Jacobus Blanchi de Alexandria (Brancus/dei Bianchi/de Albis/de Alexandria, d. ca. 1340)

OM. Italian friar from Alessandria in Piemonte. Priest or cappellanus in 1316. Schneyer would like to identify him with Jacobus de Blanconibus de Mevania OP! Yet he seems to have been a Franciscan friar, member of the ‘famiglia’ of the preacher-king Robert of Anjou. Ca. 60 sermones de tempore and another 50 sermones de festis have survived. Juan de San Antonio also mentions a Jacobus Albensis/Brancus from the Genua province, who would have been active around the same time and who would have created a poetic work on the qualities of a good superior, based on patristic sayings and rules taken from canon law, as well as philosophical and metaphysical works and a treatise on the immaculate conception of the Virgin. Yet it is unclear to me as to whether this Jacobus Albensis/Brancus should be identified with Jacobus Blanchi de Alexandria, or rather with Jacobus Henricus de Alba. Are these the one and the same person?

He is known to have held and apparently also published a funerary oration at the occasion of the death of King Philip II of Spain in 1598. Jacobus died in 1618. He would have written a number of other works and was encouraged by his fellow friar and one-time socius Henry Willot, to make them ready for print, yet for most of the works in question that apparently did not happen.

Jacobus Bolduc (Jacques Bolduc, d. 1646)

OFMCap. French friar. Entered the Capuchins at Paris in 1580, to make his final profession on 18 August 1581. Became professor of theology. After some teaching assignments, he became provincial definitor in 1590. Between 1610 and 1620, he was guardian of the convents of Beauvais, Auxerre, Étampes, Pontoise and Montfort-l’Amaury. After this decade of administrative charges, he was allowed to devote himself to biblical studies. He died on 8 September 1646 [1650 according to Juan de San Antonio].

According to Sbaralea, several works by Bolduc and Marco d’Aniano were harmonised and presented by an anonymous Spanish Capuchin friar, resulting in the Harmonia del bien y del mal. Duo sonoro (Madrid, 1682). Several works appeared to oppose the work of Bolduc. See for instance L’Anti-Babau, ou anéantissement de l’attaque imaginaire du R.P. Jacques Bolduc Pr.

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

OM. Italian friar. Franciscan theologian and inquisitor. Lector of theology of Milan and alleged 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 contra Hereticos 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.

The Summa Contra Hereticos has been edited as an anonymous work by D. Bazzocchi, L'erezia catara. Disputationes nonnulae adversus hereticos, Vol. 2 (Bologna, 1920), I-CCXIV (amounts to a partial translation); W.L. Wakefield & A.P.

Pseudo Capelli is more honest and careful in representing the positions of the Cathars than most authors of anti-heretical treatises.

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

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

OM. 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. Italian friar. Born in Monteprandone (Ascoli Piceno). Entered the Observant branch 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 May 1467 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 preaching style. 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.

works

Remark: Many of Giacomo della Marca's works are to be found in the MSS of the communal libraries of Monteprandone, Falconara, Modena, and Foligno, the Vatican 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.

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).

On f. 4r-v is found a Tabula Librorum Iacobi: a list of books that Giacomo possessed at the end of his life (for listing see Lasic, 480-482). After this list, the sermons themselves start on f. 8r (for a more full description, see Lasic, 483-515): De usuris (ff. 8r-12v); De mendacio (ff.12v-17v); De gloriosissimo Jeronimo (ff. 18r-24v); De obedientia et fidelitate subditorum dominorum temporalium (ff. 25r-27r); De resurrectione Domini (ff. 27r-31v); De magnificentia et confusione sacre fidei christiane (ff. 46r-48v);De Epiphania (ff. 48v-53v); De excommunicatione (ff. 53v-56v); De reliquis et veneratione sanctorum (fragment: f. 57r-v); De miseria humana (ff. 58r-60v); De paxione (ff. 60v-62v); De S.

In addition, we find in an appendix to volume III a Sermo de malignitate peccati mortalis: Dominica eadem (III, 390-401); a sermo de mirabili virtute patientie (dominica 17, III, 402-411); and a Sermo de mirabili gloria et beneficio angelorum erga homines:in eadem dominica [resurrectionis] (III, 412-422). 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 be granted), 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: dimicte nobis; 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. Secundo, assuefacere eos ad minus in septennio et ante et post ad confessionem et ecclesiarum visitationem, ut devotos et reverentes circa spiritualia se habeant. 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.]

