Biography/Description

One of the most prominent theologians of his age, Johannes succeeded Petrus de Alliaco as professor of theology and chancellor of the University of Paris. Jean proposed solutions to the enduring schism in the Roman Church in numerous treatises and took part in the Council of Constance ending the conflict. His involvement in the conciliar movement made it dangerous for him to return to Paris in 1419, so he spent the final years of his life at Lyons. He was also the author of several highly successful confessional works which he combined in an Opus tripartitum, as well as other pamphlets on canonical matters.
