Chapter Summary

Scholars have studied the strategies through which Observants and their allies advanced reform in practice, especially in studies of the expanding power of territorial princes. Many have also recognized at least in passing how ideals of community shaped reform in practice, usually in the context of broader studies of reform. This chapter offers another study of the move from principle to practice. It traces how the reform ideology of property and community traced above came to be applied in the years after the Council of Constance. The analysis is limited to the reform of Benedictines and Augustinian canons because the textual trail of treatises, codices and authors has most often lead to their well-documented circles. From these sources emerges a sense of how contemporaries preached, argued over, applied and resisted their eras new reforming ideology of property and community.

Keywords: Augustinian canons; Benedictines; church property; Observants; reformed community