[deals with a number of ‘dialogues with Paterines’, several exemplars have come down to us from the 13th century onwards, including the 15th-century Dialogus contra hereticos bosnenses and the Tractatus ad catholice fidei defensionem attributed to Giacomo della Marca, who was also active in Bosnia, and through a study of the manuscript witnesses wants to make clear that the attribution of the latter two texts is not as simple and evident as thus far has been thought. The author argues in any case that the Tractatus, surviving in the convent library of the Franciscan house of Cherso, MS A 10 [no. 2688], ff. 22r-32v is just a version of the 14th-century Disputatio inter catholicum et paterinum hereticum written by a certain lay person named Giorgio, and that this work itself was of interest to Observant friars, including Giovanni da Capestrano and Giacomo della Marca, dealing with heretics]; Lorenzo Turchi, 'Il tema de pace in Giacomo della Marca', in: Francescani e politica nelle autonomie cittadine dell'Italia basso-medievale: Atti del convegno di studio svoltosi in occasione della XXVI edizione del Premio internazionale Ascoli Piceno: (Ascoli Piceno, Palazzo dei Capitani, 27-29 novembre 2014), ed.

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

OM. 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.

Jacobus de Molfetta (Melficto/Melphitensis/Paniscocti Melfictensis/Giacomo Biancolini-Pancotto/Giacomo Paniscotti, 1489-1561)

OFM & OFMCap. Italian friar. Entered the Observant branch in 1509 in Apulia, to pass to the Capuchins of the Bari (Naples?) 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.

works

Opus in Expositione Psalmi ‘Domine quis habitat’ (Venice: aedibus Aurelii Pincii, 1535). Accessible via Archive.org and via Google Books. [provides a clear introduction in eleven parts 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.]

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.]

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). The 1570 edition is accessible via Google Books. 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. Documenti e testimonianze del primo secolo III/2, ed. C. Cargnoni (Perugia, 1991), 3206.]

Juan de San Antonio and Sbaralea also mention a Tractatus de mortificatione carnis, a separate work De Immaculata V.M. Conceptione, and Conciones diversa, among other works, but we think at least some of these have to be identified with parts of the works mentioned above.

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

OFM. French (Basque?) frir. 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 1424)

OM. 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. German friar. Born in Zwickau (Saxony), 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)

OMOBS. Italian friar. Born in Perugia, early 15th century. Influential merchant, until he entered the Franciscan Observant branch 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 La 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 Reggius/Raggius (Giacomo Raggi/Jacobo Raggi/Joannes Franciscus Giragus, fl. mid 17th cent.)

OFMCap. Italian friar of noble Genoese descent. Related to Cardinal Lorenzo Raggi. Member of the Capuchin Genoa province. Lector of theology and provincial definitor. It has been suggested that Giacomo Francesco Raggi OFMCap is a Pseudonym for Johannes Franciscus Giragus, SJ., alleged author of the Dubiorum centuria de regimine regularium (Lyon, 1646), but several elements of the various Centuria mentioned below, such as the praise for the excellence of the mendicant orders at the beginning of the De regimine regularium prima centuria, the emphasis on specific elements of Franciscan poverty [Pars tertia, Dub. LXXXV, LXXXVI, ]as well as the approbation of the work by the Capuchin order leadership (Fortunato Cadero, Giovanni da Montecalerio), and most of all the acknowledgment of the author that he has previously produced a Dubiorum Centuria de regimini regularium sub nomine Ioannis Francisci Giragi, and that this was an assumed name, seem to indicate that the real author of this work was a Capuchin friar.

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

OM. 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 Urban VI, 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 Castiglione 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?))

OM. 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)

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

OM. 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. If we accept the argument of Daniele Solvi concerning the didactic elements of the Tractatus, he might have been active for a while as novice master or in a comparable instruction situation at the Assisi friary. 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.

works

Stabat Mater (ascription): many, many manucripts, a.o. Berlin, Hamilton, 348 f. 153v. This is also widely available in print. See for instance 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.

Tractatus utilissimus et sufficientissimus qualiter homo potest cito pervenire ad cognitionem veritatis, ed. E. Menesto, Le prose latine attribuite a Jacopone da Todi, Studi Medievali, 18 (Bologna, 1979), 75-86; 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). 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.’
A partial Italian translation by Francesco Costa of the Laude, the Tractatus and the Verba can also be found in: Mistici Francescani. Secolo XIV, II (Assisi-Bologno, 1997), 33-170.

