Peter of John Olivi's Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles: Thirty Days of Reflection and Prayer

by Robert J. Karris

Additional DescriptionMore Details

In the Middle Ages few authors produced commentaries on The Acts of the Apostles. Peter of John Olivi (1248-1298) authored an excellent exposition, basing himself on the previous work of Venerable Bede (672-735), Rabanus Maurus (780-856), and the Ordinary Gloss. His was a commentary mainly on the literal sense. From time to time he expounds on an allegorical meaning. His commentary stems from his lectures to Franciscan students and may date to ca. 1290.

Those who are acquainted with the previous three volumes in The Franciscan Masters of Scripture series will note that the translations from Peter of John Olivi’s Commentary on Acts are longer. There are two reasons for this. The Acts of the Apostles is composed largely of narrative and speeches, and it takes a commentator some time to explain how the narrative and speeches/sermons flow and to delve into nutty problems.

The Roman Catholic Lectionary for Sundays and Weekdays was the primary influence in the selection of the thirty days of texts from The Acts of the Apostles. In creating his Reflections, Karris has rarely commented on Peter of John Olivi’s exposition. Rather his goal was to focus the readers’ attention on the flow of Luke’s narrative and how his theological themes develop and intertwine.
Lord Jesus, open our eyes, our minds, our hearts through the words of Luke, to see, acknowledge, and love you as the first apostles did.

Peter of John Olivi, Set

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Peter of John Olivi (1248 - March 14, 1298) was a Franciscan theologian who, although he died professing the faith of the Catholic Church, became a controversial figure in the arguments surrounding poverty at the beginning of the fourteenth century. In large part, this was due to his view that the Franciscan vow of poverty also entailed usus pauper (i.e., ‘poor’ or ‘restricted’ use of goods); while contemporary Franciscans generally agreed that usus pauper was important to the Franciscan way of life, they disagreed that it was part of their
vow of poverty. His support of the extreme view of ecclesiastical poverty played a part in the ideology of the groups coming to be known as the Spiritual Franciscans or Fraticelli.

The Franciscan Institute has published critical editions of his commentaries on Acts, Genesis, and Isaiah: Peter of John Olivi on The Acts of the Apostles, 2001, and Peter of John Olivi on Genesis, 2007. Peter of John Olivi on the Bible, 1997, contains, besides his commentary on Isaiah, five principia on Scripture. A principium explained how the commentator of a text was going to go about his task. On the Bible contains as well the beginning of his commentary on I Corinthians, cut short by his death. His final words: “...no human being in his biological condition, especially with his padded and passing (evanescens et inflatus) science, is able to ascend in any way at all to the superintellectual and ecstatic contemplation of what God has prepared for those who love him, save focused on and lead by and absorbed into the Spirit of Christ.”

Poverty and Prosperity: Franciscans and the Use of Money

by C. Colt Anderson, Marie Dennis, Michael F. Cusato OFM, Steven McMichael, David Burr, Jane Kopas, Daria Mitchell OSF (editor)
Please click HERE for a sample of the book.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

The topic for this Symposium at Washington Theological Union in 2009 was chosen well in advance of the world economic crisis which developed in 2008-2009, but with that reality the theme was infused with additional significance. While plans to gather academics for a thought-provoking investigation into Franciscan traditions involving poverty continued, their presentations were balanced with insights from activists to bring the past into dialogue with the present in order to help us understand how we might think about our resources.

As the papers in this volume demonstrate, Franciscan poverty has and continues to develop and to elicit new forms in the life of the Church. This 2009 Symposium has raised many important questions and possibilities as to how Franciscans can and should use money that will be valuable for the Franciscan family to consider. Even so, the issues relating to prosperity still need further consideration. When one studies the history of the divisions of the Franciscan communities, it seems that they arise out of prosperity rather than poverty. How Franciscans respond to prosperity seems to play a significant role in how Franciscans respond to each other.
