gave a sermon on the Ascension on June 3rd 1546, and prepared with other theologians several discussions on justification, the eucharist, and indulgences (in sessions on justification (June 22 and September 27 1546), on the sacraments in general (24, 25 January 1547 and 18 February 1547) and on indulgences (28 June 1547)), to counter Protestant views. He also took part, as provincial custodian, in the general chapter of Assisi (28 May 1547), where he was elected general definitor of the Ultramontan Observants. He was back in France around 1550, and in 1551 he can be found again in the Grand Couvent de Paris, where he was a house discretus and a study prefect. On May 2nd 1555, he was one of three masters who were given the task to teach biblical studies. In 1556, he received much resistance as general commissioner for the four French Franciscan provinces. Jean was confessor and counsellor of the French King Henry II. In 1559, the Princess Elisabeth, eldest daughter of the King, took him with her to Spain when she married the Spanish King Philip II. It is not known whether or not he was present when Elisabeth died in Madrid on 3 October 1568. Jean possibly died himself in 1577. Jean was not a prolific author. He wrote some sermons and a number of theological treatises, among which was a treatise on the sacraments (directed against Protestant ideas). None of these works seem to have reached the printing press.

Johannes Contractus (Kortz/Korz/de Saxonia, second half fourteenth century)

Supposedly a Dutch friar,and member of the Cologne province. According to others a member of the Saxony province. Famous preacher, whose works (Sermones de Tempore et de Sanctis) survived in many mss. According to Stephen Mossman (2012) however, Johanneas Contractus (transformed by modern scholars into the vernacular Kortz, Korz) is an imaginary figure, and that there is no real evidence that we are dealing with a friar of Netherlandish descent. As most extant manuscripts are from South German libaries, the autor might actually be a friar from Southern Germany.

Joannes Coronel (Juan Coronel, 1569-1651)

Spanish friar from Torija (Guadalajara). As a young student of liberal arts at the Alcalá de Henares university, Juan took the habit at the age of fifteen in the friary of San Diego de Alcalá. After his noviciate and further studies, he traveled to Yucatan in 1590 or 1593, where he was ordained priest and became active as a teacher (Diego López de Cogolludo was one of his disciples) and a pastoral worker, and helped to incorporate Yucatán in the San José province. He learned Mayan and published a set of works of pastoral care in that language, reworking in part earlier works by Villalpando, Landa, Solana and Antonio de Ciudad Real. He also taught Mayan to others (such as López de Cogolludo), and served as a guardian of several friaries. In 1621, he became definitor. He died on January 14, 1651.

Joannes de Alen (Jan van Alen, d. 1541)

OFMObs. Confessor of the Poor Clares of Mechelen (1535) and Antwerp (1538), When, in 1535, the humanist Jacques Lefèvre d’Etaples published in Antwerp the Contemplationes Idiotae (probably a work of the late fourteenth century Augustinian regular canon Raymundus Jordanus, now re-issued with an introduction of Jacques Lefèvre d’Etaples), friar Jan van Alen quickly provided a Dutch reworking on request of friar Matthias Weynsen. This work was entitled Contemplationes in duytsche. This booklet, which did not solely gave a Dutch rendering of the Latin text, but also added to it Een dancbaerheyt van dye gheheele passie ons heeren Iesu Christi (which is largely almost literally derived from the Fasciculus Myrrhe, an anonymous Franciscan production), received three editions between 1535 and 1540. Jan van Alen died in Antwerp in 1541.

Joannes de Alvernia (Joannis Firmanus, 1259, Fermo - 1322, La Verna) Beatus, feast 13 August.

Italian friar from Fermo. Became an Augustinian regular canon at the age of 10. Three years later, at the age of 13, he entered the Franciscan order (1272) in the March of Ancona. Was stringent in his observance of Franciscan poverty, yet did not evolve into a full-blown spiritual, due to his strong sense of obedience. He nevertheless kept close ties with some spirituals, in particular with Jacopone da Todi, whom he assisted at his death bed (24 December 1306). As an adult friar, John moved to the Tuscan province, and after 1289, he retreated as a hermit to LaVerna, where he died on 9 August, 1322. At Alverna, he lived in a small hut in the woods, spending the evening meal with the local Franciscan community. The rest of his day, he spent with prayer and meditation. Renowned for his ascetisim and his extasies (during which he would have received visions of Francis, Laurentius, the Virgin, and his guardian angel). Would have been consulted by many prelats and theologians. Also renowned for his episodic preaching tours during Lent in Toscana and Umbria, notably during the latter years of his life (esp. at Pisa, Florence, Arezzo, Perugia, and Siena). On 24 July 1311, he testified to the authenticity of the Portiuncola indulgence

OFM. Friar of the Concepción province. Mystical and spiritual author. Discretus and convent preacher for forty years at San Francisco de Valladolid. Apparently also active as lector of theology.

Joannes de Argamanes (Juan de Argumanes, ca. 1458-1535)

OFM. Spanish friar. Entered the order in the Santiago province. Was novice master at S. Francisco de Mayorga (1498-1501), and subsequently guardian of S. Francisco de Caceres (c. 1502) and Toro (c.1504-1506). Visitator of the extremadura convents that followed the reform of Juan de Guadalupe. Provincial of the Santiago province between 1507-1510. In this function he struggled against the partisans of the Guadelupe or ‘Capuce’reform (esp. Pedro de Bobadilla y Melgar), who wanted to become independent of the Santiago province (compromise reached at Évora (21-01, 1509)). Juan was guardian of S. Francisco de Salamanca between 1510 and 1515. When, in 1521, Francisco de Zafra was deposed as provincial of the Santiago province, as the majority of friars found him too lenient towards the partisans of the Guadelupe reform, Juan Argumanes was chosen to replace him. Yet Francisco Quiñones decided to have both men removed from the Santiago province, in order to restore the peace. Thereafter, Juan de Argumanes retreated into the Jarandilla convent in the Los Angeles province. During his career, Juan published several works, showing interest in matters pertaining to the order’s history, juridical status, and spiritual legacy, and propagating the indulgences granted to the Franciscan order.

Joannes de Avella (Giovanni Piscione d’Avella, c. 1580 - 1640)

OFMOBS. Italian friar, born at Avella (in the province of Avellino). Entered the Franciscan Observants in the Neapolitan province of Terra di Lavoro. In the order he developed himself into a distinguished preacher and theologian, as well as into a well-respected composer, performer and theoretician of music. Sometime in the early seventeenth century he was guardian of the Avella convent. Thereafter, between 1620 and 1635, he was rector of the Neapolitan Ecce Homo confraternity (devoted to the commemoration and contemplation of Christ’s passion). Giovanni compiled the confraternity’s statutes, and wrote/edited works of contemplation for use by the confraternity members (cf. Contemplationi devote, of 1637). Giovanni played an important role in the development of church music at the Neapolitan church Sta Maria la Nuova. He was a musical innovator, introducing the so-called ‘canto dimidiato’, which was to have a great success throughout the kingdom of Naples, and producing a work of musical didactics (Regole di musica), which was published after his death (he died in 1640 in the infirmary of the Sta Maria la Nova).

manuscripts

Some of his musical manuscripts apparently are kept in the Franciscan provincial library of Naples and in the library of the Neapolitan musical conservatorium S. Pietro a Maiella.

Joannes de Capestrano (Joannes Capestran/Giovanni da Capestrano: 1386, Capestrano - 1456, Ilok on theDanube) Sanctus, feast 23 October

OFMObs. Italian friar. Son of a Savoyard nobleman who held the town of Capestrano for the Count of Celano. Pursued studies of Roman and Canon law at Perugia, and became active as lawyer and administrator in the Neapolitan area (assistent of the Neapolitan tribunal; Judge in 1412; Governor of Perugia?). Made prisoner during the conflict between Perugia and the warlord Malatesta. Had a conversion experience and broke with both his professional life and his marriage. Entered the Observants at Monteripido, near Perugia in 1415/16, at the age of 30. Priest in 1417. Studied moral theology under Bernardine of Siena. Held several functions in the order and became at the same time active as Itinerant Observant preacher. He quickly became a very renowned homiletic authority and spokesman for the Observance. Worked closely with papacy (esp. Eugenius IV and Martin V), and was repeatedly chosen papal legate. Famous are Capistrano’s well-organized preaching missions in the German Empire and Poland between 1451-54 (with twelve Franciscan helpers and a host of interpreters), and his preaching tours through Hungary. A substantial part of his preaching was directed against the Hussites, the Turcs (crusade preaching rallies; active at the siege of Belgrade), and the Jews (denouncing their alleged practices of usury, and arguing for their ‘conversion’ to Christianity). Besides, he dealt with many of the moral issues that also can be found in the sermons and actions of Bernardine of Siena and other renowned Observant preachers (which included the formation of confraternities, the stimulation of the third order (of which Capistran sometimes is mentioned to be the real inventor), the foundation of montes pietatis and hospitals). Active as inquisitor against Italian fraticelli (sometimes together with Giacomo della Marca), and against followers of the Miroir des simples âmes of Marguerite Porete in Venice. Between 1443-1446 and again between 1449-1452, John of Capistran was general vicar of the Observants. During his vicariate, and with papal support, the Observants obtained almost full independence from the Conventual branch, while officially maintaining the unity of the Franciscan order. John died on 23 October 1456 at Ilok, on the Danube. His grave became a cult site, until it was destroyed by the Turcs in1526. He was officially canonised in 1690 [Cf. AASS Oct. 23 X, 427-42 & AAS XLVII, 714-716.]

