Pablo Nassarre/Nasarre (1664-1724)

OFM. Spanish lay friar, musician, music theorist and composer. Born as a blind baby in Saragossa. Moved to Daroca, where he was taught by the composer Pablo Bruna, who was blind himself. Pablo joined the Franciscans at San Francisco el Real in Saragossa, where he worked as an organist. Recognizing his musical and compositorial prowess, his order superiors allowed him to start a school of harmony and counterpoint, where José de Torres and Joaquín Martínez de la Roca were among his students. He published several compositions and work on musical theory. He died in the Saragossa friary in 1724.

Pacificus de Cerano (Pacificus de Novara/Pacifico da Cerano/Pacifico Ramati, c. 1420-1482) Beatus

OMObs. Italian friar. Orphaned young in his life, he entered the Observant branch of the order in 1445 (at Novara) after advanced studies in Roman and Canon law. He became priest and developed into a renowned preacher. Following in Bernardine of Siena’s footsteps, he spent much energy in further renovation of the Franciscan order in Southern Italy. Also active as crusade preacher (against the Turcs). In May 1481, the Cismontan Observant general chapter made him commissionarius for Sardinia, where he died before 14 June, 1482. Based on his experience as priest, confessor and preacher, Pacifico wrote in 1473 his Summula de pacifica/Summa pacifica. This work, which was printed two times in the later fifteenth century and at least five more times before the Council of Trente (and came out in a revised form thereafter), amounts to a straightforward confessor manual, showing incumbent confessors how to teach the articles of faith, the sacraments, the Ten Commandments,and to give the faithful basic behavioral guidelines that cohere with their social status (married or not, professional lawyers, doctors, masters and students, merchants, bankers, artisans priests, bishops, etc.). the work also provides interrogatory schemes that confessors can use for his stratified flock of penitents. At a more general level, the Summula subsequently provides an introduction to the tasks and obligations of the confessor, it lists the penitential canons, as well as papal and episcopal excommunications. For authorization and reference purposes, the work provides canonist and theological sources in the margin.

Pacificus Pruvinus/Pacificus Scaliger Pruvinus (Pacifique de Provins/René de l'Escale/Pacifique Scaliger, 1588-1648)

OFMCap. French Capuchin missionary and traveller. Born as René de l’Escale in Provins in 1588. He entered the order in Rouen in 1605 (Capuchin Parisian province) and traveled through the Levant in 1620-1624, also visiting the Holy Land. For a short time back in France in 1625. Yet then again sent out as a missionary to the Middle East and Persia. He was able to establish a French Capuchin mission in Isfahan in 1627 with the support of Cardinal de Richelieu and Père Joseph, and with the permission of Shah Abbas I of Persia. Sent back to France by the Persians to act as their legate to Louis XIII. Later active in Southern America. He died in Guyana in 1648 (1642?). He left behind travel accounts of his journeys to the East and the New World. The name of Pacifique Scaliger de Provence is also connected with the introduction to Western Europe of the so-called Covenant of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of the World, which goes back to a twelfth century tradition, and which Pacifique encountered during his traves in 1628/9 and brought back in manuscript format to Paris. It probably became the basis for the 1630 Parisian edition of Gabriel Sionita.

Pantaleon García (1757-1827)

OFM. Argentine Franciscan friar from Buenos Aires. Joined the Franciscans in his home town. After his studies for the priesthood and his theological formation, he became lector and preacher. In 1780, he was appointed doctor of philosophy at the university of Cordoba. There he soon occupied numerous chairs (philosophy, theology, canon law) and also took up charges as chancellor and university rector in the period that saw the move towards independence of Argentinia. Pantaleon also acted as rector of the international College of Notre Dame of Montserrat (Cordoba). Aside from these university tasks, Pantaleon took up several functions within his order (provincial, synodal examinator of the Cordoba diocese etc.).  During the independence struggle, Pantaleon proved to be a devout patriot and advocate of independence, going as far as to give nationalist sermons in the Cathedral of Cordoba in May 1814 and April 1818, and to preside over patriottic funerals of policians and military figures involved with the independence movement.

OFM. French Observant Franciscan friar from the Lille (Rijssel) monastery, who studied at Louvain and after finishing up in 1597 became lector. Nothing else is known about him, other that he translated a work from Latin into French (see below). In the introductory commendation of this work, adressed at the abbot of Loos (near Lille), Pierre Charpentier, Pasquier describes himself as a young preacher and student (vostre humble orateur & estudiant). According to the Martyrologium prof. S. Andreae, Pasquier d'Orange would have died on May 29, 1597, yet the commendation to Pierre Charpentier dates fro June 23 of that same year. According Willot and De Troeyer, Pasquier would have been alive in 1598 and 1599.

Paschalis Victoriensis (Pascal de Vitoria, eerste helft 14e eeuw)

OM. Spanish friar from the Vittoria custody (Basque country). In 1333, he was sent out to Asia (Turkmenistan), together with his colleague Gonsalvus Trantorna. After a pilgrimage to Assisi (Porziuncola), they took the boat in Venice. They stayed for a year in Saraï, in the Khanate of Kiptchac (north of the Caspian Sea). There, Pascal de Vitoria learned Mongol languages and the writing skills needed for his missions. The friars moved onwards to Al-Malik, South of Lake Baikal. In that region existed a Franciscan diocese, under the protection of Khan Kazan. After the murder of Kazan, his place was taken by the fanatical Muslim Ali-Sultan (1337), who in fundamentalist fashion ended with violence all non-Islamic forms of religious expression. Pascal de Vitoria was arrested, together with a number of other friars and bishop Richard of Burgundy. They were tortured and subsequently executed (ca. 24 June 1339 [Cf. the reaction of Pope Clement VI at hearing their death according to the Franciscan chronicler Johannes von Winterthur, MGH Scriptores Rerum Germanicarum Nova Series 3 (Hanover, 1924), 208]. Pascal recorded his missionary activities in his Brevis relatio sui itineris, rerumque a se gestarum per modum epistolae ad Fratres Conventus, et Custodice Victoriensis. This report in letter format, sent from Al-Malik (10 August 1338), and directed to his fellow friars in Vitoria, has been included in several old order chronicles and in addition received 20th-century editions.

Paulinus Erdt (Paulin Erdt, 1737-1800)

OFMRef. German friar from Wertach (Allgäu). Learned publicist. He took the habit as an adult (23) and taught theology at Freiburg University (Freiburg in Breisgau). He died as guardian/vicar of the Freiburg Franciscan friary on 16 December 1800. In his writings, he defended Christian religion as commensurate with natural reason against radical enlightenment positions (also in the context of the reforms of Joseph II), and he translated a number of works into German to support this cause. In addition, he was involved with the production of theological handbooks and practical works of religious instruction.

Paulinus Venetus (Paulinus Minorita, ca. 1270/1274 - 1344)

OM. Italian friar. Active in the Padua convent (December 1293). Priest around 1300, and lector in 1301 (probably (also considering his age) after he had passed through a non-degree lectorate course at a Franciscan studium generale). In October 1304 mentioned as custos of the Venice custody. Between 1305 and 1307, he was active as inquisitor of the March of Treviso. Between 1315 and 1316, the Venetian republic used Paulinus as ambassador at the neapolitan court of king Robert of Anjou. In 1321, Paulinus can be found at Aix-en-Provence. By then, he is already papal penitentiary. In this function, he examines (in 1321) on request of pope John XXII the Liber Secretorum Fidelium Crucis of Marino Sanudo. The pope also uses Paulinus as papal ambassador at Venice. In 1324, pope John XXII appoints Paulinus to the neapolitan episcopate Pozzuoli [Cf. BF V (Rome, 1898), n. 541], a position that Paulinus is able to take up in 1326. During his years as bishop, Paulinus frequents the court of Robert of Anjou and becomes a favorite counsellor of the king. Paulinus dies at Pozzuoli before the first of July, 1344. During the years of his episcopate, Paulinus became rather active as historian, chronographer and geographer. He produced three large, densely illustrated and indexed chronicles, which can be seen as three different versions with changing organisational matrices. These chronicles are the Chronologia magna (mss. Venice, Bibl. Marc. Cod. Lat. 399; Paris Bibliothèque Nationale Lat. 4939), the Notabilium Historiarum Epitoma (ms. Florence, Laurentiana Plut. 21 sin 4), and the Satyrica gestarum rerum, regum atque regnorum et summorum pontificum historia (o.a. ms. Cessena, Bibl. S. Francisci; ms. Vat. Lat. 1960; Prague, National Museum XVI A 8 (4 a 10, 65)), Some of the chronicles also contain additional treatises, such as a Provinciale Ordinis Fratrum Minorum (a list of Franciscan provinces, custodies and convents; ms. Vat. Lat. 1960; ms. Bamberg, Hist. 4/2 E III 11), a Mappa Mundi, a Provinciale Romane Curie (a list of dioceses and ecclesiastical provinces) a Tractatus de Diis Gentium et Fabulis Poetarum, De Providentia et Fortuna, a Tractatus de Regimine Rectoris, and a Tractatus de Ludo Scacorum [cf. See Heullant-Donat]. To him was also ascribed a Liber de Terra Sancta, yet that is the third book of Marino Sanudo’s Liber secretorum fidelium crucis.

A. Rossi (Perugia, 1860) [accessible via Google Books]. De Regimine Rectoris is inspired by De Regimine Principum of Giles of Rome, and produced in the Venetian vernacular on request of Marino Badoer, Duke of Crete, deals with the responsibilities of various communities, namely familis, colleges, cities, states etc. The first part of the work deals with the necessary qualities of the rector or governor (esp. the virtues of prudence, evenhandedness, magnaminity, moral integrety etc.), and provides rules/norms for his personal behaviour. The second part deals with the obligations towards one’s family (wife, children, domestic servants etc.). The third part deals with the government of communities as such (dealing with proper counsel, the proper application of law, the importance of justice and the primordial importance to keep the interests of the people at heart).

Paulus Assisiensis (Paolo d'Assisi, fl. first half 15th cent.)

OMConv & OMObs. Italian friar. Born in Assisi at the end of the Fourteenth century. He took his vows in Assisi as a conventual friar. Continued his theological studies after his ordination. He apparently reached the Magisterium and taught at Padua. After a dramatic meeting with Bernardino da Siena, Paolo left the Conventuals in 1426 and became an Observant friar. For a number of years he traveled with Bernardino and also embarked on preaching journeys of his own, visiting Perugia, Florence, Padua and Venice. He left a Quadragesimale, and allegedly also a Life of Bernardino. The contents of his preaching are to some extent known thanks to the the vernacular reportationes of his 1437 Lenten cycle by a lay listener in Florence, now found in MS Florence, Bibioteca Nazionale Centrale, Magliabechiano XXI 175. These reportationes indicate that Paolo used a wealth of exegetical techniques, privileging stories (and embellishments of these stories) taken from the Old Testament. Two Latin sermons by Paolo of Assisi are included in the MS Rome, BAV Borgiana Latina 394 (Sermo de voto & Sermo de peccato in Spiritum Sanctum).

Paulus de Caesena (Paolo da Cesena/Girolamo Angelini, 1556-1638)

OFMCap. Italian friar from Cesena. Followed at first in his father's footsteps in studying law, yet after an early graduation in Roman and Canon law he opted to join the Capuchins in Macerara in 1580. Following his religious schooling in Civitanova, Ancona and Bergamo he taught philosophy and theology in different Capuchin friaries in the Marches, and also became guardian and custos (Macerata, Ascoli, Urbino), as well as provincial. During these assignments he also fulfilled many homiletic tasks in the Venetian, Paduan, Tuscan regions and elsewhere. Following a huge Lenten preaching campaign in 1600, in the context of the Jubilee, and a number of missionary assignments in the early seventeenth century, he became a leading administrator in the Capuchin order (visitator, general commissarius), leading to his election as general vicar (1613). He died in the Treia friary on 13 December 1638 [see the entry on him written by Stefania Nani mentioned below for additional info].

Paulus de Sancto Spirito (David King, d. 1665)

OFM. Irish friar. Son of a secretary of Lord Upper Ossory. After a thorough education, David King entered the order and obtained the name of Paul of the Holy Spirit. Received a further education in Latin, Greek and Hebrew under the Franciscan friar Bonaventure Baron. Due to unlucky circumstances, he was emprisoned, and was only freed after the intervention of Luke Wadding. In 1641, he is found at Brindisi, southern Italy, where he held a post as professor of moral theology. After the revolt of the Catholic confederation of Kilkenny, David/Paulus returned to Ireland, where, in 1644, he was the guardian of the Kilkenny convent. He combined this position with a lectorship of moral theology. Soon, the apostolic nuncius Rinuccini made him the guidesman of all the Irish Franciscans. Due to conflicts between leaders of the Catholic confederation and the nuncius (a conflict in which David/Paulus supported Rinuccini, who did not want to compromise with the English), David/Paulus had to flee to Louvain, where he composed polemical pamphlets against Rinuccini’s Irish detractors (such as the Epistola Nobilis Hiberni). Sometime later, David/Paulus became the guardian of the S. Isidoro convent (Rome) and thereafter secretary of the order’s procurator general. He died at Rome in 1665. On top of his polemical pamphlets, he wrote a number of other works, of which at least one (Idea Cosmographiae) found its way to the printing press.

Paulus de Tarento (Paolo di Taranto, fl. later 13th cent.)

OM. Italian friar. Franciscan Alchemist, active as lector in Assisi in the later thirteenth century. He is the author of a number of works, including the Theorica et practica alchemiae. Since Newman, many also ascribe to him the Summa Perfectionis of Pseudo-Geber, but Michela Pereira questions Newman's line of argument.

works

Theorica et practica alchemiae: MS Manchester, University Library, Rylands, 65 (Expl. f. 123r: 'Explicit practica libri compositi a fratre Paulo de Tarento ordinis fratrum minorum qui fuit lector fratrum minorum in Asisio in arte alkemica.'). This same manuscript also contains the alchemical Vade Mecum of 'Frater Elias'.

