Chapter Summary

Between the second half of the fifteenth century and the first half of the seventeenth century, the Franciscan school network underwent significant changes. This chapter focuses on the work of the Observant Franciscan scholar Celestino Piana, and on the essays of the Conventual Franciscan scholar Lorenzo Di Fonzo. It also relies heavily on the surviving Franciscan statutes for the early modern period. Although it is dangerous to equate statutes and general chapter decisions with historical reality, a careful diachronical perusal of such materials does reveal ambitions and ongoing concerns. Hopefully, a deeper engagement with the Franciscan educational networks during this later period will help provide the context for a more satisfactory treatment of the intellectual currents within and beyond the Franciscan order family during the Counter Reformation and l'âge classique.
