Lectura Secunda (Quaestiones in I Sententiarum Petri Lombardi), Adam de Wodeham, Set

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Adam de Wodeham († 1358), a Franciscan philosopher and theologian, was the most brilliant disciple of William of Ockham († 1347), and a competent and reliable interpreter of the teaching of his master. The publication of his previously unedited work is a sequel and complement to the edition of William of Ockham’s Opera Philosophica et Theologica.

In the prologue Wodeham questions what evidence is accessible to us in the present life. The first three questions of Distinction 1 deal with the nature of science generally, and specifically with theology as a science.
Only after a significant discussion concerning these questions does Wodeham proceed to fruition and beatific vision, the subjects with which most authors begin Distinction 1. From the end of volume I, through the Distinctiones in volumes II and III, Wodeham follows the order of Peter Lombard’s Sentences.

This set includes:

Volume I
Prologus et distinctio 1
edited by Rega Wood.

Volume II
Distinctiones 2-7
edited by (†) Gedeon Gál, OFM.

Volume III
Distinctiones 8-26

Produced over a career of six decades, Allan Wolter’s monumental editions, translations, commentaries

of John Duns Scotus. The present collections brings together twelve of Wolter’s seminal articles, most of which have never been reprinted, as well as two new studies written for this volume. They range over
the length of Wolter’s career and represent the breadth of his interests: Scotus’s literary
production and academic career, his metaphysics, ethics, and theologoy, and his relation to Ockham and other Franciscan theologians.

The Eucharistic Teaching of William Ockham

by Gabriel Buescher, OFM STD

Additional DescriptionMore Details

With a more detailed study of Ockham's teaching on the Eucharist, it is hoped, it will be determined whether the Venerable Inceptor was deserving of the suspicion and the blame heaped on his head by the ex-chancellor of Oxford and of the censure subsequently attached to some of his Eucharistic teachings by the papal commission at Avignon.

The Theory of Knowledge of Vital du Four

by John E. Lynch, CSP, PhD
edited by Stephen F. Brown, OFM

Additional DescriptionMore Details

French Franciscan Vital Du Four was a counselor to two popes, Clement V and John XXII, and was a central figure in the poverty controversy of the early fourteenth century. Vital du Four (Bazas, 1260-Avignon, 1327) was a French Franciscan theologian and scholastic philosopher. He became Cardinal in 1312 and bishop of Albano in 1321. This book is principally concerned with the eight disputed questions - De cognitione - which were written at Toulouse between 1297 and 1300; during the time of the great poverty controversy. A number of Vital du Four's works were historically and erroneously attributed to John Duns Scotus. Writing in the period between Bonaventure and Duns Scotus, Vital du Four reflects the influence of Bonaventure and, in turn, influenced Scotus. In Vital du Four, one finds a Franciscan who - even before Scotus - was powerfully affected by the philosophy of Henry of Ghent. He accentuated the primacy of intuition and the importance of the individual in his writings which had a profound affect upon the history of philosophy and theology when they were articulated in the writings of a next-generation philosopher and Franciscan, William of Ockham.
