In these articles, Professor Daniel argues that Abbot Joachim of Fiore was a disciple of Bernard of Clairvaux whose tertius status was reformist, not millenialist. Joachim looked forward to the coming of a thoroughly reformed, holy church to be achieved in the near future by reform of the episcopate and the clergy. Apocalypticism in both its reformist and in its imperialist versions is an important theme, too, and the author sheds significant new light on apocalyptic thinking in the mid-fourteenth century with a thorough analysis of Henry of Kerkstede. This study, and three others are published here for the first time.