Geberis philosophi perspicacissimi, Summa Perfectionis Magisterii (Venice: Apud Petrum Schoeffer, s.a.; Brescia: Ioannes Baptista Pederz, 1542). (Attributed; work of 'Pseudo-Geber'). Following the work of Michela Pereira (2008), some doubts have been raised about Paolo di Taranto's authorship of the text, yet he might still have been involved with its Latin rendering.

`Paulus'Gualdensis (Paolo di Gualdo Tadino/Anonymus Umber, ca. 1180-ca. 1335)

OM. Italian friar from Umbria. Author of a Chronicon Umbriae, a large 'regional' world history, built around a series of key figures. As the name 'Paolo' is not fully ascertained, André Vauchez has proposed to call the author Anonymus umber (Vauchez, `Fratri Minori, eremitismo e santità laica', 274-5). The chronicles is focused on Umbria and Gualdo, and contains a surprizingly small number of dates. In older literature, the chronicle is often confused with an older Legendarium by the same author and that may have contained comparable materials. No autographs or early mss survive of either the Legendarium or the Chronicon. We only seem to have late copies of the chronicle (MS Foligno, Bibl. del Seminario Fonds L. Jacobilli A, VI, 6; ms Gubbio, Bibl. della cancelleria vescovile. Credenza I; ms Rome, Bibl. Vat. Fonds Ottoboni Lat. 2666; ms Foligno, Bibl. Communale F 55.3.190; ms Rome, Bibl. Vat. Chigi G VI, 157). A version of it was used by Elimosina of Gualdo for the production of his own chronicle.

Paulus Gualterus Gugliensis (Paul Walther of Guglingen /Paulus Walterus, fl. late 15th cent.)

OM. German Franciscan and pilgrim. Probably born in Güglingen, near Heilbronn. At the age of 18, while being an impoverished student, he became an Augustinian canon. A further conversion experience at the age of 36, enticed him to join the Franciscan friars of the regular Observance. He worked for 23 years as a friar in and around Guglingen and Heidelberg. Then he was given permission to go on pilgrimage. In the Summer of 1481, he went first to Italy, to spend the winter in Venice. From there he traveled onward to the Holy land, reaching Jaffa in July 1482. He visited the holy places as a pilgrim and then spent a year in the Franciscan Jerusalem friary. He later traveled back in the companny of Bernard von Breydenbach, to deliver a message to the papal curia in Rome. He later returned to the German lands. He served as a preacher and as a guardian in the Basel friary (Switzerland), between 1487-1493, and afterwards became confessor of the Poor Clars of Söflingen (Ulm). He died there at the age of 74, in 1496. Paul Walther is known for the account of his travels to Palestine and Egypt, and a connected, much more substantial treatise on the geography of the Holy Land, which also justifies the Franciscan presence in the Holy Land and calling for a new crusade. Many elements of this treatise were used in the Peregrinatio in Terram Sanctam of Bernhard von Breydenbach. For its connections with texts by Francesco Suriano and Francesco Quaresmio, see the study of Marianne Petra Ritsema van Eck mentioned below.

Hence, Sansoni's provincialate obligations were rescinded already in 1605, and he remained inquisitor in Treviso until 1614, when he ws transferred to the inquisitorial position in Padua, which he kept until 1627, when he died of a heart attack.

Paulus Scriptor/Scriptoris (Wilensis/Suebus, d. 1505)

OM. German Observant friar. Born in Weil (Schwaben). Entered the Franciscan Observants in the province of Strasbourg. Was sent to Paris to study theology. Studied under the Scotist Stephan Brulefer. Back in Germany (before 1488), he became lector at the studium at Tübingen (studium established there in 1447, together with the foundation of the U. of Tübingen). Glassberger provides a description of a public disputation held in Neuerenberg at the provincial chapter (1488). In this disputation, which was chaired by Stephan Brulefer, Paulus Scriptoris was assigned the task to defend several theses chosen for the occasion [AF, II, 504ff.]. Although the Franciscan studium at Tübingen apparently was not fully incorporated in the university, there is evidence that Paulus drew a wide and mixed academic and non-academic audience with his lectures on Scotus and on astronomical, geographical and mathematical topics [for instance on Ptolemy and the astrolabe. He also designed a globe for Johann von Dalberg. See on this the descriptions in Konrad Pellikan, Chronikon, ed. B. Riggenbach (Basel, 1877), 12.] Aside from these teaching activities, Paulus also engaged in the study of Greek in the school of Reuchlin and stimulated his own students (such as Konrad Pellikan, Staupitz and Eck) to engage in the study of Hebrew. Before and after 1498, Paulus was guardian of the Tübingen convent. Also elected definitor for his province. Due to his apparently critical stance in sermons and teachings and some seemingly unorthodox statements, he lost his teaching- and administrative positions in shortly after 1500, when the provincial chapter sent him to Basel and forbade him to continue his teachings (though he was allowed to write). Pellican would later perceive a resemblance between the views of Scriptoris and those of Luther. Fearing further disciplinary action, Scriptoris travelled in 1502 to Vienna and Rome, where he tried to find support. By 1505, Paulus Scriptoris was rehabilitated and safely returned to Heilbron. He was about to be sent to a lectureship in Toulouse the general vicar Martialus Brulier, but was first asked by the bishop of Basel (Christoph von Utenheim) to assist in the reform of the Cluniacencian monastry St. Alban in Basel. On his way there, Paulus Scriptoris died in Kaiserberg [see AF, VI, 283, n. 4, 286, n. 1]. In his theological writings, Paulus Scriptoris followed the `via antiqua' (esp. Bonaventure) and the teachings of Scotus. This seems to have been the general trend in the Observant province of Cologne in the later fifteenth century [see: V. Heynck. `Zur Rechtfertigungslehre des Kontroverstheologen Kaspar Schatzgeyer, O.F.M.', Franziskanische Studien 28 (1941), 13, 135f.]

Pelbartus Ladislaus de Temesvar (d. 1504)

OMObs. Hungarian friar. Born around 1430 in Temesvár. Studied in Krakow/Cracow from 1458 onwards (bacc. 1463 and probably doctor of theology in 1471). Entered the Observants probably before finishing his theological studies. From 1483 onwards active in the convent of St. John in Buda as lector, preacher and author (‘solemnis predicator at in theologia non mediocriter imbutus'). Died there on 19 January 1504. Especially famous for his sermon collections, as well as for his commentaries on OT and NT books (esp. on the religious songs contained in the Bible), and his immaculist theological positions. His final, synthetic, theological work - the Aureum Sacrae Theologiae Rosarium - was finished (book IV) by his pupil Oswald de Lasko.

Around this time he went to Spain as procurator for his province and he partipated as custodian for his province in the general chapter of Toledo (1645). In 1650 Pedro moved to Rome as procurator for the promotion of the beatification of the missionary Francisco Solano. In Rome, he was appointed general procurator for his order, and he was commissioned to order the archives and libraries of the order. This led to the publication of two volumes entitled Indiculum Bullarii Seraphici (Rome, 1655). The other eight envisaged volumes did not appear, for Pedro moved back to Spain. Back there, he abandoned all projects to devote himself completely to the defense of the immaculate conception. His archival and theological investigations on this topic did not find a printer in Spain. But in 1661 he moved to the Southern Low Countries where Belgian Franciscans in Louvain and Namur provided him with facilities to publish his works. For this purpose, Pedro established a Typographia Immaculatae Conceptionis, which was closed already in 1667 by Royal order, thanks to machinations of the Dominicans. But in these five years (1661-1667), Pedro was able to edit several works, which form an important source for the history of the immaculate conception.

The book came on the index of the Catholic Church because it elevated Francis to a godlike position. Yet this did not prevent its dissemination in both Europe and the Americas. Cf.

Petrus Amy (Pierre Amy/Ami/Lamy, d. 1525)

OFM. French friar. Born in or near Orléans. Studied Greek there. His father forced him to join the Franciscans. In the Observant friary of Fontenay de Comte, he continued his studies of Greek and began to maintain epistolary contacts with humanists, such as Guillaume Budé (between 1520-1524). At Fontenay de Comte, he also befriended his fellow Franciscan François Rabelais. Together they visited the houses of a local circle of humanists. End 1523, the guardian of their convent clamped down on Rabalais’s and Amy’s literary interests, and their Greek books were confiscated. In reponse, both men left the monastery [check for Rabelais]. Amy took refuge in the Benedictine house of St. Mesmin near Orléans and subsequently traveled to Basel in the company of the Polish baron Johannes Laski (who would later try to introduce Calvinism in the Polish kingdom). This trajectory is mentioned by Rabelais in Pantagruel L, III, chapter 10. Erasmus knew Amy in Bale and commented in 1531 on his fragile health, virtuous nature and death (letter of 13 March 1531 to Jacques Toussain [check]). This letter informs us that he died shortly after his arrival in Basel. He was buried ‘pro laico’ in the cemetary of the Franciscan friary in Basel. This would mean that he had probably left the order. It has also been suggested that, by the end of his life, he would have been an adherent of Lutheranism.

Petrus Aureoli (Peter Auriole/Peter Aureol/Oriol/Petrus Aureolica. 1275-1322, Avignon), doctor facundus

OM. French friar. Theologian. Probably born in the neighbourhood of Gourdon or near Cahors a few years before 1280. In his youth friend of the later pope John XXII. Entered the order in the Aquitaine province shortly before 1300. Studied at Paris during the first decade of the fourteenth century. Uncertain whether he heared the final lectures of Scotus there. Took part in the 1311 and 1312 usus pauper discussions, and from this period dates his oldest known work (Tractatus de paupertate et usu paupere). Taught as lector at the Franciscan studia of Bologna (1312), where he wrote or finished his only non-theological work, namely the Tractatus de principiis naturae, and subsequently, from late 1314 onwards, in Toulouse. It was there that he probably wrote two texts that defend the immaculate conception of the Virgin Mary, namely the Tractatus de conceptione Beatae Mariae Virginis and the Repercussorium). While in Toulouse, he also lectured on the Sentences, and it is quite possible that a first version of Aureol's large commentary on the first book of the Sentences was written there. He was in any case deemed suffiently proficient as a theologian to be chosen by Michael of Cesena at the general chapter of 1316 to absolve his Sentences readings pro gradu at Paris. Aureol read the Sentences between 1316 and 1318 and obtained the magisterium in 1318 (Cf. papal request of Pope John XXII addressed to the chancellor of the university of Paris concerning this bestowal on July 14, 1318). Regent master at Paris between November 1318 and Summer 1320 (or 1321?). Elected provincial minister of Aquitania (end 1320) and Archbishop of Aix on 27 February 1321. He died on 10 January/22 January 1322 in Avignon, soon after accepting this office. [Vertegenwoordiger van het zogenaamde conceptualisme en empiricisme. Criticicaster van Thomas Wylton, Herveus Natalis en Scotus. Zijn filosofisch-theologische oeuvre gezien als overgang naar het werk van Ockham. Van hem zijn vele filosofische en theologische werken bekend. Zijn epistemologie, ontvouwd in zijn Sentences commentaar staat nu in de belangstelling. Zijn belangrijkste exegetische werk is het Compendium sensus litteralis totius sacrae Scripturae, dat in vele handschriften, oude drukken en edities is overgeleverd. Dit compendium bevat ook een sterk historiserende uitleg van de apocalyps. Zich deels baserend op het apocalypscommentaar van Alexander Bremensis geeft Aureoli een zeer orthodoxe kerkgeschiedenis met een helder antagonisme tussen de Kerk en de machten van het kwaad die haar belagen. Aureoli is verder interessant als een van de eerste grote verdedigers van de onbevlekte ontvangenis en voor his verdediging van de onfeilbaarheid van de Kerk op het vlak van het geloof. Deze onfeilbare Kerk heeft in de paus, de vicarius Christi, zijn representant en bewaker van het ware geloof. Komt dicht in de buurt van latere pauselijke onfeilbaarheidstheses].

Petrus Arrivabene

OM. Italian friar from Mantua. Secretary of the vicar general of the Cismontan Observants Pietro da Napoli in the 1470s. Guardian/vicar of the Mantua San Francesco friary and thereafter for a number of years active at the Mount Sion friary of Jerusalem. Back in Italy, he preached in Rome (1483) and in Perugia (Santa Maria degli Angeli, 1485). Guardian at Mantua in the early 1490s, as well as confessor of Isabella d'Este of Mantua. Subsequently additional preaching assignments and substantial editorial activities (breviaries, missals and other works for the order). Involved with the organisation of the Cismontan general chapter for the Observants sub vicariis in 1504, and again guardian at Mantua between 1506-1507, in which period he also commissioned several building projects (for instance involving the infirmary and the library). The remaining years of his life (until his death on 7 June 1513) he fulfilled several other administrative and funding seeking charges and continued issuing various works, including a translation of Bonaventure's Legenda Major, which finallt appeared nine years after his death.

works

Sermones (1485): MS Padua, Biblioteca Universitaria cod. 1563 [Contains two series of sermons: 25 sermons by an anonymus Franciscan friar, to which Pietro Arrivabene added 28 sermons de sanctis of his own. A lengthy description of this manuscript is provided by Cenci, 1968, 144ff. & 1969, 115ff.]; MS Padua, Biblioteca Universitaria cod. 2056 ff. 496r-505v [A sermon on the blood of Christ, probably inserted by Pietro Arrivabene himself in an existing sermon collection that was in his possession (=the remainder of the manuscript). He probably held the sermon on the blood of Christ in Mantua, in 1480.