Many of his sermons and several letters and theological treatises have survived, but most of them still need a critical edition.

manuscripts

Many of his works can be found in mss of the national library in Naples, especially in mss I.A.23; V.H.57; VII.E.29; VII.F.2.26; VII.E.36; XII.G.5; XII.G.7; VII.E.3; VIII.A.7; VIII.A.12; III.A.14 (Brancacciano); VII.F.1; VIII.AA.30; VIII.B.35; Capestrano, Bib. Conv. XXXI [= Sermones Quadragesimales, 1424] A further scrutiny of mss libraries no doubt will bring more manuscripts to light. See also Cenci, the articles of Chiappini, Hofer, Lusczki, Forni & Vian, and especially Lucianus Luszcki, De sermonibus S. Ioannis a Capistrano.

editions

Most of his works are only available in old editions. Around 1700, stimulated by John’s canonisation, most of his works were gathered in sixteen volumes by G.A. Sessa. [Cf. Chiappini (1927), 28-38].This collection did not reach the printing press. For a more or less complete overview of old collections and editions, see Zawart, 353-354; A. Chiappini, La produzione letteraria di S. Giovanni da Capestrano (Gubbio, 1927) [also with info on the collection gathered by Sessa, on pp. 28-38]. The work of Chiappini was also published in parts in Miscellanea Franciscana 24 (1924), 109-149; 25 (1925), 157-198; 26 (1926), 52-66; 27 (1927), 54-104; L. Luszczki, De sermonibus S. Ioannis a Capistrano, Studium historico-criticum, Studia Anoniana 16 (Rome, 1961) II, 189-297.

[for later editions, see elsewhere in this web site (Research Instruments, Constitutions section)]

Esposizione della Regula dei Frati Minori ed. A. Ghinato (Rome, 1960).

Declaratio Primae Regulae Sanctae Clarae(written in January 1445, while general vicar of the regular Observants. This declaration later was given a papal interpretation by Eugenius IV, to clarify Capistran’s remarks on the adherence to the precepts of the rule.), ed. Donatus van Adrichem, in: AFH, 22 (1929), 336-357, 512-528. An introduction to the text, with an edition of the introductory letter can be found in AFH 5 (1912), 301ff [written in 1445 (Rome) for the Poor Clares of the Corpus Christ & St. Paul convent in Mantua (on the request of abbess Elisabeth). John made wide use of existing constitutions, papal decrees, and also of the constitutions made by Colette of Corbie for the Colettines of France. The Declaratio consists of 1.) a highly polished Epistola responsiva to the abbess Elisabeth, 2.) a declaratio regulae, and 3.) a concluding exhortatio, followed by a solutio quorundam Dubiorum. The rule commentary closely follows the text of the ‘prima regula sanctae Clarae’ stressing the liturgical and penitential obligations of the sisters, as well as the rule of silence. John also shows his problems with oblate recruits and overly young postulants. With reference to Colette of Corbie, who did not accept postulants under eighteen, John urges the abbess to look for postulants of seventeen and older. With regard to De modo laborandi (chapter seven of the rule), John Capistran makes clear ‘quod intentio beati Francisci et sanctae Clarae fuit excludere otium, quia multam malitiam docuit otiositas (Eccl. 33, 29). Item quod laboritium non versetur circa inhonesta et vana ad religionem non convenientia.’ (ed. D. van Adrichem, 512.) In his comments on the ninth chapter, which deals with penitence. John makes clear that sisters should help each other and that ‘abbatissa et sorores caveant, ne irascantur vel conturbentur propter peccatum alicuius. (ed. D. van Adrichem, 515). Of particular significance are John’s remarks concerning the tenth chapter De admonitione et correptione sororum. Strong emphasis that ‘abbatissa familiarem se exhibeat sororibus, ut patienter eas audiat et discrete ac benigne respondeat non reputans se dominam sed ancillam, quia et ipsa ancilla Christi est, et tanquam ancilla Domini spiritualiter et corporaliter iuxta posse ceteris ancillis, quae serviunt in domo Domini famuletur.’ (ed. D. van Adrichem, 516). Also stressed that ‘sorores semper invicem sollicite servent mutue dilectionis unitatem quae est vinculum perfectionis. This rule directive is interpreted as follows: ‘Hoc est dicere: quod sorores invicem se diligant sicut Christus dilexit nos et tradidit semetipsum pro nobis oblationem et hostiam Deo in odorem suavitatis…’ (ed. D. van Adrichem, 516). Clearly an attempt at forging or at least facilitating a team spirit (also clear in chapter on penitence). This section also contains some insights on John’s view of the sisters’s literacy and learning: puts it very much to the discretion of the abbess how much learning the literate sisters should try to obtain, while at the same time stressing the rule’s verdict that the illiterate should not aspire for literacy (compare the rule of Francis). In the final adhortation at the enc of the rule commentary, the abbess herself is urged again to become an exemple of perfection: ‘Quae mater est aliarum, in bonis operibus ceteras vincat. Prius seipsam perficiat, ut filias suae curae commissas ad perfectionem semper invitet…’ (ed. D. van Adrichem, 523.) John then ambarks on a description of the perfect abbes mother-virgin, whose virtues, good examples and love for the virgins in her trust will be a sine qua non for the religious life and wellbeing of the community.]

Johannes de Casali (Joannes de Casale Monferrato, d. in or after 1375)

Italian friar. Theologian and scientist. Entered the order in the Genoa province. Lector at the Assisi studium (1335-1340). Subsequently lector at Cambridge (ca.1440-41: 49th lector at Cambridge studium) and Bologna (1346/1351-52?). Master of theology (?When), and appointed papal legate at the court of King Frederick of Sicily (1375. Cf. BF VI, no. 1410) by Pope Gregory XI. Several of his philosophical and theological works have survived, such as his biblical commentaries (for instance the Lectura super Epistolas S. Pauli etc. (lectured upon in Assisi), an interesting question on velocity and movement of natural bodies (introducing in Italy the Oxfordian ‘new physics’; his quaestio was probably written before 1346, but it was publicly discussed at Bologna in 1351 or 1352) and letters. Mentioned by Bartholomew of Pisa (De Conformitate, AF,Vol. 4, 524) Inquisitor in Florence (1344). There is some confusion concerning the identification of John. The references in the sources might refer to various friars with the same name. See Piana.

Johannes de Castello (Jean de Châtillon/Giovanni da Castiglione, second half thirteenth century)

Italian or French friar (Sbaralea suggested that he should be equated with the Italian friar Giovanni da Castiglione, active as inquisitor in the 1270s and 1280s). John of Castello was in any case active in Paris in 1272/1273, where he composed/compiled or copied several large series of sermones de tempore. His sermon collections proved to be popular. Witness the manuscript dissemination.

Joannes de Caulibus (Giovanni de’Cauli/Giovanni da Calvoli, 14th cent.)

Possibly a member of a da Calvoli family from the neighbourhood of San Gimignano or Siena. Entered the Franciscan order in San Gimignano c. 1300 (if we can accept the remarks in Bartholomew of Pisa’s De Conformitate). Not much is known of his life and career in the order (For a more in-depth treatment of the search concerning his background and life, see Marco Arosio’s detailed lemma ‘Giovanni de’Cauli’ in DBI LIV, 768ff). Giovanni da Calvoli (Joannis de Caulibus) is held by many scholars to be the composer of the famous Meditationes Vitae Christi (MVC, maybe written in the 1330s, although many recent scholars tend to place the composition between 1346 and 1364. However, that would indicate that Giovanni's alleged entrance into the order might have to be pushed to a moment later in the fourteenth century), which in the later Middle ages was frequently ascribed to Bonaventure. Several (at least a longer redaction of 95 chapters and a shorter redaction of 41 chapters) redactions of the MVC survive in Latin and the vernacular in many mss. Besides, the section of the passion, also survived separately as the Meditaciones de Passione Christi, orMPC) which also were very popular for centuries, both in Latin and in the vernacular. The original text of the MVC might have been written in Latin, but there might also have been a vernacular original that shortly thereafter was translated into Latin. In any case, the Latin text was conceived as a book (libellus, liber, opusculum, tractatus). It follows the life of Christ, with in between (chapters 45 to 58) a treatise on the active and the contemplative life. The division of the MVC into meditations for each day of the week is not found in fourteenth-century manuscripts, and is an innovation of later editors. The Latin work was directed to a Franciscan nun, a certain ‘Cecilia’ [a Poor Clare of a Tuscan monastery] to guide her and her fellow sisters’ spiritual growth, by focusing with imaginative meditative encounters on the life and Passion of Christ. Stallings-Taney (1998) states on the basis of her philological scrutiny of the text (p. 275-276): ‘These passages, not to mention the entire tenor of the MVC, highlight the considerable misunderstanding of the purpose of the MVC text one encounters in reading Daniel Lesnick’s text, Preaching in Medieval Florence [Columbia, 1989, 143-179]. Lesnick’s statement that ‘the Meditations on the Life of Christ…is the closest we can come to retrieving Franciscan sermons as actually delivered to the laity in medieval Florence’ is clearly untenable. He further states that the ‘Meditations was obviously intended as a sermon or series of sermons for the edification of the laity.’Apart from the fact that Caulibus tells us - over and over again - that his libellum is written for a Franciscan religious, specifically a Poor Clare, it is a mistake to accept the mistranslation of the word sermo from the Paris Italian Ms. 115.’ See on these matters also the 1999 article of Michael Cusato.

