Abstract

Accusation that political opponents were heretics abounded in the later Middle Ages. The opponents of Pope John XXII (1316-1334) called him a heretic, and he condemned them in turn. This session will address the condemnations of Marsilius of Padua and William of Ockham, whose their names were used in later centuries to condemn political opponents as following their errors.
