Chapter Summary

In a 1987 essay Richard Southern raised a number of significant issues concerning the respective roles of Parisian masters and the papacy in judging the orthodoxy of university teaching. In the following year, in a presidential address to the American Society of Church history, the author suggested two modifications to Southern's perceptive thesis. The first was that theological masters did not lose their role in judging the orthodoxy of the writings and teachings of university masters and bachelors. Secondly, John XXII did not exclude or marginalize theologians from the papal curia, but in many cases welcomed them to Avignon - not to teach, although several taught in the papal stadium and others engaged in quodlibetal disputations, but to serve in other ways.