For editions, see: 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 & review by Aleksander Horowski in Collectanea Franciscana 89:1-2 (2019), 364-367. 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.’]
A partial Italian translation by Francesco Costa of the Laude, the Tractatus and the Verba can also be found in: Mistici Francescani. Secolo XIV, II (Assisi-Bologno, 1997), 33-170.

Juan de San Antonio mentions several other Doctrina, cantica, Sententiae, Epistolae etc., but these should probably be identified with parts from the Verba, the Tractatus, and the Laude.

Juan de San Antonio mentions also works on the canonical hours, clerical elections, the enclosure of female religious and simony. But those works have not been identified.

Joannes Adriaens vander Goude (Jan Adriaans van der Goude, ca. 1506 - after 1556)

OFM. Dutch friar. 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.

works

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. Accessible via the Dutch Royal Library in The Hague and via Google Books.

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)

OM. 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.

works

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, a provisional list can be made, in the full understanding that this entry on Juan Gil still needs a lot of work, especially to integrate the insights of the latest studies. For several bibliographical references and especially for a copy of the Studia Zamorensia Segunda Etapa, 13 (Zamora: UNED, 2014), we would like to thank Prof. Cándida Ferrero Hernández.

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)

OMObs. Swiss/German friar. 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.

works

Predigten. 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. (…) Die erst hindrung ist von inen, die andern von ussern, die dritt von obnen. 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. (…) Züm dritten spricht gott: Gang von mir durch demiettigkait nach der achtung (…)Züm vierten spricht gott zü dem menschen: Gang in dich selbs durch bekantnisz diner gebrechen, kranckheit und arbaitsäligkait.

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

OM. Italian 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. Belgian friar from Liege (Luik/Lüttich). 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 Pellens 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.

Joannes Aquensis (Jan Bosák Vodranský, ca. 1460-ca. 1534)

OM. Czech friar. Former Ultraquist turned Observant Franciscan.

works

Annihilatio Triplicis Funiculi Innominati Haeretici: MS 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 (Pilzen, 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, issued as Lidská monstra (Vokabular zvany Lactifer IV)/De monstruosis hominibus (Vocabularius dictus Lactifer IV), ed. Hana Sedinova, Fontes Latini Bohemorum, 8 (Prague, OIKOYMENH, 2013), 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.

To be continued.

Joannes Augustinus Morfeus (Juan Agustín Morfi, fl. 18th cent.)

OFM. 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 stagnation of Spanish Mexico.

Bernardino (also in 1617), reformatory visitator of the Calabrian friaries (1624), 'compagno' dell'Ordine (1625), 'assistente dell'Ordine' (1630), 'direttore spirituale dei collegi' in Calabria, 'rector seminariorum et reformator conventuum' in several South Italian Conventual provinces), and in the context of which he was tasked to implement the reform constitutions first issued by Montanari da Bagnacavallo (1617) and later backed by Urban VIII to help transform the cultural and religios life of the Italian Conventual branch. In 1630 by papal brief appointed provincial minister ad interimof the San Niccolò province. In the same year made secretary/socius of Minister General Cassia. In 1632 appointed Vicar General and subsequently, in 1635 elected Minister General. He held this position until 1647. He died the Capodimonte friary of Naples in 1656.

Joannes Baptista de Loyola (Juan Bautista de Loyola, fl. ca. 1650)

OFM. Spanish friar and member of the Burgos province. More than once provincial minister. In or around 1653 he wrote a life of the Poor Clare Juana de Rodrigues (and later would testify in the context of her diocesan beatification process in 1660). The vita, entitled Nacimienti, crianza y vida admirable de la V. Sor Juana, was apparently never printed, but ended up in the archives of the Monastery of Santa Elena de Najera. Yet a few decades later, this text formed the basis for the Carmelite friar Juan de Santo Tomás' Dibuxo o brebe compedio de la admirable vida de la venerable Me Iuana Rodriguez, en la Religión de Santa Clara, Iuana de Iesus Ma., peregrina en su patria de BURGOS (Burgos, Archivo Silveriano, MS 31, and this text was later also included in the second volume of the printed works of Juana).

