All the twists and turns in this book made it hard to put it down. I have never read a story like this where the whole family had issues.
It was like reading a soap opera. I loved how the characters who needed to overcome did and the ones that needed to pay for their actions did. Awesome, awesome, sorry and I am glad I read it.

When looking back to that episode, Luther recounted that this was the voice of God announcing a truth that he did not want to hear at that point of his life. The contraposition between monastic vows and commandments became a topos of the Lutheran polemics against monasticism, as this text synthetized by saying: Neque enim meum votum valebat hunc floccum, quo me subtrahebam parentis autoritati et voluntati divinitus mandatae, imo impium erat, et ex deo non esse probabat [ This is the second edition, after that printed in Wittenberg the same year.
One can note that, consciously or not, Lambert repeat- ed arguments that had already been used in the internal po- lemics among the Franciscans during the fifteenth century. How- ever, as soon as he was appointed preacher, he found his true mission. For in- stance, in his Rationes he recounts the preparation of a bon- fire of vanities at the end of a preaching campaign.

Although this account was written in Wittenberg, it shows that Lam- 7 See for instance the Quaerimoniae presented by the French Obser- vant friars at the Council of Constance, in which they accused customary practice of the conventual friars: Sed quando ambulantes per mundum vident pueros aliquid principium habilitatis habere, ipsos verbis blandis alloquuntur et quantum possunt inducunt ad huius religionis ingressum, promittentes eos ad studia promovere […] dicentes eis quod levi semel po- terunt esse episcopi et adhuc maiores in ecclesia.
Auenionae fui ad eorum habitum conuictumque receptus [ Lambert, Rationes, c. Between Pulpit and Reformation bert still considered evangelizing as equivalent to the moral reform that was the core of the reform program proposed by Observant preaching. In fact, in this episode he described his listeners as resipiscentes, because they abandoned their sinful objects larvas, taxillos, chartulas et similia and col- lected them for the incendium.
In- stead, he wished to emphasize that he discovered that other friars had taken some of the objects gathered for the bonfire, among which was a mask of a lustful girl larvam similem puellae lascivienti. His dissatisfaction with his fellow Franciscans became so intense that Lambert even considered joining the Carthusians. After a period of indecision, Lambert remained a Francis- can. These are heretical! Did they circulate in the convents? Did Lambert buy them during his preaching journeys?
In any case, he depicted this as the episode that induced him to leave the convent de- finitively, which he did using letters that had to be delivered to the general of the order as a pretext for his departure. From France I came here in Germany, where I dis- missed that pharisaic frock when I had the opportu- nity. On the way, Lambert abandoned the Franciscan habit, when he had the opportunity to do so, without noting where or giving it par- ticular relevance.

