Biel, Gabriel commonly called "the last of the schoolmen," a native of Spires, called also, from his work on Peter Lombard, by the name of Collector, professor of philosophy and theology in the University of Tibingen. He died in 1495, leaving,
1. Expositio sacris canonis Cofisse; copied, with a few alterations, from Eggelin (Angeus) of Brunswick (Tib. 1488):
2. Sermones (1499, fol., Brescia, 1583, 4to):
3. Epitome Scripti Guil. de Occam, et collectorium circa iv libros Sententiarum in academia Tubingensi editum (printed before 1500, without place or date, again at Basle, 1512). Biel denied the absolute supremacy of the pope, declared that the priest's absolution does not remit sins, and defended the Council of Basle as valid and authoritative. See Linsenmann, Tib. theolog.
