francois rabelais early life

In Rabelais’ early life, he studied Greek and Latin, Law, Philology, Letters, and Science at the Fontenay-la-Comte as a novice in the Franciscan monastery. Harassed because of his humanist studies, Rabelais petitioned Pope Clement VII and received permission to leave the Franciscan order and enter the Benedictine monastery of Maillezais; the monastery's scholarly bishop became his friend and patron.

This is the emblem of the Franciscan Order.

Francois Rabelais’ early life
the pantagruel

The Pantagruel was a book published in 1523 by Francois Rabelais. It was a continuation of the anonymous popular work

known as the Chronicles of the

Giant Gargantua(also publishedin 1532). It was condemned for obscenity by the Sorbonne, the Theological college in the

University of Paris

The Pantagruel
continuations of the pantagruel

Francois Rabelais published two continuations of the Pantagruel after it was condemned for obscenity. In 1534, Francois published the Gargantua, which was a prequel to the Pantagruel. This book introduces a monk named Frere Jean who does things not approved by the church. This was also later condemned by the Sorbonne. In 1546, Rabelais published a third book which was in two parts. The Sorbonne condemned this for heresy.

rabelais later life

Rabelais made several trips to Rome with his friend Cardinal Jean du Bellay; he lived for a time in Turin with du Bellay's brother, Guillaume. Francis I was for a time a patron of Rabelais. Rabelais apparently spent some time in hiding, threatened with persecution for heresy. Du Bellay's protection saved Rabelais after the condemnation of his novel by the Sorbonne. He taught medicine at Montpellier in 1537 and 1538 and after 1547 became curate of St. Christophe de Jambe and of Meudon, offices from which he resigned before his death in Paris in 1553.
