(p.34) 3 MS BAV vat. lat. 3740
Pope John XXII and his Franciscan Cardinal


Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by describing the MS BAV vat. lat. 3740 as the best source for the origins of apostolic poverty controversy because its contents are contemporary with the events of 1322-23, and because, in being made for Pope John, it is an historical artefact. It then discusses that the manuscript has around sixty texts that were grouped into five sections based on two factors: the status of the contributors and the nature of their response to the Pope's question about apostolic poverty. It theorises that the first section of the manuscript was abbreviated.

Keywords:   MS BAV vat. lat. 3740, apostolic poverty, Tocco, Pope John XXII, apostolic poverty controversy
