Pope John XXII and his Franciscan Cardinal


Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by examining the figure apparently caught in the middle of such conflict: the Franciscan Cardinal, Bertrand de la Tour. It focuses on investigating Pope John XXII's personal background. It assesses John's education and whether he had any theological training. It also presents evidence on the reaction of Pope John XXII to the Chapter General. It talks about how John continued his explanation of how the retention domini arrangement had harmed the Franciscans' state of perfection. It ends where the apostolic poverty controversy begins. It clarifies the idea that the Papacy, in the person of Pope John XXII, originally opposed the notion of papal infallibility cannot be substantiated by a thorough analysis of the evidence of the controversy over apostolic poverty.

Keywords:   Bertrand de la Tour, Quia nonnumquam, Pope John XXII, Chapter General, Ad Conditorem, apostolic poverty