Several years ago, Sarah McNamer has provided compelling arguments to rethink completely the origin and textual history of the Meditationes Vitae Christi. In an article from 2009 published in Speculum, she proposes to forget current assumptions about the primacy of the large Latin Meditationes Vitae Christi, the possible product of Giovanni da Calvoli, from which the smaller Latin MVC, MPC and a number of Italian versions were derived. Instead, she argues rather convincingly that the origin of the text goes back to an Italian version, still surviving in one manuscript (MS Oxford, Bodl. Canon. Ital. 174). The exact date of this 'first version' is difficult to determine, but McNamer suggests it which even go back to the 1280s or 1290s. McNamer is not completely sure about the Franciscan provenance of this first version, but provides arguments to situate it in the world of Tuscan Poor Clares. She actually suggests three Poor Clares who could be possible candidates for the production of this oldest Italian version. A first candidate is the Poor Clare Cecilia of Florence (not only because the name 'Cecilia' remained in the main Latin version as the spiritual daughter for whom the text had been conceived, but also because Cecilia of Florence is mentioned in the introduction to Ubertino da Casale's Arbor Vitae Crucifixae Iesu as one of his spiritual guides. She is also mentioned as a nun of the Florentine Monticelli monastery around January 1286 in Mariano of Florence's Libro delle degnità et excellentie del Ordine della Seraphica Madre delle Povere Donne Sancta Chiara da Assisi, ed. Boccali). A second candidate is the poor Clare Elia dei Pulci (d. 1320) (who according to Mariano of Florence's Libro delle degnità, ed. Boccali, p. 207, was a highly accomplished and gifted person ('di singulare ingegno naturale et di gramaticha'), as well as a champion of passion devotion). A third candidate is an as yet unknown Poor Clare from the San Gimignano monastery, where the Franciscan preacher Giovanni da Calvoli was spiritual director.

McNamer suggests that Giovanni da Calvoli reworked the original Italian version (which subsequently was more or less suppressed, and now only seems to survive in MS Oxford, Bodl. Canon. Ital. 17), toning down some of the carnal and overly affective dimensions, and changing it along the lines of more 'desirable' gendered patterns of devotion. The first outcome of this reworking by Giovanni would have been a 'short' Italian version of the MVC (prologue and ca. 40 chapters), known as the Italian 'testo minore' or the 'italienische kleine Text' in older manuscript studies on the MVC. This minor Italian text, which for instance survives in MS Florence, Biblioteca Riccardiana 1419, and dates from 1336 or shortly thereafter (date based on the inclusion of Revelations of Elisabeth of Hungary), in turn became the basis for a 'large' Italian version (prologue and 94 chapters). On the basis of this large Italian text, the large Latin MVC edited by Stallings-Taney would have come into being. This Latin text subsequently would have become the source for nearly all other known versions (the Latin MPC, the small Latin MVC, and the bulk of the surviving vernacular adaptations. Yet another argument for the chronological priority of a vernacular version and its possible origin in San Gimignano (but not necesarily with a Poor Clare as author of the text), through an analysis and reflection on Paris, Bibl. Nationale ms. It. 115 is made in the 2009 article of Jacques Dalarun & Marianne Besseyre. Based on all these diverging opinions, the status of Giovanni as the compiler of the first Italian reworking of an Italian original, or only as the compiler of the large Latin MVC edited by Stallings remains uncertain.

But even more recently, the view of McNamer and that of several others has been challenged on filological grounds by Peter Tóth and Dávid Falvay (2014 and again 2015), who re-assert the primacy of the Latin tradition, but challenge the authorship of Giovanni di Caulibus altogether, making an interesting case for re-assigning the text’s authorship to the Franciscan Jacobus de Sancto Geminiano, leader of a rigorist spiritual faction that rebelled in 1312 (2014, p. 69). And: ‘…his identification as the author of the text, in contrast with the never-recorded Johannes de Caulibus, has been attested to by several fourteenth-century manuscripts, either in the shorter form of Jacobo or, by one particular copy, in the full form as Jacob da Sangimignano. Furthermore, the dates of the charismatic leadership of the rebels, at the very beginning of the fourteenth century, also seem to accord with the alleged date of the MVC as an early fourteenth- century text. Just like the supposed author of the MVC, the spiritual Jacobus de Sancto Geminiano was also a Franciscan, deeply committed to the original Franciscan ideals of poverty and simplicity.’ (2014, p. 72) Hence, with the Franciscan Jacobus de Sancto Geminiano as the author of the earliest text, he suggests, counter to the argument of McNamer, to re-establish the long Latin text of the as the earliest version of the work, written about 1300, with possibly a Clarissan background for one of the vernacular transformations.

If the argument of Tóth and Falvay can be corroborated, we both have to amend McNamer's thesis and, even more dramatically, we have to dismiss Giovanni as author/compiler of the MVC. However, Recently, McNamer has re-stated her position with more arguments in additional publications (2014 & 2016). Hence the discussion seems to be ongoing.

Joannes de Cazalla (Juan de Cazalla, c. 1480 - d. before 1532)

Spanish friar from a converted Jewish family; born in Palma (Murcia). Unknown whether he joined the Observants or the Conventuals. In any case master of theology, and strong Humanist grounding in Latin and Greek (cf. his commentary on the Greek NT), and his admiration for Erasmus (defended Erasmus against Franciscan detractors in a 1523 letter to his fellow friar Francisco Ortiz, who in a sermon had attacked the Praise of Folly. Entered in the service of cardinal Jiménez de Cisneros (archbishop of Toledo). After Cisneros’ death, Juan became titular bishop of Vera, with the right of fulfilling episcopal tasks in the city and the diocese of Avila. Maybe also titular bishop of Troye. Became involved with the alumbrados/iluminados (together with his sister María de Cazalla, who later had to face inquisitorial questioning). Juan has left a significant spiritual and anti-astrological legacy.

J.Martínez de Bujanda (Madrid: Fundación Universitarua Española, 1974); The work, written in a form of a dialogue, amounts to a Castilian reworking/translation of the Viola Animae of Pietro Dorlando, which in itself was an adaptation of Raymundo Sebond’s Theologia Naturalis. Diego Estella’s Meditaciones del Amor de Dios is, in turn, largely dependent on Juan’s Lumbre del Alma.

Joannes de Daventria (Johannes/Jan van Deventer/a Davantria, d. 21 October, 1554)

OFMObs. Dutch friar from Deventer. Already preacher in 1518 and in 1524 guardian in Dorsten. Four years later, in 1528, he was discrete for his province. He was opposed against the division of the Cologne province, and after the erection of the Lower Dutch province in 1529, he remained active within the German part of the Observant Cologne province, to become guardian in Hamm in 1530, guardian in Brühl and Provincal between 1532-1535, 1546-1549 (presiding over the chapter held at Groningen), and 1552-1554. In 1547, during his second stint as provincial, he was also appointed general definitor at the general chapter of Assisi. Well-regarded preacher at the Cathedral of Cologne from 1526 or 1527 onwards. Active defender of monastic discipline and Catholicism, renowned preacher and theological controversialist. The sermon he held in the Cathedral of Cologne on 17 September 1531, in which he dwelt on Purgatory, caused a prolonged conflict with the Lutheran-minded Bernard Rothmann. This dispute, which lasted until after 1532, caused Jan van Deventer to write a number of texts that found their way into his Christianae Veritatis Telum. Jan van Deventer died as provincial minister at Emmerich.

editions

Christianae Veritatis Telum seu Fidei Catapulta, in plerosque pseudoprophetas ac populi seductores (Cologne, 1533). This work, dedicated to Bishop Franciscus von Waldeck, deals with the following topics: De fide, De ecclesia judice, De Eucharistiae veritate et utilitate, De sanctorum veneratione & invocatione, De usu imaginum, De purgatorio, De quibusdam articulis Rothmanni confutatis, De infantium baptismate.

Exegesis absolutissima juxta ac brevissima Evangelicae veritatis, errorumque & mendaciorum quae sunt cum in Confessione Lutherana Caesari Majestati in comitiis Augustensis exhibita tum in ejusdem Apologia, authore R.P. Johanne a Davantria, fratrum minorum regularis observantiae Provinciae Coloniae ministro (Cologne: Melchior Novesianus, 1535/Cologne: Melchior Novesianus, 1537). Parts of this work can also be found in: Andreas Fabricius Leodius, Harmonia Confessionis Augustanae, doctrinae evangelicae consensum declarans (Cologne: Maternus Cholinus, 1573 & 1587). The Exegesis, written at the request of Emperor Charles V, was a reaction to an Apologia of Melanchton, which itself had been a reaction to Catholic protests against the Confessio Augustana, which had been presented to Charles V by seven German princes on the Reichstag of Augsburg on 25 June 1530. When both the Confessio Augustana and Melanchton's Apologia were issued in print, whereas the Catholic protests were not, Jan van Deventer penned his own Exegesis to present the Catholic position. The work contains the following themes/chapters: De peccato originis, De justificatione, De una bonorum & malorum ecclesia, De ritibus ecclesiae, An fides sit poenitentiae pars, De integra peccatorum confessione, De satisfactione, De traditionibus, De communione rerum, De invocatione sanctorum, De communione sub una specie, De coelibatu sacerdotum, De discrimine ciborum, De votis monasticis. Cf. De Troeyer (1969), 123 & Schlager, (1909), 243-244.

Other works ascribed to Jan van Deventer, such as an Apologia contra Lutherum and an Apologia contra Anabaptistas are to be identified with the works mentioned above.

