About this item

In order to challenge what he sees as an over-emphasis on the influence of great men and the prevalence of Franciscans and Dominicans in the development of the University of Paris, Metzger examines Gerard of Abbeville, a secular Master of Theology from sometime during the late 1250s until his death in 1272. Gerard was an exact contemporary of Thomas Aquinas and Bonaventure, but was also an outspoken critic of the Franciscans and Dominicans, challenging especially their notion of evangelical poverty and defending traditional theological and ecclesiological positions. Furthermore, he says, Gerard's life and writings provide a much-needed window into the history and daily practices of the University of Paris during a period for which there are few sources of information.
