Written at the height of the Mendicant Controversy at the University of Paris (1250-1256), it is not just another scholastic exercise. While this treatise teaches that the Franciscan friars follow the Gospel by being humble, poor, chaste, and obedient, it is also Bonaventure’s vigorous defense of the mendicant way of life against opponents such as William of Saint-Amour whose apocalyptic polemic painted the followers of the Poverello as forerunners of the Antichrist. Bonaventure skillfully defends the friars’ life of poverty and their obedience to the Church and Order.
