Hello everyone, recently I have read upon Fraticelli- they were those groups coming from Franciscans who would try to enforce poverty upon the Church, and some would hold that if clergyman does not live in poverty, it invalidates his status. Now, if they did understand “invalidating status” as in “loses sacrament of holy orders”, I understand why they are heresy. However, from the context it seemed as if they thought “invalidating status” meant losing bishopric, parish or said means of someone’s authority in the Church.
If second explanation is valid, they would be considered schismatics rather than heretics, right? Does anyone know exactly of what heresy/false teachings were they accused (or actually held)?
