Abstract:
The term the 'Medieval Doctrine of Poverty' is likely to suggest at first three things: 1.the high appreciation of voluntary poverty in the Middle Ages; 2. the problem of poverty and wealth in the Church and in the monastic and mendicant orders; 3. lastly the problem of rich and poor in medieval thinking. These three problems do not however exhaust all the contents of the Medieval Doctrine of Poverty. We do not propose to enumerate them all in this place, but we think it useful to understand a brief review of those scriptual ideas and stories, which shaped the beliefs and sentiments summed up in the common designation 'The Doctrine of Poverty".
