The Friars Minor in China (1925 - 1955)

edited by Arnulf Camps, OFM, and Pat McCloskey, OFM

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Genghis Kahn and Francis of Assisi were contemporaries, but lived worlds apart. By the mid-1200s, their followers had encountered each one another in Karakorum (Mongolia). In 1294, John of Monte Corvino settled in Khanbaliq (Beijing) and began preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ in modern-day China. By the time of his death in 1328, friars from several countries had begun to build up a Church truly Chinese and truly Catholic. This book presents the life and work of the Friars Minor in China during the last 700 years. Based on 1,110 pages of scientific monographs, the text concentrates on the years 1925-1955 yet provides considerable information up through 1995. The Order of Friars Minor grew from John of Monte Corvino's early efforts beginning in 1294 to include 28 mission territories. In 1948 there were over 700 friars working in China, about 20% of whom were Chinese.

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.
