Place et rôle des Franciscains au Concile de Vienne

Abstract : Between 1311 and 1312, Pope Clement V summoned an Ecumenical Council in Vienne on Dauphiné. It is known chiefly as having canceled Knights Templar's Order, but it is less known for its other objects. It was organized in three public sessions, concerning Knights Templar's Order, the crusade and Church reformation. My work studies this last point. Described as a "transitional council" by Joseph Lecler, the council of Vienne had to reform the Catholic Church, at the time when the worries about the national interests won against the Catholic's unity. It had also to correct the Church, some clergymen and laity complaining about the carelessness of the clergy.
The council of Vienne, also deliberated about the quarrels in the Franciscan order, between the Spirituals (in which Ubertin of Casale was one of the leaders) and the Conventual party. The third session of the council, which was held on 6 May 1312, published two constitutions about the Franciscans: one about poverty "Exivi de Paradiso", and the other dogmatic "Fidei catholicae fundamento", about soul and body.