Meditationes Passionis Christi (Milan (?): Leonardo Pachel, c. 1488) [The work begins as follows on f. 1a: ‘Incipit prohemium in meditationibus passionis domini nostri Iesu Christi, ubi miles devotus hortatur ad ipsius domini nostri Iesu amorem et ipsius beneficia continue recolenda precipueque ad meditandam ipsius sacratissimam passionem.’ In all, it contains 22 meditations, based on previously held passion sermons. Contrary to the early editions of the famous Meditationes Passionis Christi, Pietro Arrivabene did not schematise his passion devotion meditations according to the seven canonical hours. Instead, he provides a more or linear narrative with subsequent meditations of the Passion.]

Breviarum secundum ritum romanum, castigatum per fr. Petrum Arrivabenum ord. s. Francisci (Venice: Georgius Arrivabene, 1497); Breviarum franciscanum secundum ritum romanum, diligentissime emendatum per ven. Religiosum fr. Petrum Arrivabenum ord. Min. De Observantia (Venice: Lucas Antonius de Giunta & Joannes Emerici de Spira, 1498, 1499 & 1500). Cf. Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke 32, 33, 35, 86 (nos. 5118, 5120, 5121, 5169).

Edition of a Summa, that is a selection of the works of John of Wales: Summa de regimine vite humane seu Margarita doctorum, ed. Pietro Arrivabene da Canneto (Venice: Giorgio Arrivabene, 1496). After the frontispiece and an commendatory letter by minister general Guillelmus Astensis, the work starts of with a lengthy Tabula per ordinem alphabeti omnium in Summa Ioannis Valensis contentorum, ff. 3r-57v. This is followed by (selections of ) John of Wales’ Communiloquio (new numbering, ff. 1a-166d), his Compendiloquium de Vitis Illustrium Philosophorum (f. 167a-232b), his Breviloquium de Philosophia sive Sapientia (ff. 233a-239c), his Breviloquium de Virtutibus Antiquorum Principum et Philosophorum (ff. 240a-259d), and his Ordinarium Vite Religiose sive Alphabetum (ff. 260a-305b).

Opera devotissima continente le piissime meditazioni della passione di Cristo, cum aliquanti capituli devotissimi novamente composti (Mantua: Francescho di Bruschi, 1511). It is an Italian translation of his own Meditationes, with at the end an additional Pasion in versi vulgari pervenuta a le man mie, consisting of 52 terzines. On f. 5r-v, Pietro makes clear: ‘…ho pensato in questa mia ultima età reducere in sermon vulgare le devotissime meditatione, che sono vintidue, de l’acerbissima morte et passion de Christo, da me predicate quaranta anni lo venere sancto in varie et diverse cità et terre de Italia non senza grande effusione et spargimento de lachrime et mie et de li popili audienti.’ The translation was dedicated to the Poor Clare Chiara da Montefeltro (=Isabella di Rimini, the widow of Roberto Malatesta, lord of Rimini. After his death, sabella entered the order of Poor Clares in Urbino and later transferred to the Poor Clares of Ferrara).

Legenda de Sancto Francesco composta per el serafico Sancto Bonaventura et reducta in volgare per el venerabile patre fr. Pietro da Canedo (Venice: Gregorio de Gregori, 1522). This translation received a new edition in the 20th century: Legenda de Sancto Francesco composta per el serafico Sancto Bonaventura, reducta in volgare per el venerabile patre frate Pietro da Canedo, ed. Michele Faloci Pulignani (Assisi, 1927). Faloci Pulignani remarked that Pietro’s translation might be the most faithful of the various surviving fifteenth- and sixteenth-century translations of the Legenda Major.

Petrus Berchorius (Pierre Bersuire, fl. ca. 1340)

OM. French Franciscan friar who quickly left the order to become Benedictine monk. As a Benedictine, he became the compiler of several works to help preachers, such as the Repertorium Morale, the Reductorium Morale, and translations of the works of Titus Livius. The most famous of his works is the Reductorium Morale, a so-called preaching encyclopedia, containing moralized information about the properties of nature. For much of its content it goes back to De Proprietatibus Rerum of Bartholomaeus Anglicus and subsequent moralizations of this work for preaching purposes. (See also under Marcus de Orvieto) The Reductorium Morale contains 16 chapters: (1) De Deo; (2) De Corpore et Membris Humanis; (3) De Hominis Conditionibus; (4) De Infirmitatibus; (5) De Celo et Terra; (6) De Materia et Forma, Igne et Aere et Eorum Impressionibus; (7) De Avibus; (8) De Aquis et Fluminibus; (9) De Piscibus; (10) De Animalibus, Vermibus et Serpentibus; (11) De Terra et Eius Partibus Necnon de Gemmis et Lapidibus Preciosibus; (12) De Herbis, Plantis et Arboribus; (13) De Nature Accidentibus; (14) De Mirabilibus Nature; (15) De Fabulis Poetarum; (16) Super Totam Bibliam.

Manuscripts

Reductorium Morale This work, also known as the Liber Bibliae Moralis, was printed at Ulm and at Strasburg in 1474, and later also in Basel (1515), and Lyon (1536). Check Hain, Repertorium Bibliographicum I, 362; Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke (Berlin, 1928) III, nos. 3862-3867.

Petrus Bessonius (Pierre Besson de Dreux, d. 1598), beatus

OFMCap. French friar from the Parisian province. Guardian of the Rouen friary (also involved with the care for plague victims), preacher (also against Calvinism). He was more or less killed by accident by a lifeguard of Henri of Navarre on 26 June 1598. This lifeguard mistook him for Pierre Deschamps, who had preached against the king. Pierre would have left behind several smaller works of religious instruction, but we have not yet been able to trace those.

Petrus Borbelli (d. 1333)

OM. Italian Franciscan lector at Aversa. Was elected bishop of Carinola and confirmed in this office by Pope John XXII on 13 january 1326. Yet Pietro’s order superiors were unwilling to accept this election (did this mean that he could not take up the position?). Four years later, when the Valva-Sulmona episcopate became vacant, the order apparently did not hinder Pietro’s election by that diocesan chapter. Pietro was confirmed in his new see on 4 May 1330. The next year, Pietro published new diocesan statutes of the Valva Sulmona diocese.

Petrus Brosius (Pierre de La Brosse, fl. 15th cent.)

OM. French friar about whom nothing more is known than that he wrote a small treatise Des règles de la perfection, dedicated to all those who wanted to engage in a veritable devotion ‘à nostre très doulx Sauveur Jhesu Crist crucifié.’ The author provides ‘35 règles de dévocion pour qui veut monter en la très haute montagne de perfection et de sainte contemplation’. Work seems especially geared to female religious who go to mass daily and should cultivate an evocative and tender devotional attitude towards the suffering Christ.

Petrus Caperolo (Pietro Caprioli, d. 1480)

OMObs. Milanese friar and renowned preacher. Tried to establish an independent congregation within the Observant movement (a.o. in Bergamo, Brescia and other towns in Northern Italy). For this he was condemned by the leadership of the order in 1467. Reconciliation in 1469. In 1471 the commune of Brescia tried it once more. Only in 1477 did pope Sixtus IV allow Capriolus to establish a congregation named after Bernardinus of Siena. Moreover: Capriolus was asked to reform the convent of Città di Castello. After Capriolus' death in Brescia the congregation quickly disappeared. Works? See for more information the studies of Sevesi and Kirshner.

Petrus Capullius/Petrus Capuleus (Pietro Capullio/Capulio/del Capulla, d. 1625)

OFMConv. Italian friar. Commentator on the works of Bonaventure. Born in Cortona around 1560. Proved himself to be a talented student. He was baccalaureus in the Rimini studium and later regent master of the Magna Domus Venetiarum in Bologna. He joined the Conventuals and resided for a while in the friary on the Alverna mountain. He rose quickly in the order ranks, reaching the function of general procurator. Yet he also continued to teach and to study, and in 1593 he became the sixth regent master of the Collegium S. Bonaventurae in Rome, which had been erected by the Franciscan pope Sixtus V in 1587 to kickstart the study of the works of Bonaventure. Together with other Conventuals, Pietro Capelli became a driving force behind the edition and the study of Bonaventure, and he was one of the teachers of new generations of Conventual intellectuals, among which were also Mastrio and Sbaraglia. Pietro Capulio remained at the Collegium S. Bonaventurae until 1605, when pope Paul V made him bishop of Conversano, near Bari. There he devoted himself to pastoral tasks and also continued his bonaventurean studies. He died at Conversano on 28 June, 1624 (or 24 June, 1625 according to Eubel, Hierarchia, 177). He is first and foremost known for his commentaries on the first and second book of the Sentences of Bonaventure.

Petrus Crabbe (1470-1553)

OM & OFM. Belgian Friar from Malines (Mechelen) Studied theology in Louvain in and after 1489/90 (according to the old style matriculated on 28 February 1489, in the pedagogium De Valk), and joined the Observants before 1504. Lector and librarian in the Franciscan friary of Malines/Mechelen. Later also guardian, there and elsewhere, and confessor of the Poor Clares of Mechelen/Malines. Became an important editor of church council documents. After a search through almost 500 libraries, on which he embarked in and after 1532 at the request of the Popes Leo X and Clement VII, partly in collaboration with the clergyman Jan Heytmer from Zonhoven, the leader of the papal committee put together for this purpose, Crabbe published his Concilia Omnia, tam generalia quam particularia, in fact the first real scholarly edition of these church documents. It was widely used before the new collection of Mansi came out. Petrus Crabbe died in Mechelen/Malines in 1553 or 1554 at the age of 83. Crabbe apparently also worked on a bibliography of published works of classical writers, and he corresponded on this topic with the humanist Viglius ab Aytta. This was either never published and the manuscript version apparently has not survived.

works

Concilia Omnia tam Generalia quam Particularia ab Apostolorum Temporibus in Hunc usque Diem a SS. Patribus Celebrata et Quorum Acta Literis Mandata ex Vetustissimis Diversorum Regionum Bibliothecis Haberi Potuere, 2 Vols (Cologne: Petrus Quentel, 1538); revised in 3 vols (Cologne: Joannes Quentel, 1551) [including a provisional account of the early history and decisions of the Council of Trent]; revised in 4 vols, ed. Surius (Cologne, 1567). The author included biographies of the popes the bulls and letters of whom he included. Crabbe's collection of Councils and council decisions was avidly used by Catholics and Protestants alike. Several old editions of this work now accessible via the digital collections of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek and via Google Books.

Epistola ad Fridericum Nauseam (12 August, 1536), included in: Epistolarum miscellanearum ad Fridericum Nauseam (...) libri X (Basel: Joannes Oporinus, 1550), f. Z2r [179].

Some scholars also ascribe to Petrus Crabbe the imprint/edition of a twelfth-century sermon on the immaculate conception of Mary, supposedly written by Peter Comestor. See: Pius ac eruditus sermo Petri Comestoris, olim prebyteri Trecensis, de immaculata Virginis Mariae Conceptione (Antwerp: Willem Vorsterman, 1536). The work was later included in Petrus de Alva y Astorga's Radii solis (...) pro immaculatae conceptionis mysterio (1666).

Petrus de Alcántara (Petrus de Alcantara/Pedro de Alcántara/Juan de Garavito y Vilela de Sanabria, 1499, Alcantára - 1562, Arenas) beatus (1622), sanctus (1669)

OFM & OFMDisc. Studied grammar in his home town, and thereafter the liberal arts, philosophy and canon law at Salamanca. In 1515, he entered the order in the Santo Evangelio custody, which officially was transferred to the Observants in 1517, and in 1519 received provincial status. Juan fulfilled his noviciate in the convent San Francisco de Los Majaretes, and changed his name in Pedro. Further religious studies at Los Majaretes and at Belvis de Monroy. Became guardian of Robledillo de Gata in 1519 and priester in 1524. From 1525 onwards he again several times fulfilled the function of guardian in various convents (a.o. Badajoz, La Lapa, Plasencia). Between 1532 and 1538 he lived the life of a hermit in La Papa. In 1535, 1544, and 1551, he was provincial definitor. In 1538 he was elected provincial minister of the province of St. Gabriel. As provincial minister (1538-1541) he reformed the provincial constitutions with the support of the chapter of Placensia. After getting acquainted with Francisco de Borja, a period of solitary contemplation (1542), travels to Portugal and additional administrative and educational charges (a.o. gardien and novice master at Palhães), he embarked on a program of reform, in close allignment Juan Pacual. Petrus established several new convents, such as the Pedroso de Acim convent, which became the center of the subsequent Alcantarine reform congregation (under Conventual control). In 1557 he became general commisioner of these reformed convents in Spain. His congregation received official papal approval in 1562 (Pius IV). Pedro died on 18 October 1562. He was beatified on 5 March 1622 and officially canonised on 28 April 1669. Pedro is foremost known as a great organizer, as a contemplative ascetic with a clear-cut ascetical program, and as spiritual counsellor of king Juan III of Portugal and Theresa of Avilla. Wrote several influential ascetical and meditative handbooks, which emphasise prayer.

works

Tratado de la oración y meditación (Madrid, 1916/1933/1956/1977) [also more than 200 older editions, as well as many partial modern translations. The work shows many resemblances with the contemporary treatise on meditation written by Louis of Granada, but uses a wide range of other sources (aside from Scripture, Augustine, and Bernard, especially John of Caulibus, Pseudo-Tauler, Alonso de Madrid, Francisco de Osuna, Antonio de Guevara, and the Instrucción para novicios of Martin de Santa María Benavides) . Pedro probably had finished the first version of the work by 1537. The first printed edition dates from 1548. The work tries to serve as a meditational guide for lay people. For additional details, cf. Mariano Acebal Luján, ‘Pierre d’Alcántara’, DSpir XII, 1491-1493]. A partial French translation is available in Ivan Gobry, Mystiques franciscains (Perpignan: Artège Editions, 2013).

