Abstract

Long before his pontifical election in 1334, Jacques Fournier (c. 1285‐1342) had been one of the key figures of the Avignon papal court. Not only was he renowned for rooting out heretics in Languedoc, but he also distinguished himself as a refined theologian, advising John XXII on sensitive doctrinal matters. Once elected pope, Benedict XII faced some of the most significant and animated religious and political challenges of the time of the Avignon Church: theological quarrels, divisions and schisms within the Church, conflicts between European sovereigns, and the growth of Turkish power in the East.
