Chapter Summary

Teaching and learning played an important role in the spiritual and intellectual lives of the medieval religious orders. In the thirteenth century, dissatisfied with the education offered in their internal schools, monks and canons turned to the universities for the intellectual formation of their brightest students. During the period of the mendicant controversy and the sixty years beyond, seventeen monks and canons regular are known to have or thought to have produced quodlibeta, eight canons regular and nine monks. Prosper of Reggio Emilia’s collection of reportationes presents the quodlibeta of one monk and three canons regular: Peter of Saint-Denis, OSB, Gerard of Saint-Victor, OSA Saint-Victor, John of Maroeuil, OSA Mont-Saint-Éloi, and John du Val, OSA Val-des-Écoliers. This chapter includes three appendices that deal with the quodlibetal questions of Pierre Roger, OSB, Guy of L’aumône, OCIST, and Nicholas of Vaux-Cernay, OCIST, respectively.
