Olivi and Bonaventure. Paradoxes of Faithfulness


Peter John Olivi’s relationship to Bonaventure is an intriguing one. Despite many marks of admiration, Olivi clearly stands in retrospect as the Franciscan theologian who embarked in the most devastative critique of the main tenets of Bonaventure’s metaphysics. The proclamations of faithfulness to Bonaventure can only make sense if perceived as the sign of a personal relationship, and admiration for a charismatic and prophetical figure, showing the Franciscan Order and indeed the whole Church the path towards the future.
