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

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.
