Organisateurs IRHT

Un colloque est organisé à l'Institutum Carmelitarum de Rome du jeudi 9 au samedi 11 mai 2024, dans le cadre du projet ERC Debate n° 771589, autour de l'œuvre de John Baconthorpe (c. 1290-c. 1350). Malgré son importance dans l'histoire de l'Ordre du Carmel, John Baconthorpe (c. 1290-c. 1350) est encore relativement peu connu des modernes de la pensée médiévale.

Despite his importance in the history of the Carmelite Order, John Baconthorpe (c. 1290-c. 1350) is still relatively unknown to modern scholars of medieval thought. Active in the Universities of Oxford, Paris, and Cambridge, Baconthorpe was later chosen by his order as a doctrinal guide, which resulted in multiple printings (from the late 15th to the mid-18th centuries) of one version of his Parisian questions on the Sentences and of his Quodlibeta. Although only a handful of experts have delved into his works, whether in print or in manuscript, Baconthorpe’s intellectual project was ambitious and fascinating in the context of fourteenth-century philosophy and theology, with surviving commentaries on Matthew (in a Cambridge manuscript) and (in Paris, BnF, lat. 9540) on Augustine’s De Trinitate and De civitate Dei and on Anselm’s De incarnatione and Cur Deus homo. In his writings, the Doctor Resolutus gathered an impressive variety of sources and engaged in dialogue with towering contemporary figures, such as Peter Auriol, Thomas Bradwardine, and some of his Carmelite confrères, and he was critically independent of the leading mendicants and seculars of previous generations, such as Thomas Aquinas, Henry of Ghent, Giles of Rome, Godfrey of Fontaines, and John Duns Scotus.
