Candelis (or Candel), Jean De
Candelis (Or Candel), Jean De, a French theologian, occupied in 1209 the office of a chancellor of the Church of Paris, In this capacity he had a quarrel with the university as to his prerogatives, which was finally referred to the pope. Innocent III appointed the bishop and the dean of Troyes to examine the claims of the two parties. The report, which was written, may be found in the statute which the prelate, Robert de Courgan, published in 1215. The bishop of Paris, Peter of Nemours, and Candelis, his chancellor, submitted. The university was maintained in full possession of its immunities, under the sole obligation of procuring a license, which, however, was to be granted gratuitously, Candelis died about 1220.
