Francis of Meyronnes (Franciscus Mayronius OFM, Franciscus de Meyronnes, Franciscus von Meyronnes, Franciscus de Mayronis de Digna, Franciscus de Mayronis, Franz von Mayronis, Doctor illuminatus, c 1288-1328) was an Franciscan theologian and philosopher of the middle ages. He followed Duns Scotus in defending the formal distinction, the univocity of being, the concept of haecceity, the absolute predestination of Christ and the immaculate conception. He was born into a noble family of Provence, with connections to the house of Anjou. [1]


Francis was born in Meyronnes in the Alpes de Haute-Provence. His family was closely connected with Charles I of Anjou . He became friar in the Digne convent (Provence province). He probably followed a lectorate course at the Paris studium (Autumn 1304-July 1307), where he became acquainted with the theology of Scotus. After his lectorate studies, he taught the Sentences in various Franciscan studia of France and Italy, and for some time was custodian of the Sisteron custody. He went up for his theology degree course and read the Sentences pro gradu magisterii at Paris 1320-21.

He took a stand, probably before 1323 on the debate about apostolic poverty, arguing in favour of absolute poverty. This did not lead him into conflict with Pope John XXII.


Francis left a large body of writing (see below), mostly edited.
