Chapter Summary

As Gerald Odonis claims in the prologue, his Liber de contractibus et restitutionibus et de sententia excommunicationis is meant to support his confreres in the difficult task of confession by providing a synthesis of the major theologi-cal teachings on the subject. Odonis openly states that his work does not aim at a full treatment of the topic, but is a personal selection of the most frequent situations that confessors have to face. The third and final section of the treatise is in large part an adaptation of Bérenger Frédol's Liber de excommunicatione. Odonis emphasizes the need for merchants by pointing out that not every Englishman is expected to travel to Gascony to buy his wine. Finally, one more interesting discussion confi rms that the treatise was composed in a university context, and certainly that of Toulouse. A development about restitutions deals with a case of academic competition.
