Chapter Summary

This chapter looks at the quodlibetal collections of three of the most influential Oxford theologians in the 1320s and 1330s, William of Ockham, Walter Chatton, and Robert Holcot. It provides a brief account of the lives and careers of these men, and presents a more careful accounting of the latest data regarding the dating, organization, and manuscript traditions for their respective quodlibetal collections. The chapter then considers some philosophical issues raised by the content of their work. In addition, it briefly discusses the Quodlibet of an important theologian, John of Rodington, who runs in this same Oxford tradition but whose Quodlibet de conscientia is still largely unedited. Finally, the chapter considers what the contents of these works reveal about the status of the quodlibetal form in this period, and its connection to some larger trends in English philosophical theology.

Keywords: English philosophical theology; John of Rodington; manuscript traditions; Oxford theologians; philosophical issues; quodlibetal collections; Robert Holcot; Walter Chatton; William of Ockham