Petrus de Alfaro (Pedro de Alfaro, fl. c. 1575)

OFMDisc. Spanish friar from the Santiago province. Missionary and provincial minister in the Philippines. Left for China on 20 May 1579 and entered Canton on 19 June of the same year, together with three additional priests and two Franciscan tertiaries. Due to opposition from Portuguese merchants at Macao, Pedro and his Franciscan party of missionaries was exiled on the accusation of espionage. Pedro returned to Manilla but went onwards to Macao the same year, where he established a friary and a church, which he dedicated to Notre Dame of the Angels. From Macao, he tried again to engage in missionary activities on the Chinese mainland. He was apparently rather succesful, but that attracted again opposition from the Portuguese, as a result of which, Pedro had to leave Macao in 1580. He went towards Goa, but his ship sank and Pedro perished.

Petrus de Baldeswell (fl. c. 1300)

OM. English friar. Studied at Oxford and became there regent master of theology ca. 1301 (30th lector of theology at the Franciscan studium, succeeding Philip of Bridlington). Baldeswell’s Sentences commentary has not survived, yet some positions from his commentary on Books I and II of the Sentences are sometimes cited in the Sentences Commentary of William of Ware (MS Florence Laurentiana Plut. 33 dext. 1 ff. 14v, 23v, 54v, 57r, 59r, 60r, 61r, 61v, 67r, 76r, 76v, 94v. On f. 94v is also found a short text ascribed to Peter of Baldeswell on the way in which the sacraments provide the soul with a precondition to receive grace. Marginal notes alongside the text of William’s Sentences commentary (f. 14v, & 59r) allude to another quaternus of Peter, in which he would have refuted (in a Thomist fashion) some positions of William of Ware). Peter of Baldeswell is also cited in a commentary on all books of the Sentences found in MS Cambridge, Gonville and Caius College MS 300 (attributed to William of Nottingham by E. Longpré). The citation shows that Peter, influenced by Richard of Mediavilla, rejected the formal distinction.

As a Capuchin, he first established a Capuchin friary at Picquepuce (Picpus) en 1574 with support of King Charles IX, became active as an anti-Calvinist preacher, and he also became guardian of the new Capuchin friary in Paris. Although the Observants were not pleased with his position as guardian of the Capuchin friary in Paris, the Observant preacher Maurice Hylaret would have preached alongside Pierre Deschamps in Paris and Orleans against Protestants.

He died in the convent of San José in Mexico. He left behind a Vocabulario de la lengua otomí (unedited?).

Petrus de Castravol (Pedro de Castrovol, d. after 1491)

OFM. Spanish friar from Mayorga (Léon). Master of theology. Prior to his magisterium he taught in the late 1470s the Ethics of Aristotle at Lérida on the basis of the recent translations of Leonardo Bruni. Some ten years later these comments on the Ethics were edited and pubished by the Franciscan friar Gaspar Gastant and the German priest Enrico Botel. Pedro de Castrovol was provincial of the Aragon province between 1489-1490.

Petrus de Calatayud/Petrus Trigosus (Pedro de Calatayud/Pedro Trigoso, d. 1593)

OFMCap. Spanish friar; former Jesuit. Born in Calatayud (Saragossa) in 1533. Studied in Salamanca and at the university of Alcalá. He joined the Jesuits at the age of 23 and, after completing his studies under Laínez, he taught and became active as preacher and confessor. In 1570, he was asked by Francisco de Borja to establish a Jesuit house in Amberes, where Pedro remained until 1577, when he returned to Spain. In 1580, he traveled to Italy, where he took refuge in the Loreto sanctuary and decided to become a Capuchin. As a Capuchin, he embarked on preaching tours in the Ascoli-Picena region, and in Ancona he founded an orphanage. He also immersed himself in the study of Bonaventure, and in 1584 his Capuchin order superiors appointed him as lector at the Capuchin studium generale of Bologna. He became so well-known as a Bonaventure specialist, that pope Sixtus V involved him with preparing the declaration of Bonaventure as doctor of the Church. In 1589, Pedro moved to Naples, where he continued to teach and to preach, and where he again helped create an orphanage (the Real Reclusorio for Spanish girls). In 1593, he participated in the Capuchin general chapter, held in Rome. He died in Naples on July 20, 1593. During his Capuchin teaching career, he worked towards the creation of a systematic summa of Bonaventurean theology, based on Bonaventure's Sentences commentary and conceived in four parts and eight volumes. Only the first of these was published. Among his more well-known pupils were Giusto Bonafede and Michele da Napoli (who continued his work on the summa, completing seven volumes, which were lost in the 19th century).

The Theology Faculty obliged him to retract certain theological statements, the nature of which is unclear [CHUP IV 478 no. 2314; 479 no. 2316]. He was excommunicated by his provincial in 1446, but later he received absolution by papal bull [BF n.s. II no. 1221]. Peter supported the part of Charles VII and apparently was chaplain and confessor of the Lord of Gaucourt. The latter commended Peter to Nicholas V as a most loyal subject of the French King.

He requested the University of Paris to bestow upon him the magisterium. The university granted this request in 1439 [CHUP IV 573 no. 2468; Paris BN Lat. 5657a f. 18v.]. His sermon collections have been erroneously ascribed to the Dominican Petrus de Palude.

Petrus de Corbario (Pietro Rainalducci di Corvaro/Antipope Nicholas V, 1258-1333)

OM. Italian friar from Corvaro (near Rieti in Lazio). He joined the order in 1310 after leaving his wife, and developed into a respected preacher. When the Franciscan order came into conflict with Pope John XXII over the usus pauper controversy, the excommunicated Holy Roman Emperor Louis of Bavaria, helped organize Pietro's election as counter pope in the St. Peter in Rome (12 may, 1328). He took this position with the name Nicholas V (not to be confused by the pope recognized by the Catholic Church under that name). Pietro/Nicholas for a while was very active in the opposition to John XXII, yet after his excommunication in April 1329, Pietro/Nicholas eventually sought reconciliation. After receiving assurances, Pietro/Nicholas wrote a Confessio et Abiuratio (…), which he first presented to the Archbishop of Pisa and later at Avignon to Pope John XXII (25 August 1330). He spent the last years of his life in a kind of luxurious imprisonment in the papal palace in Avignon, where he died in October 1333.

Petrus de Cornibus (Pierre de Cornibus, d. 1549)

OFM. French friar. Born in Beaune (Autun diocese). Obtained the licence of theology in February 1524 and the doctorate in June of the same year. Known preacher and anti-Protestant polemicist, as well as adversary of biblical humanism. In collaboration with the guardian of the Grand Couvent de Paris, he asked the theology faculty of Paris on 16 July 1530 to pronounce a verdict on a preacher he thought to be heretical in matters of the Eucharist. In 1531 he preached the funeral sermon for Alberto Pio and also preached at other important public occasions. He made an impression on the first Parisian Jesuits, several of whom became his friends. Late 1533, Pierre de Cornibus was among the theology doctors asked to inform the French king on matters of Lutheran heresy.

Petrus de Falco (fl. late 13th century)

OM? French friar? His Franciscan identity is not fully secured. Some (including Glorieux) posit him as a regent master in Paris between ca. 1279/1281 or 1280/82. But that seems erroneous, just as previous identifications of Peter with William of Falegar. See the remarks in the 2010 study of Courtenay. Peter of Falco’s own regency (if at all within the Franciscan order), probably should be positioned after the regency of Richard of Mediavilla (which took place between 1284-1287). Later he is found as provincial minister of Aquitaine and also as lector of the Roman curia [check Sylvain Piron!]. Whatever Petrus de Falco’s order allegiance during his Parisian years. He uses a Bonaventurian vocabulary yet also seems at times to echo elements from Henry of Ghent. Peter’s Sentences commentary did not survive in full. Several excerpts, among which those made by Petrus Reginaldetus (MS Vat. Lat. 9343), have survived, as well as several of his Quodlibeta and Quaestiones Disputatae.

Petrus de Gandavo (Petrus van Gent/Pedro de Gante/Petrus de Mura/Pieter van der Moere, ca. 1480 - 1572 Mexico)

OFM. Belgian friar. Born in or near Ghent (in Geraardsbergen), Flanders around 1480. Joined there the Franciscans before 1522, possibly after studies in Louvain. At least, a Petrus de Gandavo was inscribed at the university there in 1503, 1507, 1512 and 1513. Still, his Spanish letters from later date do not betray much exposure to the liberal arts and theology. In any case, before 1522 he had joined the Franciscans in the Provincia Flandriae in Ghent. When the Franciscans Joannes Glapion and Franciscus Quignones came to the Netherlands in 1522 armed with the papal bull Alias felicis (issued by Leo X on 25 April 1521), in order to find missionaries for the newly conquered territories in New Spain (Mexico), Peter and two other friars (the guardian Joannes de Tecto and Joannes de Aora) offered to go. They departed in that year for Spain with the fleet of Charles V (with whom he apparently had cordial relations, and with whom he migh have been related), where they arrived after a stopover in England on July 27 (Santander). In Spain Jan Glapion fell ill and died (Valladolid, 15 September 1522). As a result, the onward journey to New Mexico was delayed. Peter and his fellow friars set out for the New World from Seville on May 1st 1523 and arrived at Véra Cruz on August 30 of the same year. Peter of Ghent had a long missionary career in New Spain, and stood out with his attention to indigenous languages, his attention to indigenous education (for instance in his school in Texcoco (San José de los Naturales), where he taught children to read and write and to learn the basic tenets of Christian faith) and his innovative catechistic approaches. In the course of time, he also became a champion of Indian rights in the face of Spanish exploitation.

Petrus de Grossis (Pierre des Gros, fl. 15th cent.)

OM. French friar. Received his licence of theology on 15 December 1449 and incepted as doctor of theology on 20 April, 1450 [Paris BN Lat. 5657-A f. 21r; CHUP IV, 689]. In mat 1451, Petrus is ‘custos Campaniae’ and attended the provincial chapter of the French province held at Rouen. Also known to have preached at Abbeville in 1454 and at Amiens in 1468. Wrote Le Jardin des Nobles (written between 1461 and 1464) for the nobleman Yves du Fou (‘grand veneur de France’ and an influential courtier at the court of King Louis XI). Through Yves du Fou, Petrus received a royal grant by Louis IX of fifty ‘livres’ (pounds) for his necessities. In Le Jardin des Nobles, which by John Murphy is represented as a forerunner of Erasmus’ Enchiridon Militis Christiani, Petrus de Grossis developed the metaphor of a garden to discuss Christian morality, virtues, and eschatology. He stands, in fact, in a long tradition, going back to the twelfth century (Cf. the Hortus Deliciarum of Herrade de Landsberg). Starting of with a reference to the Song of Songs 4, 12 (You are an enclosed garden…), Petrus deals with the soul as a garden, the aspect of the cloistered garden of the soul and the growth and cultivation of the plants within this garden.

Petrus de Mogliano/Moliano (Pietro Corradini de Mogliano, 1435-1490) beatus

OMObs. Italian friar from Mogliano (Macerata). Studied law at the university of Peruga and wanted to embark on a legal career, when, in 1467, he was confronted by the Observant Franciscan friar Domenico de Leonessa (d. 1497). On the advice of the latter, Pietro took the habit at the Carceri convent (near Assisi). After he was ordained priest, Pietro embarked on a preaching career. At first he accompagnied Jacopo della Marchia, for whom he also transcribed manuscripts. For the next twenty years, Pietro was active as preacher in central Italy; combining preaching with strong social involvement, as can be seen in his pastoral work in Fermo and Amendola. He also was moral counsellor for the family of the prince of Camerino (Giulio Caesario de Varano), and especially for the prince’s daughter Camilla, who became a Poor Clare (under the name Battista Varani; see also this catalogue under her name), and dedicated her own Dolori Mentali di Gesù nella sua Passione (1488) to her franciscan counsellor (after Pietro’s death, she wrote in 1491 the eulogy Del felice transito del beato Pietro da Mogliano). In addition to Pietro’s pastoral work, he took administrative charges in the order: in 1472, the Observant general chapter of l’Aquila made him commissioner of the Island of Candia; three times (between 1477-1480, 1483-1486, and in 1489/90) he was provincial vicar/minister of the March of Ancona province. During his last appointment as provincial vicar, he died on 25 July 1490 in the Camerino convent. After some travels, his corporal remains were buried in the Camerino cathedral . On 10 August 1760 he was officially beatified. He apparently produced sermons & connected spiritual instructions. See the studies of Avarucci.

