Chapter Summary

This contribution consists of two parts. The first, which shows Henry of Ghent's role in the events of March 1277, relies on historical sources and especially on Henry's autobiographical notes. The second part is based on a reading of some of the significant passages in Henry's works which, from QuodlibetlI onwards, allow a closer look at Henry's later interpretation of the series of condemnations and censures of March 1277. In the light of the five test cases analyzed here Henry's interpretation of the events of March 1277 appears to be characteristically nuanced. Among the board of examiners of Giles's positions, Henry of Ghent played neither a minor part nor was he the only moving force behind Giles's process. The phraseology of at least twelve of Giles's involved positions can be traced back in the very formulas used by Henry for stating the opposite theses.

Keywords: events; Giles's process; Henry of Ghent; March 1277; QuodlibetlI
