Alan Friedlander (au). The beginning of the 14th century witnessed a profound change in the society & the politics of medieval Europe. In France, the regime of Philip the Fair & his ministers asserted with increasing boldness the power & prerogatives of royal authority, creating tensions most pronounced in the region of Languedoc. The Franciscan friar Bernard Delicieux was one of the most controversial figures in the south of France. Politician, agitator, tribune of the people & enemy of the Inquisition, interpreter of prophecies, hero & leader of the Spiritual Franciscans, he engaged in the many struggles, secular & sacred, of his time & of his region. This vol. contains an Introduction to the Inquisition’s trial of 1319 against Bernard Delicieux, which ended with his condemnation, degradation from spiritual office, & imprisonment, which within a year resulted in his death; Impedimentum Officii Inquisitionis, a discussion of the charges brought against him; & Processus Bernardi Delitiosi, the Latin text of the official records of the trial, which survives in only one source, a copy prepared in the 17th century by Etienne Baluze from a manuscript then conserved in the archives of Carcassonne.