Salt- em illos legere oportuerat. Haeretici sunt! Lambert, Ratio- nes, c. Acceptis igitur commissionis ut uocant literis ad ordinis generalem, aut vicegeneralem, a Gallijs veni in Germaniam, ubi opportunitate accepta, pharisaicum illud tegumentum reieci. On the contrary, 17 Lambert depicted himself as always faithful to the primacy of the Word of God. Concerning his religious vows, he claimed to be only a victim of a deceptive plot. On the one hand, this allowed him to gain credit in Wittenberg; on the other hand, he constantly depicted himself primarily as one who faith- fully proclaimed the gospel.
This seems to be the cornerstone of his own identity or, at least, his self-representation. I wait for God to tell me what I have to do.
In the meantime, I will do my best to exhort everyone to evangelical sincerity through my writings, both in Latin and in vernacular. The Consuetusines Car- tusiae reads: Libros quippe tanquam sempiternum animarum nostrarum cibum cautissime custodiri, et studiosissime volumus fieri, ut, quia ore non possumus, Dei verbum manibus praedicemus. The Corone is a meditation on the life of Christ that presents some cornerstones of Fran- ciscan Mariology, such as the immaculate conception of the Virgin chapter 2 and Christ taking leave from his Mother before his passion chapter Indeed, nothing distinguish- es this text from many devotional booklets of the early six- teenth century, and there is no clue of a heterodox position.
These similarities are suggested by the outline of this devotional text; by the account of his moral preaching, which used special effects like the bonfire of vani- ties; by his own admission in his De prophetia that he preached following the rules of the sermo modernus and even hystrionice;21 by his own career in the Franciscan order, where he became an apostolic preacher; by his campaigns as traveling preacher; and even by his criticism of the laxity of other Franciscans. All these aspects reveal that Lambert shared the goals and the techniques of many other preachers of the Franciscan Observance for a quite long period.
It was veritate profecerint, pro cunctis etiam qui vel de suis peccatis et vitiis com- puncti, vel ad desiderium fuerint patriae coelestis accensi. Between Pulpit and Reformation not just a matter of distance something like 1, km , but he seemed to have been a man in search of a new direction. One wonders whether he had already decided to go to Wit- tenberg when he left Avignon, or whether he evaluated other options along the way.
Here an anonymous friend provided him with a presentation letter to Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa. Georg, I, n. Jonathan A. Hence, it discusses both a travel of Lambert to Dax as an attempt to remain in France and a mysterious evangelical group in Aquitaine not attested by other sources. Verum tamen sic te vicit potentissima veritas, ut multis pro me scripseris, et libenter fatear, tui causa apud Bernenses, Tigurinos, Basilienses, et Fri- burgenses bene mihi fuisse. He benefited everybody with this preaching.
These things are not strange for us, however it was astonishing to hear this from a Franciscan Observant French friar, because they usually convey all sorts of superstitions. Moreover, what was considered astonishing inaudita were not the positions per se but that they were supported by a French Franciscan Observant friar, as Lambert was still theologicarum Strassburg: Johann Herwagen, , c.
This dedica- tory letter is also in Herminjard, Correspondance I, n. Non quod haec a nobis aliena sint, verum a tali homine Franciscano Observante Gallo quae omnia mare superstitionum confluere faciunt inaudita videbantur; Herminjard, Correspondance I, n. Between Pulpit and Reformation clearly perceived. Should we consider Lambert a Lutheran preacher in a Franciscan habit? What happened in Zurich a few days later shows that the situation was much more complex.
According to the town chronicle of Berhard Wyss, Lam- bert arrived in Zurich on the twelfth of July, riding a don- key. In this situation, Lambert showed that his views were far from the position already dominant in Zurich. When he saw the hostility of the canons, he asked to have a public dispute with Zwingli on this point. A few days later, Zwingli confirmed his distrust in the consis- tency of the conversion of the Franciscan preacher in a letter addressed to Beatus Rhenanus.
Between and Pellican had a peculiar liminal position: he was in correspon- dence with Luther and Zwingli, but still convinced of the possibility of a reform within his own order; he was accused many times to be lutheranus, but he firmly claimed his fideli- ty and orthodoxy. Yet, at the beginning of , when Zwingli invited him to teach Sacred Scripture in Zurich, he accepted and abandoned the Franciscan life. For a brief account, see MacCulloch, The Reformation, Although he declared that he was ready to dis- cuss them with anyone who so wished, no one stepped for- ward.

Nevertheless, his real aim was probably to show that he was reliable. Spalatin sent these theses to Luther, who replied on the 26th of December that he was willing to meet Serranus. Herminjard, Correspondance I, n. The fact that Luther considered a bishop and a guardian of a friary reliable witnesses, shows how much the situation on the ground was still permeable, fluid, and shift- ing. It goes without saying that this project never could come to fruition.
De- spite his self-representation in his Rationes, the position of Lambert evolved gradually and this process would be com- pleted only in Wittenberg. Regole monastiche e forma di vita Vicenza: Neri Pozza, Tired of waiting in what was be- coming a prison for him, Lambert left Wittenberg without forewarning anyone and went to Metz at the end of Febru- ary He said afterwards that this action was follow- ing an imperious direct call of God.
He probably had some confused news about the religious situation in Metz, that he read as a possible gateway to return to France. See also the previous letter to Spalatin, n. This time appears to have been very difficult for Lambert, and filled with many plans, hopes, and disillusions. He worked on an incredible number of publications, had a few moments of satisfaction like the birth of his son and some positive acknowledgments of his work , but also suf- fered a progressive isolation that culminated in the breech of his relationship with Martin Bucer, who initially had been one of his supporters in Strasbourg.
This definitively closed the doors to France for the reformers. We do not know the details of their meeting. Between Pulpit and Reformation Frenchman as the right person to help his plans of reforma- tion.
