Chapter Summary

The Registrum Facultatis theologiae. Ordo licentiatorum 1373-1694 compiled by Philippe Bouvot, beadle of the Faculty of Theology of the University of Paris in the seventeenth century, presents the names of thousands of clerics - secular and regular - who were licensed in theology at the University of Paris from the fourteenth through the seventeenth centuries. Bouvot inscribed in the Ordo licentiatorum the names of all the clerics licensed in theology between the years 1373 and 1694, listing - promotion by promotion - the name of each of thelicentiati and the date the license was granted. In assembling this biographical register, the author has attempted to apply some principles, with an appropriate degree of flexibility in view of the diversity of available materials. Since the register has been prepared with prosopographical studies in mind, data concerning the social origins and career subsequent to the individual's university experience are noted wherever possible.