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

OFMConv. Italian 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 Martini (Giovanni Battista Martini/Giambattista Martini/'padre' Martini, 1706-1784)

OFMConv. Italian friar from Bologna. Composer, musician and musicologist. He was the son of a violinist. He learned to play that instrument, and also received instruction in singing and clavecimbel under Angelo Predieri and Antonio Riccieri. He joined the Conventual Franciscans in Bologna in 1721, completing his noviciate in Lugo, to return to Bologna thereafter, where he became chapel master in 1725. After he was ordained priest (February 1729), he continued his musical education under Giacomo Perti. In the following decades, Martini established himself as a musicological authority, who corresponded with many intellectuals and leading figures of his time. He was also member of the local Instituta delle Scienze ed Accademia Filarmonica, and had many pupils, among whom a number of talented composers, including Johann Christian Bach, Gluck and the young Mozart. Martini spent many years as chapel master of St. Francesco in Bologna, and gathered a huge musical library with ca. 17000 books. He died in Bologna after a long illness in 1784.

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

OFMConv. Italian friar. 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 Vinones (Juan Battista Viñones, c. 1480-1550)

OMObs & OFM. 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.

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.

works

Espejo de conciencia que trata de todos los estados assí eclesiásticos como seglares para regir y examinar las conciencias (Salamanca, 1498 (2x)). The early date of this first edition would suggest that at least this first version 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)

OM. French 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 spiritual 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?)

OM. English 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 and Juan de San Antonio, Barwick was also the author of a treatise De formis, and a collection of astrological predictions.

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

OFM. French Observant 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. 1540)

OMObs. Belgian friar. 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. He died on 2 November 1540.

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

OM. German friar. 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.

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

OMObs. Dutch friar. There is confusion about the identity of this 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.

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.)

OM. English 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)

OM. 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]

Joannes Briesmannus (Johann Briesmann, first half 16th cent.)

OFM. German Franciscan friar from Cottbus. He joined the Franciscan order as member of the Saxony province, and studied the university of Frankfurt an der Oder in 1518. Graduate studies in Wittenberg followed from January 1520 onward. There he worked as lector of theology in the Franciscan friary and completed his graduate studies at Wittenberg university, receiving the licence of theology in October 1521 and the doctorate on 1 February 1522. The next day he joined the theology faculty as professor. In Wittenberg, or already before, he became susceptible to Luther's teachings. Yet when the Franciscans were forced to leave Wittenberg, Briesmann still identified as a friar and went back to his home friary in Cottbus, where he held a preaching assignment but also engaged in discussions with his fellow friars about the value of monastic vows. This caused him to show his hand in a public letter Unterricht und Ermahnung, which was printed in Wittenberg. Briesmann left his friary and with the assistance of Georg Spalatin and Luther was allowed to return to Wittenberg at the end of 1522. In subsequent years he got married (June 1525, with Elisabeth Sackheim, former abbess of the Marienkloster in Löbenicht near Königsberg) and became an important figure in the propagation of the Lutheran cause in Prussia and Livland, with pamphlets/theses, the creation of liturgical 'Ordnungen' (Kurze Ordnung des Kirchendienstes samt einer Vorrede von Ceremonien; Ordnung vom äußerlichen Gottesdienst und Artikel der Zeremonien, wie es in den Kirchen des Herzogtums zu Preußen gehalten wird, etc.) and preaching. See for more information the literature below as well as https://second.wiki/wiki/johann_briesmann

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

OM. French friar. Lectured on the Sentences pro exercitio at Metz and Toul. Guardian and corrector of the Parisian convent. Received the licence of theology at Paris after reading the Senteces pro gradu 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)

OMConv & OMObs. Dutch 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.

Various other sermons have survived in a scattered matter in other manuscripts. For their relations and the order in which they found their way into modern editions, see the studies of Benjamin de Troeyer and Thom Mertens (2007).
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.

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)

OM. 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, Digby 153), and wrote notes and comments in the margin.

Joannes Burgundus (Jean Bourgeois, d. 1494)

OM. French friar. 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.

Contiene los progresos, que en ella ha hecho la religion serafica desde el año 1219 hasta el de 1632 (Madrid: Por Iuan García Infaçon, 1684). An Italian reworking, prepared by Angelico di Milano, appeared as the Historia chronologica della provincia de Siria e Terra santa di Gerusalemme, dove nostro Salvatore operó le maraviglie della redenzione, trans. Angelico da Milano (Venice: Antonio Tivani, 1694). This Italian texts sometimes includes info not present in the Spanish original. These are rather detailed and readable chronological accounts of the Franciscans in the Holy Land, their settlements and vicissitudes, as well as the indulgences to obtain and tributes/taxes to pay, divided in eight books. The accounts end with the conflict with the Greeks over the Holy Sepulcher in the years 1631/2. Juan apparently was working on a sequel top his Chronica. Yet that did not see the printing press.

