A Translation of William of Ockham's

A Translation of William of Ockham's "Work of Ninety Days"

by William

Editorial Reviews

Ockham's (1285-1349) culminated a century of conflict over the ideal of gospel poverty started when Francis of Assisi discovered poverty as the life chosen by Christ, and founded the orders and movement to propagate it. He was requested by his superior in the Franciscan order to examine and respond to a series of bulls promulgated by Pope John XXII during the 1320s rejecting the concept of Christ's and the apostles' poverty. The importance of the work has been obscured because the Franciscans lost that intellectual battle. Kilcullen and Scott (both Macquarie U.) draw on partial translations that Kilcullen had worked on, and translate the rest. They do not annotate it, nor provide an index. The two volumes of this title are paged together, but priced separately. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
