A case study in opposition to religious authority in the pre-modern period, Geltner treats a phenomenon known as antifraternalism from a fresh methodological and documentary perspective. He challenges many assumptions made about the early history of the mendicant orders, and the origins, scale, and scope of resistance to them.
