Peter Olivi

Peter John Olivi (1248-March 14, 1298) was a Franciscan theologian who, although he died professing the faith of the Roman Catholic Church, became a controversial figure in the arguments surrounding poverty at the beginning of the Fourteenth Century. He writings were condemned as heresy in 1299, and his tomb desecrated by members of his order in 1318. His support of the extreme view of ecclesiastical poverty played a part in the ideology of the groups coming to be known as the Fraticelli.
