    Preaching Precedes Theology: Roger Bacon on the Failure of Mendicant Education.Timothy J. Johnson - 2010 - Franciscan Studies 68:83-95.
    In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak on a topic that is of interest to all of us, inasmuch as it pertains to our summer endeavor, Franciscan education. I will do so, however, from the perspective of Roger Bacon – the Doctor Mirabilis – a friar who held his Order's education system in contempt. His scathing attacks included equally strong words for the Augustinians, Carmelites and Dominicans, (...)

    Back to Bacon: Dieter Hattrup and Bonaventure's Authorship of the De Reductione.Timothy J. Johnson - 2009 - Franciscan Studies 67:133-147.
    In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:IntroductionWhen I first came across Dieter Hattrup's analysis of the De reductione I noted that the professor from Paderborn was trying, step by step, to trace the authorship back to friars influenced by Roger Bacon – a reductio ad Baconem, if you will. Hattrup's argument that Roger Bacon was indirectly involved in the composition of the De reductione evoked the fleeting memory of a pop culture game created by (...)

    Compendium of the Study of Philosophy by Roger Bacon.Timothy J. Johnson - 2020 - Franciscan Studies 78 (1):305-309.
    Thomas S. Maloney has once again provided an engaging and carefully edited translation and critical edition of a major text of Roger Bacon. Scholars of Bacon already enjoy Maloney's other edited translations, On Signs and The Art and Science of Logic, as well as the critical edition of the Compendium of the Study of Theology. Maloney turns his attention in this new volume to the English Minorite's Compendium studii philosophiae and, in addition to his commentary and translation, provides a critical (...)

    Dream Bodies and Peripatetic Prayer: Reading Bonaventure's Itinerarium with Certeau.Timothy J. Johnson - 2005 - Modern Theology 21 (3):413-427.
    The erstwhile sedentary Parisian theologian, Bonaventure of Bagnoregio, traveled extensively throughout Europe after his election as Minister General of the Minorite Order in 1257. In the fall of 1259 he arrived on Mount La Verna in Tuscany. As he ruminated on the stigmatized flesh of Francis of Assisi, Bonaventure composed the classical mystical text, Itinerarium mentis in Deum. Utilizing Michel de Certeau's work on prayer, travel narratives and spatial practices, this essay explores how Bonaventure rereads the story of the Poverello (...)

    Fides Ex Auditu: Alexander of Hales and the Franciscan School on the Ministry of Preaching.Timothy J. Johnson - 2020 - Franciscan Studies 78 (1):51-66.
    Appealing to Romans 10:17, Summa Halensis states, "'faith comes from hearing' and preaching is the exterior medium whereby people are instructed and moved to receive grace."1 Given this claim it may come as a surprise to many, that Francis of Assisi did not necessarily understand his propositum vitae to focus on the ministry of preaching. In his musings in the Testament two years before his death in 1226, he claims that the vocation of the brothers was to live according to (...)

    In the Workshop of a Theologian The Life of Our Blessed Father Francis by Thomas of Celano.Timothy J. Johnson - 2016 - Franciscan Studies 74:249-262.
    At the outset I would like to note how much I enjoyed working with Jacques, Sean, and Solanus on this year-long project. This session today is the culmination of our combined efforts, and with Wayne – my longstanding mentor and friend – here everything has come full circle. Indeed, I am honored today to present a paper on The Rediscovered Life. As we have already heard, Jacques’ research indicates this vita was authored sometime between 1232-1239. This date alone may be (...)

    Wonders in Stone and Space: Theological Dimensions of the Miracle Accounts in Celano and Bonaventure.Timothy J. Johnson - 2009 - Franciscan Studies 67:71-90.
    In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:This essay considers hagiography as a spatial-theological genre emerging, so to speak, from the crypts of Christian martyrs where liturgical celebrations commemorate their paradoxical witness to the Paschal mystery, whereby the faithful gain eternal life through temporal death. Later the virtues and miracles of holy men and women, such as ascetics, bishops, mystics and founders of religious communities, are recounted in vitae intended for liturgical offices and contemplative reflection.