Not to be confused with Pietrobono Brosemini di Padova (Petrus Bonus Bruzeminus), who was guardian of the Trent convent as well as inquisitor in Padua in the closing years of the thirteenth century [cf. Collectanea Franciscana 30 (1960), 412-413; Clément Schmitt, DSpir XII, 1631]. Juan de San Antonio and Sbaralea ascribed to Pietro de Padua an Expositio super Problemata Aristotelis, as well as a collection of 150 Sermones de Tempore that has survived in many manuscripts all over Europe. The attribution of the sermons has been questioned by G. Abate and G. Luisetto, as the liturgical order of the sermon collection does not seem to cohere with the Franciscan-Roman liturgical calendar. Paul Marangon, on the other hand, is not totally convinced by this argument. Juan de San Antonio's and Sbaralea’s ascription of Expositio super Problemata Aristotelis suggests that Pietro was active as teacher in a Franciscan custodial school of philosophy.

works

Expositio super Problemata Aristotelis: MSS Sevilla, Check!; Ripoll, Benedictine Abbey, Check! [Cf. Estudios Franciscanos 76 (1975), 57]

Sermones de T: a.o.MS Padua Ant. 435 & 502 [According to G. Abate and G. Luisetto, these sermons are the work of another (non-Franciscan?) friar, yet Marangon remains elusive on this point. He argues that these sermons might be the work of a Florentine friar from the mid thirteenth century. See Marangon (includes an edition of some sermons pp. 237-240)]. There seem to survive many more manuscripts of this sermon collection. Cf. Schneyer mentioned below

Petrus de Sancto Benedicto (Pierre de Saint-Benoit, late thirteenth century)

OM. French Franciscan friar and preacher. Active at Paris c. 1250-1275. He apparently knew the city and its university rather well. Also sometimes mentions Orléans in his work. Not much is known about his life and career, yet to him are ascribed several important sermon collections De Tempore, De Sanctis, and De Communi Sanctorum. It might be that Peter is not the actual author of all these sermons, as they sometimes resemble very much sermons ascribed to Nicholas Byard, Guillaume de Mailly and others. Most of Peter’s sermons seem to have been written for his fellow homiletic practitioners, and are highly structured scholastic sermons with divisions, sub-divisions, recourse to biblical and theological authorities, and many concise exempla. Some of them have a strong spiritual import, such as the christological sermons edited under the name of Bonaventure, and an interesting sermon on prayer (cf. for instance Munich Clm 2672 f. 50v-51v; Cf. the analysis of David d’Avray, ‘Pierre de Saint-Benoît’, DSpir XII, 1667-1669).

Petrus de Sebivilla (Pierre de Sebiville/Sibiville, d. 1525?)

OFMConv. French friar. First a Cistercian monk, later a Conventual Franciscan and an evangelical ‘heretic‘. Born in Hesdin (Artois). Joined the Cistercians and studied theology. Traveled to Grenoble to preach at the request of Jan Chapuis (secretary of the Parliament of Paris) and the nobleman Jean Griffon (1514). By 1517, Pierre Sibiville joined the Conventual Franciscans, which allowed him to continue to preach in Grenoble, much to the liking of the town. Between 1518-1524, Sibiville was the official town preacher. Yet in the mean time, the Franciscan Observants had installed themselves in Grenoble and forced the Conventuals out of their friary in July 1522. The town then houses Sibiville in the town hall. During Lent 1523, Sibiville would have uttered ‘evangelical‘ doctrines in his sermons, and he made his acquaintance with the reformer Ennemond de Coct. While the latter fled to Wittenberg in April 1523, Sibiville stayed put and during Lent 1524 began to preach openly heterodox doctrines. As a result he was arrested by August 1524. In November of the same year, he renounced his heretical doctrines in the court of the Bishop of Grenoble, and he was forbidden to preach. Apparently he stayed in contact with Ennemond de Coct. Following remarks in the Journal d‘un bourgeois de Paris sous François Ier, Sibiville might have been burned alive in Grenoble in February 1525. Also possible that he fled or was forced into exile.

Petrus de Trabibus (Piero/Pietro delle Travi?, d. Late thirteenth century)

OM. Italian friar. Probably originating from central Italy (strongest case thus far made for the neighbourhood of Trabis Bonantis, in the custody of Cametino). Probably educated at studia in Southern France and in the studium Generale of Florence. Whatever may be the case, his writings show a strong influence of the theological positions of Olivi, who was lector at Santa Croce between 1287 and 1289. Peter de Trabibus might have been Olivi’s assistent lector or bachelor [Note: in a non degree studium generale like Santa Croce, the principal lector of the theology school read the Sentences to lectorate students, whereas his assistent (lector secundarius/bachelor/biblicus), provided these students with (cursory?) readings on the Bible]. Peter de Trabibus himself probably was principal lector at the St. Croce studium generale of Florence between 1294 and 1296, where he gave, in two subsequent years, a full course on the Sentences (according to a by then rather common order: book I and IV in the scholarly year of 1294-1295, and book I and III in the scholarly year of 1295-1296), as well as a series of quodlibetal questions (one series in Spring 1295, and one series in the Spring of the following year). Peter was not the first and only Franciscan lector without a licence of theology to hold public quodlibetal questions in a non-degree studium generale. Other examples are the quodlibets held in the 1290s by Olivi (who never became a master of theology) and Vital du Four (who received the magisterium by papal decree after 1305). Sylvain Piron (2000 & 2006) has suggested that Peter de Trabibus’s theology teachings at the studium generale of Florence had a strong public character, and goes as far as to suggest that one of the quodlibets actually might indicate the presence of the young poet Dante Alighieri. Some of Peter’s theological theses were condemned at the council of Vienne in 1312.

Petrus de Trano (Petrus Tranensis, Pietro da Trani, fl. later fifteenth century)

OMConv. Italian friar and theologian. Studied theology at Ferrara and received the magisterium there in 1466. Before he finished his degree studies, he produced a Tratado de la confession, at the request of duke Borso of Modena (who also was marquise of Ferrara). Apparently, Pietro and the duke were well-acquainted and shared a love for book-acquisition (see the study of Piana mentioned below). Later in life, Pietro was appointed bishop of Thilesio. During that period, he composed a treatise De Ingenuis Puerorum et Adolescentium Moribus, which eventually was published in 1496.

Bisogna prima sapere de la proprietà de la contricione, se volemo intendere che cossa sia confessione.’ The work apparently was directed to aristocratic lay people. One copy of the treatise once was kept in the library of Duke Ercole I. Cf. G. Bertoni, La biblioteca Estense e la cultura Ferrarese ai tempi del duca Ercole I (1471-1505) (Turin, 1903), 237, n. 58.

Tratado de Penitencia (attributed): MS Copenhagen Royal Library 1599 ff. 25r-40. [This treatise, written in the same hand and in the same style as the Tratado de la Confession, might well be another work of Pietro. Inc: ‘naturalmente la creatura rationale desidera de sapere et per instinto proprio de natura lo apetito humano è costretto a intendere, come el filosofo.… Expl: E perché niuna cosa è più necessaria quanto è saper la saluta nostra, imperò desidera naturalmente di sapere se colui el quale tutto el tempo de la sua vita o mazor parte è stato in peccato mortale, receve penitencia salutifera de perdonanza in lo ponto de la morte sua, cioè se costui se salva o danna.’]

Petrus Galatinus (Pietro Colonna Galatino/Monggius/Mongio/Colombo, c. 1460-1540)

OMObs. Italian friar. Probably born in or around Galatina in Puglia (Southern Italy). Entered the order at an early age in his home province of St. Nicholas of bari in the Observant convent of St. Catherina at Galatina. He was living in the Franciscan convent of Otranto when the Turcs sacked the town (1480). Studied in Rome (c. 1511-1515), reaching the Magisterium theologiae. He specialized in oriental languages and kabbalism and took on the defense of Reuchlin, just like his fellow Franciscan friar Benigno (who wrote his own Defensio of Reuchlin (Cologne, 1517)). Galatinus was not only heavily influenced by kabbalistic works, but also by the Apocalypsis Nova (Pseudo Amadeus da Silva). Galatinus was made provincial of the Bari province (1518), and was part of the clientele of the cardinals Lorenzo Pucci and Francisco de Quiñones (also as apostolic penitentiary). Spent the last years of his life in the Aracoeli convent in Rome, where he died as well. several of his apocalyptic and kabbalistic works are now in the BAV.

works

De optimo principe (1506): MSS Roma, Biblioteca Angelica, 1366, ff. 1r-98v; Granada, Abadía del Sacromonte, s.n. Dedicated to King Ferdinand of Aragon. A critical edition of this work is apparently in progress.

De Re publica christiana: MS Città del Vaticano, Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, Vat. lat. 5578, ff. 86r-106v. For an edition, see: B.F. Perrone, 'Il «de re publica christiana» nel pensiero filosofico e politico di Pietro Galatino', in: Studi di Storia Pugliese in onore di S. Chiarelli, ed. M. Paone, 2 Vols. (Galatina, 1973) II, 499-632 (609-632).

Comm. in Apocalypsim (1524): MSS Killiney, `Bibl. Francisc.' B. 25 (502 pp. Saec. xvii-xviii); BAV Lat. 5567; BAV Lat. 6046. This commentary stands in the line of Nicholas of Lyra’s prophetical historicism regarding the explanation of the main visions of the Book of Revelations, again actualised to fit recent events in European history. Hence the fifth seal ‘predicts’ the onslaught of the Turcs in the fifteenth and early sixteenth century.

De Sacra Scriptura Recta Interpretanda: Vatican City, BAV. Check! See the article of Kleinhans. The work is dedicated to King Henry VIII of England and was completed in 1526. It starts out, like many exegetical handbooks before, with a long explanation of the vision of Ezekiel, and then continues with making Christ the interpretative ‘key’ to the Scriptures. Christ opens the meaning of Scripture in the course of time: hence the real meaning of the Bible becomes clear in the course of salvation history (reminiscent of Rupert of Deutz, Joachim and others?). The mystery of Christ’s passion and his workings in salvation history require both a literal and a spiritual exegesis. The latter is divided by the author in anagogical, typological, tropological (three kinds) and allegorical (three kinds) senses. On top of that, the author discerns seven ‘intellectus spirituales’. In short, there seems to be a distinct Joachite inspiration here, at least as far as the methodology is concerned. It also seems that the author was well-acquainted with the exegetical set-up of Bonaventure (notably his Collationes in Hexaëmeron).

De Vera Theologia in quinque partes distinctum. Never published? The manuscripts for a while were kept in the Ara Coeli friary and subsequently ended up in several libraries and archives in Rome. This needs further checking. The following MSS might contain parts of it: MSS BAV Lat. 5568-9; BAV Lat. 5576; BAV Lat. 5575; BAV Lat. 5578; BAV Lat. 5579; BAV Lat. 5581; BAV Lat. 6046. For an initial description of the works contents, see the description in Juan de San Antonio and Kleinhans

Fratris Petri Galatini Artium ac Sacre Theologiæ Doctoris, Oratio Funebris atque Consolatoria. In illustrissimi Principis Antonii Cardonii Marchionis Padule & Epitaphium (for Antonio Cardona, Viscount of Padula, composed after 21 September 1513), published in the sixteenth century and now found in two convolute books present in Perugia and Bologna [Perugia, Biblioteca Comunale Augusta, ant I.I 160 & Bologna, Biblioteca Universitaria A.5.

Oratio de Circumcisione Domini (Rome, 1515). Held before Pope Leo X and the college of Cardinals.

Opus toti Christianae Reipublicae maxime utile de Arcanis Catholicae Veritatis, contra obstinatissimam Iudeorum nostrae tempestatis perfidiam, ex Talmud, aliisque Hebraicis Libris nuper Excerptum, et quadruplici linguarum genere eleganter congestum/Opus de Arcanis Catholicae Veritatis, hoc est, In omnia difficilia V.T., ex Talmud aliisque Hebraicis libris, quum ante natum Christum, tum post scriptis, contra obstinatam Judeorum perfidiam, absolutissimus Commentarius (Ortona: G. Soncino, 1518/Basel, 1550 & 1561/Paris, 1602/Frankfurt a.M., 1612 & 1672 etc.). These editions are not always fully the same and some, like the 1672 edition, also contain works by Reuchlin. The 1518 edition, the 1550 edition, the 1603 edition, 1612 edition and the 1672 edition ere accessible via Google Books. At first sight this seems just another anti-Jewish treatise, comparable with those written by earlier Franciscans. Yet it seems also a defense of the exegetical ideas of cabbalism and an ‘exegetical’ work in which the author suggests ways to convince the Jews that Jesus is the Messias. He seeks to establish a purified biblical texts, based on the veritas hebraica, and states that the Jews should accept the message of Jesus, as their own Old Testament is, in our Franciscan’s opinion, a testimony to his impending arival. To a considerable degree, the author introduces material from the Talmud, which in his eyes help to seek out the spiritual and mystical meaning of the Mosaic law, and therefore support the refutation of modern Jewish ‘litteralism’.

Petrus Gallego (Pedro Gallego/Pedro González Pérez, d. 1267)

OM. Spanish friar. Born in Santa Marta de Ortigueira (La Coruña). Entered the order in the Toledo friary, where he also became guardian. In 1236, he was provincial minister of the Castilian province, and according to Juan Gil de Zamora, he came to the attention of King Fernando III and his son Alfonso. This caused his appointment as royal confessor of prince Alfonso, whom he probably accompanied on the military campain to Murcia in 1243-1244. After further conquests, Pedro was made the first bishop of Cartagena by Innocent IV. Pedro kept this position from 1250 until his death in 1267 Spain, where he died. Pedro Gallego was an important Arabist and part of the scientifically interested circle in thirteenth-century Castile. Translated several works from Arabic to Latin and advocated the study of Arabic in the schools. Three of his works are still known, namely the Liber de Animalibus et de Naturali Diversitate, a Summa de Astronomia, and the Regitiua domus.

Petrus Jeghers (d. 1673)

OFM. Belgian (Flemish) friar. Missionary for the Missio Hollandica in Breda since 1649 (arriving one year after the Peace of Westphalia). In Breda he acted as rector of the Beguine Court, and coordinated the spiritual care of ca. 700 Catholics in town. This caused friction with the Dutch authorities. More or less forced to leave the Beguine court, he created a clandestine church in a house called 'De Graef'. In February 1666 a decree by the Dutch military authorities ordered all Catholic order members to leave town. Jeghers went to Antwerp. While this decree was annulled as a general measure, it remained in force for Jeghers. He remained in Antwerp and apparently died in 1673 in neighbouring Borsbeek as spiritual caregiver.

