Title Background

Chaucer’s Pardoner and the ‘Office of Preacher.

Chaucer’s Pardoner and the ‘Office of Preacher.

Incidental references (esp. 106). B.Prol.68 is compared with CTVI.391-94 as examples of how pardoners’ usurpation of the office of preacher is identified as a basic fault that gives rise to others. B.13.124 and C.11.132 are considered echoes of the debate, one side of which contended that theology was not truly a science in the Aristotelian sense.
