Sample text

36 chapter one this regard since the revelation contained therein is obviously closer chronologically to the final times, yet such is not the case. As seen earlier in his sermon, he admits that there are indications in l Cor. 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.

All this is not to say that d’Ailly’s hope for ecclesiastical renewal rested upon the Franciscan Order as many Spiritual Franciscans maintained. As has been seen, this was clearly not the case. Such a view, moreover, would hardly be consonant with the tradition of the secular clergy which d’Ailly so prominently represented and defended. Nevertheless, as will be seen, it was the evangelical ideal so nobly represented by the Francis and the application of that ideal to the secular clergy in a manner consonant with their lifestyle which provided him with such high hopes for the renewal of the Church.

While d’Ailly had referred to Augustine’s earlier and more positive attitude towards the availability of such knowledge, he now faces up to the full force of Augustine’s later view. He readily acknowledges that Augustine in his De civitate Dei used Acts 1:7 to argue against the possibility of knowing when the sixth age of human history, the period of the Church’s history, would come to a close. Augustine maintained that if God had intended man to have clear knowledge about the arrival of the Antichrist and the second advent of Christ, what better way to reveal it to him than through the instrumentality of Christ himself.
