Chapter Summary

Two of the controversial points in the on-going debate over the meaning and context of the so-called anti-nominalist arts faculty statute of December 29, 1340 are (1) the degree of authoritative weight to be assigned to the rubric that accompanies the statute in its published version in the Chartularium Universitatis Parisiensis as well as the manuscript from which it was edited; and (2), whether the statute or statutes referred to respectively in the Proctor's Register for the English nation and in the first of the two arts faculty oaths concerned with the scientia occamica is or is not identical with the statute of December 29, 1340. The published Chartularium for the University of Paris, edited by Heinrich Denifle and Émile Châtelain in the 1890s, is a work of the highest scholarship which for the most part obviates the need to consult the manuscripts that lie behind it.