Petrus Johannis Olivi (Pierre de Jean Olieu/Pietro di Giovanni Olivi, ca. 1248-1298)

OM French (Provençal) Friar from the Languedoc area. Born in Sérignan (near Béziers) c. 1248. Entered the order at Béziers, at the age of 12. Around 1268, the provincial minister Jaucelin (friend of Hugh of Digne, and future bishop of Orange), sent him to Paris for his lectorate studies. he stayed for four or five years at the studium generale of the Grand Couvent de Paris (where he also witnessed Bonaventure’s Collationes). His prolonged stay at Paris was probably justified by his additional role as an arts teacher for younger Franciscan friars. He might have lectured in that context on Aristotle’s Physics. Olivi Probably returned to Southern France with his lectorate testimonials in or around 1274. In Southern France, he became active as a lector in a series of important provincial studia (for instance in Narbonne and Montpellier, where he was active as lector biblicus between 1279-1282, during which period, Olivi produced an impressive series of biblical commentaries as well as disputed questions). For some time, several of his writings (esp. those in which he formulated his concept of usus pauper and writings containing some of his more daring epistemological and eschatological opinions) drew the attention of his superiors, probably at the instigation of the university bachelor Arnaud Gaillard, who had an axe to grind with Olivi, and denounced him. This lead to Olivi's temporary suspension as a teacher, his transferral to the friary of Nîmes, and a confiscation of his books/writings (c. 1282-85). See for details D. Burr, The Persecution of Peter John Olivi; Piron, ‘In Epistola ad Fratrem R..’ (1998) and the latter’s forthcoming article on the censures and condemnations of Petrus Iohannis Olivi). Under the minister general Matthew of Aquasparta, he was able to resume his teaching tasks at the studium generale of the Santa Croce in Florence (held Sentences lectures there between 1287-1289). Subsequently, he was appointed at the studium generale of Montpellier, with the support of minister general Raymond Geoffroy (Gaufredi). Following an exoneration at the general chapter of Paris (1292), Olivi returned to Narbonne, where he made the final redaction of his works. From that period date the final version of his Lectura super Apocalypsim, his famous letter to the children of Charles of Anjou, and his letter to Conrad of Offida. He died at Narbonne on 14 March, 1298. During his life he was revered for his ascetical and pious lifestyle. After his burial before the altar of the Franciscan convent church of Narbonne, his tomb became a pilgrim site, and his death was commemorated yearly, until the final condemnation of his Lectura super Apocalypsim by John XXII in 1326. At the order of the papacy and the Franciscan order leadership Olivi's tomb was destroyed and his body removed. This condemnation was a culmination of a general clamp-down by the order and the papacy on French and Italian spiritual factions within, and beguine factions alligned with the Franciscan order. For these spiritual and beguine groups, Olivi’s views on usus pauper, as well as his eschatological opinions had become a source of inspiration. Some of Olivi’s writings had already been condemned and destroyed a few years after his death under the minister generals John of Murrovalle (1296-1304) and Gonsalvus of Spain (1304-1313), and in the wake of condemnations at the general chapter of Marseille (1319), seven years before the final papal condemnation in 1326. Olivi’s spiritual, exegetical, and disciplinary works, as well as his memory continued to be cherished by (threatened) spiritual factions (cf. also Angelo Clareno and Ubertino of Casale), and received renewed attention by Observant spokesmen (a.o. Bernardino da Siena). His more academic philosophical and theological ideas proved to be formative in the transition of Franciscan scholastic thought between the 1270s and 1300 (see for instance the study of Davenport mentioned below).

Thereafter, he received a chair as Prof. of archaeologie at the University of Pest, a post combined with that of head librarian of the city’s public library. Due to his archaeological and philological interests, he was given a chair of archaeology at Pest, as well as the position of librarian of the City library. In 1800, due to health problems, he was compelled to leave his positions, retreating into the convent life. Before and during these `retirement years’, he published a considerable number of works: works of poetry, numismatic and archaeological works, and text editions. He died at Pest on may 24, 1825.

Petrus Montanus (Petrus van den Berg/Van der Bergen van Perwijs/De Monte/Montanus Buretius a Perweto, d. 1579)

OFM. Belgian friar. Born in Perwez (Perwijs) in a well-to-do family. Studied arts and philosophy at Louvain from at least 1527 onwards (inscribed on 21 February 1527 and member of the pedagogium De Valk as a well-to-do student). Became master of arts and also obtained the licence of theology. Since 1535 or even earlier, he taught philosophy and was regent of the pedagogium De Valk between 1539 and October 1, 1543. Between August 1542 and February 1543, he was also Rector of Louvain university (and in this quality experienced the siege of Louvain in September 1542 by the troops of Maarten van Rossum. In this period, he (and later his brother Gilles/Aegidius, canon in Louvain, who later became bishop in Deventer) decided to join the Franciscans, and he entered the friary in the Fall of 1543. After his noviciate, he became lector in the Franciscan Studium Theologicum, likewise in Louvain,a position he held between 1545 and ca. 1555. This was followed by several guardian positions in Louvain, Mechelen, Brussels, and Antwerp. In 1567 he also became involved with missionary activities among fellow friars in order to solve the so-called Baianist controversy (surrounding the theological positions of the theologian Michel Baius (Michel de Bay), which had implications for positions on natural, original sin, justification etc.). In the course of his religious career, during which he also preached, especially between 1554 and 1556, he had various confrontations with the Calvinists, and he was forced to leave Antwerp, when he refused to sign a document that suppported the appointment of Archduke Matthias of Austria as governor of the rebellious Dutch provinces. Peter died in Louvain from the plague on April 20, 1579.

Petrus Reginaldetus (Pierre Reginaldi, fl. first half 15th cent.)

OM & OMObs. French friar from the Tours region. Renowned ascetic author. Baccalareus Sententiarum in Paris (1423) [CHUP IV, 419]. Received the licence of theology on 13March 1425 (1426?) and his doctorate on 27 January 1426 (1427?) [MS Paris BN Lat. 5657-A f. 16v; CHUP IV, 447]. After his inception, Petrus became custos of Poitiers and thereafter guardian of Angers. Opposed against the laxity around him, Petrus transferred to the observant convent of Redon. He attended the Council of Basel in 1434, where he defended the observants against accusations by the Franciscan conventuals that the Observance had broken the order’s unity [cf. the work of Schmitt mentioned below]. He is foremost known for his Speculum finalis retributionis tam bonorum operum quam malorum, egregii sacre theologie doctoris fratris Petri Reginaldeti de ordine fratrum minorum. In quo speculo diffuse elucidatur contemplatio penarum et gaudiorum eternalium, which for several decades was almost neglected, until it was published in 1492 by the Dominican friar Guilelmus Totani. The work received no less than eleven printings in the subsequent fifteen years. In addition his Sentences commentary, a work on the Mass and writings in defense of the Observance also survive.

Petrus Regius (Peter Regis/de Koning/Petrus Coninckz, 1509 - 1573)

OFM. Belgian Franciscan theologian and preacher. Born in Nijvel in 1509, his education was sponsored by Mary of Hungary, possibly thanks to the influence of his oncle, the Friar Minor Franciscus Regis (d. 1544). In the early 1530s, and in any case before 1533, he joined the Observant Franciscans in the Provincia Flandriae. Was lector at St. Omer (St. Omaars), Aat & Nijvel/Nivelles and then for eleven years guardian, again in the Franciscan house at Nijvel. Was elected provincial for the Provincia Flandriae in 1549, a position he kept for a full three years (1552). Subsequently preacher in Brussels, as well as confessor of the Queen Widows Leonora of France (Eleanor of Castile, sister of Charles V of Habsburg and widow of Francis I), and Mary of Austria (Queen consort of Louis II of Hungary and Bohemia, and governor of the Netherlands for her brother, Charles V). In 1555, Petrus followed Leonora and Mary when they and Charles V retired to Spain. He was apparently present at the death bed of both women in 1558. He returned to The Netherlands, and he was again provincial of the Provincia Flandriae (1561-1564), also acting against Sablonist tendencies (a version of Baianism, and at variance with 'orthodox' Catholic views of original sin and justification). Guardian of Nijvel before June 20, 1568, but he retired soon thereafter, later that year or the following year. He died in the same city on January 20, 1573. Known for his sermons and several anti-Protestant treatises, such as the Discovrs op die maniere van een dispvtatie tusschen een Catholijcke ende een Calviniste (Antwerpen 1568).

Petrus Simon (Pedro Simón, 1574-1627)

OFM. Spanish friar from the Cartagena province (born in San Lorenzo de la Parrilla, Cuenca). Historian of the Nuevo Reino de Granada (Colombia and Venezuela). Not much is known about his early years. There used to be disagreement about his date of birth (1565, 1574, 1572 or 1581), yet 1574 seems to be the correct date. Based on this, it would seem that he entered the order around 1589/90, completed his sacerdotal studies in the course of the 1590s, and taught liberal arts around 160/02. In 1604 he arrived in New Granada, teaching liberal arts/philosophy/theology to friars and lay people in the San Francisco de Santafé friary of Bogotá, and in 1607 he took part in an expedition to the Pijaos Indians. He was elected provincial definitor on the provincial chapter of September 1607 (until 1610). Around this time, he would have started his Noticias Historiales, in between further teaching assignments in arts and theology, and his participation in the expedition against the Pijaos Indians. In 1611, he is guardian of the recently created Recolección de San Diego de Bohotà friary. The following year, he becomes the first general vice-commissioner for the provinces of New Granada (Quito & Santa Cruz de Caracas) and visitator of the Caracas province. Between 1617-1620, he is guardian of the Convento Máximo de la Purificación de Santafé. During and after this assignment, he continued teaching as first lector of theology, for in 1623 he received the title of lector jubilado (the Convento Máximo de la Purificación de Santafé was the most important Francican friary in the province, with a novice training center, and different levels of education). In 1623, he not only received the grade of lector jubilado, but by that time he also had been made Calificador del Santo Oficio, and in June of the same year, he was elected provincial minister. After a regular stint of three years (1623-1626), he was elected guardian of the San Diego de Ubaté friary (Cundinamarca, Colombia) in September 1626. He died there in 1627, or in any case before May 1628. For a long time, his large Noticias historiales de las conquistas de Tierra Firme were not widely known. The first (out of three) part was printed in Cuenca in 1627 (and can now be accessed via http://archive.org), but that was apparently a small imprint. Some sections of the third part were published in Madrid in 1819 (in the journal Continuación al Almacén de Frutos Literarios). Two chapters of the second part were printed in 1858 in the Gaceta del Estado) A first complete edition of the massive and rather dependable work appeared in the late nineteenth century.

Petrus Slupick (Petrus Slupick/Petrus van Slupwijck, ca. 1505-1574)

OFM. Dutch Friar Minor from Sluipwijk near Gouda, preacher in the Delft Franciscan friary for most of his clerical career. Known for his preaching rallies in the County of Holland and for his activities as confessor of the Poor Clares of Delft between 1557 and 1573 (the year the Catholic religious were exiled from the town). Slupick then moved to Haarlem, to work again as confessor for the Poor Clares and as vicar of friary, but he died soon thereafter, on November 30, 1574. Known for his work De Christelike practijck van bidden (The Christian practice of Prayer), probably written for the Poor Clares of Delft and dedicated to Countess Margareta van der Marck and to Anna van Berghen, Dowager Countess of Arenberg ands Abbenbroeck, who apparently had functioned as his protectors and promotors during his career. The work is probably connected with his preaching and confession activities and centers on the mystical body of Christ.

[1561 or 1562]). The work consists of a prologue and five parts, followed by a poem in 18 verses (Spieghel ende vermaninge van die doot) and a Latin adhortation (Catholicis sacerdotibus ac ceteris latine doctis), calling upon literate people to accept the importance of the vernacular for prayers and devotional texts, and implicitly therefore arguing for the value of his vernacular text of religious instruction.

Petrus Poisson (Pierre Poisson, d. 1744)

OFM. French friar from Saint-Lô. Renowned preacher, who also became a preacher at the royal court and fulfilled charges as general definitor, and provincial, receiving the title 'premier père de la grande province de France'. He apparently developed less agreeable authoritarian traits, which created enemies and he seems to have died in exile from his order province in 1744 at Tanly (Champagne).

Petrus Quesel (Quesvellus/Quesnell, d. 1399?)

