Bernard Lombardi


French Dominican theologian; fl. 1323 to 1333. He entered the order at Perpignan in southern France. In 1323, when he was prior of the house in Avignon and vicar provincial, he was elected seventh provincial of Provence. At the general chapter of the order in 1326, he was assigned to read the Sentences at Paris the following year, but he was not relieved of his administrative office. At the request of certain brethren, john xxii absolved him from administrative duties during his academic term at Paris. He lectured on the Sentences in 132728, becoming master during the academic year 133132. He was regent for at least one year; one of his quodlibets is still extant. Avignon Manuscript 320 contains a number of his sermons (collationes ). His unpublished commentary on the Sentences gives full details of the three commentaries on the Sentences composed by durandus of saint-pourÇain. In it he expresses clearly his own views on the Thomistic doctrines questioned by Durandus. This stand was prompted by the strong legislation of the general chapter of the order in 1329 regarding adherence to the teaching of St. thomas aquinas.

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
