On doubts on the grounds of good sense that this article is condemned by an authority authorized to do so. The discussion increasingly involves the question of papal authority as potentia absoluta and ordinata.&t; Sometimes the universal papal authority in the church and that of the greater and lesser local prelates appear as competing pastoral powers. Henry of Ghent had greatly influenced theology and the church around the turn of the fourteenth century.