OM. English friar, theologian and canonist. Active in the region of Norwich, and guardian of the Franciscan house there. He died about 1399. He enjoyed a high repute as theologian and doctor of the canon law. His only (?) surviving work is the confession manual/summa: Directorium Iuris (also known as the Repertorium Iuris Canonici/Compendium Iuris Canonici/Summa Directoria Iuris in Foro Conscientie et Iudicali), consisting of a prologue, four books or parts (1. De summa Trinitate et fide Catholica, et de septem Sacramentis; 2. De iisdem Sacramentis ministrandis et accipiendis; 3. De Criminibus quæ a Sacramentis impediunt et de pœnis iisdem injungendis; 4. De iis quæ ad jus spectant ordinate dirigendis), and an epilogue. The prologue reveals the scope of the work and the intentions of the author, and his amends for several categories of readers: `Istud autem opus in quartor libros volui dividere ut qui pauper est non possit se excusare quod non possit ad minus librum illum habere qui ad eius officium noscitur pertinere. Et ideo omitto scribere secundum ordinem Decretalium et secundum ordinem alphabeti ut totam unam materiam valeam pertrattare.' (...) `In primo libro trattatur De summa Trinitate et de Fide Catholica et de septem sacramentis.' (...) `In secundo de hiis qui habent ecclesiastica sacramenta ministrare et de hiis que ad eos et ad recipientes sacramenta et etiam que possunt ad contractus varios pertinere.' (...) `In tercio de criminibus propter que a sacramentis potest impediri et de penis pro criminibus imponendis.' (...) `In quarto de hiis que ad jus et ad judicium pertinent.' (On the basis of Vat Lat 2317 f. 1c. as found in Lioi, Studi Francescani, 59 (1962), 218.) After assuring his readers that he always has followed the teachings of the majority of the doctors, he ends his epilogue: `Ego enim rogatus a pluribus personis opus compilari multa habuerim contraria propter infirmitates et alia ac me distraxerint ardua negotia et diversa. Tamen illius in quem speravi meritis, beate Virginis Marie ac beati Francisci cursum operis consummavi a quo expecto mihi premium reddi. Cui laus est et gloria per omnia secula seculorum. Amen. (Vat Lat 2317 f. 447c, Lioi, p. 219). It is a methodical work, listing for each problem the applicable canonist materials (Decretum, Decretals etc.), followed by a concluding thesis, in which the author makes a case for the best solution. The work follows closely Raymond of Peñaforte and Johan von Freiburg. Due to its practical character, the Summa of Quesel has been widely used, as can be seen in the number of its surviving mss. Almost all these mss have an alphabetical table of content or an index (a tabula generalis) in which the title or rubrics of the individual books are given. Sometimes, there is, alongside of this general table of content also an analytical table, a tabula specialis in alfabetical order (for instance Firenze Laur. Plut. 1 sin 8 f, 245c&254d)

Petrus Regaledo (Pedro Regaledo/Pedro de Valladolid/Pedro de la Costanilla, 1390-1456) Sanctus

OM. Spanish friar of Jewish descent. Born in Valladolid. Baptised and confirmed in the San Salvador parish. Got acquainted with Pedro de Villacreces (d. 1422), who functioned as his spiritual master. In 1404, Pedro de Villacreces took Pedro Regaledo and Lopez de Salinas y Salazar as young oblats with him to the La Aguilera hermitage. In the La Aguilera hermitage, Pedro Regaledo took the habit and made his profession in 1407. He stayed in the hermitage until his ordination as priest in 1415. In 1422, he assisted in the Peñafiel provincial chapter of the conventuals, where Pedro de Villacreces died. Between 1422 and 1442, Pedro Regaledo was guardian of La Aguilera. In 1426, he travelled to Fresneda (Burgos), trying to convince Lopez de Salinas not to leave the Villacrecian reform, and in 1427 Pedro took part in the so-called Concordia of Medina del Campo, where it was decided that the Villacrecians would stay within the conventual fold. Throughout the remainder of his life, Pedro kept active as administrator and as convent superior, putting in practice the reform ideals of Pedro de Villacreces, Lopez de Salinas and Pedro de Santoyo. This gave him a reputation of outstanding sanctity, which eventually lead to his beatification and his sanctification in the early modern period [Cf. especially Mariano Acebal Luján, ‘Pierre Regaledo’, DSpir XII, 1657-1658]. To him are ascribed several works. Several of those, namely the Constituciones, ritos y leyes municipales para las casas del Abrojo y de La Aguilera, the Exposición de la Regla franciscana, the Ejercicios contemplativos y ocupaciones activas, the Compendio de la vida del Pedro Villacreces, and the Opúsculo sobre el Arbol de la vida, probably were written by Pedro de Villacreces and Lopez de Salinas. More secure is Pedro Regaledo’s authorship of several Cartas and the short, fifteen-line prologue to the Memoriale religionis of Pedro de Villacreces. On this, see Archivo Ibero Americano 17 (1957), 663-713.

Petrus Stephanus Puig (Pedro Esteve Puig, 1582-1658)

OFM. Spanish Franciscan friar from Denia (Alicante). Joined the order in 1600 in the Santa María de Jesús friary of Valencia. Followed studies in the Franciscan schools/colleges of Valencia, Alzira and Oliva, a nd went for a while into study retreat (biblical literature and patristics) in the Chelva friary. Was apointed apostolic preacher of the Valencia region by pope Paul V and in 1614 was made commissary for the Holy Places in the Franciscan Holy Land Custody. He became a renowned preacher, with a peculiar homiletic style. He worked as an preacher/missionary worker in the poor quarters of Valencia, and was involved with plague victim support (1633) and the construction of defence structures against piracy at Denia. Near Denia, he also spent time in spiritual retreat in the caves of Monte Montgó, where he also founded a hermitage/convent [see: http://www.denia.com/el-pare-pere/]. He allegedly refused a bishopric offered to him by Philip IV. He died on 3 November 1658 in the San Francisco friary of Valencia. His body was translated to Denia in 1839, where it apparently lies in an uncorrupted state in an open coffin. Attempts to obtain his beatification have been made repeatedly. He wrote a number of vernacular works in prose and verse. Unclear whether some of these were published

Petrus Thomae/Petrus Thomae (Pedro Tomás, ca. 1280-Oct. 1340) doctor strenuus/doctor invincibilis/doctor proficuus/doctor serenus

OM. Spanish friar and theologian. Pupil of Duns Scotus. Born c. 1280 in Galicia in Northwest Spain. After studies in Paris, he became lector of philosophy and theology at the Studium of Barcelona (c. 1316/17-1332). After 1332, he entered papal service in Avignon (papal penitentiary). In 1336, he was accused of sorcery and spent the rest of his life in prison in Noves, south of Avignon. He died in prison before 13 October 1340. He is nowadays generally regarded as one of the most important Scotist theologians of his generation. Many of his works still await their first modern edition. [In oudere literatuur wordt hij ook genoemd als de auteur van een aantal bijbelcommentaren, waaronder een Commentaria in Apocalypsim, maar deze werken worden ook aan Pontius Carbonel toegeschreven. Hetzelfde geldt voor de Chronologia ab Adamo usque ad Romanos Imperatores, de Catalogus summorum pontificum a Christo Domino usque ad Benedictum XII en de Tractatus de judicio et Antichristo ad Joannem archiepiscopum Toletanum regis Aragonum filium (al deze vier werken volgens Sbaralea onder de naam van Petrus Hispanus in ms. Barcelona, Bibl. Raymundi Delmasses). Het staat nu wel vast dat het apocalypscommentaar, de Chronologia, de Catalogus en de Tractatus door Pontius Carbonel zijn geschreven. De verwarring komt omdat de teksten bekend stonden als het werk van 'broeder Petrus' uit Aragon, hetgeen voor beide broeders opgeld deed. Aan Petrus Thomas werd ook wel het bekende Compendium theologicae veritatis toegeschreven, dat qua opzet sterk doet denken aan het Breviloquium van Bonaventura. Maar dit compendium is van de Dominicaan Hugo Ripelin van Straatsburg. De herziene uitgave van Sbaralea schrijft hierover dat het '...Compendium theologicae veritatis a Pelbarto de Temesvar Petro Aureoli adscriptum, tribuitur praeterquam S, Bonaventurae et Aegidio Romano, etiam Alberto Magno, S. Thomae Aquinati, Thomae de Sutton Ord. Praed., Petro de Tarantasia et ab ipso Sbaralea Petro Thomae Ord. Min., invenitur in nonnullis codicibus saeculi XIII, hinc Petro Aureoli scriptore est antiquuis, et videtur opus Hugonis Ripelin Argentinensis Ord. Praed.' (Sbaralea, Supplementum, II, 327).]

Philippus de Berbegal (Filippo de Berbegal, fl. first half 15th cent.)

OMObs. Spanish Observant friar from Zaragoza. Joined the order in the Aragon province. Confessor of King Alfonso V of Aragon. In 1426, pope Martin V gave him permission to establish an Observant convent in the Aragon province (bull Sacrae religionis, 1426). In 1430, Filippo wrote against the Constitutiones Martinianae (which had been promulgated at the general chapter of Assisi in 1430 and aimed at reuniting the order, torn apart by Observant and Conventual factions). After publishing his Apologia, Filippo left the Observants (who were inclined to accept the 1430 constitutions), and with a few fellow friars founded a new Observant congregation: the congregatio de la capucciola (named after the pointed shape of their hood. Filippo’s initiative came under heavy attack from the Observan provincial vicar of France, Jean de Brixen, and from the Observant vicar general John Capistran. In 1434, pope Eugenius IV disbanded the congregation, condemning Filippo and several of his fellow friars as promotors of false doctrines.

Philippus de Ghisulfis ((Filippo dei Ghisolfi, first half 14th cent.)

OM. Italian friar. To him is ascribed a Commentaria super Apocalypsim (Ms. Assisi, Communale 80 (S. Francesco) ff. 1-174, 15th-century manuscript). Yet Sbaralea also ascribes this commentary to Guilelmus de Melitona. Maybe Philippus was the scribe/copyist. Stegmüller also mentions this commentary, yet he does so under the name of Pseudo Haimo de Halberstadt and remarks that it is also ascribed to Philipus Ghissulfis.

Philippus de Majorca (fl. early 14th cent.)

TOR. Spanish tertiary. Younger son of King James I of Majorca and the brother of Queen Sancia of Naples (the pious wife of Robert the Wise). Philip’s elder brother had joined the Friars Minor, whereas Philip himself initially opted for the Dominicans. As Philip found the Dominican forma vitae unsatisfactory, he eventually chose to become a member of the Franciscan third order. He supported the Franciscan spirituals (esp. Angelo Clareno and his group). During his years as regent of the Majorca Kingdom (1324-1329, for his young nephew James II), Majorca became a safe haven for spirituals and beguines persecuted by the inquisition, pope John XXII and the Franciscan leadership.

Philippus de Meron (fl. second half 15th cent.)

OMObs. Swedish or Dutch friar? Doctor of theology and active in Sweden in the second half of the fifteenth century. After some apparitions, he became a champion for establishing an additional feast for Saint Joseph (in addition to the commemoration of the saints death on 19 March). Eventually received permission from the Swedish episcopate to organise such a feast, replete with a liturgical ofice, on 14 January. Philippus apparently wrote a Latin treatise on the subject, or rather an eulogy on St. Joseph, fragments of which can be found in several manuscripts. There also survives a Dutch treatise, the eleventh chapter of which seems to be a translation of Philippus’ treatise. The title of the Dutch treatise, which might have been produced by Philippus himself (after a return to The Netherlands?), is Die historie vanden heiligen patriarch Joseph, brudegom der maget maria ende opvoeder ons heren ihesu cristi. This Dutch treatise in turn had a significant influence on later Dutch lives of Saint Joseph (cf. esp. the studies of Albert Ampe).

Philippus de Monte Calerio (Filippo da Moncagliere/Moncalieri, d. c. 1344)

OM. Italian friar, born at Moncalieri, near Turin. Entered the order in the Genua province. Lector of the Franciscan studium at Padua in 1330, and appointed penitentiary in the St. Peter Basilica of Rome by pope Benedict XII on 1 March 1336. Probably kept that position until his death, around 1344. Probably buried in the Aracoeli convent. As lector at the Padua studium, Philip composed for his students the first part of the Postilla super Evangelia Domenicalia. In the preface to the work, he also anounced a second part Super Evangelia que Leguntur in XLa, which, if we can believe the manuscript information, was finished on the 24th Sunday after Pentecost (also in 1330?). Philip also promised to compose a volume of Sermones et Collationes Morales, yet these do not seem to have survived. His Postilla super Evangelia Domenicalia and his Postilla super Evangelia que Leguntur in XLa had considerable success, witness the large number of manuscripts from the 14th and 15th century (Italian, French, German, Spanish, and Middle-European manuscripts). Not surprizingly, Mariano da Firenze calls him a ‘vir devotus et magnus praedicator’ (cf. Compendium, AFH 3 (1910), 309). The work also was printed under the title Postilla Abbreviata. Parts of the collections were published separately as well. The sermons of Philippus were especially sought after by Observant homiletic practitioners, not in the least because the sermons provide complete commentaries on the Gospel readings for the sundays in question, and have a strong pastoral intent. For the ‘proto-humanist’ tendencies in his sermons, see the remarks of Smalley.

According to older bibliographes, he would also have written biblical commentaries on Genesis and other biblical books. This needs to be checked.

He apparently translated Bernard of Besse's Speculum Disciplinae, then still considered to be a work by Bonaventure, into Spanish (which was issued in Sevilla: Ferdinando Diaz, 1574).

He should not be identified with the anonymous author of the Vergel de Virginidad and other works (among which a Misterio de Los Angelos). See for some of these works the entries under Anonymous works. Likewise, the Castilian translation of Marcos de Lisbõa's Chronicas da ordem dos frades menores do seraphico padre san Francisco should probably be assigned to his contemporary namesake from Andalusia.

Philippus Faber (Filippo Fabri da Faenza, 1564-1630)

OFMConv. Italian friar. Born near Brisighella (Faenza) as the son of Francesca and Tomaso Fabri. Joined the order in 1582: fulfilling his noviciate in Cremona and making his solemn profession in Faenza. Education at Ferrara and Pavia, and at the Collegium S. Bonaventurae in Rome. Given his degree in 1593, he became lector of the Venice studium, regent of Cremona for three years and regent and the Padua studium for six years. Made public theology professor at Padua university in 1606. He was elected provincial minister of his province at the general chapter of Faenza in 1626 (successor of Montagna da Maranello). Following this provincialate administrative position, he returned to the theology chair of Padua, but his health declined quickly, and he died at the end of August 1630.

