Abstract

The text here edited and translated for the first time is a short theological question transmitted under the name of magister Randulfus de Heam, who had been doctor theologiae at Oxford from 1231 to 1243. This work, dealing with the highest good and the intrinsic dignity of living beings, does not seem to be addressed to high-level scholars or intended for public debate. Nonetheless, it has its own unity and a quite solid line of reasoning, firmly based on Augustine and offers the opportunity to know a little fruit of the vast and variegated theological literature produced in thirteenth-century England, likely a literature directed to students whose interests were limited to what their future employment as pastors and priests would have required.
