Chapter Summary

The Great Schism stirred the ambition and ingenuity of the European clergy and nobility as it defied solution over almost 40 years. Honorat Bovets earliest work, the Arbre des batailles of 1389, earned him posthumous renown; in this work and in two other literary texts, he offers trenchant commentary on the Schism at crucial moments in the last decade of the 14th century, as the court of France and the Gallican church struggled with the recalcitrance of popes in Avignon and Rome. His extant works, sincere attempts to steer western policy at a crucial moment, engage the central issues of the day with admirable rigor and courage. This chapter concerns itself with Bovets role in Schism-related issues, especially those concerning the role of the French crown and the University of Paris in the three Paris councils that led to the French churchs withdrawal of obedience in the summer of 1398.
