William of Paris (inquisitor)

William of Paris, O.P., ( -1314), Dominican priest and theologian.[1]

William composed the Diologus de Septem Sacramentis at the Priory of St. Jacques in Paris between 1310 and 1314.[2]

He was confessor of Philip IV of France.

He was made inquisitor of France in 1303, and began a campaign against the Templars in 1307.[3] The arrest of the Templars led to Pope Clement V to suspend William's powers after a complaint from Edward II of England, but King Phillip's "bold and comtemptuous" written reply caused the Pope to back down and re-instate William.[4]

In 1310 he presided over the trial of Marguerite Porete.[3]
