This chapter emphasises the importance of other sources for the origins of the apostolic poverty controversy under Pope John XXII. It discusses that the first of these sources is a manuscript, known as the MS BAV vat. lat. 3740, which has been a part of the papal library since the time of John XXII himself. It explains that the manuscript contains almost entirely responses to the question of whether it is heretical to assert that Christ and the apostles did not possess anything. It discusses that several other sources are anomalous and seem have a different origin. It narrates that Dominican enthusiasm for discussing apostolic poverty was second only to that of the Franciscans themselves.