Joannes de Fabrica (d. 1487)

Friar from the Aquitaine province and the Toulouse custody. Studied theology at Paris. He received the licence in 1467 (1470?) and the doctorate in 1471 [Paris, BN Lat. 5657a f. 24r & BN Lat 15440 f. 39]. Joannes is famous for his treatise on indulgences (and more in particular the theory of a papally issued plenary indulgence for individual souls in purgatory), which he wrote in 1476 on request of cardinal Peraudi, in order to overcome the opposition of the Gallican clergy (who saw the indulgence as a manifestation of unbridled papal power and an infringment on episcopal pastoral authority). Treatise first published in 1480. Joannes’ treatise in several ways resembles the positions taken by his fellow Franciscan Joannes Angeli, though Angeli went even further; reason why his position was condemned by the Sorbonne. Joannes de Fabrica’ treatise escaped that fate, and became in fact a useful instrument for preachers of indulgences. The work received at least fifteenth printings throughout Europe, and in that sense fully fulfilled the expectations of cardinal Peraudi and the (Franciscan) pope Sixtus IV. For some time, Joannes de Fabrica allegedly was confessor of Duke Francis II ofBrittany and his wife (Margaret of Foix). The friar died in 1487 at Dinan, as guardian of the convent (in the Tours province)

Joannes de Fano (d. 1465)

Friar from the Marches of Ancona. Baccalaureus Sententiarum in Sept. 1428, licence in theology on 14 March 1434, regent master between 1434 and 1435. [CHUP IV, 478 no. 2314; 550 no. 2427; 555no. 2436; 574 no 2379; Paris BN Lat. 5657a f. 18r]. Took part in the trial of Joan of Arc (fourth session, february 1431). In 1442, he apparently taught on De Anima at Perugia. In 1444, he became bishop of Nocera Umbria. There is some confusion concerning the attribution of works to this friar and to Joannes Pili de Fano. It seems that the L’Art des’unir à Dieu and the Brevis Discursus super Observantia Paupertatis should be ascribed to the latter and not to the friar Joannes de Fano mentioned here.

Joannes de Fano (Johannes Pili/Giovanni Pili da Fano, 1469, Fano - 1539, Urbania)

Reformist OFMObs (1486), later OFMCap (1534), after a long period in which he was a severe criticaster of the Capuchins. During his observant period, he became active as preacher against Luther and Lutheranism (from this time, 1532, stem his Opera utilissima vulgare chiamata incendio di zizanie lutherane per li semplici).When the papal bull In suprema was suspended, Pili decided in 1534 to join the Capuchins (like several other more rigorist Observants). As a Capuchin, Pili founded several convents and became formative in moulding the character of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Capuchin spirituality (the second version of the Dialogo set the tone for anew, Capuchin, literature: harking back to the primitive franciscanism of Francis and his spiritual followers, and denouncing ‘superfluous’ learning). Died when preaching during Lent at Cateldurante (Pesaro-Urbino).

Ars Unionis : Operetta devotissima chiamata Arte de la Unione, la quale insegna unire l’anima con Dio, utilissima non solo a li regulari, ma ancora a li seculari spirituali et devoti (Brescia: Damiano & Jacomo Philippo fratelli, 1536/Brescia, 1548/Rome, revised edition by Dionisio da Montefalco, 1622); French version: L’Art de s’unir à Dieu (Lyons: J, Roussin, 1624); ed. C. Cargnoni, in: I fratri cappuccini. Documenti e testimonianze del primo secolo, ed. Costanzo Cargnoni (Perugia, 1991) III, 297-429. A Polish translation was published in 2006: Jan Pili da Fano, Umiejetnosc jednoczenia duszy z Bogiem, trans. Salezy Józef Kafel (Cracow: Wydawnictwo Spes, 2006). [Work produced shortly after 1534, during a meditative retreat after his transfer to the Capuchins. It is, in fact the first printed book from the Capuchin branch. The work offers to lay and religious people alike a method of prayer to arrive at a life of perfect love of God. In the Prologo, ed. Cargnoni, 300, Giovanni announces: ‘…a cioché li devoti e amorosi desideri de pervenire a questa impreciabile unione possino el suo intencto piú facilmente consequire, ho pensato in stilo basso, in lingua materna e vulgare e con iusta brevità, recoglier quello che molti, da Dio illuminati e in questo dignissimo exercizio experti, hanno scripto. E perché bisogna che l’anima sia ben purgata per essere apta a li divini lumi e splendori per posser pervenire a la desideria unione, però pongono tre vie, cioè purgativa, illuminativa e unitiva.’ Following Bonaventure’s De triplici Vita, his Soliloquium, and his De Perfectione Vitae ad Sorores in this triad of purgative, illuminative and unitive ways, as well as elements from Garcia de Cisneros OSB’s Exercitatorio de vida espiritual, Henry of Herp’s Speculum Perfectionis, and the works of Bartolomeo Cordoni and Pietro da Lucca (his more immediate authorities) he enlists daily prayer as a means to arrive at the status in which the soul can obtain an affective union (a spiritual marriage) with God in contemplation (hence, prayer, makes the soul ready to receive the grace of God in contemplation, ‘quod est operatio non hominis sed Dei’): with detailed advice for prayer and additional meditation exercises (replete with advice regarding posture, times of prayer etc.). In the midst of the Arte de la Unione is found a short treatise on the seven sorrows of St. Joseph. Cf. Jean-Joseph Lemire, ‘Jean de Fano et la dévotion aux sept douleurs et sept allégresses de saint Joseph’, Cahiers de Joséphologie 11 (1963), 65-80. The work fits in perfectly with the early Capuchin emphasison mental prayer and meditation, that we can also trace in the early Capuchin constitutions. Cf. Collectanea Franciscana 3 (1933), 40-66. Strong conviction that the highest level of contemplation in the highest unifying way is not a human activity but a divine one. In that stage, the Holy Spirit fulfils the mystical, loving union with the Divine (also resembles Gilbert of Tournai!)]

Piccolo Catechismo, included at the end of the 1536 edition of the Arte de la unione con Dio, on ff. 96r-98v, giving a basic grid of catechistic teachings on the commandments, the precepts of the Church, the credo, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, the sins against the Holy Spirit, the sins of the corporal senses, the practice of penitence with the works of mercy, the seven sacraments and the evangelical beatitudes, as well as the basic prayers necessary for each Christian to know ‘per essere bon cristiano’. Probably also provides insight in Giovanni’s quaresimal teachings. This rudimentary catechistic text has been edited in I fratri cappuccini. Documenti e testimonianze del primo secolo, III/2, ed. Costanzo Cargnoni (Perugia, 1991), 3222-3225.

Joannes de Fonte (Joh. la Fontaine, d. after 1309)

French friar and lector. Known not only for a reportatio of a lecture on the Fourth Book of the Sentences by Vital du Four (on the basis of a Sentences course held by Vital du Four in Montpellier in 1295-1296, which, among other things, would suggests that Joannes de Fonte at that moment was receiving his lectorate education there), but also for his compilation (ca. 1300/1303, when he was mentioned as lector at the Franciscan studium of Montpellier, a position he apparently held until 1309 and beyond) of the famous Conclusiones in IV Libros Sententiarum. The latter work, written on request of John’s(lectorate) students, amounts to careful extract of the Sentences of Lombard (and the Sentences commentary of Bonaventure). It was widely spread in the 14th and 15th century (more than 100 mss, and several editions) and translated in the vernacular (a.o. German). In some cases, the manuscripts of the Conclusiones also contain the Compendium Theologiae of Hugh Ripelin OP. John is also known as the author of the famous Parvi Flores (produced between 1267 and 1325; a florilegium of Aristotle citations, partly based on older compilations and upgraded with citations taken from newly translated works of Aristotle and important Aristotle commentaries). This work was meant both for students in Franciscan custodial schools/and university arts faculties and for preachers in need of philosophical lore. In a way, it provided in the field of philosophy a comparable instrument as his Conclusiones in IV Libros Sententiarum provided in the field of theology. According to Jacqueline Hamesse, the Parvi Flores are the most succesful florilegium of its kind between the late thirteenth and early sixteenth century, surviving in more than 300 mss. It was particularly influential in the German lands, where the work was widely used in the arts faculties (just like his Conclusiones in IV Libros Sententiarum was used in some German theological faculties). During his stay at Montpellier, in the early fourteenth century, John, following the views of Vital du Four, preached publicly against the positions of Olivi and Ubertino da Casale. [Cf. Ehrle, ALKG 2 (1886), 387-388 (remark from Ubertino’s Apologia for the year 1309); Ehrle, ALKG 2 (1886), 159]

Parvi Flores [The prologue in several manuscript versions of the work, which differs from the prologue of the printed version (the Auctoritates Aristotelis) and amounts to an introduction to philosophy and a division of the sciences, probably was not conceived by John de Fonte himself, but borrowed from another friar/lector].

Joannes de Fonte (Juan de la Fuente, ca. 1535-ca. 1600)

OFM. Spanish Observant friar from Toledo. Entered the order in the Burgos province. Fulfilled several guardianships: in the San Antonio friary of Escalona (1570), the Madre de Dios friary atTorrelaguna (1581), and in the Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza friary (Ocaña, 1585). He also was active as lector of theology with a definite mystical bend, and with a penchant for biblical commentaries. Juan should not be confused with the French Franciscan friar Jean de la Fontaine (Joannes de Fonte), who can be traced as lector at the Franciscan studium of Montpellier around 1330 and who compiled a Sentences abbreviation (Conclusiones seu Compendium Quatuor Librorum Sententiarum).

