Chapter Summary

Richard FitzRalph was bachalarius in sacra pagina after August 1328 and completed his lectures on the Sentences before October 1329. Although FitzRalph later turned away from scholasticism, his lectures on the Sentences have turned out to be of greater importance than might have at first been realized by authors such as Gordon Leff. This chapter includes a list of manuscripts of FitzRalph's Commentary on the Sentences. Some writers such as Leff have sought for some radicalism in FitzRalph's Lectura as an anticipation of the polemical Armachanus. The Lectura does not consciously follow the plan of the Sentences; indeed, at times seeking to find an order for the quaestiones by linking them to the order of the distinctions in the Sentences has not always yielded very clear results.
