The Watershed of Modern Politics

This chapter addresses the highly distinctive ecclesiologies hammered by Marsiglio of Padua and William of Ockham to examine the degree to which they contributed to the understanding of the nature and history of conciliarism. This notion derives from a reform movement in the fourteenth-, fifteenth-, and sixteenth-century Catholic Church, which held that supreme authority in the Church resided with an Ecumenical council, apart from, or even against, the Pope. Both men were considered leading adherents to the conciliarist viewpoint and other conciliarist thinking at large. The chapter also elucidates interpretative confusions caused by the traditional inclusion of Marsiglio and Ockham among the ranks of the conciliarists.

Keywords:   Marsiglio of Padua, William of Ockham, conciliarist viewpoint, conciliarist thinking, conciliarists
