This work focuses on the work of Franciscan priest and administrator Johannes Pauli, revealing what his stories, commentaries, and sermons have to say about the Church and clergy. His versatility is illustrated by his use of a variety of short fiction forms such as exempla, parables, short tales, legends, and crime stories, and his originality by the large number of wholly original tales, by his lucid commentaries, and by improvements in tales he borrowed. In all his writings he stressed the spread of clerical abuses such as nepotism, pluralism, absenteeism, avarice, the sale of indulgences, and sexual misdeeds. This work seeks to offer an historical account of the most powerful institution of the late Middle Ages.