Joannes de Gaona (Juan de Gaona, 1507-27 September 1560)

Born in Alegria de Alava (Alava>> and not in Burgos?). Entered the Franciscan order at an early age. Studied at Paris under Petrus de Cornibus. Active as a theology lector in the Valladolid convent, to depart for New Spain in 1538. Became professor of grammar, rhetoric and philosophy at the Santa Cruz college of Tlatlelolco, which had been established by bishop Juan de Zumárrraga to create an indigenous Christian elite. Subsequently, Juan de Gaona became guardian, first of the Tlatelolco friary, later of the Cochimilco friary. Also involved with the founding of a friary at Tlanepantla. In 1551/1551, he became the provincial minister of the Santo Evangelio province (Mexico). During his provincialate, he reacted against the ideas of another Franciscan friar, namely Jacobo Daciano, who had argued in his Declamación del pueblo bárbaro that indigenous people should not be excluded from clerical offices. Juan de Gaona, on the other hand, defended the established practice, which denied indigenous people access to the priesthood, in his treatise Antidota quarumdam propositionum. Juan de Gaona died at the San Francisco convent in Mexico on 27 September 1560. According to Mendieta, he published a number of other works as well. During his teaching period at Tlatlelolco he also had become well-versed in the Mexican languages (commented upon by Mendieta), which shows in his sermons and in various of his theological treatises.

Joannes de Guadelupe (Juan de Guadelupe, 1450-1506)

Disc. Spanish friar from Guadelupe (Caceres). Attended the Hieronymite college in his native town and studied theology at the University of Salamanca. After he was ordained priest he joined the Franciscan order, where he soon became active as a reformer. Together with Juan de la Puebla (d. 1495), he took part in the foundation of several convents, among which was the convent of Jarandilla, where Juan de Guadelupe for some time was guardian. Together with his fellow friar Pedro de Bobadilla y Melgar, Juan took action to found a new Franciscan branch. He was able to enlist the support of his Franciscan superiors, as well as the papacy (pope Alexander VI), to start an observantia strictissima under the sway of the Conventual wing in the kingdom of Granada. After protests of the other Observants, this experiment was thwarted. Yet with the help of the Counts of Oropesa, the Duke of Feria, and others, Juan da Pedro soon thereafter were able to establish a range of convents, for which they eventually obtained papal authorisation in 1499. New new legal hassles were to follow.

Joannes de Lare (Johannes von Lare/Johann Lor, d. 1481)

German Observant friar from the Strasbourg province (provincia argentinensia). Probably born at the beginning of the fifteenth century, he must have joined the order sometime in the 1430s. By 1454, he was guardian of the Ruffach friary. At the provincial chapter of that year, he became commissioner and visitator of the Poor Clares of Alspach. The following year, he was elected provincial vicar by the Observant faction at the chapter of Heidelberg (24 April 1455), as successor of the first Observant provincial vicar Nikolaus Caroli. Johann held the vicariate for seven years, until the chapter of Bamberg (23 May 1462), when he was replaced by Johann Schieber. Yet he was again elected vicar at the next provincial chapter (Ruffach, 4 May 1471). In the mean time, he represented ultramontan Observantine interest for his province in Rome as general commissioner, and he again served for a while as the guardian of the Basel friary. After his additional stint as provincial vicar, Johann was relieved from his office at the Tübingen chapter (8 May 1474), to become again guardian of the Basel friary. He was one last time elected to the position of provincial vicar at the chapter of St. Ulrich (20 April 1480). During this last stint, near the end of his life, he also had to step in as temporary general vicar of the Ultramontan Observants, when the latter (Guilelmus Bertho) died during a visitation journey at Ingolstadt on 6 February 1481. Johann Lor died himself a few months later (26 May 1481), while on his way to the general chapter of the Observant family in Burgundy (at Montluçon). As one would expect, Johann was very much involved with the implementation of the regular Observance. This also included an interest into the reform of Clarissan houses (for instance in Bamberg, Munich and Bressanone (Brixen, which was put under authority of the Observant vicar of the Strasbourg province by Cardinal Nicholas of Cusa). Reform statutes for the Bressanone Poor Clares still survive.

manuscripts

Stattuten des wirdigen vatter Johannes von Lor, die er hat geemacht den swestern zu Pryxen darnach die andern: MS Bressannone, Poor Clare Monastery>>. This manuscript copy has been described by its editor Straganz. It was finished in 1517 by the Poor Clare Anna Nymelperger (Abbess between 1509 and 1511). Aside from the statutes (ff. 32r-68r), the manuscripts also includes a German translation of the 1317 reconfirmation by Cardinal Protector Arnaldo of the decrees issued in 1297 by Cardinal Protector Orsini concerning the Franciscan cura monialium obligations towards the Poor Clares (ff. 68r-85v), as well as a German translation of the papal bull issued by Gregory IX on 25 March 1237 to regulate the enclosure of the Poor Clares in the Viterbo monastery (ff. 85v-86r). The statutes, which might have been partially based on comparable regulations issued for the Nuremberg monastery some years earlier, consist of a short introduction and five chapters, dealing with obedience (‘von der gehorsam’), poverty (‘von der heiligen armut’), purity (‘was zu reinigkeit mag fudern’), the liturgy (‘zu dem gotlichen dienst’), and silence (‘von stillikeit und sweigen’). In actual fact, the five chapter include under these headings quite a number of adjacent topics (how to deal with novices, the role of novice master, the role of work in the communal life, forms of correction/punishment etc.).

Joannes de Mendoza (Juan de Mendoza, d. 1619)

There is confusion about his origin. Vázquez makes him a native of Mexico, but Adams suggests he was born at Medellín. Following Sánchez, he came to Guatemala as a young merchant, and took the Franciscan habit there in 1564, in the San Francisco de Guatemala friary. Thereafter he would have been sent back to Mexico for his studies. After his return to Guatemala, he studied and taught indigenous languages. He was apparently well-versed in three or four of them, and wrote books and treatises in each of these. None of these books reached the printing press. He died at the age of c. 80.

Joannes de Minden (de Gemunda/Johannes von Minden, d. 1413)

Friar of the Bremen custody. Entered the order in Lüneburg, and studied at Erfurt, becoming lector principalis there before 1395 and doctor in 1395/6. Therewith first Franciscan Magister regens of the Erfurt Studium generale, after the association of the Franciscan study house in the University of Erfurt (1392). One of his pupils was Christian von Hiddesdorf. After his year as magister regens, Johannes elected provincial minister of the Saxony province. His successor at the Erfurt chair was probably Johannes bon Belgern (Belliger), who also had obtained the magisterium theologiae in Erfyrt. Belgern, in turn was succeeded at the chair of Erfurt by Christian von Hiddesdorf (keeping that position for 20 years). Johannes von Minden remained provincial minister until 1405/6, as the 24th provincial minister of the Saxony province. Thereafter back in the Lüneburg convent. Died on 20 June, 1413. In his many sermons (for sun-and feast days, and Lenten sermons), John appears as a well-educated theologian, particularly well-versed in the works of Bonaventure. L. Meier and V. Honemann remark that, aside from Bonaventure, John also repeatedly quotes Robert Grosseteste, Roger Bacon, John Peckham (which might point to connections between Erfurt and the English schools), as well as Bernard of Clairvaux, Augustine, Athanasius, Cassiodor, Gregory the Great, Pseudo Dionysius, Thomas Aquinas, and various pagan classical authors (Aristotle, Seneca, Cato, Avicenna). His sermons were much appreciated during the fifteenth century. The Postilla super Epistolas Dominicales collection has the nature of a model sermons for fellow friars/students in a school setting. Several of his other collections, such as the Sermones super Evangelia Dominicalia Quadragesimae and the Quadragesimale (surviving in Lüneburg mss) date from his later career.

Joannes de Moncalieri (Giovanni da Moncalieri, 1579-5 August 1655)

OFMCap. Italian friar. Entered the order on 5 March 1605 in Padua after completing his law studies. Was lector of philosophy at Turin (1613-1616), and subsequently guardian and lector at Cuneo (1616-1619). He became definitor and also provincial minister of the new Piemonte province between 1624-1627, and 1631-1635. At the same time, he also was apostolic prefect of the subalpine missions. Between 1626-1631, he accompagnied the minister general of the Capuchin order as socius and counsellor, and in 1633, he as appointed definitor general of the Capuchin order. John was repeatedly used for ambassadorial functions by the order and the curia, and on 29 May 1637, he was elected minister general. During his generalate, he was an active visitator of Capuchin order provinces. He promoted the lecture of disciplinary works [cf his propagation of the use of Zaccaria Boverio’s Annales], and he published various letters and treatises to support a stricter Observance, as well as works on ecclesiastical magement, and the first Capuchin atlas ( the so-called Chorographica Descriptio (Rome, 1643), a geographical and statistical guide of the Capuchin order that was repeatedly updated in times to come). On May 22, 1643, he retired to the Piemonte province, where he became the counsellor of the Duke of Savoie. In 1650, he once more was appointed difinitor general of the order.

Joannes de Monte Corvino (1247-1328, Beijing)

Italiaanse minderbroeder uit Corvino en patriarch van Peking.Voor zijn intrede in de orde actief als soldaat, arts en rechter. Hij maakte zijn eerste lange reis naar Perzië en Armenië tussen 1280 en 1289. In 1289 werd hij door de paus uitgezonden voor missie-activiteiten en diplomatieke taken. Hij moest o.a. brieven meenemen voor de vorsten van Armenië, Antiochië, Georgië, Ethiopië, en de Turkse en Chinese (Mongoolse) leiders. Hij reisde via Armenië en Perzië naar Khanbaliq (Peking) in China, alwaar hij de rest van zijn leven als missionaris actief was en een kerkelijke infrastructuur opbouwde. Vertaalde ook het NT in het mongools. Zijn missie-activiteiten en zijn dood worden beschreven in de kroniek van Joannes Marignolla. Op zijn reizen schreef Joannes de Monte Corvino brieven aan zijn kerkelijke superieuren. Drie daarvan zijn nu nog bekend. Eén is geschreven in India rond 1292-1293, de anderen zijn geschreven in China rond 1305. Deze brieven zijn herhaaldelijk geëditeerd.

