Abstract

Some Friars Minor within the 'ribellion' of Todi in the years 1328-1332 In 1329 the franciscan friar Bartolinus of Perugia filed two lawsuits, one against the “rebel” friars of the convent of San Fortunato of Todi and one against the citizen of Todi, who took sides with the excommunicated emperor Ludwig of Bavaria and the antipope Nicolaus V. These trials can be considered part of a broad strategy of John XXII, aiming the defeat of his enemies through inquisitorial proceedings (for example against the Visconti, the Este and the signori of Osimo and Recanati). The exceptional richness of the records regarding the Friars Minor of San Fotunato of Todi – until now, the only records relating to an entire Franciscan community indicted by John XXII principally of being supporters of Michael of Cesena – allows to follow the construction and development of the procedures, beginning with denunciations and continuing with citations, excommunications for non-appearance and, finally, the appeal addressed by the friars to frater Bartolinus of Perugia. The lack of the definitive judgment is a frustrating loss that does not prevent to enframe the franciscan “rebellion” of Todi in the wider context of the disunion of the Brothers of Francis of Assisi, of the long-standing conflicts among the Friars Minor and of the opposition of a part of them to the not accomodating policy of John XXII.
