Sample text

He continues to maintain that if persecution plays such an important role in the Church’s history, the reason lies in the fact that persecution was of central importance in the life of Christ. 29 Christ’s life, according to d’Ailly, reveals a threefold period of persecution. The first, he declares, came early when Herod sought to find the newly-born child of Bethlehem in order to kill him. The second came during the years of Christ’s ministry when the scribes and doctors of the Law unceasingly charged him with acting contrary to the true spirit of the Law.

Looking at the vast panorama of tribulations that beset the Church of the late Middle Ages, d’Ailly could 36 Epistola I ad Joannem XXIII, Dupin, 2:876. ‘Sciendum est igitur quod exercitatis in sacra Scriptura ita notorium est quod Ecclesia patietur, quod ad hoc allegare superfluum videtur …’ 37 Epistola I ad Joannem XXIII, Dupin, 2:877–878. 26 chapter one only conclude that the stage was well set for the arrival of the Antichrist and the beginning of the sixth and final stage of persecution. When we look at the sources which d’Ailly drew upon for the apocalyptic context of his De persecutionibus ecclesiae, we find that, in addition to the traditional biblical sources, the Franciscan influence so prominent in his early apocalyptic writings is again in evidence and with even greater emphasis.

10:11 and 1Jn. 2:18 that the Church is in the final age but he now maintains that these indications are too general. 63 While d’Ailly does not make clear to what extent such prophecy follows upon a close study and analysis of the Scriptural texts related to matters apocalyptic, it seems reasonable to suppose that given the general orientation of his apocalyptic teaching such is generally the case. Prophetic inspiration based upon the Scripture, therefore, can make more specific the general and even confusing teaching of the Scriptures as to the nature and time of the final age.