Johannes de Montibus (second half thirteenth century)

French friar; probably from Cambrai. Was involved in the peace settlement between the friars minor and the Cambrai chapter of Notre Dame (27-10, 1266: a settlement ratified by Bonaventure and other order officials. Cf. AFH 7 (1914), 251-254). John was confessor of Isabella of France, and repeatedly also of king Louis IX of France. As intimus of the French king, John travelled with Louis IX to Northern Africa and was at the death bed of the king near Tunis (25-08, 1270). He was among the delegation that brought news of the King's death and last wishes back to France. After 1270, John made his rounds as preacher in and near Paris. At least four of his sermons have survived (dating from 1272-1273).

Joannes de Murro (Joannes Minus de Murrovalle, d. 1312)

Franciscan friar, provincial minister of the Marches Province in the 1270s. Bacc. Sent. in Paris in 1283, and in 1284 one of the examinators of the works of Olivi. 1289 Magister of theology in Paris. 1289 lector at the Curia in Rome and in 1291 lector at the Sacro Palatio. Minister general between 1296 and 1304. Cardinal since 1302. Author of a commentary on Daniel, disputed questions, Sermones in Sollemnioribus Festivitatibus (no mss surviving?) and an Epistola Encyclica de Reformatione Antiqui Kalendarii.. Ephrem Longpré claimed to have discovered John's Sentences commentary in a Parisian manuscript (BN lat. 16047). This was disputed by O. Lottin and P. Glorieux. Eventually, Louis-Jacques Bataillon defined this as an autograph manuscript of the secular theologian Pierre de Limoges.

manuscripts

Sermones in Solemnioribus Festivitatibus Habiti:? [Fabricius, IV, 104]

12 quaestiones disputatae, Paris, BNF Lat. 15865 ff. 1-15. Three of these edited in Ephrem Longpré, ‘L’oeuvre scolastique du cardinal Jean de Murro, O.F.M. (d. 1312)’, in: Mélanges Auguste Pelzer (Louvain , 1947), 467-492.

Questiones Quodlibetales: Paris, BN lat. 15858 qq. 42-48 (ff. 21va-24ra). These questions are attributed to John of Murro by Palémon Glorieux. Sylvain Piron is not completely convinced, but suggests that they are possibly the work of the Franciscan master Giovanni di Pershore. See the Studies of Glorieux (1928) and Piron (2007), esp. 341-2.

Eleven quaestiones, Florence, Biblioteca Medicea-Laurenziana, fondo Conv. Soppr. 123, ff. 85ra-87r. Possibly disputed questions and not question fragments from the lost In III Sent., as once thought by Doucet (AFH 47 (1954), 136-139 and AFH 50 (1957), 285. See also Stegmüller, RS, 496a. This manuscript is further described in: Aegidii Romani Opera Omnia, I: Catalogo dei manoscritti (96-151), 1/2* Italia (Firenze, Padova, Venezia), ed. Francesco Punta & Concetta Luna (Florence: Olschki, 1989), 50-69. According to Sylvain Piron these questions disputed by Giovanni while active at the papal curia.

We should not attribute to him the anonymous Sentences commentary kept in MS Paris, BNF Lat. 16407, ascribed to him by Longpré, but not by any later specialist. The discussions in this text on Free Will seem to pertain to the 1260s rather than to the 1290s.

Joannes de Nativitate (Juan de la Natividad, d. 1705)

OFMDisc. Spanish friar. Scotist theologian and philosopher. Born in Villacastín (Segovia). Entered the branch of the Discalceati in the S. Pablo province. Several times guardian in various convents (a.o. Zamora and Toro). Active as professor of theology at the provincial level for incumbent priests in the order. Hence, in 1696, he is found as professor of theology at the San Gabriel convent (Verona), where he authorises the publication of the Antorcha Moral of Juan de la Asunción (Salamanca, 1703). Juan stands in the Discalceati tradition of producing more concise manuals in via Scoti for the training of internal students [cf. also the works of Pedro de Santa Catalina and Tomás de San José]. Together with his younger collaborator Juan de la Trinitate, Juan de la Natividad produced in the convent Nuestra Señora de Cardillejo the Integer Philosophiae Cursus in five volumes [finished after Juan de la Natividad's death.

Born in Sulmona (Abruzzes). Entered the order in the reformed province of Naples and Terra di Lavoro. Minister general of the OFM in 1645. Active pamfletteer and propagator of the missionary calling of the Franciscan order [most of his own writings in that sphere]. Died in his service on 26 Sept. 1648 in Madrid.

Joannes de Parma (Giovanni Buralli da Parma, ca. 1208, Parma - 1289, Camerino) beatus, feast 20 March

Master of logic before his entrance in the order in 1233. Studied theology and read the Sentences in Paris. Was lector in Bolognia and in Naples. Present at the council of Lyons in 1245. Was minister general between 1247 -1257. Legate for pope Innocent IV to Constantinople to arrange a union with the Orthodox church (1249), on request of the Byzantine emperor John III Doukas Vatatzès. This mission was not very succesfull [see work of Franchi]. Worked with Humbert of Romans OP to end the antagonism between the two orders and to strengthen their position over against the criticism of the secular clergy.Tried to mitigate the use of papal privileges, and took important steps to reform Franciscan liturgy (production of a ceremoniale to uniform the recitation of the divine office and the celebration of Mass throughout the order. These Ordinationes Divini Officii were approved on the general chapter of Rome (1257. Cf. AFH 3 (1910), 64-81).Was more or less force to resign because of the scandal concerning Gerard of Borgo San Donnino's joachimistic works. After a period of confinement, he worked as missionary and legate in Greece (in 1288/89), commissioned by pope Alexander IV. John of Parma is one of the heroes in the chronicle of Salimbene [MGH Scriptores XXXII, 21, 294-313, 320-322, 550-553, 718], as well as in the Historia Septem Tribulationum of Angelo Clareno, and in the writings of later Spirituals.

Joannes de Parma (II) (Joannes genesius Quaglia/Joannes Quaia de Parma, d. c. 1398)

Italian friar from Parma. Entered the Franciscan order at an early age (Bologna province). Was sent to England for his lectorate course. Thereafter further studies. By 7 March 1373, he was already bachelor of theology and had taught at various studia generalia of the order (at Bologna in 1367). In 1373, he was appointed at the Franciscan studium of Pisa. Pope Gregory IX therefore asked the bishop of Bologna to have John finish his Sentences lectures pro gradu and subject him to the examinations that would lead to his magisterium, so that he could obtain his licence (BF VI, 499 n. 499; BF VI, no. 1253 indicates that John was made magister bullatus on 7 March 1373. Yet, a magister Joannes de Parma, ord. minorum figures among the examinators of the Franciscan friar Jacques Cortesio). After John thus had become master of theology in 1373 (or shortly thereafter) and had fulfilled his lectorate obligations at the Pisa studium, he became professor of theology at the theology faculty of Bologna (where he examined candidates for the magisterium and the licence on 8 February 1375 and 8 June 1383).Thereafter, he returned to Pisa. The exact date of his death is unknown. He was a fairly productive author, both of academic biblical works and of works that had a more moral/catechetical/homiletic character (On the basis of his Proverbi, he might be called a ‘Christian humanist’ in the same class as John of Wales).

John Quaglia deals with different conditions under which people live and how they nevertheless can aspire for evangelical perfection. The work is divided in four parts (respectively divided in 14, 13, 12, and 12 chapters). After a part dealing with the various conditions in which man can find himself, Quaglia deals with man in the condition of sin, man in a state of virtue, and man in state of blessedness and glory. As Quaglia makes clear, he has called the work a Rosarium, as to gather from the works of philosophers and poets the smelling roses, which are threathened to be extinguished in between the spines of errors and sins. John wrote this work on request of several people, who liked to have a guide to live a saintly life. Cf. the study of Ubald d’Alençon (1904)]

Joannes de Persora (de Perchorie/de Pershore, fl. ca. 1290)

English friar. Before his entrance in the order (?) he composed as magister artium between 1256-74 several astronomical works (such as the Canon Kalendarii). Took up the study of theology and became doctor of theology c. 1289, and 21th regent master of the Oxford studium generale (1290/91). Later he might have taught at Paris and Assisi.

Joannes de Pineda (Juan de Pineda, 1513?-1593/9?)

OFM. Spanish friar, known for his literary prowess in the Castilian vernacular. Born in Medina del Campo or in Madrigal de las Altas Torres. He studied the liberal arts in a Franciscan school setting in Arévalo and then moved on to the University of Salamanca, where he graduated as bachelor of theology in 1540. Entered the order in the Salamanca San Francisco friary (Santiago province) in 1544. Was ordained priest and embarked on an ambulatory preaching career in Castille. Due to problems with fellow friars and superiors, he gave up his preaching and began to write. Yet this brought him to the attention of the Inquisition. He more or less retreated to the more contemplative Concepción province, in the San francisco de Valladolid friary. Later, his problems with superiors and inquisition apparently abated sufficiently for him to work in Salamanca and Saragossa, places that facilitated the publication of his works.

Joannes de Plano Carpini (Giovanni di Piancarpine/Pian del Carpine, 1185/87, Piano de Carpine - 1252, Antivari)

Italian friar. Had a large role in the expansion of the Franciscan order in Middle- and Eastern Europe. Went with Caesarius von Speyer to the German lands in 1221, and established many Franciscan convents as custos and provincial minister of the new German province. On request of Pope Innocent IV, he travelled in 1245 to the Great Khan of the Mongols, Kujuk. He wrote a history/itinerary of this journey that was widely used by other European historians and geographers. In 1248, Giovanni was elected archbishop of Antivari.

