Abstract

Humfrey, deemed to be 'murus contra venenosas linguas'; the friar's dreary aUegories; and Capgrave's advance in the order. Of m u c h m o r e interest are: his EngUsh hagiographies--of St. Norbert, of St. Katharine of Alexandria, St. Augustine, St. Gilbert; and various Latin pieces referring to both the 'founding of Eton CoUege, St. Nicholas CoUege and King's College, Cambridge'. The latter sections are concerned with: Capgrave as provincial (1453-57); his obtaining good will for his order; and his last years (1457-1464) as a staunch Lancastrian. The finest portion of Seymour's study is the conclusion, treating of Capgrave's Abbreuiacion of Cronicles, foUowing Higden's Polychronicon and, essentially, a poUtical history of England, covering two centuries. The general conclusion is that the Hermit identified his whole being with his order, devoted himself to the study of the Bible, and consoUdated past w i s d o m rather than enlarged understanding. Despite his o w n doubts, however, and his clearly expressed dubiousness as to the value of the biblical commentaries themselves, Martin Seymour has m a d e Capgrave remarkably accessible.