Philippus Gesualdi (Filippo Gesualdi da Castrovillari, 1550-1618)

OFMConv. Italian friar from Castrovillari (Cosenza province). Theologian, minister general, and bishop. Born on 23 February 1550 in a noble family related to the Counts of Conza. Received grammatical instruction as a young boy by the Conventuals of Castrovillari (esp. by friar Vittorio Cappelli) and became a novice there at the age of 16. After his profession, he was sent to various important study houses of the order (Rome, Padua, and Treviso), to complete his philosophical and theological education. Ordained priest in 1573 and bestowed with the title of magister artium et theologiae at the general chapter of Perugia (12 May, 1580). Embarked on a career as educator and pastoral theologian. Was secretary at the general chapter of 1581 (where he also received the title of master of theology), and became regent master at the study house of Padua (where Francesco de Salo was one of his students and where he also founded confraternities), and after a period as general commissioner and visitator of the Sicily province (appointed by Pope Sixtus V), in the early 1580s, he taught at Naples (1588, where he completed his Lectura Sacrae Theologiae super Primum Sententiarum) [yet it has also been suggested that he was regent of the Neapolitan San Lorenzo studium between 1583 and 1586, and later regent in the studia of Palermo (1586-1589) and Padua (1589-1591/2). This needs further checking]. Was appointed provincial minister of the Calabrian province (1591). Around the same time, he was asked by the cardinal protector of the order (Cardinal Cusano), to reform the Assisi convent). In between these various appointments, he returned to Padua, where, he composed his Ordinaria Lectura super Librum tertium iuxta Mentem Scoti, in which he defended the immaculate conception. Still at Padua, in 1592, he published his most well-known work, the Plutosofia, con la quale si spiega l’arte della memoria, as well as several devotional works. During his stay in Padua, he continued to be active in founding confraternities and writing rules and statutes for them. In the same year 1592, Pope Clement VIII appointed him assistent general to the minister general Francesco Bonfigli. The year thereafter (1593), and with strong papal support, he was elected minister general of the OFMConv, a position that he kept until 1602. As minister general, Filippo activily endorsed the Tridentine reforms, and brough the conventual branch back to a more strict observance of the original Franciscan ideals. He personally visited several order provinces and repeatedly published reform decrees. This led to resistance in various quarters, both against his policies and leadership style (After he resigned his leadership position, reforms initiated by him lost some of their impetus, yet the order did see a reform of the Conventual study system, with a new organisation of Conventual study houses in four categories (logic, philosophy, theology, and 'studio commune' for less gifted friars), and the assignment of specific permanent locations of such study houses in Todi, Bologna, Florence, Assisi. These reforms were re-inforced in the 1628 constitutions of Urban VIII). Clement VIII made him bishop of Cariati and Cerenzia (15 August, 1601). During the subsequent general chapter, he resigned from office, and took up the episcopal charge in his Calabrian episcopate. It was a rather poor diocese, which had suffered much from Turkish attacks, and Filippo was apparently not very keen to take up that charge. Nevertheless, and notwithstanding his declining health (which necessitated him to take several leaves of absence to recuperate at Castrovillari), Filippo did engage in moral and religious reforms and did much to enhance catechistic teachings and the training of the secular clergy. He also became involved in social-economic programs, to lighten the poverty and living conditions of the poor. He founded several confraternities and helped founding a hospital for the sick and for poor pilgrims. He died in office on 12 December 1618 in the odour of sanctity (he appears in several Franciscan Martyrologies) and was buried in the Cathedral of his diocese. His corps was transferred to the sacristy in the 18th century, during restauration activities. Thereafter, the whereabouts of his tomb are unknown. Filippo was a prolific author, not only in the fields of doctrinal and pastoral theology, but also on devotional issues and philosophical matters. However, much of his scholarly/literary legacy related to his long teaching career in order coleges and studia has been lost, due to the manuscripts disappearing in the context of the suppression of monasteries, convents and friaries in Castrovillari (where much had been stored) during the napoleonic times. What we do have are works related to his administrative/leadership activities in the order, and works published meant for a larger audience. For a complete listing see especially the 1972 study of F. Russo.

Philippus Grabovac (Filip Grabovac/Filip Grahovac, 1697-1749)

OFM. Croatian friar from a village near Podosoke (Vrlika). He completed his noviciate in Brist (1719), and after his ordination, he worked as a lector and then for more than 20 years as a military chaplain in the Venetian armies. In 1747, while residing in Verona he issued works (printed in Venice) that led to a significant backlash and caused his arrest. Due to the dire conditions in prison and his already compromised physical health, he fell ill. He was transferred to a monastery and then to the Island of Santo Spirito, to die in 1749. The Venetian government tried to suppress his work, by confiscating and burning existing copies, yet at least six of his 1747 publication survived in part or complete.

works

Cvit razgovora naroda, i jezika ilirickoga, alliti rvackoga (Venice, 1747). A peculiar work on Illyrian/Croatian people and language. It also incorporated earlier serbian-croatian poems and pieces by the same author. This work drew criticism and caused the author's imprisonment, also due to the authors negative comments on Croatian soldiers serving the Venetian republic who became italianized in the process and no longer were true Illirians. The work, which the Venetian government tried to suppress, survived in six not always complete copies, and was re-issued in 1951: Cvit razgovora naroda, i jezika ilirickoga, alliti rvackoga, ed.

Philippus Hersfeldiae Minorita (c. 1480/1500 - 29 July, 1554)

OFM. German friar. Active in Hersfeld (before the destruction of that convent in 1525), Grünberg (c. 1528), Trier, Limburg (where he was active as vicar in neighbouring churches), and Kreuznach (where he died, on 29 July, 1554). Produced a scholarly compilation with works of Cusanus and other materials, now present in New York, Rare Book Library of the Hispanic Society of America, Hiersemann Catalogue 327/108. A part of the manuscript was probably produced in the Franciscan convent of Hersfeld (Custody of Hessen in the Cologne conventual province). Another part originates from Trier, where Philip apparently wrote the Sententia Sententiarum (which stands in the Hortus/Flores Sententiarum tradition) and the Cusanus excerpts. The miscellaneous compilation of Philip not only reflects his own scholarly and homiletic interests, but probably also sheds slight on current religious discussions between protestants and catholics (cf. Marburger ‘Religionsgespräch’).

Philippus Maria de Lugo (Filippo Maria da Lugo/Filippo Maria da San Giovanni Evangelista/ Filippo Bortolotti/Domenico Maria Bartolotti, 1739-)

OFM. Italian Observant friar. Member of The Bologna province, Born on 23 December 1739 (baptismal name Domenico Maria), he entered the order around the age of 20, taking the habit on 11 June 1759 in the Santa Maria delle Grazie friary outside Rimini, and changing his name into Filippo Maria da San Giovanni Evangelista. His religious and intellectual prowess as a friar in his formative years is related in the Concorso poem made by his fellow friar and friend Bernardino Affò. They both studied in Bologna and Ferrara. Subsequently, Filippo was appointed lector of philosophy in Rimini (whereas Affò was sent to Parma). Following this, Filippo was active as a preacher and between 1779 and 1781 he also was Professor of Sacred and Profane History at the University of Cesena. In later years he gave lectures of philosophy and canon law in Carpi and Ferrara, theology in Venice, and acted as director of the Padua seminary. In between, he also was several times guardian of the Ferrara S. Spirito friary, and became a renowned preacher, visiting many different towns. By 1801, as lector bis jubilatus, he went to Rome and became lector of Sacred Scripture at the Aracoeli as well as consultant/qualificator of the inquisition. He was back in Ferrara when the religious orders were suppressed, and continued working as a secular priest under his secular name Domenico Maria, being active in Ferrara and in Carpi, where he was personal theologian of the bishop and fulfilled a stint as rector of the seminary, keeping in the mean time active as a preacher. During a Lenten preaching cycle in 1811 in Coreggio he fell ill, to die at Carpi on 2 April of that year at the age of 73. He should not be confused with Filippo Bortoli OFMConv, who was a member of the Mirandola friary, and was a singer and a vioncellist in the chapel of the Duke of Este in Modena until the demise of the Duchy due to the conquest by Napoleon.

Philippus Vadius (Filips vander Vaert, ca. 1520-1571)

OFM. Belgian friar. Born in Mechelen/Malines around 1520 as son of Lieven vander Vaert. The family probably moved to Ghent where Filips entered the Observant Franciscans in the Provincia Flandriae. After his profession and education, Filips became from 1546 onwards a rural preacher in the neighbourhood of Ghent and from 1550 also in the town itself. Later in life, according to the necrology of the friary of Ghent, he became vicar and guardian and provincial (but it remains unclear when exactly), and difinitor in 1563. In addition to such administrative charges, he was apparently involved with the spiritual care of the Grey Sisters in Nevele and Ghent (1562/1563), and in 1569 he is found in Aalst, where he takes care of Gray sisters who themselves took care of Plague victims and needed spiritual support when they started to die. Filips had some religious-literary ambitions and published in 1570 a book with meditative exercises and additional poems on Christ's passion and spiritual impact for man, divided over seven days, entitled Werck-Clocke des eeuwichs levens (Labour clock of eternal life). Around the same time, he was forced to stop his pastoral activities because of ill health, as also becomes clear from remarks in his work (maybe also related to his actions in Aalst, where he finished the work while serving the sisters who worked with Plague victims, and themselves suffered losses), and he died in 1571.

works

Een zonderlynghe devoot Boecxken tot alle oprechte gheloovige Christen menschen, om zalich te moghen werdene: ghenaemt de Weck-Clocke des eeuwichs levens (Ghent: Ghileyn Manilius, 1570). The work was dedicated to the bailif Pieter van Overbeke and to the urban authorities of Ghent. The title alludes to the clock/bell that sounded at the beginning of each work day and called the workers of the town to their tasks. Likewise, the work wants to call the Christians to the devout performance of and reflection on their faith, as fdevout Christian workers (vrome Christen-werck-luyden). The work furnished contemplations/thoughts on the Passion of Christ for every week day, starting on Monday, and with many evangelical citations, making the work nearly a devotional Gospel commentary. The work also warns in the process against a number of heretical sects (Lutherans, Zwinglians, Calvinists, Mennonists and Anabaptists). The work includes five, in part rather polemic Refereynen or poems in the Dutch/Flemish Rhetoric-Chamber (Rederijker) tradition: ‘Een Gheestelick nieu Refereyn, - Comt alle tot my, zo is Christus voort'; ‘Een Refereyn als een oratio der zondaren, die dit boecxken met profyte lesen‘; ‘Een Gheestelick nieu Liedeken, op den voys: Adieu schoon Janneken - Willen wy aensien met drouven sinne‘; Een Gheestelic Refereyn Ghestelt voor een nieu jaer, tot een vernieuwen des Levens, deur Gods ghenadicheyt‘; ‘Een Gheestelic Refereyn totten Zondaren, ende verdoolde menschen. Int Jaer M.CCCCC.LCXX - Wat maect ghy, wat smaect ghy, o menschen dwaes...‘

Polycarpus Poncelet (Polycarpe Poncelet, fl. second half 18th cent.)

OFMRec. French friar [? to what extent was he really member of the Franciscan order?] from Verdun. After his religious formation, he devoted his life first and foremost to chemical and biological explorations and experiments, leading for instance to a peculiar chemistry of taste and odor, which he linked to the harmony of tones and in which he proposed ways to create interesting alcoholic beverages and parfums; another quite peculiar treatise on thunder and the reproduction in plants and animals, etc. In addition, he issued a multi-volume treatise on the education of noble children. None of these works present him clearly as a Recollect friar. A type of grass/herb is named after him, namely Ponceletia arundonacea Thouars.

OM. Spanish friar from Barcelona. Joined the order in the Aragon province. Guardian of the Barcelona convent in 1313. Confessor of the Archbishop of Toledo (Infante Juan d’Aragon). Diplomat and theological counsellor for king Jacob II of Aragon (a.o. mission to Naples). Provincial minister of Aragon (1336-1350). In this latter function he was involved with the redaction of the 1337 general constitutions (the so-called constitutions of Cahors). He died at Barcelona on 3 December 1350. Known for his wide-ranging commentaries on all biblical books, as well as a related Series patriarcharum, regum Israel et Juda, imperatorum Romanorum, summorum pontificum, a Tractatus de mundi aetatibus et tentationibus et de antichristo (see also Petrus Thomae), and a Catena Aurea (c.f. T. Kaeppeli, `Mitteilungen über Thomashandschriften der Bibl. Naz. Di Neapel', Angelicum, 10 (1933), 115). Until the Spanish civil war (1936), many of his manuscripts were present in the provincial library of Toledo (mss. Toledo, Provincial. 444-451). Several of his works are still present in the Biblioteca de Catalunya of Barcelona (a.o. his Apocalypse commentary, in Barcelona, Biblioteca de Catalunya 545 (Dalmases 30)).  Poncio started in 1318 with a commentary on Job for his former pupil, the Archbishop of Toledo, following the Moralia in Job of Gregory the Great. Between 1319 and 1329, he commented upon the Psalms, the Apocalypse, the Song of Songs and Daniel. Between 1329 and 1334, he wrote a Catena on the Gospels and wrote another commentary on Job, now following Nicholas of Lyra’s Postilla Litteralis. Thereafter, many more commentaries on other biblical books followed. Central in his commentaries was the expositio, a chain-like compilation of the sayings of major exegetes (esp. church fathers) on the passage in question. Hence, Poncio is more a compilor than an independent commentator. Many of his comments resemble the Catena Aurea of Thomas Aquinas, which seems to have been one of his major sources. Yet Poncio also used the commentaries of Peter Aureol and Nicholas of Lyra to flesh out his comments. In general, he followed Aureol’s division of biblical books. Nicholas of Lyra’s influence is strongest in Poncio’s second commentary on Job and in his commentary on Ezechiel.

Pontius Fegeronus (Ponce Feugeyron (fl. c. 1430)

OM. French (Provençal) Franciscan inquisitor, and probable author of the Errores Gazariorum (Errors of the Gazarii), which connected witchcraft with heresy and contained one of the earlier expositions on witches’ sabbaths. Ponce, who also fulminated against the Jews and engaged in Talmud burnings, was a close collaborator of Giorgio of Saluzzo (Georges of Saluces: bishop of Aosta in the duchy of Savoy from 1433 until 1440, and then bishop of Lausanne from 1440 until his death in 1461), known for his staunch promotion of church discipline, anti-heretical activities (notably against the Waldensians/vaudois) and witch hunts.