Joannes de Romano (Giovanni Belotti da Romano, d. 1685/1692?)

OFMCap. Italian friar and Franciscan missionary in Congo and Angola. Born at Romano (Lombardy). Entered the Capuchin order in the Brescia province early in life. In 1671, he travelled as a missionary to Congo (where the Capuchins had been active since 1621). After an illness, he travelled to Brazil. After his return to Italy in 1680, he wrote two works on missions in Africa (esp. Congo and Angola), which remained unpublished. He also composed a range of letters devoted to missionary issues, several of which are published in the Archives Congolaises (Brussels, 1919), 91-103. On 20 July 1682, he was appointed prefect for the missions in Angola (Luanda), and returned to Africa. He died in his mission in 1685 (or on his way back to Europe in February 1692?).

Joannes de Rupescissa (Jean de Rocquetaillade, ca. 1310 - after 1365)

Born at Marcolès (Cantal), near Aurillac (Auvergne; cf. Liber Ostensor, MS Vat.Ross 753 f. 148v). Entered the Franciscan order in 1332 after five years of study at the University of Toulouse (studying liberal arts/philosophy, and devoting himself to alchemy, which resulted in his Liber de quinta essentia). Continued his studies (esp. theology) after his entry in the order in the sub-provincial school network (predominantly at theToulouse studium). Around 1335,when he had a dream (in which he was transported to China and saw the Antichrist in the disguise of a child in the neighbourhood of Zayton. Some elements of this dream seemed to be confirmed thereafter in a meeting between Jean de Rocquetaillade and the Franciscan bishop of Zayton, who happened to be in France at the time), Jean became convinced of his own visionary qualities. Between 1340 and 1344 he was living in the Aurillac convent, where he began to propagate his visions on the approach of Antichrist, annoying his guardian and the provincial Guillaume Farinier. The latter ordered Jean’s imprisonment in the Figeac convent (December 1344) for his radical ideas about Franciscan poverty and his eschatological visions, which went hand in hand with attacks on the Avignon Papacy. Was kept in confinement in several convents of the Aquitaine province (Figeac, Martel, Brive, Donzenac, Limoges, and Saint-Junien (where he was granted more liberty)). After his transfer to Toulouse, he received a sympathetic hearing by the inquisition (the Dominican inquisitor Jean de La Molineyrie could not find any heretical tendency), yet his own Aquitaine provincial minister, Guillaume Farinier, made sure that he was again imprisoned, first in Toulouse, and then in the convent of Rieux. Around this time, Jean suffered a fracture in his leg, which was not well treated, as well as other severe illnesses. Nevertheless, Jean survived the plague epidemic of 1348. The new provincial minister of Aquitaine, Raoul de Cornac, ordered Jean’ stransfer to Castres (August 1349). Yet the friars responsible for his transfer brought him to Avignon, so that Jean could defend himself before the pope. Jean arrived in Avignon on August 17, 1349. His process started in October of that year. An uncompromising Jean accused the pope and the college of cardinals of simonist practises. During the process, Jean was kept in the papal prison (the Soudan, reserved for religious people), sharing a cell with the lunatic and sadist English cleric Simon Legat (episodes of which are described in the Liber Ostensor). Jean stayed for several years in the papal prison, where he was able to write, to receive visitors, and sometimes was questioned further by cardinals and other officials, yet also suffered from bad treatment. Some of the cardinals, notably the French cardinal-protector of the Franciscan order, Elias de Talleyrand-Périgord, took some interest in him, which lead to an amelioration of his conditions. In 1354, another process concerning Jean’s orthodoxy was started, lead by the Cistercian cardinal Guillaume Court. As no heretical views could be detected, Jean finally was released from prison on 9 November 1356 (a liberation ‘shown’ to Jean by the Virgin Mary in a vision on 9 May 1356). After his release from prison, Jean was kept in some kind of confinement in Avignon, until, by 1360, pope Innocent VI apparently transfered Jean to the castle of Brignoles (the castle of the Orsini family at Bagnoles? Cf. Bignami-Odier (1981), 83 n. 57), where he again was confined but would have received better treatment (cf. remarks of the chroniclers Jean le Bel and Froissart). Accounts of the apostolic chamber show that, between June and December 1365, Jean received several donations. By then, Jean had fallen ill, and was hospitalised in the convent of the friars minor at Avignon. Thereafter he disappears from view. Both inside and outside his cell, he wrote many alchemical and prophetical writings, heavily influenced by Joachimist ideas (as well as by prophetical traditions inspired by the Vaticinaria, the writings of Hildegard, Peter John Olivi, Arnold of Villanova, Robert d’Uzès etc.). In all, he probably composed more that 30 works. Seven of these have survived until this day (for the ‘lost’ works, see the studies Bignami-Odier). His prophecies had a great influence on late medieval and early modern Latin and vernacular prophetical traditions throughout Europe.

Litterae. Several letters survive, one to the archbishop of Toulouse, one to the cardinal of Ostia, one to cardinal Talleyrand-Périgord, and the letter known as the Apologie des Oiseaux (see under editions). This Apologie would have a large afterlife, not in the least because it was used by Wyclif in the 1370s (cf. Wyclif’s De Civili Dominio).

Epistola Praedicens Quosdam Eventus et Tribulationes : Bruges, Bibl. Ville 416 ff. 141r-160r (13.9.1359) [=? Apologie des Oiseaux? Check]

Sexdequiloquium. This text was found several years ago in a village farm house near Nancy and brought to the attention of Franciscan scholars early 2008. It is the first text in a substantial manuscript of 257ff, dating from the middle or the later 15th century. The Sexdequiloquium was meant to be the first book of a larger De lumine luminum fidei christiane. The Sexdequiloquium dates from 1352/53, and seems to have been written while he was imprisoned in Avignon. As is, it is a reply divided in sixteen parts to the verdict given by Francis of Meyronnes on passages from the Apocalypse commentary by Petrus Joannis Olivi in the context of the last phase of the process against Olivi's work in 1325. The work mentions various works by Joannes de Rupescissa that have not yet been found, such as the Defensorium immaculate virginis ecclesie contra malignantium ecclesiam babilonicam meretricem; the letter Declaracio papalis monarchie; Directorium simplicium electorum; Liber coadiutorium veritatis; Quadrigentiloquium Christi adversus iudeos (an exegetical 'proof' of the Trinity and the Advent of Christ in the text of the Old testament [relationship with the famous quodlibet by Nicholas of Lyra?]. For a detailed study of this newly found work, see the article of Piron (2009), Muzerelle (2009), Mesler (2009) and Lerner (2009) in the third volume of the electronic journal Oliviana: http://oliviana.revues.org/sommaire322.html

Elected bishop of Rennes in 1297/1298, and bishop of Lisieux in 1299. Preached on the occasion of the translation of king Louis of France’s body in St. Denis (25 August 1298).

Joannes de Sancto Antonio (Juan de San Antonio/Juan Suaréz de Rivera, 30-12, 1682 -07-02, 1744)

OFMDisc. Spanish friar, historian and bibliographer. Born as the fourth son of a Galician doctor. Studied medicine at Salamanca (bachelor's degree), and entered the order at the San José or Calvario friary. Taught theology at Segovia between 1716 and 1719. Appointed definitor and chronicler of his order province (San Pedro province) in 1725. In 1728 appointed ‘Revisor por el Santo Tribunal de las Bibliotecas del obispado de Zamora’ and ‘Visitador de las santas provincias Descalzas de San Gabriel y San Diego’. In 1729, he was made general chronicler of the order. Between 1731 and 1734 he was custos and between 1734 and 1737 order provincial. Although he reputedly was in bad health and suffered from severe bouts of rhumatism, he was rather active as order administrator and kept up a large output of historical and bibliographical works. Most well-known for his Bibliotheca Universa Franciscana, which mentions at least 5728 Franciscan authors, and for which he visited many libraries in Italy, Portugal and Spain.

Joannes de Sancto Athanasio (Juan de San Athanasio, 1659 - 03-03, 1711)

Portuguese friar and missionary. Born in Coïmbra. Departed for Brazil as Franciscan missionary and eventually ended up as president and procurator of the Franciscan mission in the St. Anthony province. Wrote several theological and missionary works, such as the Roteiro moral para missionários and the Roteiro doctrinal. These works were lost in 1834, due to the suppression of the religious orders by the Portuguese government. One of Juan’s letters still survives. This letter, dating from 1698,develops interesting concrete missionary perspectives.

Joannes de Sancta Maria (Juan Valeria de Santa María/Gaspar Alonso de Valeria/Juan Muñoz de Valeria?, 1642-1701)

Spanish friar. Came from a wealthy family. Entered the strict Alcantarine branch of the Franciscans in Naples in 1669, after some spectacular public displays of piety. Fulfilled a range of administrative functions within the Alcantarine branch of the order (In the kingdom of Naples and Spain; also active as ambassador for the Spanish king (a.o. in Vienna), and as representative of the Holy See. Was appointed bishop of Lerida in 1700. Rather rigid in his reformist views, his activities as order administrator caused some opposition from within. Well-known for his propagation of the writings of Miguel de Molinos and Franciscan quietism, currents that were under suspicion of heresy (apparently without severe consequences for Juan’s reputation of orthodoxy). A range of his works have survived, many of which pertain to the administration of the order and his ambasadorial activities.

