Major Franciscan studies journal publishes article by Gies

Mar 04, 2021

An article by Dr. Aaron Gies, visiting professor of theology and Franciscan studies, and a fellow for Franciscan research at the Franciscan Institute, has been published in Archivum Franciscanum Historicum, a peer-reviewed major resource tool for scholars of Franciscan history.
The article's focus is on Gies' discovery of a previously unknown literary influence on the works of Alexander of Hales, O.F.M. (d. 1245), the first Franciscan to hold a chair of theology at the University of Paris. 
The finding, which Gies first publicly described in a public Zoom lecture as part of Francis Week 2020, is titled "A New Source for Alexander of Hales: Anselm of Laon, Glosae super Iohannem," and appears in Archivum Franciscanum Historicum 113 (2020): 587-609.
