...cities in 1484 (the first work in the Breton language was printed as early as 1475 ); at Rouen in 1485 ; at Abbeville in 1486 ; at Orléans and Grenoble in 1490 ; at Angoulême and Narbonne in 1491 . Save for a few ephemeral undertakings, like the one Jehan de Rohan ran in his Breton château of Bréhant-Loudéac in 1484–5 , most were permanent establishments.

...of the apostolic see. On the side of the mendicants, we find the same protagonists, Bonaventure ( Apologia pauperum ) and Thomas Aquinas ( De perfectione spiritualis uitae , Contra retrahentes ), joined by the Franciscan John Peckham ( Apologia pauperis , De paupertate ); on the side of the seculars, a new generation manned the ramparts: Gerard of Abbeville, who was responsible for relaunching the polemic by a sermon , then by the publication – reluctantly, he protested – of the Contra aduersarium , a work dating from the previous phase of the...

The date of 1220 for the beginning of construction was given in the labyrinth. Bishop Evrard de Fouilloy is specified as the founder in his obituary notice, and a charter of Arnoul from 1242 states that the former cathedral was burnt during Evrard’s episcopate.