Joannes de Sancto Laurentio (Johannes von Köln, fl. ca. 1350 and after?)

Franciscan friar from Cologne, named 'Johannis de parochia sancti Laurentii in Colonia ordinis fratrum Minorum by the Franciscan scribe Hermann Doering (see under manuscripts). The name Joannes de Sancto Laurentio/Laurentius Minorita Coloniensis/Joannes Coloniensis also appears in other manuscripts and incunables. The identity of Joannes de Sancto Laurentio/Johannes von Köln is uncertain. A number of friars with the name Johannes of Köln/Joannis Coloniensis have left works behind (see also under Joannes Colonienis and Joannes Bloemendal), and it is not at all clear whether some of these names belonged to different persons. After reading Annette Löffler's 2007 essay, I am inclined not to identify Joannes de Sancto Laurentio with any of the other friars known as Joannes Coloniensis/Johann von Köln (including Joannes Bloemendal), but to see him as a different author, in all likelyhood active during the second half of the fourteenth century, and possibly already in the order when Bertrand de Turre and Nicholas of Lyra were still alive. The Leipzig manuscript studied by Löffer and that contain the Postilla Evangeliorum was once in the possession of the Franciscan theologian and book collector Joannes Rothaw. Specific characteristics of that particular manuscript would indicate that it was also envisaged to be used (probably by Rothaw or by the scribee Hermann Doering) in school disputations.

manuscripts

Postilla Evangeliorum: MS Leipzig, Universitätsbibliothek 684 (an. 1455). This manuscript was once in the possession of Joannes Rothaw. The second half of the manuscript was copied by Hermann Doering, possibly a friar in the Cologne friary, who names Joannes de Sancto Laurentio as the author of the sermons; Cologne, Gymnasialbibliothek Folio 174 (an. 1414). ascribed in the 1993 study by Vennebusch as the work of Laurentius Minorita Coloniensis; Utrecht, Universiteitsbibliothek 356 (2nd half 15th cent.); Liège, Bibliothèue du Grand Séminaire 6 H 7 (without ascription). A set of Postilla super Evangelia ascribed to Joannes de Sancto Laurentio has also survived in MS Berlin, Staatsbibliothek Theol. lat. fol. 696 ff. 193r-206v. This partial fragment, copied in or shortly after 1458, has the following title: 'Postille super ewangelia dominicalia totius anni edite per reverendum fratrem Johannem de sancto Laurentio ordinis fratrum Minorum oriundum de Colonia'. Annette Löffler has established that this collection does not have the same sermons as the Leipzig manuscript, and either is a text witness of a second collection by Joannes de Sancto Laurentio or a collection by one of the other friars also known as John of Cologne/John of Bloemendal. The collection surviving in the Leipzig, Cologne, Utrecht (?) and Liège (?) manuscripts is clearly a compilation. Löffler (2007), 317 quotes MS Leipzig UB 684, f. 1ra: 'Ignorantie proprie subvenire cupiens ac aliorum simplicium predicatorum commodo et utilitati intendens has evangeliorum dominicalium ferialium et quorundam festinalium postillationes ex diversorum doctorum scriptis studiosius compilavi.' These doctors are Bertrand de Turre/Bertrand de la Tour, Nicholas of Lyra, Alexander of hales and possibly Nicholas of Gorra OP. Löffler concludes that the author possibly compiled the work sometime during the second half of the fourteenth century. Based on the author/compilor's 'intimate' way of addressing Nicholas of Lyra and Bertrand de Turre/Bertrand de la Tour, Löffler suggests that the author/compilor might have known them personally. That would mean he was already in the order during the 1340s. With the exception of one sermon by Bertrand, most sermons taken from the four main sources are reworked rather thoroughly.

editions

Postilla Evangeliorum (Brussels: Apud Fratres Vitae Communis, 1480). The relationship betwween this and other incunables and the manuscript version of the Postilla is uncertain. See on this the remarks by Löffler (2007), 315.

OFMConv. Italian friar. Translator of Dante's Comedia. Provincial minister. Bishop of Fermo (1410) and Fano (1419) in Umbria.

Joannes de Silva (Juan da Silva, fl. c. later 16th and early 17th cent.)

Friar from the Castile province. First soldier in service of Spain and active in military campaigns against the Turks. He also served in the army of the Duke of Alva during his military campaigns in the Netherlands in the late 1560s and early 1570s. He also took part in the doomed Spanish Armada. When he joined the order, he became active in New Spain and Florida (1590s), and from Florida, he sent a special report to the Spanish King on January 9, 1596. Later, he was keen to make the Austral lands of the South Seas a Franciscan mission territory. Juan de Silva known for his Memorials/Advertencias Importantes from 1613 and 1621 to the Spanish crown related to his missionary plans and endeavors. One of his ideas was to establish a Franciscan missionary college in Lima.

manuscripts and editions

Memoriales informativos, tocantes al bien espiritualy temporal de todos los Regnos de las India (Madrid, 1613). Cf Madrid, Biblioteca Nacional, 2/51255

Advertencias importantes, acerca del buen Govierno, y Administracion de las Indias, assi en lo espiritual, como en lo temporal (Madrid, 1621). This contains three memorials, the first two of which are revised versions of those issued in 1613. The thir memorial in this edition (ff. 52-110v) contains info and plans concerning the Austral lands. These memorials were printed after examination of the Council of the Indies. According of Celsus Kelly, p. 282-283: 'In general the three memorials dealt with methods and practices already in use or to be adopted in the future regarding exploration, conquests, the propagation of the faith, etc. The First Memorial (ff. 5-36) insists that the only way to preach the Gospel was that adopted by Christ and the Apostles and denounces as iniquitous the two methods used by the conquistadores, namely, either by the sword preparing the way for the Gospel, or (as is also now the practice) the sword accompanying or coming after the Gospel (f. 10v). The Second Memorial (ff. 36v-52) deals with the laws and practice regarding repartimiento and servicio personal, with its accompanying evils and abuses so contrary to the divine and natural laws. He urges the king to root out from every part of his realms at once both systems which are nothing but "most scandalous and unexampled coercion and tyrannical persecution." The Third Memorial (f. 52-110v) treats of the title justifying Spanish rights in the Indies and declares that it is primarily and principally spiritual; it restates the principle enunciated in the two previous memorials and emphasizes that the Gospel should be preached apostolically, i.e. with kindness and suavity, without arms, escorts of soldiers, without any kind of force or compulsion (f. 54v). Silva singles out for special condemnation the evils of la mita in the mines of Potosí and Huancavélica. In this memorial also Silva deals not only with the Franciscan plan to send missionaries to the Austral Realms and Provinces but also with its riches. He held as certain that the fleets of Solomon laden with gold and silver and other great riches were from these Austral Provinces and that the Queen of the South (Austria) who came from the ends of the earth to see Solomon was also from these Austral Lands.'

Joannes de Sommerfeld (ca. 1275-80- 1348/1361)

Friar from Saxony; theologian and exegete. Born in Sommerfeld (Niederlausitz). Guardian of Görlitz in 1342 and 1347/8. Known for his Psalterium Glossatum,which had considerable popularity in the fourteenth and fifteenth century, and in the early fifteenth century received a reworking by Ulrich von Prague and someone else (cf. Honemann, 756 and Stegmüller, Rep. Bib. no. 4966). The work of Sommerfeld is predominantly an abbreviation of the Psalm commentary of Peter Lombard and the Glossa Ordinaria, and presents a very streamlined and consistent christological exegesis of the Psalms. Sommerfeld was also responsible for the production of a catalogue for the library of the Görlitz friary (in 1348, see Meyer, ‘Psalterium Glossatum’, 326; Honemann (2004/2008). He died in Görlitz on 18 October, sometime between 1348 and 1361.

Joannes de Utino (a Mortiliano/Longus/de Udine/Giovanni Longo, d. ca. 1363)

Italian friar from Mortegliano, near Udine. Probably entered the Franciscan order before c. 1320 at the convent of Friuli. Received a thorough theological education. Apparently master of theology. Active as inquisitor in L’Aquila, Venice, and the March of Treviso. He died in the Friuli friary in or around 1363. Sbaralea ascribes to him various works, namely a Pantheon (which is mentioned in the 1387 Repertorio of the Cividale convent), a Compilatio Nova Super Tota Biblia (also known as the Summa de Aetatibus/Compilatio Librorum Historialium ab Adam usque ad Christum), and the Expositio Orationis Dominicalis cum Oppositione quae inter Virtutes et Vitia Intercedit. Of these, only the Compilatio/Summa de Aetatibus seems to have survived. This work, dedicated to the patriarch of L’Aquila and finished between 1344 and 1346, amounts to a (rather well-written) reworking and extension of Peter Comestor’s Historia Scholastica, with recourse to several additional sources (Peter of Poitiers, Paulinus of Venice (Paulinus Minorita), Albert of Aix, Heinrich of Munich and Jacob of Voragine). The first part of the work ends with the story of Christ’s passion and emperor Octavian. The second part of the Compilatio, which also has survived separately as the Compendium Romanorum Pontificum et Imperatorum, is a pope-emperor chronicle along the lines of the Flores Temporum and the chronicle of Martin of Troppau. This part presents the history of popes and emperors in two catalogues up till the early fourteenth century. It is quite possible that this second part was not written by Giovanni himself. Various Latin and German manuscripts also contain a third part, devoted to the history of Hungary and the Hungarian kings, starting with king Stephen. This part almost certainly stemms from a Hungarian compilator.

The Compilatio was rather popular during the closing centuries of the Middle Ages, and has survived in a range of manuscripts, both in Latin and in various vernaculars.