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

OMObs. French friar. 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)

OFM. Belgian friar 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 (St. Vaast, present-day France, Pas-de-Calais dept.) 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)

OM. Irish friar. 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.
For other Irish Franciscan chronicles/chroniclers, see: : 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 Colganus (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.)

OM & OFM. French friar. 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.)

OMConv. 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. 16th cent.)

OFM. 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), and some explanations surrounding decisions of the Council of Trent. None of these works seem to have reached the printing press.

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

OM. German? friar, According to some a Dutch friar, and member of the Cologne province. According to others a German friar and member of the Saxony province. Famous preacher, whose works (Sermones de Tempore et de Sanctis) survived in many mss. According to Stephen Mossman (2012), Johannes 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)

OFM. 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 Crespi (Juan Crespi, 1721-1782)

OFM. Spanish friar from Majorca. He entered the Franciscan order at the age of 17 and subsequently became active in New Spain, traveling with Francisco Palou and Junipero Serra to the New World in 1749. In 1767 he is found as guardian of the Misión La Purísima Concepción de Cadegomó (Baja California Peninsula). Twenty years later, in 1769, he traveled with soldiers and a missionary group that included Gaspar de Portolá and Junipero Serra to San Diego and then onwards to Monterey. For this expedition, which some made via the coast and others by sea, Crespi was made one of the three diarists, and as such was one of the very first Europeans to describe parts of California. Beyond Monterey, Crespi went onward towards what is now the San Francisco area, and in 1774, he was chaplain of an expedition to the North Pacific.

works

Historia de la conquista de las sietes islas de Gran Canaria (contested ascription). The work has survived in several manuscripts that differ significantly from each other. The most important manuscript copies are kept in the Biblioteca Municipal de Santa Cruz de Tenerife, one dating from 1676 and one from between 1775 and 1787. The 1676 version has been the main source for the editions mentioned below. Both manuscript copies apparently go back to an original, now lost manuscript from 1632. The work itself might have seen a first redaction around 1590, with additions and corrections around 1599 and/or 1602.

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

OFM. Belgian friar. 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.

works

Contemplationes idiote in duytsche(Antwerp: Willem Vorsterman z.j., probably late 1535/Antwerp: Willem Vorsterman, z.j., c. 1536; Antwerp: Willem Vorstermanz.j., c. 1538/Antwerp: Marten Huyssens, 1607) [The first six boecxkens of the Dutch version follow the Latin text, entitled respectively: Van der godlicher liefde (24 chapters); Vander maghet Maria (6 chapters); Van warachtige verduldicheit (21 chapters); Van den stadighen strijde des vleesch ende der zielen (20 chapters); Van der verloren onnoselheyt (7 chapters); Vander doot (20 chapters). In the Latin original, the final book on death is followed by a short biography of Christ (Compendiaria vitae Christi per Evangelistas enarratio). In Jan van Alen’s translation, this is exchanged for a different text, namely Een dancbaerheyt van dye gheheele passie ons heeren Iesu Christi (which is largely almost literally derived from the Franciscan Fasciculus Myrrhe].

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

OM. 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

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)

OFM. Italian friar, born at Avella (in the province of Avellino). Entered the Franciscan Observant branch in the Neapolitan province of Terracdi 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).

works

Works of contemplation for use by Neapolitan confraternity members. 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.

Wrote a humanist chronicle of the Este family and a philosophical treatise De Immortalitate Animae, later revised and published as De Coelesti Vita. Juan de San Antonio ascribes to him also De Paradiso & animae felicitate & De Inferno & Animae cruciatu, which would be kept in the library of the Sant'Antonio friary in Padua and were supposedly issued in Venice in 1494.

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

OMObs. 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 in 1526. 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.

works

Opera Omnia. Most of Giovanni da Capestrano's works are only available in old editions and in a significant number of manuscripts. See for instance the manuscripts in the national library of Naples, such as 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, as well as 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. Studium Historico-Criticum, Studia Antoniana16 (Rome, 1961).
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, but is available in several photographic copies, for instance in the library of the Franciscan Institute, St. Bonaventure University. For a more or less complete overview of old collections and editions, see aside from Juan de San Antonio also 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.

This text was written in January 1445, when Giovanni was vicar of the regular Observants. Subsequently, this declaration was given a papal interpretation by Eugenius IV, to clarify Capistran’s remarks on the adherence to the precepts of the rule.)
For an edition, see: Declaratio Primae Regulae Sanctae Clarae, 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 end 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)

OM. 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, IV, 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)

OM. 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.
