William of Ockham's (ca. 1288-1347) Opus nonaginta dierum has long been of interest to historians for his theory of rights. Yet the results of this interest has been uneven because most studies do not take sufficient account of the defences of Franciscan poverty already articulated by his fellow Franciscans, Bonagratia of Bergamo, Michael of Cesena, and Francis of Marchia. This book therefore presents and analyzes Ockham's account of property rights alongside those of his confreres. This contextualization of Ockham's theory corrects many misconceptions about his theory of property, natural law, and natural rights, and therefore also provides a new foundation for studies of his political oeuvre, intellectual development, and significance as a political theorist.

`'Undoubtedly a highly important contribution, which any student of the history of natural rights, Franciscan history, or Ockham's political thought should read.''
Takashi Shogimen, University of Otago. In: Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 67, No. 1, 2014, p. 241.

`'Mas alla de los comentarios que puedan hacerse a una obra tan sugerente y rica en ideas, hay que destacar su importancia para estudiosos de muy diferentes campos: historia, derecho, filosofia o teologia. El mehor elogio que puede hacerse de un trabajo de este calibre es indicar la cantidad de interrogantes, conexiones y matices que presentan al lectori. En definitiva, un libro de grande interes que merece ser consultado por todos los que se interesan por el pensamieno juridico, por los historiadores del siglo XIV y por los estudiosos del franciscanismo medieval''.
Rafael Ramis Barcelo, University de les Illes Balears. In: Archivum Franciscanum Historicum, 106, 2013, p. 226.
