Encyclopedia > Ubertino of Casale

Ubertino of Casale (Ubertino di Casale) was an Italian minorite and one of the leaders (together with Michael of Cesena; preceded by Peter Olivi) of the stricter branch of the Franciscan Christian order. For some time he was a chaplain of the cardinal Orsini. He died in 1329, possibly murdered by agents of the Pope John XXII. He wrote the Arbor Vitae Crucifixae Jesu Christi.

Ubertino (as well as Michael of Cesena) appear as minor, yet important characters in Umberto Eco's famous historical novel, The Name of the Rose (1980).

CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Ubertino of Casale (809 words)
In the years 1309-12, which witnessed the greatest struggle in the Franciscan Order, Ubertino was called to Avignon with other chiefs of the Spirituals to discuss before the pope the questions at issue between the two parties in the order.
Ubertino thereon retired to Avignon in 1313, and stayed with Cardinal Giacomo Colonna till he had obtained from John XXII (1 Oct., 1317) permission to leave the order and to enter the Benedictine Abbey of Gembloux, Diocese of Liège.
John XXII was satisfied with the answer, but Ubertino returned again to the service of Cardinal Orsini, and continued his writings to concern himself in the question, which meanwhile had been settled, 1322-23.
