Although this anthology of Franciscan poverty contains 187 selections grouped under 149 entries, it is no more than a modest sample of extant writings on the subject. Yet, because it includes examples of a wide variety of literary forms, authored by members of all branches of the Franciscan family representing ten language groups and all eight centuries of Franciscan history, it clearly demonstrates the continuity of the Franciscan tradition of poverty.

In preparation for the projected critical edition of Ockham’s Opera Philosophica et Theologica, Philotheus Boehner, OFM, described the extant manuscripts and discussed the authenticity and date of composition of Ockham’s writings. He also studied and illustrated Ockham’s teaching on logic, metaphysics, and political theories. Eligius Buytaert, OFM, Boehner’s successor and disciple collected, regrouped, and indexed 24 articles in this volume, which is an indispensable introduction to the study of William of Ockham.

THE FIRST FRANCISCAN WOMAN: CLARE OF ASSISI & HER FORM OF LIFE by Sr. Margaret Carney, OSF. Clare of Assisi (1193-1253) was the most important woman who emerged within the unfolding history of the movement inspired by Francis of Assisi. She joined him in his search for a way to incarnate the powerful message of the Gospel of Christ in a situation of economic, social and ecclesiastical reformation. She has been revered through the centuries as his disciple, friend, and co-worker.

Petrus Thomae taught and wrote in the first half of the fourteenth century. He belonged to the first group of Formalists, as the proponents of the formal distinction immediately after Scotus were called. Apparently, he was an outstanding light, even though at present he is so little known. The study in this book is presented in three major parts. Part I investigates Peter's teaching on the nature and kinds of identity. Part II takes up the nature and kinds of distinction. Part III concludes with a study of the distinction of the categories. Because the Spanish Franciscan Friar Petrus Thomae (died about 1350) was an immediate disciple of John Duns Scotus, it is natural that his doctrine reflects the teaching of the master and contributes to its better understanding. The important place which the formal distinction occupies in the system of Scotus is well known. Petrus Thomae composed an extensive work entitled De Formalitatibus, in which he explains and defends this much-criticized Scotistic position.

Anglican Bishop and renowned medievalist John Moorman writes in his preface to this terrific, short biography of Francis of Assisi that Francis has something to say to people of all kinds. He was a mystic with a special interest in, and understanding of, nature. He was a poet, the first to write in verse in any modern language. He was a man of great courage, risking his life in carrying out his ideals, He inspired large numbers of men to give away all that they possessed and live as vagabonds, begging their bread from door to door, All these things were important, and all combine to make him a very remarkable man. But perhaps the thing about him which appeals to us most today is the challenge which he threw down to the standards and values of the ordinary, secular life of man.
