This is the second session on Mendicant Networks and has a focus on networks of textual transmission. First, it centers around networks of mendicant text production in 13th-century liturgical manuscripts (Smith) from a Dominican perspective and sermons (Chandler) from the Carmelite order. Secondly, it adds another point of view by including an anti-mendicant poem in a monastic chronicle (Thakkar) which will shed new light on the mendicants' (often conflictual) relationship with monastic orders via texts. Kammerlander takes a more organisational approach by analysing the role of mendicant networks in the foundation of the University of Toulouse.
