Chapter Summary

The question of Augustinianism vs. Ockhamism has to some degree been derived from Reformation historiography to the theological traditions of his own order, the Augustinian Hermits, or to the theological traditions of his university training, dependent on the thought of Gabriel Biel who, in turn, was heavily dependent on Ockham. The Oxford lectures of Wodeham on the Sentences as well as his earlier lectures at Norwich and London were available in some form in England by 1334. Gregory of Rimini seems to have been the first author on the Continent to refer to the writings of Adam Wodeham. Of all the Austin Friars in the fourteenth century, one of the most conservative, anti-Pelagian was Hugolino of Orvieto. The Augustinians were certainly aware of the ties, indeed the close relationship, between Wodeham and Ockham, and yet they did not hesitate to incorporate Wodeham into the structure of their scholastic arguments.

Keywords: Adam Wodeham; Augustinian; Gregory of Rimini; Hugolino of Orvieto; Ockhamism
